Storage Rates: $1.25 – $2.00 per box / month
We keep wine in Original Wood Cases (OWCs), unless the box is too damaged or has mold. Otherwise:
- 375mL and 750mL bottles are repacked into our 12-pack corrugated storage boxes.
- 1.5L bottles are repacked into our 6-pack corrugated storage boxes.
- All larger formats not in OWC are stored separately in protective styrofoam boxes
|Number of Boxes||Fee Per Box Per Month|
|500 or more Boxes||$1.25|
* See Minimum Storage Charge (below)
*Minimum Storage Charge: $300 (25 boxes x 6 months)
Any client that has less than 25 boxes, or wine in storage less than 6 months will be billed for the minimum storage charge. If you have less than 25 boxes and are planning to grow your collection at HRC – contact us. We can create a storage package based on your current and future collection needs.
Handling Fees: $1 per incoming box; $1 per outgoing box or bottle
This is pretty standard for wine storage facilities:
- We charge $1 for each box coming in or leaving from HRC.
- We charge $1 for each individual bottle that you ask us to pull from a box/case at HRC.
Inventory Fee: $60.00 per hour
We charge a $60.00 per hour inventory fee. This covers reconciliations, repacking, and reconditioning slightly damaged OWCs. Additions to existing collections will be billed a minimum of one-quarter hour.
Corrugated Storage Boxes: $7.50 per box
We repack bottles in double reinforced corrugated boxes to ensure safety while in storage. We keep wine in original wood cases (OWCs) and original corrugated (OC) boxes when possible.
Shipping: $8 – $15 per styrofoam box + cost of shipping
We use styrofoam shipping boxes to provide extra protection while in transit.
The cost of shipping is based on UPS or FedEx shipping rates.
