Okay, here's the 411; the Wife, Daughter, the cat and I are moving from Northern California to Central Indiana the end of this month. I have a butt-tonne of guitars, basses, mandolins, violins, amps and a ukulele that all have to go with us. I'm going to rent a 26' U-Haul for the move (the wife will drive the Ford Explorer) so here's the question I'm putting forth; how did you move your gear and what was the net result? Would you have done something differently? I'm thinking hard cases for everything but is this overkill? I dunno, tie them to the hood of the U-Haul so I can keep and eye on them? Jam them all in one big refrigerator box with a cr@p-load of packing peanuts? Discuss.
