Default What do you carry your carboys in?

I thought I read some where that people carry their glass carboys in milk crates, but not sure. I have both glass and better bottles(6.5, 6 and 5), but would like to put them in something sturdy to carry around in.

Also, I'm planning on getting a couple of 3 gallon glass carboys too, what can I use to carry those in?

I use one of those large Rubbermaid buckets with the rope handles to move my full carboys from point A to B.

I just picked up a couple "general landscaping buckets" from SatanMart for $5 and it survived with a full 6 gal in it. seems kind of flimsy, but it worked. I got two and doubled it up.

Milk crates work too

I use milk crates for my better bottles. Prevents the suck-back when you pick them up.

Now that's a good idea. The stairs may be a challenge, but still a great method!

I usually just carry mine. I have the carboy handle, but after hearing about the necks snapping with a full carboy, I started holding the neck with one hand, and grabbing the bottom of it with the other. Need to get some straps or crates!
