Here Are the Most Effective Ways to Move Items in Minecraft


Moving a massive quantity of goods in Minecraft can be quite a challenging task, especially if you just getting started.
Players can also combine Chest boats with Ice blocks to build pathways and transport items.

Mojang’s Minecraft has seen the addition of a colossal number of in-game items over the years and it is not surprising to see that players flooding their inventories and chests with them. Although hoarding items seem redundant, they can really come in handy when you have other builds in mind or when you decide to move from one location to another. Although you can go through the inconvenient process of slowly transferring items, the game allows you to deploy techniques that can make the process a whole lot easier. Here’s what you need to know.

Effective Methods to Move Items in Minecraft

Crafting Shulker Boxes

Unlike a regular chest which drops all of its items on the ground when it breaks, a Shulker box keeps all of your contents inside, even if it is broken. This means you can simply pick the box up and carry it without having to deal with excessive items or blocks scattered all over the place.

Although it can hold 27 stacks of items like a regular chest, creating a double chest will take up two of your inventory spaces.

Using Ender Chests

Ender Chests

This is one of the best ways to access your items across massive distances. Ender Chests are intertwined with each other, which means players can pick up and use things from their inventory without having to open one specific chest. Do note that you will need Obsidian blocks and Ender Pearls to craft them, which can be quite an ordeal to obtain.

Creating Water Streams

Water Streams

Thanks to the game’s physics, players can use the flow of water to move their stuff over long distances. You can create a stream of sorts where the current carries your items in a conveyor belt-like manner. Bear in mind that although the method is pretty reliable, you might have to wait a while to receive your items as you have built a hopper line that drops them into a chest.

Constructing Hopper Lines

Hopper Lines

If you have an abundance of Iron Ingots and time isn’t an issue, constructing a hopper is the most refined way to move your things from one place to another. These are significantly faster than using water streams and setting this up can be pretty intuitive. You can start by building one single Hopper line which extends to the new location. You can also build a two or even a four-way connection later to move your items from numerous locations.

Those are the most effective methods you can deploy to move a large number of contents from one place to another. Check out our numerous other Minecraft guides if you wish to keep yourself up-to-date with the game’s latest changes and additions.
