 Traveling with hermit crabs?

Hey, all...I’m coming to join this forum, lol. My girlfriend is moving up here on Friday, from VA to NY. She has two hermit crabs that will be in my care as she will be living where she is working. (I’m surprising her with a new tank...I’ve already ordered all the supplies, deco, etc. I’m excited for this project!) I know traveling is very stressful for them, but does anyone have advice how to transport them up the 8 hour drive without too much stress? I know she needs to keep the AC off, I was thinking if she covered the container they might calm down? Thanks in advance.

I honestly don’t know but if you cover them and make sure they don’t fall all over the car than I don’t see any problems.

The pictures are kind of dark, but here you are:








The water dishes, shells, etc are obviously not in yet.

Yeah they travel fine, I’ve always just put mine in a smaller cage to transport them, like a critter keeper.

I carried my crabs from florida to ny, a 3 day trip, in a small tank on the floor in the back seat of the car. Surrounded the tank with items to keep warm. Covered partially with a towel and I took them into the hotel room at night. No problem! Now I have to fly down and have a new challenge.
