How to Move Chests in Stardew Valley


When it comes to storing your numerous items in Stardew Valley, chests are an absolutely necessary component. When your home gets larger and you have more things that need to be stored, it’s conceivable that you’ll find that your chests are in awkward positions. This could be the case if you have a lot of stuff that need to be stored. They are easy to transport whether they are empty or full because of their versatility. Now, in order to accomplish that, here is the procedure:

Move Empty Chests

When it comes to moving an empty chest, all you will need is a pickaxe, an axe, or a hoe to get the job done. You will start the game already in possession of these items, which is a rather lucky turn of events. You should move in close to the empty chest, and then strike it with the weapon or tool of your choosing.

When you use your tool on a chest, it will “destroy” the chest; however, this only means that you are able to collect it from the environment and put it back into your inventory after it has been “destroyed.” After you have successfully struck the chest, you will be able to retrieve it by stepping over it. If you attack a chest that already has one or more items inside of it, nothing will happen. On the other hand, there is a clear method for relocating chests that already have items inside of them.

Move Full Chests (v1.5 and Later)

How to Move Chests in Stardew Valley

Before the v1.5 update, in order to move a chest that already contained items in it, you first needed to remove all of the items from the chest, then hit it with your farming tool, move the chest, and finally replace all of the items in the chest. This was the only way to successfully move an item-containing chest. This procedure could take a significant amount of time. It requires a significant amount of hard work.

However, after the v1.5 update, all that is required of you is to hit the chest ten times while not having anything in your hands. This achievement can now be completed. The way in which you hit it will determine the direction in which it advances one square.

If there is something that prevents the chest from moving in the direction that you are striking it, the chest will instead move one square to the left or right, or it will move one square behind your character rather than travelling in the direction that you are striking it.

Important Tip:

Prior to the version 1.5 upgrade, any Chest that was broken open with a Pickaxe, Axe, or Hoe would create a mess on your farm. You’ll need to gather the items that are strewn about the room and put them away in a secure location when you’ve done so. We can only hope that the “Quality of Life” upgrade that was just released would make the conveniences that are currently only available on macOS and Windows available on other platforms with older versions.
