When packing for a move one of the things that are overlooked are books and in some cases an entire home library. If you’ve been collecting first editions then chances are you’d want your books to be safely transported by you or a professional but if it’s just your collection of John Grisham paperbacks that you’ve been buying for long flights then we could probably store them in removal boxes. Here are a few tips to help you store your literary gems.|
Lighten your load
I know that for some of us, we see our collection of books as either an investment or simply part of a longer bucket list that you have yet to accomplish. It’s time then to trim the fat and dispose of the titles that you have no plans of reading again or the ones that you feel others may benefit from. Talk to your local charities that would be happy to take the books off your hand or you could also sell your books at a garage sale or on ebay.
If you haven’t considered hiring a prepacker to help you with your move then now would be the perfect time to talk to your partner about getting someone to aid you in storing everything. A professional prepacker can pack things fast and more efficient but if you don’t want to hire one, then just call on your friends to help you store your items in removal boxes.
Size-up, Pack and Repeat:
The next thing you should do is to make a stack of similarly sized books together as well as a stack for bigger heavier books. This assures that no paper backs will be mixed in the removals box with the hardbound books. The first thing you should do is place the books standing upright because it will be more stable and it would also conserve inside the moving box. Make sure that you don’t leave any gaps because it would give the books room to wiggle around while you’re transporting them. Make sure that you don’t place anything underneath the books because chances are they’ll get crushed or the books themselves could get damaged.
