Moving your bookshelf book collection? Here's how to do it right:

  1. Get the Right Boxes: Use sturdy, medium-sized cardboard boxes to prevent books from getting too heavy. When removing valuable books from your book shelf, consider using specialty fine art shippers or Peli cases for extra protection.
  2. Keep Boxes Small: Avoid big boxes that get too heavy. Stick to smaller or medium-sized boxes to prevent strain and dropped boxes.
  3. Categorize Books: Group books by genre for easier packing and unpacking. Color-code labels or include an inventory list for each box to stay organized.
  4. Wrap Delicate Books: Vintage or delicate books need extra care. Wrap them individually with acid-free paper to prevent damage during transit.
  5. Seal Securely: Seal boxes tightly with packing tape to keep out insects and protect against humidity. Store boxes in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight.
  6. Pack Strategically: Pack hardcovers with paperbacks to balance the weight. For vintage books, pack flat with the spines toward the side of the box.
  7. Unpack Carefully: When it's time to unpack, handle books with care to prevent damage. Avoid using special handling gloves, as they can dull tactile sensation and cause creasing or tears.

Remember to store your books in a safe place, away from potential flooding or pests. With these tips, your book collection will arrive at its new home safe and sound.
