How to Pack Books for Moving: 10 Steps to Pack by the Book

by | Mar 19, 2021 | Features

When it comes to packing your books for moving, it can be stressful but there are ways to move them without any worries. First, make sure to optimize your book collection. You also want to sort your books and figure out what you want to do with the ones that you aren’t going to keep. Donating books or selling them at a garage sale are ideal. Finally, when packing your books make sure to wrap them in some soft paper and some bubble wrap to protect them and prevent damage.

Key Takeaways:

  • Figure out what you want to do with all of your unwanted books, such as donate them or sell them at a garage sale.
  • Pack your books for storage by wrapping each individual book in packing paper as well as plastic wrap to protect them.
  • If you are packing heavy books, put them in a suitcase rather than a cardboard box because cardboard can only support so much weight.

“While reassessing your book collection, you may find out that some of your books have been seriously damaged with time, especially if they have not been properly stored. Other copies may have lost the original worth they had when you first bought them.”
