    However, if you don’t want to hire a moving company, here are some tips to help you pack your personal library for the move.

    • Pack your books upright with the spines towards the side of the cardboard box.
    • Avoid packing too many of your books on top of each other. The weight of the books might damage the spines of the bottom books.

    You can pack hardcover books spines downward and the edges of the pages facing up for more space.
    • Don’t pack your books tightly together. They might get damaged during unpacking.
    • Use packing paper, newspaper, and towels to fill up the moving box. This will prevent damage to the books during relocation.
    • When relocating rare and valuable books place a coating of cardboard between each book. This will ensure that the spines of the books don’t get damaged during relocation.
    • Cover the top layer of books with packing paper and silica gel.  This will prevent any moisture and weather conditions from ruining your books. This is why it’s so important you don’t throw away silica gel, that you get in your shoe boxes.

    Although, when relocating rare valuables we recommend that you hire a reliable moving company. If you are from Palm Harbor, we recommend that hire moving companies Palm Harbor FL. They offer great professional and reliable moving help for all your moving needs.

    Why Choose Us?

    Big Man’s Moving was a great choice for our recent long distance move! They cared so much about making sure that we were comfortable with the entire process. While I never met Josh, he definitely strives to “do things the right way”. James drove our stuff across the country and we never worried about it once. He was super professional, called us to give updates on his location and brought a good sense of humor to the loading/unloading process. I wish Big Man’s Moving would move to our new city, just in case we ever need them again!
