Tips for Packing Books & Photos for Moving in Vancouver BC

If you are have books and photos you are planning to move safely to your new place of residence in in Vancouver, BC or elsewhere in Canada, then you will have to make sure that these items are packed properly to avoid any damage.

Here are some of the tips that will help you in packing your books and photographs appropriately.

Tips for packing books

The first tip for packing books is that you should pack them in small carton boxes. Since books carry a lot of weight, packing them in large boxes or cartons will result in breakage of the base. Once you have found few carton boxes, start packing the books. The correct way of placing books in the boxes is by placing them flat. Packing books vertically might mess up their arrangement when the box is being loaded or carried.

If there are any books that are especially valuable or close to your heart then we recommend packing them separately. Since they are more valuable, you should always wrap them in cloth or packing paper first and then place them into a separate moving box for added safety.

Tips for packing photos

You should reserve a separate box for all your photographs and photo frames. Packing these items with other household items in the same boxes will cause confusion and might result in misplacement of some of the photographs.

The correct way of packing framed photos is by placing them into the box on their edges, in a standing position. If there are some photos that are extra special to you then it is recommended that you carry them with you personally during the move in a small handbag or a suitcase.
