Separate all books in different sections like for friends, for donation, and the pile of useless books. The categorized process can be hard and hectic. Therefore, you must sure that you have to collect all the books from your home in one place.
Now after collecting the books, the packing process is started. Arrange the pile in certain sections and arrange some boxes for them. There are many book boxes are available in the market. Go and buy them for your books. You buy books with full emotions and so send them with full protocol. Label all boxes with the right purpose.

Therefore, it is necessary to have a strong box that could handle the weight of books.
On the other hand, if you have some books that they have a hardcover. You should apply some moving paper and place them in the bottom of the boxes. They will be safe when you place them in the truck and containers will not damage. Because while moving, movement and denting can occur,
Pack your pile of books:
Time has come to pack the bundle of books. Start your packing with the biggest and heaviest books in the book’s boxes. In the bottom, keep heavy books, then medium books, and in the end, keep small size books. If you have large books but are lightweight, adjust them at the bottom with heavy books.
If you find some space between books, fill that space with other lightweight items. Don’t try to fill the gap with heavy items because the box weight will increase and make difficult to lift. Clothing stuff is the ideal to pack with the books. Because they are lightweight and you can adjust them by rolling shape.
Seal your book boxes:
Book boxes will be super heavy than any other material. Therefore, you need to seal them care. As you finish your packing, you have to seal them with the packaging tape. Seal the entire box in such a way that it should not leave any area in the box. The top and bottom of the boxes should pack and seal with extra care.
Books packing is tricky and needs some time to finish it. Therefore, enough time needs in packing and sealing. All tasks should do with perfection. You can take the help of your friends and family member as well.
Time to move:
Labeling is necessary before moving. With this, you will be able to know, what should do correctly with all the packing stuff. Books are heavy stuff so don’t place them on the top on the truck. Because they can damage any fragile items if you have placed under them. After figuring out what books you will be easy to arrange them. If you have some books that some emotional feelings are attached to them, it would be better to store them.
