Tips for Moving Music Records and CDs - Canadian Moving Services
Packing Records

The first thing that you should keep in mind while packing your music records is that they are quite heavy, so you will need to pack them in small batches in moving boxes. If you pack all your records in one big carton box – there are chances the carton may break and your records will get damaged.

Once you have found a few small boxes for packing your records, make some effort to find the jackets of each individual record. And if for some reason you do not have those jackets anymore, then wrap the records in cloth or some packing paper individually. The wrapping of records will ensure that they get added protection from scratches and damage.

Packing CDs

Packing CDs is a bit tricky. Find a carton that will accommodate all your CDs. Fill in some foam or packing paper at the base of the carton and fit some cardboard on the inside walls of the carton to give added support to the CDs and protect them from any damage.

Then insert each CD in its case and start placing the CDs vertically into the box. Once you are done placing the CDs, add some foam or packing paper at the top of the box before sealing it with a tape. You should also label the box with a note that says “Fragile” so that your Edmonton movers take additional care of the box while loading and unloading it.
