Get Boxes from a Book Store or Liquor Store

First things first, you need the right kind of boxes. Your best bet here is to go buy a local book store or liquor store. Book stores have sturdy tough boxes designed specifically for packing books and liquor stores usually have boxes with internal compartments for transporting glass bottles, perfect for organizing and packing fragile collectibles. Even better, you can often get these boxes for free.

Pack Correctly

Packing books is relatively easy. All you need to do is stack the books flat with the largest books on the bottom. Try to place any hardcover books near the bottom as these are less likely to bend and fold while being moved. Fragile collectibles should be wrapped in either newspaper or bubble wrap and packed so as to minimize the amount of extra void space in the box.

Mark Boxes as Fragile

If you buy the services of professional Jacksonville FL movers, make sure you clearly mark which boxes have your fragile collectibles. That way the moving crew knows which boxes they need to be careful with.
