When moving books the important thing to remember is to pack light. Recently the guys at Find My Man and Van had what amounted to a small library to move in Liverpool. The van was booked using our online quote system, so the customer could easily compare the man and van prices in the area and then leave a message to his driver that there was to be a quantity of books along with other items of furniture and some suitcases.
As there were over 500 books to move our driver called them ahead of time to offer packing advice. Although our Liverpool Man with a Van services are super they are not superhuman - a box packed full of books weighs much more than you would expect. Not only does this make them very difficult to lift but it also makes the boxes liable to split or break, in turn meaning that the contents are susceptible to damage. So always pack books sparingly, spread across multiple boxes. Do not fill the box with books, a few in the bottom, followed by lighter objects or even clothes is ideal.
