How to Pack Books and Files

Sort and Discard Unnecessary Books and Files

If you have hired a moving company to handle your transit and are moving quite a long way, you’ll often find that moving companies will charge your cargo by weight as opposed to by volume. In this case, we suggest that you quickly go through your books and files and determine what items you no longer need, and what is worth paying for. Files, books, and documents are generally heavy and when combined with other household items such as furniture and appliances, the total load might rack up quite a moving bill.

As for files, it is always best to destroy documents that may bear confidential information and the best way to do this is lighting a good old fashioned bonfire and if you’re concerned about the environment, taking your files to a professional incinerator should do the trick.
