Any vinyl record collector has faced the unpleasant and overwhelming task of transporting their collection to a new location. Whether you own 50 or 500, the task is always approached with hesitation, as many of your priceless new and used vinyl records may be unrecoverable. With the help from the vinyl record experts at Academy Records, you can easily transport your entire music library to your new location.
Here are a few tips to help you prep your vinyl records for the move:
- Protect: Before stacking your records in a box or crate, be sure to properly pack your records in acid-free paper liners and a sturdy jacket. These will protect each record from dust, heat, and moisture, as well as any other bruising from the move.
- Remove The Jackets: While this may seem counterintuitive, removing the record from the jacket (the cardboard album cover) will prevent the jacket from being imprinted with a discolored ring. Pack your records vertically next to the jacket only if it has a protective liner.
- Always Sturdy Boxes: Nothing is more alarming than seeing the box carrying your precious collection rip and your priceless records toppling to the ground. A sturdy box or crate with the dimensions of 12” x 12” x 12” will ensure that your records will stay snug and safe during the move. Wine boxes make the perfect 12” LP box.
Once you safely moved your record collection to your new place, head over to Academy Records and browse the diverse collection of classic albums, CD’s, and DVDs. Trade in and buy the latest pressings, re-releases, and other classics at this East Village record store.
