Tips on how to use cardboard boxes to store books
It's normal for cardboard boxes to come unarmed. When you receive the package at home, you will be able to assemble the necessary boxes for the amount of items you are going to keep and you will be able to store the remaining ones.
No tools or tape are needed to assemble the cardboard boxes.
The cardboard comes with the necessary folds to facilitate your assembly.
However, when using them as a vehicle for storing books, it is recommended that you place adhesive tape -in the form of a cross- on the bottom of the box.
Remember that books are heavy. This way the box will have a support point that will not allow them to be opened from below.
Since we are talking about weight, it is important that you do not exceed the amount of weight recommended by the box manufacturer.
This is the only way to ensure that the box can withstand the weight of the books.
When stacking, take into account the recommendations of the box manufacturer.
Remember that the boxes of the lower levels, at the time of application, are the ones that will receive the weight of all the rows of boxes with packed books.
If the weight is higher than the recommendation, the box could collapse and damage its contents.
We are working with paper, it is vital to avoid humidity in the box.
Store in dry environments and place moisture proof bags inside each box.
One of the great enemies of books is moisture. They could render any copy useless, with astonishing ease.
The last advice we offer you, very important, is to write down the contents of each box.
You can use labels or write it directly on the side of the box.
With this step, you make sure you know what's inside each box and know where to look when you need it.
