Given that it's the summer and people are moving and will eventually be going back to school, advice from a blogger working for a moving company that shares some tips about packing vinyl records seems timely. The focus is on keeping your vinyl from getting scratched in transit. The advice sounds reasonable but it left me thinking about all sorts of other issues that could arise. Since I doubt I'm the only one who wonders about such things, please share your tips for packing and moving vinyl in the comments.

Warren Stockstill of Atmosphere Movers recently wrote about “Packing Vinyl Collections Without Scratches," (via @hifidelics) sharing 3 steps:

A) Get poly sleeves for each individual record.
