Hi, I'm thinking about the possibility to move abroad and, of course, the first thought is about vinyls. Someone has suggestions about good courier services, transportation services or whatever to move a lot of discs in the safest way possible? Thank you

I would not trust any moving company to deal with your records. Pack well and drive them yourself.

with the same money you'd use to move your records with a shipping company you rent a van to go to destination

Except if you're moving across the pond, as it were. Then it's trickier.

I'm moving from PA to San Diego in a couple weeks. Over 1000 CDs to pack up. Mad Not looking forward to it. Need to pack as sturdy as possible because UPS workers sometimes treat parcels like a Gorrilla treats a coconut.

I'll second this.
It's worth a few hundred extra to rent a van and pack them yourself.
Even well-intentioned movers might think "Box of records? Welp, that seems sturdy enough; put that box under the couch instead of the fine china."

I will probably move several times in the coming 5 years. Can't wait for all the fun that comes with moving 1500+ records.

if you put all your records in dairy crates, and put enough layers of big bubble wrap on top opening so they wont fall out of the dairy crate (you can also use this saran wrap on roller that looks like a lint roller to wrap it closed after you put enough bubble wrap on the top of the records where the opening at the top of the dairy crate is so that they wont rattle around, and then put each wrapped up dairy crate in its own cardboard box then you'll be ok to mail it freight.
ive moved three times in the past years with 500 records and same amount cds.

I've moved more than a couple of times times since I've got a job in 2000 after my studies, the last time last February to a bigger home.

My advice is using solid plastic 50 L crates, without covers for LPs and with for CDs and tapes. My experience tells me that CD or tape boxes suffer more than LPs when moving.
For LPs simple fold enough on your crates and use bubble wrap or newspaper to fill the void. For CDs and tapes use more protection, and buy spare boxes since there must be a few broken ones anyway.

The crates musn't move and don't put heavy weight upon them of course.

And follow Yosuke's advice if you can! All the times I moved I put them in my own car or in a rental small utility van like a Mercedes Sprinter.

have had the misfortune of moving many times with my records. I always sell off large chunks and think to myself "What a fucking stupid hobby."

@buried in ohio
do you buy albums before you hear them ?? i make it a point only to buy stuff i havent worn out in years, and if i've decided to buy something i wait maybe 5-6 months to see if i still cant live without it by then. or if they have vinyl specific master.
if its a new album by a band i know and like and preorder it i usually end up selling it almost immediately if it isnt up to my standards. does keep the collection down a bit.

also morbid obesity thats a lot of cds...

Moving abroad? Overseas?

I say put them in wood boxes, well padded to avoid major friction. Then rent a big container where all the wood boxes can fit in snug. Will be expensive, I'm sure.
