I'm moving from Indiana to Austin this summer. Hot-ass mid-August to be precise, because that's how my lease worked out. I'll probably split the drive over 2 days.
So, I need some tips on how to safely move my records... I have a buddy who made the same summer move years ago, and he said his move warped a lot of his records. I don't know how many LPs I have (maybe 750?) or 7"s (maybe 250?), haven't counted in forever. Enough that it takes up lots of room and is very heavy.
Last time I made a major move was almost 10 years ago (NJ to IN) and I could fit what records I had then in my air conditioned car. Plus I moved at a more temperate time of the year. I was able to move most of my stuff in my car because I got rid of almost everything I had back then. Now I want to keep what furniture and other shit I've accumulated.
So, any recommendations on record storing vessel (I've used big plastic totes for moving them previously), putting them in my car or moving truck, bring them into air conditioned hotel since I'll be stopping overnight (god, there's so many and they're so heavy!) would be appreciated...
