Default Transporting Blu-ray’s

Hey all, when moving how do you all transport your collection? Mine is pretty modest now compared to a few years ago and I am moving at the beginning of next month so I am just trying to figure this out. I think the 30 gallon tubs would work pretty well, or some regular boxes, what do you all use?

The plastic tubs sound the best. Depending on how you are moving them (car or movers) those resusable shopping bags sold at Wal Mart or almost every store around carry a lot of blu rays and are very easy to handle.

My last move was 3 years ago. All my DVD's and Blu-ray's are stored for playback in Sony 400-disc DVD and Blu-ray changers. I owned 12 changers at the time. Purchased 48 empty 100 disc spindles, 4 per changer. Easy peasy lemon squeezy.

I just moved recently and had right around 26 boxes of Blu-rays/dvd's. I used copier paper boxes from my office and my wife's office. I'd HIGHLY recommend them if you can get them. I was able to store around 60 Blu rays per box snugly and each box had a lid that way so they could be stacked in the moving truck. Total weight per box was right around 10lbs I'd guess so it wasn't too heavy either.

Nice! I think I know what you're referring to, but could you provide me a picture so I can be 100% sure what I am thinking is what you're referring to?

So there are two kinds of copy paper boxes that I've seen. My prefered kind looks like this as it included handles...



I also used this kind as well, though it's not quite as nice.



Either option is pretty solid for moving Blu Rays, but if you can get/find option A I strongly recommend it. I have my collection currently separated by Horror films, tv shows, and every thing else. It made transporting and reorganizing in the new home easy as I just went in order of the boxes as I labeled them and all the movies were tightly packed so they stayed in order.

I know this thread is 4 months old, and you've probably have already moved by now but just in case if you haven't, make sure that you pack your blu-rays vertically (not horizontally) to prevent from crushing and breaking the cases, and possibly damaging the discs.

I've used the Uline bulk DVD shippers when moving on many occasions. I originally purchased these for my DVD collection many moons ago, but these still work well for Blu-rays. There is some extra horizontal space due to the smaller height of the standard Blu-ray case, but for the 50 count cases you can put 3 cases by 2 cases deep in that extra space in addition to the two full rows; double that for the 100 count cases.
