“Everybody’s got their thing,” Alan said, “and mine happens to be collecting early, vintage rock and roll albums. Like many collectors, I started out with the records I listened to when I was a kid. Things just grew from that point, and now I have more than 8,500 different records.” Alan buys and sells records over the internet. “And if there’s one thing I know is important, it’s that packing and shipping vinyl record albums is a precision job.”
Vinyl records are fragile items. They can easily be damaged if they are dropped, knocked around, or bent during shipping. If vinyl records aren’t packed properly for shipping, the risk of damage is high. If a vintage record album is nicked, scratched, or broken, all of the value can be lost. To prevent this catastrophe, you need to pack records for shipping carefully.
