Donate Books to Lighten Your Moving Load

This month, we shared ideas for lowering your move costs by lightening your load before moving by taking only what you will need and want in your new home. We also shared resources with Tampa movers for holding a yard sale and for recycling household items to also help lower move costs.

As National Recycling month draws to a close, we here at Transworld Van Lines would like to get our Tampa movers thinking about donating their used books. Most of us accumulate piles of books over years and years in our homes. When it comes time to move, we realize there are just too many and they are very heavy.  A large (and heavy) book collection can add significant cost to a long distance move — so donating books can save you money and simplify the settling process at your new home.

If you are considering book donations, there are organizations such as charities, schools and libraries that would benefit from taking heavy books off the hands of our Tampa movers and putting them into the hands of people from all over the world. DonationTown.org is an organization available to help you find homes for your books. This is a fabulous resource for donating books as well as many other household items. They will match you up with a local organization that will pick up your donation right from your home.

Donate your books! It’s simple and rewarding. You will lighten up your Tampa moving load, save in moving costs, and feel great about putting your books in the hands of those who will love them. At Transworld Van Lines, we like to help make your move as smooth and easy as possible.
