    At home on the couch with the flu - put paid to my NYs plans.....

    Anyway, I need to store my LPs in boxes for a while. Does anyone have any easily available options? e.g. plastic or the old wooden boxes etc. Must be cheap

    Many thanks

    Whether it's cheap or not depends on how many you need. I hope the OP doesn't need as many as I will shortly.

    You can also build them like this. A hand saw,some nails,hammer and glue. Rent a brad nailer and a power miter saw for a day will make this fly. Jigged up you can make a shit load in a day.

    Getting rid of the center slat would save on material and not compromise the strength of the box if you use good carpenters glue.

    Safestore do some double wall cardboard boxes with lids is it. About 130 LPs per box, pretty strong and durable. You don't have to use thier amenities, you can walk in off the street and buy them there. Discount for large nos.

    10 of these assisted me in moving the LPs behind the sofa when a new one arrived.

    Tony L Administrator do a nice double-wall box that holds about 80, I don't think they have them listed on the website, but if you phone them they'll know what you are on about. IIRC they are about £1.50 each and they are strong. I've moved / stored my whole collection in them with zero, and I mean zero damage - not a single creased or dinged cover corner, so highly recommended.

    Hi all - first post so please be nice

    I have a modest sideline buying and selling records and often have up to 8,000 LPs in my stock room awaiting sale. If you ever make it to the big fair in Utrecht (which is the only place I sell) please drop by stand 205/6 and say hello.

    My solution is the "small" box from Big Yellow Storage. Perfect size for LPs with a little space at each side and a little headroom as well. Box

    They hold about 75 LPs so they are easy to lift and I stack them 5 high very happily.
