It’s easy to overlook your electronics, their cords, and remotes when you are in the frenzy of packing to move. But if they’re not packed correctly, they can easily become lost or damaged during the move. When it comes to your electronics, they are some of the most exposed and dedicated things you’ll be moving. These tips will ensure your electronics make it to your new home safely.
Tips for Packing Electronics
Organization is key
Cords to electronics are known for getting tangled over time. While it may be tempting to just lump all your cords together and throw them in the same box, you will thank yourself later if you untangle them and organize them first. Using twist ties, help keep them all together. And be smart and label each cord saying what gear it goes with. When you unpack and are ready to reassemble this process will avoid confusion and save massive amounts of time and frustration..
We hope you kept the manual
Taking your electronics down is the easy part. The difficult process comes when it is time to set them back up again at your new place. If you kept your instruction manuals, you might save yourself a lot of time and frustration. If you threw out your manuals, try not to stress out. You may be able to find an online manual or a video tutorial to help you set things up.
Backup pictures and storage
Moving something as delicate as a computer or camera can be nerve-racking. There’s a lot of stuff in them that you probably hold in high value and that are irreplaceable. So the best idea before moving something that stores pictures and important information like that is to backup the files onto a disc or hard drive. You can always back things up to the iCloud as well.
Don’t skimp on the padding
Electronics can be delicate, especially if you’re packing a TV or computer. If they shift around during the move, they can easily become damaged. One way to ensure that your electronics are safe is to use padding when packing them away. This helps keep a tight fit in the box and minimized movement. For larger electronics, having the help of a professional moving company can help ensure that your things get packed away, cased, and loaded safely.
