Moving Electronics Tips

It goes without saying that most of us have a variety of electronic devices to pack before moving ‒ all in all, we live in the golden age of technology. It’s only logical that your expensive investments like computers, tablets, video game consoles, stereos, and TV sets should all be protected from damage during transportation. 

So, what to take into consideration when you’re relocating with all your electronic devices and appliances?

Best tips for moving your electronics safely

The following tips are somewhat essential, but we’ll highlight them again for you just in case. 

  1. Don’t forget about the device manual. The manufacturer knows the best how to act with their products, and following the manual will help you avoid improper handling.
  2. Pack devices in the original boxes if you still have them. If you threw them away a long time ago, just find a material that looks secure enough to make a box for your device out of it.
  3. To be more precise, these materials are cardboard (choose the thick one), newspaper, tape, and scissors. You’ll also need some markers to label each box.
  4. Pack cables separately from your devices unless you have original device boxes with a special place for cable in them. To make it more convenient, you can use color stickers in order to label different types of cords.
  5. Make sure that the microclimate in storage units is acceptable for your devices. You need moderate humidity with no less moderate temperature, or else your batteries and screens will get damaged.
  6. Secure your most expensive items additionally. Take some precautions: pack these in unlabeled boxes until the day everything will be loaded in the truck, and move these boxes farther into the storage unit.
  7. Wrap your electronics. Since items like that are extremely fragile, your best guess is to wrap each item properly in towels, packing paper, or bubble wrap. You will also need some fair amounts of packing tape to seal these boxes.

And of course, our best advice is to plan everything in advance and make a checklist for your electronic devices ‒ this way, you won’t lose that easily.
