Packing Electronics for a Move
When it comes to moving electronic items, irresponsible transportation, poor packaging, and quick dismantling are all things that could lead to expensive damage. Do not risk damaging your heavier and more expensive electronic devices. Hire professional movers to do the job.
Electronics are delicate items that need special care during a move – you will want your electronic equipment to arrive at your new home in good shape and ready for use. ADT Moving experts can do the job quickly and with quality. Before dismantling any equipment, our crew will take photos of the way your devices are connected. We will then dismantle every piece of equipment according to the manufacturer’s manual.
- Some of our clients prefer to pack the smaller and lighter electronics on their own to save time. We have accumulated the short guide below to help our clients properly pack their electronics before our team arrives on site:
- Pack the electronic device in its original box if you still have it. If not, use a strong double sided box that is slightly larger than the device. Any free space between the device and the walls of the box should then be filled with antistatic packing bubbles or popcorn to cushion the electronics during shipment.
- Before disconnecting any wires or plugs, mark with colored labels each wire or cable with its corresponding port. This will facilitate reconnecting them after the move.
- Disconnect all the wires or cables and bind them using twist ties so that they do not unravel. Then place the cables and wires into a sealable bag and place it in the same box as the device.
- Properly seal the box and write clearly with a dark and thick marker what the contents of the box are and whether they are fragile. This will allow for more care in moving and greater ease in finding what you need upon arrival.
