How To Pack Electronics

Our modern way of life involves multiple electronic devices. When it is time to move, we must properly pack them. If you need help with relocation, call our Los Angeles moving company. Here are our tips for packing electronics:

  1. Follow user guide instructions regarding packing and storing. User guides provide more info about the how to transport and protect the product. You can also consult manufacturer’s Web site for details.
  2. If possible, use the original boxes and packing materials for repacking. The original box and packing materials fit the product the best.
  3. If the original packing is not available, use the typical supplies: sturdy cartons, newsprint for wrapping things up, tape, scissors and felt-tip markers to number and label each box.
  4. Label cords and components. When you disassemble electronics such as computers, stereos and other devices with numerous cords, place small colored stickers on each cord and the same color sticker where the cord connects to the device.
  5. Sensitive electronics such as computers and TVs will have to be stored in climate-controlled units. Moisture or dust can affect circuitries.
  6. To reduce the chance of attracting unwanted attention from potential robbers use unmarked boxes for small, expensive items such as stereo equipment, TVs and camcorders.
  7. Protect your electronics using cushioning materials. Besides attenuating bumps, they will also minimize damage caused by dust inside electronic devices. Wrap electronics in linen or clean paper.
  8. Seal boxes completely with packing tape to keep out the dust. This is another good safety measure.
  9. For further protection, cover electronics with moving pads, sheets or light blankets.
  10. Make a list of the components in each box. This will help you put components back together. Make sure you’ve got all the parts before you start assembling.
