Tips for Packing Your Electronic Items

By Michel Bayard

packing

Moving is stressful and the last thing you want is for anything to happen to your valuables, like your electronics. Improving your packing method can guarantee that nothing will happen to your devices.

For the best packing of electronics, you should save the original boxes for your move. It provides optimum safety during transport, especially if the foam guards that initially encase the device are still available. You will not find another option that fits nearly as well. If you do not have the original packaging, there are several options that can acts as buffers for your electronics so they do not suffer any harm. Newspapers, bubble wrap, and blankets can be used to wrap the device. Make sure to use tape, so that the wrapping is secure and will not shift in the process of being handled. It is important to note that newspaper and bubble wrap can damage electronic screens, so do not place these materials directly on the screen. Instead you should use a piece of cardboard the exact size of the screen as a protectant and tape it in place.

Make sure to pad the bottom of the boxes. Clothing, blankets, and bubble wrap will absorb any impact when the box is placed on the floor. If you are packing multiple items in the box, it is essential to not stack the objects on top of each other. A layer of padding needs to be used between the devices. The heaviest items should be packed first. However, it is highly recommended that only one electronic should be packed per box.

A hard shell suitcase can work as a great alternative packing solution. The sturdy casing will ensure that no damage occurs to the electronics within the luggage. This option is perfect for those who are moving a desktop computer. Be sure to pad the walls of the suitcase, so your belongings have extra cushion.

When you prepare to pack your electronics, you must disassemble them first so they are more compact. Unfortunately, this can create a jumble of wires from your computer, television, stereo, and other devices. Utilizing a color coded sticker system can eliminate any wire confusion. Simply place a colored sticker on the wire and another one of the same color at the spot where it connects on the corresponding device. This can prevent you from questioning the purpose of each wire when you are putting the electronics back together.

Some electronics are sensitive to temperature so be mindful of where you will be storing your items. Computers and TVs may need to be kept in a climate-controlled environment.
