Proper packing is a must for all types of items, but it’s especially important for electronics. It’s easy for fragile electronics to sustain damage, but when they are packed correctly, the chance of such damage is minimized.

Here are some tips for packing your electronics:

Prep for Packing

Before you pack electronics, remove all batteries, eject CDs or DVDs, and take out toner cartridges.

Use Original Boxes

Whenever possible, use the original box that the item came in. Boxes for computers, TVs, and other electronics are made to suit that particular item, and they are made to keep the electronics safe in transit.

Wrap Items Carefully

If you don’t have the original boxes, there are steps you can take to protect your electronics. Wrap the items carefully before placing them in a box. Be sure that the box contains enough filler, such as peanuts or bubble wrap, to prevent the item from jostling around during the move.

Label Cables and Chargers

Misplacing cables and chargers during a move is super frustrating. Avoid that annoyance by either packing all cables and other cords in the same box as the item OR by having a box dedicated to cables, cords, and chargers and ensuring that each item is carefully labeled, so it will be easy to match them up with the item to which they belong.

Hire Professionals

You can take steps to pack your items properly, but the best option is to hire professional commercial and residential movers. You can hire a moving company to handle all of the packing or just to take care of the fragile packing. Either way, make sure to choose a company with years of experience and a proven reputation for reliability, professionalism, and excellent customer service.
