Broken or damaged belongings are the last thing you want to find during your move. Fortunately, with a bit of planning and care, you can keep your valuable belongings safe and secure throughout the process. Hedberg Moving Solutions knows how important your valuables are, especially your costly electronics. That’s why we’re here to offer a few easy-to-implement tips to help keep your favorite electronics out of harm’s way during your home transition.
Save Original Boxes and Directions
If you have the storage space to do so, save the original boxes your electronics came in. You’ll be hard-pressed to find boxes that fit as well as the originals, considering they were designed to protect these objects. You may also want to consider saving any packing materials that came with the original boxes to further protect each item. Along with the original packing materials, you should also save the manufacturer’s instructions for packaging and storage. The manufacturers are the most knowledgeable when it comes to product safety, so it’s a good idea to follow their advice.
Mark Cords With Colored Stickers
When packing numerous cords, colored stickers can save a great deal of time. As you disconnect cords from your electronics, mark each one with a piece of colored tape or a sticker. Place the same colored tape or sticker where the cord connects to each device. When it comes time to unpack and reassemble your devices, you’ll know exactly where each cord belongs.
Make a List and Take Pictures
Reassembling your electronics is sure to take substantial time, however, you can save yourself the tedium of searching for various parts by making a list. Creating an inventory list of what you’ve packed into each box will help you keep track of each device’s parts. Alternatively, you can take a photo of each device’s complete setup before disassembling and packing. This will allow you to easily reconstruct each component of all your devices.
Use Appropriate Packing Materials
If you haven’t saved the original packing, be sure to acquire essential moving materials for proper protection. Sturdy boxes, packing tape, scissors, markers, and newspaper or bubble wrap are all necessary to keep your devices safe and organized. Mark any boxes containing breakable items, so you and your moving company know to be cautious when handling them.
