Tips from Griffin Moving & Storage: How to Pack Electronics
Certain things require special attention throughout the transportation process. For instance, understanding how to pack electronics for a move is crucial. Otherwise, you may discover that valuable possessions will be damaged when you move into a new house or business. Griffin Moving & Storage recommends the following guidelines if you intend to pack your equipment.
- Boxes – When packing electronics for a move, it is best to keep them in their original packaging. Despite this, you should seek out or purchase high-quality moving boxes. Ascertain that there are no stains, spills, or food bits within. Additionally, you should select boxes that are free of rips and tears. Finally, pack your devices in a clean and sturdy box, even if they are still in their original packaging.
- Packing Materials – You should only use the highest-quality packing materials like the boxes. Bubble wrap is always the best material for packaging electronics for relocation and is Griffin’s preferred item. You can, however, fill spaces with heavy-duty packing paper or crushed newspaper to prevent the contents of the box from being jostled during transportation.
- Product Manual – Before packing your devices, read the product manual. Typically, it will include instructions on properly storing and packing electronic equipment for relocation. If you do not have access to a manual, you can conduct an internet search to determine whether one is available.
- Temperature During Transport – When examining product literature on packing electronics for a move, pay special attention to any temperature-related recommendations. If you have an item sensitive to extreme cold or heat, particularly during a long-distance relocation, contact the firm you choose to determine their suggestions. Griffin’s long-distance movers recommend investing in a climate-controlled van. If you intend to keep sensitive equipment, even temporarily, you should invest in a climate-controlled container to ensure optimal protection.
- Color-Coding — If you have a lot of electronics, employ a color-coding scheme to identify the location of each box in your new home. On the receiving end, this will expedite the unpacking procedure, saving you some time and effort.
- Professional Packing – If you’re overwhelmed by the task of packing electronics for a move or lack the necessary time, you can hire a professional moving crew. We offer complete packing and unpacking services to save you time and arrange your stuff. The personnel will package, load, transport, and unload everything for you.
