How to Properly Pack Your Valuable Electronics

Your local moving company in Fairfield, Connecticut presenting tips for how to properly pack your valuable electronics.

You may not always move with your larger appliances, but chances are you’ll be packing plenty of valuable electronics. Your televisions, laptops, tablets and video game systems are all very fragile and need extra attention during the packing process. Use these simple tips to help ensure your belongings are safe.

Packing Your Electronics for a Safe Move

Stock Up on the Right Materials

Work with a moving partner or stock up to pack the things yourself. The items you should have on hand include:

  • Sturdy cardboard boxes
  • Bubble wrap
  • Packing tape
  • Markers
  • Twist ties

Get Photos of the Current Setup

Capture photos of how cords are connected to your devices so you know how to set them up in your new home.

Keep All Accessories Organized

Use twist ties to connect cords and collect them in bags. Make sure to keep any accessories and cords together with the device so nothing gets lost in the mix. In case that does happen in the move, you can be prepared by labeling the bags with the device name.

Wrap Items Properly

Pay careful attention to wrap each item individually with bubble wrap. Do not use any materials that can conduct electricity and damage your device. And only place one item in each box. Devices can be heavy and cause damage to one another even if they’re wrapped and protected.

Label Boxes Clearly

Deal up all your boxes with strong packing tape and write “FRAGILE” and “THIS SIDE UP” with a marker. This will help you or your moving team know which boxes they need to handle with extra care.
