5 Moving Tips to Help You Safely Pack Electronics, Ewa, Hawaii

If you’re packing for an upcoming move, you’ll discover there are different methods for safely boxing up and moving different types of belongings. Electronics, for instance, are expensive investments and often require more thought to avoid damaging components. Here are a few ways you can pack your electronics to prevent harm. 

How to Pack Your Electronics for an Upcoming Move

1. Put Back in the Original Box

Ideally, you kept the original boxes of your pricier electronics equipment. These particular boxes offer fitted packing materials and will decrease the risk of harm while relocating the items. 

2. Use Appropriate Materials

When you don’t have the original packaging, find thick-walled boxes slightly bigger than the intended object that offer plenty of support. Wrap the item in a linen or blanket to avoid scratches, then in an anti-static packing material like bubble wrap to add further protection.

3. Wrap Separately

movingWhile it is not recommended to pack multiple electronics together, it is sometimes possible for smaller items. However, wrap each of them individually to avoid them rubbing against each other during the move. 

4. Organize & Tag Cords

Avoid the hassle of sorting through a box of tangled electronic cords. When packing cords, wrap them neatly and add a colored sticker or ribbon to identify their corresponding device. For instance, all the cords needed for your computer might be blue while those that plug into your TV are orange. 

5. Label 

Your electronic devices are no doubt some of the most expensive possessions you own. Make sure each box containing one of these items is clearly labeled “fragile” and “this side up” to ensure your movers handle it safely.
