How to Protect Sensitive Electronics During a Move

Moving a MonitorPacking your belongings for a move takes great care, especially when you’re dealing with sensitive electronics like computers and stereo equipment. Everything should be safe, secure and ready to be loaded onto the truck on moving day. Let’s look at a few steps you can take to make sure your electronics make it to their destination in one piece.

Pack electronics in their original boxes.

If possible, you should always return electronics to their original packages before packing them in moving boxes. The original boxes were designed to fit them securely, and they’ll protect them from dirt, dust and other debris. You should also include any remotes and cables that go with them so they aren’t misplaced during them move.

Don’t expose electronics to extreme temperature conditions.

Electronics don’t do well in especially hot or cold conditions. If your belongings are going to travel long distances in an un-heated trailer, you might want to consider packing your electronics with you in your car instead. This way, they’ll always be accounted for you and you won’t have to worry about them being exposed to temperature fluctuations along the way.

Be discreet when labeling boxes with valuable electronics.

It might be tempting to write “Stereo” on a box containing your speakers and amplifiers, but this could make your valuables easy targets for thieves in parking lots. Instead, come up with a way to discreetly label boxes with electronics so that you’ll know what’s inside of them without tipping off others. You might label them “Linens,” for example, to avoid drawing attention to them.
