Use the following guidelines when packing electronics for moving:

  1. If possible Follow manufacturers’ advice for packing and moving. They probably have a lot of experience shipping their products to retail outlets, shows etc. Consult the owner’s manual or manufacturer’s Web site for details.
  2. Reassembling is always a hassle. Try to avoid unnecessary work by labeling all of your components, parts, cables and other items when you disassemble your systems. USe color coded labels for these items and mark clearly how each cord or cable connects to its specific component. This will save you the hassle of trying to figure out what you re-assemble the systems in your new home.
  3. Avoid dust – Dust is electronics worst enemy. Avoid dust at all cost.  Seal the boxes carefully with professional packing tape to avoid letting dust damage your electronic equipment.
  4. Use original boxes if available – If possible, use the original manufacturer’s boxes when packing your electronics. If you don’t have the original boxes, than use professional moving boxes. China boxes are sturdy and will protect your equipment well.
  5. Mark your boxes “Fragile”,but don’t write “Electronics” or “Stereo system” on them. You will be exposing yourself to potential thieves who might be looking to swipe a box or two from the truck when it is in transit to your new place.
  6. Crating – Very large electronics, such as large screen TVs might need special boxes or even specialty built crates in order to be moved safely. Consult with your mover on the best way to pack and move these type of items. It is probably better to let the moving company’s packers deal with these items.
