Packing your electronics when moving office


Whether you are packing your electronics when moving office, or simply packing electronics from your home, you have to be careful. Yes, one is from the office so it must be a bit more important and maybe even more expensive than the electronic equipment you have in your home, but you still owe it to the electronics to keep them in the same condition as before the move. One obvious solution to do that is to have hired professionals t move you. If you are doing a Brooklyn office moving, the choice is big. However, you have to choose wisely.

Packing your electronics when moving office

Ok, so one of the most important things you need to know about packing your electronics when moving home is to think whether you will move them directly to the new office, or is there some time in between, before you have to move them. Also, if there is a time gap, you should consider Brooklyn movers and storage, because in this way you will have someone to move your office and you will have safe storage before the actual move. It is a win-win situation. However, if this is not the case, hiring movers to help you out is the direction towards which you should be going. When you have professionals that are experienced in this line of business then you are good to go. There is no need to worry about anything.


We have mentioned that hiring movers to move your office electronics is a path that you should follow. However, no matter how careful and how big of the professionals they are, there is always room for mishaps. When electronics are at stake, you cannot afford these mishaps. That is why you should be covered by moving insurance. Anything that gets damaged, or lost during the move will be covered. Go online and browse these insurances a little bit, it is a good thing. That is why it is important to choose the right relocation package.

Packing your electronics when moving office- what’s to know?

So, we have covered the basics so far, however, we haven’t talked about how you should exactly pack your electronics when moving office. So, let’s talk about that. What would be the best-case scenario is that you have saved all of the instruction papers of the electronics when you have bought them. If you have, there on those papers you will have all the instructions you need. On the other hand, what are the odds you have saved all that? Slim to none, right? That is why we are here, to help you out.

How to pack?

So, we have another thing that would be good if you have saved them. We are talking about the original boxes of electronics from your office. If you have saved those, you are golden! Simply back all of the electronic equipment in original boxes, there are no better boxes to be packed in. However, if again this is not the case and you have thrown away these boxes, then we will have to go for the best next thing. That is cardboard boxes. Any boxes will do.

It would be great if you have the original packing

Of course, you know that small boxes will not serve the purpose, so you should get bigger ones. You can go and buy them or simply go to an electronics store and ask if they have some boxes they don’t need. If they have them, they will be more than happy to give them to you. If not, keep looking, or simply buy them, they are not expensive.

Ways of packing

So, once you get the boxes, you cannot simply put all the electronics you have in those boxes. First and foremost because they are not the right size. So, what you need to do is to put the electronic device inside of the box and then you need to fill in the blank space between the inside of the box and the electronic device. In this way, the device will not be loose inside the box, and it won’t get damaged in the transport.

Another great tip that you can use is not to label boxes. This is important because office electronic equipment is usually very worthy, so if you label a box and it says what is in it, this box can lure thieves in trying to rob you. They can follow you, try to get inside of the storage or your new office. That is why you shouldn’t label the boxes.

Create a list

Since you won’t be labeling boxes, you should create a list of all the items you have packed inside of those boxes. Every part of the office equipment should be on that list. Especially if you have disassembled it before you put them inside of a box. In this way, it will be easier to assemble the printer, the computer, or whatever. So, here are all the tips and tricks in one place:

  • Have a storage room
  • Get an insurance
  • Find the manual instructions
  • Find the original boxes
  • If you do not have the original boxes, fill in the blanks with paper

There you go. Packing your electronics when moving office is not that hard.
