Packing up your home can become a mindless activity- it shouldn’t, but it happens. However, you need to make sure that you’re paying extra attention to your electronics when you are packing. If you aren’t careful, you could cause some serious damage to your most expensive and valuable belongings. Follow these dos and don’ts of packing electronics that our movers from All My Sons Moving & Storage use as part of our Jacksonville moving services.
Do make sure you are protecting and stabilizing your fragile equipment. For example, when you are packing your flat screen TV, you don’t want to place it directly in a cardboard box. You need to have something in between the TV and its case to provide some sort of protection to the screen. One of the best packing products is a soft moving blanket. You do want to make sure that you’re keeping your TV upright, so that it doesn’t get damaged by any other items when you are moving.
You do need to make sure you’re labeling your electronics appropriately. When it comes time to unpack and reconnect everything in your new home, your labels will save you time and headaches from doing everything incorrectly.
Don’t separate cables and remotes from your electronics. You want to make sure that everything is packed together, so you can easily find everything when you’re unpacking.
Lastly, don’t forget to label your boxes carefully. It would be unfortunate if you weren’t careful with your belongings, and your electronics were damaged because you forgot to label the boxes. When you hire our Jacksonville moving services, our professional movers make sure to label your boxes on each side, to ensure proper handling.
