Removal Tips For Packing Electronic Goods

Wednesday, March 30th, 2011

When preparing for a removal, it’s often stressful to decide what to pack first. Even though you have arranged some of the things from your house that are ready to be move, you can still be unsure if it is the right way of packing it. Like for example electronic equipments and gadgets which include computers, digital speakers, radio, and T.V. sets. These items are fragile and should be kept in a safe and secured box and dealt with by trusted removal companies.

So here are some tips which can help you in a lot of ways when packing electronic materials. First off, when removing or disconnecting the connections and the wires of the computers, or any other electronic equipments which have a complicated wiring system, it is better to capture or take a photo of the wiring connections, print it, and then place it on the box where that electronic material is found. This is for the purpose of easily hooking up the connections later on upon arrival at your new home. Remember also that it is best to pack an electronic material in its original box or original packaging.

Another thing to remember when packing is to have your fragile electronics be placed in a double box. To do this, pack the gadget or the electronic material in a box filled with a large number of peanuts in biodegradable packs and then pack the box again into a larger box filled again with biodegradable packing peanuts. You might think this seems too much but it is very effective in securing fragile materials.

Now if packing electronic cords, you should wrap each cord carefully with rubber bands or better yet, a cable organizer. Remember to not dispose cords which are unwrapped in any boxes as they can get tangled on other items. It is also recommended that the wrapped cables be labelled at both ends.

Moving could be very hard and very stressful most of the time. People who move from a certain house and to another place is difficult especially if you already made a foundation in your house with many appliances such as kitchen appliances, entertainment appliances such as television sets and DVD players or even the couch tables and any other things that are large and difficult to carry.

It is best to inform also your neighbours about your removal beforehand because the removal vehicle you may need will be parked outside your home. Now that you informed your neighbour, it is good to pack your things by yourselves a week before the removal vehicle comes. Take note that when you are packing your things, your boxes that you are going to use should be properly labelled. Make sure that you have a list of the things that is inside the box and it would be helpful if you could make your own simple system to easily identify the box that is being packed.

Another thing you should remember when packing your things in the box or cartons is to not overfill it. Removal personnel will do the carrying for you but it doesn’t mean that they have super strength. In addition, boxes that are overfilled may break under the strain. At the same time, do not under fill your boxes. It is kind of ironic but boxes that are under filled may collapse is heavy boxes are on top of them so make sure you distribute your furniture or things evenly. And when you are moving or transferring your sofa or couch, avoid any sharp objects away from it to avoid damages.

Here are some of the few tips we can give you to prevent you from getting stressed during your removal.
