Caring for your precious electronics when moving home

By Simon Dcruz Subscribe to RSS | March 7th 2012 | Views:

Shifting homes usually tends to be a stressful affair. One can have the most detailed preparation checklist, but things can and do go wrong when the packing begins. Bulky, tough and unbreakable items are the easiest to pack. Upholstery and linen too can be packed with ease. One has to start taking precautions when it comes to fragile items such as decorative pieces, ornate crockery, etc. But perhaps, the toughest challenge in packing comes from the preparation of electronic items for a move.

Some pearls of advice that should come as a boon to those who give preference to their DIY spirit, are as follows:

Begin by listing out every electronic item that one would need to pack. This would give an indication about the task ahead and make it easier to sort and check if some items can/should be clubbed together.

Tackle one piece of equipment at a time. For example, if it is a gaming rig, then apart from the main console, there would be a remote controller, wireless/handheld controls, connectors and cables, etc. use tie-clips or cable twists to pack all cables together. This also prevents them from getting tangled and lowers the risk of damage due to undue stretching. Packing them all together makes it easier to hook them up, once you’ve moved into the new place.

Most of the original packaging that accompanies every electronic item is usually purpose built with the singular aim of protecting that particular piece of equipment in the best way possible. This is why, most of the quality moving services in Qatar, advice people to retain the packaging rather than throwing it away. Of course, one can always ask their service provider to assist them with packaging materials. Some operators, like Storage Qatar are known to take great pride in their extensive inventory of packing and packaging items.

Always center the equipment in the box, care must be taken while stuffing it with fillers like packing foam or peanuts. Even old newspapers can be used in place of these, as they do a fine job of holding equipment in place. Following the same principles as for the other household articles being moved, place the heaviest and largest items at the back of the truck and along the sides. Brace them properly and it’s a safe practice to strap them down securely to prevent them from hopping in transit. Make sure you tape a list of the contents to the side of every box.

Unlike other fragile items, electronics do come with their unique packing needs. It is not an easy task as bundling together some books or utensils into a storage box. Years of experience and practice are required when packing electronics for a move. This is especially true, considering that the electronics of today can be counted among the most expensive possessions in a home.

This is why most people recommend hiring a reputed moving services provider, who is well qualified for the task. For further information about one such quality conscious operator, visit:
