Packing and moving are vital parts of shifting. There are many things happening at once, hence one faces many difficulties in this labour-intensive task. Similarly, packing electronic items is not an easy job. They require extra care while shifting because they are delicate and expensive.

One can always hire professional movers and packers for these delicate items. These professionals will manage things well in the shifting process. Besides taking help from the experts, following these tips can make the process of moving easy:

Save the boxes: If possible, save the original boxes and packing material of the device for repacking.

Packing material is vital: Electronics are usually fragile and delicate, so make sure you use enough bubble wrap, cushioning material and packing paper. Avoid using newspaper for packing.

The temperature in storage: Electronics such as computers and TVs may need to be stored in climate-controlled units. Seek advice from the manufacturer or your storage facility.

Mark the cartons: Clearly mark 'fragile' on the outside of cartons with breakables or delicate electronics. Also, mark 'this side up' on items containing electronics to denote the sides.

Organise cables and remotes: Take photos of how wires or cables are connected to their devices so that you can reassemble them later. Wrap your wires neatly and label them so you know which wire belongs to which device.

Consult the instruction manual: Refer to the instruction manual of the electronic device to pack the device properly.

€ Seal them well: Lastly, don't forget to check if all the boxes of electronic items are properly sealed. It is crucial that all boxes are sealed properly and the devices are secured in place.
