NEW DELHI: Computers, tablets, video game systems, stereo equipment and television are all high worth investments which you want to save from damage when you are shifting home or office. Hire a professional company and be organised about the cords and remotes. Experts suggest saving the original boxes and packing materials for repacking.
Essential packing materials
Electronics are usually fragile and sensitive, so make sure you use enough bubble wrap, cushioning material and packing paper. Avoid using newspaper for packing, because electronic goods will not be safe under this protection.
Sensitive electronics such as computers and televisions 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.
Organise your cords, remotes
Take photographs of how cords are connected to the devices for easy reassembling later on. There’s nothing more frustrating than untangling wires and trying to figure out which electronic device they belong to. Wrap up your cords neatly and label them so you know which cord belongs to which device. You could also use coloured stickers on each cord and the same colour sticker where the cord connects to the device.
Knowledge of packing
If you are lacking in knowledge regarding the packing of electronic items, it would be better to read the user manual for the same. This will instruct you in the best manner so that nothing goes wrong during the process.
Moving inventory list
Make a list of the components in each box. Make sure you have got all the parts before you start assembling.
