Packing Electronics for a Move: Tips From Long Distance Movers in Chicago
Posted on: November 20, 2019 |
Long-distance movers in Chicago Advantage offer some tips on how to pack fragile electronics for a move.
If you are gearing up for a big move odds are
you have the urge to just pack as many things into boxes as possible. We
applaud your motivation, but not everything should just be packed in a box, or
packed haphazardly. Electronics, for example, are one kind of thing that needs
to be packed properly. Long distance movers in Chicago Advantage are here to
offer some advice on how to pack electronics.
Make sure you place towels or newspapers in
the bottom and top of the box to cushion the electronics. Large items should be
wrapped in bubble wrap and the boxes should be packed so there is no void space
and things cannot move around.
It is, in general, a bad idea to pack
batteries. Modern lithium-ion batteries can break or even explode when stored
in hot, high-pressure locations. Remove all cables as well because those can
get tangled and frayed.
Larger electronics like your TV, kitchen
appliances, or stereo system will be fine packed up securely in a box, but
smaller things like game consoles, tablets, and laptops should not be packed up
in moving boxes. Long distance movers in Chicago recommend trying to keep the
smaller and more fragile electronics out of the back of the truck.
