Let’s see how we can achieve that and let the burden of worry off you.
Refer to the equipment’s manuals
Take out the particular equipment’s manual when you have decided to pack it. There may arise some confusion and doubts about a way of packing and during such times, instead of going with your best guess, consult the manual and do it the right way. Also, either pack the equipment’s manual with the equipment or have all of the manuals in a single bag and carry it with you. This will come in handy when you have reached your new home and want to install it back together.
Take a picture of the wire connections
The wire connections will be baffling to any normal person. Therefore, don’t just take it all out immediately when you are packing. Take a picture of the wire connections before removing them. If two or more wires and looking similar, make a mark on the wire with the label mentioning the place from where it was removed. This way, you can prevent the confusion that may arise when you start installing the electronic items in your new place.
Even if you have hired removalists for packing, you can request to take a photograph before they start disassembling it.
Get the right packing materials
To pack your electronic equipment in, you need to have the right-sized boxes. The best option is if you still have the original box that the equipment came in. In case if you have thrown out the box like many others, then look for the next best option like getting sturdy specialized boxes, not the ones you have picked out from the local supermarket.
If you are relocating out of Brisbane, then you would most probably have hired an interstate removalist for your transportation. So you can always reach out to the removalists and ask them to provide specialized boxes for packing electronic equipment. These professionals will have proper, cushioned sturdy boxes generally used by furniture removal company. You can pack your electronic items inside these boxes and cushion them properly to avoid damage or prevent static electricity inside the box.
It is important to ensure that the box is properly taped from all sides and the extra cushioning materials inside don’t cause too much tension or stress that it could damage the box or the equipment with a single, hard shake.
Label the boxes properly
When packing electronics, it is important to label the boxes so that the removalist will know to handle it with more carefulness. Mark it in a big legible form stating what is. Also, don’t forget to mention which side is up and that it is fragile.
This way, while the movers are stacking the boxes in the truck, they will know to keep the electronic items separately and not place any heavy box over them. It will also be useful for you when you get unpacking because electronic things will be one of the first things that will come of use.
