The holiday season is a prime time for gifts, specifically electronics. From iPads, desktop computers, laptops and notebooks, gaming consoles, or TVs – electronics are some of the most prominent gifts in many modern day households.
If you’re planning to move in the upcoming year, it’s important to pack these electronics safely to ensure they function properly when you arrive at your new destination.
Here are a few tips to keep in mind when packing up your electronics for a move:
Keep electronics in their original boxes
This is one of the safest ways to ensure the protection of your expensive electronics. If you have the original container that your electronic device came in, it’s best to move and store it in that. This way, your device fits perfectly with all its accessories included.
Pack electronics in full boxes with antistatic materials
If you no longer have the original box, the next best option is to pack your electronics in a box with antistatic materials inside. This means, opting out of packing peanuts and opting in for materials such as bubble wrap that won’t bring static electricity. Pack each box full so that there are no empty spaces for the electronics to shift around.
