Move Electronic Devices Safely

Moving electronic devices is an integral part of any move. However, Individuals are often kept misinformed about the best practices to keep electronics safe from being damaged. It can involve sizable financial losses while packing electronics for your next move. Hence, there are some considerations to take care to keep electronic devices safe.

1) Backup your data

Start by making sure that the photos and necessary documents are copied to keep at safe storage separately. Take a backup of your computer and stay prepared, in case any mishap happens.

2) Be mindful of extreme temperatures

Electronics are sensitive to extreme temperatures, you may want to consider packing them to carry with you, instead of loading them on the truck. For example, ink cartridges are sensitive to extreme temperatures. We advise avoiding the mess by putting the devices into the plastic bag and move them accordingly.

3) Proper placement makes all the difference

If possible, try to store larger electronics items like computer or TV on the floor. Preferably put them in the back of the storage unit. This will be an advantage of giving protection by leaning up against the wall.

4) Protect the screens

If your electronic devices have delicate screens on them, you have to be particularly mindful to keep the screen safe from being damaged. For some gadgets, it is easy for the screens to get scratched, warped or completely broken. When packing devices with screens, our low-cost removal service on the Gold Coast thoroughly wrap it with padded clothing. It will absorb the impacts over the haul. Moreover, you should avoid placing sharp items in the boxes with these devices, as this could put them at a higher risk of suffering damage.

5) Prevent the cords from being tangled

Electronic items often come with the cords to get the power and have communication with other devices. However, it is important to understand that cords can suffer extensive damage if get tangled somehow. Upon experiencing the damages, it won’t be easy to repair the damages. The tangles will be potentially pulling the wiring inside the cord and make them loose. You should gently wrap these cords around the paper towel rolls or other cylindrical items, which will help to prevent the damage.

6) Avoid overpacking boxes with electronics

When you pack electronic items in boxes, it is wise to under pack them. This may seem wasteful, but the boxes that are packed heavily can be at risk of having the bottom fall out. If this occurs, the electronics can suffer extensive damage. So, besides limiting the weight of these boxes, you should reinforce the packing tape at the bottom of these boxes.

Don’t forget to hold onto the instruction giving in the operating manuals of your electronic item. This will help you reassemble everything correctly after moving electronics to the new location. During this process of packing, you might get nervous with the thought of preparing how to move all the expensive electronic devices. So, contacting Richards Gold Coast Removals can save you on moving day with the necessary assistance.

7) Use the right materials

You need to have appropriate packing materials and the right kind of boxes for each type of gadget you are packing. Here you have to be sure that the boxes you opt for, are slightly larger than the size of the device that is being packed. It will be best if you have still retained the original packing boxes. Use them.

Use sturdy packaging tapes for making sure that the boxes remain sealed in spite of the long journey during the move. It is better the look for the local removalists of Gold Coast area. These companies use anti-sacking materials like bubble-wrap and packing blankets to avoid scratches or damage to the gadgets.

8) Clearly label all boxes that contain electronics

Like fragile items, it’s extremely important that all boxes containing electronics are labelled accordingly to ensure extra precautions are taken by your removalist team. This is to make the movers aware of the content of the boxes. Do not forget to mention the word, ‘fragile’ or ‘handle with care’ as this will make them aware of the sensitivity of the content of the boxes.

The best step is to bestow the responsibility to the experienced and reputable reputable Gold Coast furniture removalists. Besides taking care of the furniture, these companies also take care of the electronic device and make sure they are moved with utmost care and compassion. Hence, you do not have to spend sleepless nights over your packing woes.

I was deeply impressed by Pat's thorough & kind communication style when I made some inquiries. I had never experienced such friendly & informative responses from any other removalist companies I contacted before. On the day, Pat's guys arrived right on time. Te & the team did an amazing job for me. They were all very courteous and brilliantly fast & smart. I have hired many removalists before and experienced them stretching out time, damaging my furniture, and stopping work & smoking cigarettes for ages when I wasn't on-site. Pat's guys Te & the team worked incredibly hard and got the job done very well in half the time other companies' guys would have. I can highly recommend Richards Removals. Richards would tremendously reduce the enormous stress & hassle of your relocating. Pat, Te & the team, thank you very much!!

I would highly recommend using Richards, they moved me from my home into a storage unit. The two young men completed the move without an issue and in very efficient time. Ash and Jake were very personable and polite. I am using Richards again to move from the storage unit to the new house and have requested these two young gentlemen do the move. I was asked by a neighbour could I recommend someone for their move in January so I of course said Richards.
