When you have lots of electronics to move during a relocation, this brings a whole new dynamic that you must take seriously. The last thing that you want to happen is for the electronics to break during your move. The first step to ensuring that your electronics are safe throughout the move is to partner with our experienced team at Capitol Moving & Storage. Additionally, we want to make you aware of three mistakes that you can’t afford to make when moving electronics.
Forgetting to Appropriately Label the Moving Boxes
When it comes to moving your electronics, you want our moving professionals at Capitol Moving & Storage to take extra great care of these items, right? Well, don’t make the mistake of forgetting to label your moving boxes appropriately. Make sure to mark the boxes as electronics with the word ‘fragile’ listed clearly on the box. Additionally, it is very important to label the top and bottom of the boxes where your electronics are located so that our movers don’t inadvertently store them upside down.
Leaving Items in the Electronic Device
Another sure way to potentially damage your electronics during the move is to leave items inside or connected to the electronic device. Whether it be a game, movie, ink cartridge, cords or even batteries, your best bet is to remove these items from your electronic device and store them safely for the move. It is a simple step that can go a long way for the life expectancy of your electronics.
Not thinking about Temperature
Especially during the hot months, overheating your electronics can certainly cause damage. So, rather than storing these electronics with all of the other moving boxes, you may want to consider storing them in a climate controlled area such as the inside of your vehicle.
As you can see, there are additional things to consider when it comes to moving your electronics. Too often, we’ve found our clients make the mistakes of forgetting to label their moving boxes, leaving items in the electronic devices and also storing the electronics in an overheated area. Now that you’re aware of the mistakes you should avoid when moving electronics, let’s get to work on preparing for your upcoming move. With more than 50 years of moving experience, we’re ready to help make your upcoming move a smooth one.
