Moving Electronics

Whenever possible use original shipping boxes for computers, printers and other electronic items. You might even consider double boxing and follow manufacturer's instructions for moving when available.

  • Immobilize moving parts and remove all detachable cables and wires.
  • Color code or label wiring for easier re-installation.
  • Tape electrical cords to back of appliance to prevent plug damage and wrap each piece with bubble wrap or foam.
  • C.D.s and software do not survive high temperatures. If you are shipping your goods during the warmer seasons, consider keeping these items with you.
