However, if you can’t afford to hire a moving company, we have some small tips and tricks on moving your electronics with as minor damage as possible.
Put everything into order
Before actually moving your devices, you have to put some things in order. Things like organizing all of the user manuals, getting insurance, and installing tracking apps to your devices. This way, you can find them through your phone if they end up missing.
All of this might sound like common sense, but usually, it’s forgotten. These steps are the very first things you should do before anything else.
Afterward, you should take all of the batteries out, charge the rechargeable ones, and put all of the charges in one place. Be careful, so you don’t rip some of the cables. If you have printers, you should take out the cartridges, and if you have devices with CD/DVD/Blu-ray slots, you should eject any forgotten discs in them.
When it comes to labeling your devices, it could take a while. However, it would help if you grabbed some small stickers from various colors and some pens with fine tips. Before you start taking out the cables, you should label them and then take them. This way, you’ll know which cables go in which devices. You can also put the same colors of stickers that you put on the cables to the cable sockets. Once you remove the cables, coil them, wrap them with an elastic band, and put them in sandwich bags with labels. You can also take pics of the cables before unplugging, just in case.
Moving your computers
Our computers hold our entire lives from personal experiences to work bits and pieces. So, moving them could cause significant damage. Good advice is to back up all of your data and info before you start packing the computers. You can do that on a cloud or an external drive. You should also make sure that your passwords are good enough in the likely event your device is stolen. DO NOT use one password for multiple accounts!
Afterward, you should pack and vacuum the inside of the computer and make sure it’s alright by checking the screws.
In short, these tips could be of great use when you’re moving devices that hold vital information, and you don’t want them to get damaged. We wish you happy moving!
