Packing Electronics

You should take extra care when packing your most valuable possessions and that includes your prized electronics. Here are a few tips for how to pack them to ensure they arrive to your new home in tact!

  1. A Picture is Worth 1,000 Words – Use a digital or cell phone camera to take pictures of how complicated wiring (computer cords, speaker wires) is hooked up.  Be sure to use plenty of light and careful focus so the pictures will be clear. Print each picture and put it in the top of the box holding the item.  This will make hooking up the items in your new place much easier.
  2. Original is Best – Always use the original packaging when available.
  3. Double Boxing – For especially fragile electronics, pack them first in a box with an excessive amount of biodegradable packing peanuts.  Then pack that box in a larger box filled with biodegradable packing peanuts.  This two-box system seems like a pain but seems to do a better job isolating items from jarring impacts.
  4. No Loose Ends – Wrap each cord carefully with cable organizers, heavy twist ties or heavy rubber bands.  Never throw unwrapped cords into boxes- they get tangled and caught on other items.
  5. Cord Labels – Consider getting a label maker and labeling the end of each.  Then you’ll know exactly which cord you’re seeing and where each end connects when you put things back together.
  6. The Two-Inch Rule – Use at least 2″ of biodegradable packing peanuts around each side of fragile items.

Some Self Storage Guidelines

If you have a garage that’s overflowing or you simply need more space, a storage unit may be the right thing for you. But just what can you store in a storage unit?

Keep in mind that every storage company has their own set of rules and regulations for what you can store and what you can’t. In preparing to purchase a unit, make a preliminary list of what you plan on storing there. If you’re not sure whether a particular item can be stored, you can always call ahead of time to find out.

Vehicles can generally be stored, so long as they are registered, insured, and in operating condition. However, you usually cannot store more than four tires in a unit because of the cost of disposing of them.

Combustibles, including gas and other inherently dangerous chemicals are usually not allowed.

Perishable food products and animal products are not allowed.

Aside from these, most storage companies are pretty flexible. Old furniture, art supplies, games, etc., are perfect for storage. Think of your unit as an extra garage or shed and you’ll bring a new freshness to your home.
