Moving Hacks To Make Your Relocation Organized


Relocating can be a hectic process, and you might be tempted to throw everything in trash bags and boxes to get on with it. However, sensitive items such as your electronics would need careful handling. If you are not adequately prepared, you could end up losing some essential components or even damaging your electronics. Below are a few moving hacks that would help in keeping your electronics secure during the relocation process.

Hack 1: Have a record of the various electronic connections

If you typically set up multiple electronics in one place, for example, your television, set box, home theatre system and more, it is easy to forget which wires go where. Therefore, before you unplug the electronic connections, it is advisable to make a note of how the cables are connected. An easy of way of doing this would be to take multiple pictures of the cables so that you can refer to them when setting up the entertainment hub at your new home.

Hack 2: Collect and pack all wiring

When unplugging your electronics, do not make the mistake of throwing all the wires and cables in one box. The first thing to do is ensure that you label the wires as you take them out of their respective electronics so that you do not get confused when it comes to connecting them back. Secondly, wrap the cables individuals before putting them in a zip lock bag. This wrapping will minimise the risk of tangling, which could end up causing your cables to fray.

Hack 3: Duplicate your files

If you will be moving a desktop computer, it would be in your best interests to make copies of any important files that are stored inside it, which could mean uploading them to cloud storage or having them in an external storage drive. Although the chances of your files being corrupted during the move are minimal, there is still the possibility of losing your information is something were to go wrong during the relocation.

Hack 4: Wrap electronics that have screens

Display technology has grown in leaps and bounds over the years to provide people with enhanced clarity when viewing their laptops, desktops, televisions, tablets and more. Therefore, it would be essential to ensure that these screens are well protected during the move by wrapping them with commercial cling film. This plastic wrap prevents accidental scratching. It also would work to save you the cost of expensive screen replacement in case of damage to the LED screens.

On the Move: Moving and Storage

Hello, my name is Dan and I live with my friend Barry in Syndey, Australia. When I first moved in with Barry, I realised that our new place didn't have enough storage space for all of my things. I wanted to make sure that all my stuff would be safe and kept in good condition so I booked a unit in the local self-storage place. The staff there were really nice and took the time to clearly explain the best way of transporting and storing my stuff. I decided it would be wise to start a blog to pass on some advice to others.
