Protect Your Investment During Your Ottawa Move

Follow these five steps for audio/video and other electronics packing for your Ottawa move.



Follow manufacturers’ advice for packing and storing. They know the most about what it takes to protect the product. Consult the manual or manufacturer’s Web site for details.



If possible, use the original boxes and packing materials for re-packing. Moving companies do not insure electronics that are nor packed in proper boxes with styrofoam corner supports.


Office Equipment

If the original packing is not available, start with these essentials: sturdy cartons, bubblewrap for wrapping things up, tape, scissors and permanent markers to number and label each box.


Audio Equipment

When you disassemble electronics which have numerous cords, place small colored stickers on each cord and the same color sticker where the cord connects to the device. This will save you the hassle of trying to figure out what goes where when it comes time to reassemble your electronics.


Misc. Electronics

Make a list of the components in each box. With luck you’ll be putting all this back together make sure you’ve got all the parts before you start assembling.
