Packing appliances is an art form. You will agree it is an art worth studying if you believe about how much a few appliances price. Whether you are packing for self storage or a move, this is something you need to get all of the time, first time and right. The First thing to do would be some risk evaluation. Computers, gaming consoles and so do their peripherals and TVs need attention. You may require solid containers, rather strong materials like heavy duty cardboard or wood. Two ply can be a bit too brittle, especially if there is a good deal of handling involved. Because the appliances are vulnerable to impacts, the containers must be larger than the appliances.
Never place appliances right on the bottom of a container. Move shock is instantaneous, and more likely than not it will trash the appliance if they are dropped. The base of the container should be lined with Styrofoam, packing beads, or something similar, to a thickness of 5cm 2 inches, roughly and the appliance should sit comfortably with this foundation. Shredded paper is fine, but needs to be about two times as thick. Whole newspapers and magazines may also do the job, just keep the bedding stable. Very important in all of these items must be supported and protected on self pack removals. Be patient, and be sure that the appliances are packed so they are surrounded with cover and unable to jolt around in the container.
The old reliable bubble wrap is ideal for appliances and re-usable for ages. Wrap the appliance, and then use sheets that are large and vertically at least. There is a risk many people never assume, when packing appliances- Moisture. A day or lack of ventilation may cause difficulties. The packing has to be. Some appliance boxes, such as TV shipping boxes are OK, some are unspeakably lousy. The prerequisites are solidity, and you have to pack them. If you have still got their original packing, that will be useful, but again, be sure they are secure and not in direct contact with the container surfaces.
