Packing a Computer, the right way.

Your local Vancouver movers have called to confirm your upcoming move. The time to move all your belongings is just around the corner. You may have almost everything packed and ready to go. Now its time to pack those necessities that you can’t live without. For most people the computer is one of these. Movers in Vancouver expect computers to be packed and ready to go before they are moved. Here we will offer you a full guide on how to pack you precious computer.

What you will need:

  • Felt Marker.
  • A 2 to 4 cube box, depending on the size of your computer.
  • Packing paper.
  • Zip lock bags.
  • Packing tape.
  • Bubble wrap.

First let’s build the box. Make sure you seal the bottom very well with tape.

Now place loosely crumpled packing paper inside the bottom of the box. This will protect delicate components like hard drives.

If possible, backup the computer, shut down, and remove all disks, memory sticks, cords, chargers etc. Most computer cables are colour coded, but feel free to label any cords that may need labeling.

Now wrap all cables individually and place in zip lock bags, you can also label these bags if desired.

Wrap the computer tower in bubble wrap and place in the box.

Now for the monitor. Wrap the monitor in bubble wrap and place it in the box. Use plenty of crumpled pack paper to separate the tower and the monitor. If both the tower and monitor are too large for the box, feel free to use two boxes.

Wrap the keyboard in the same fashion as the monitor. Place the keyboard and all other remaining items in the box. Don’t skimp out on packing paper, use it generously.

Now mark the box FRAGILE, or use fragile stickers which Rainforest Moving and Storage will gladly provide for you.
