Miscellaneous items: Electronics and Glass
It is import to be aware that your electronic equipment may require special preparation. It is important to detach all cords and wires and keep them in a labeled bag so that you know where they belong. When transporting computers, scanners or printers, be sure to detach cords and wires, paper trays, etc, and label all cables and wires for easy re-assembly. Be sure to use well padded, sturdy cartons to cushion the equipment. Mark these items, “fragile.” Flat screen TVs, (plasmas, LCDs or LEDs) will require extra padding and protection. If possible, pack it in its original carton. If these cartons are not available, consider crating the item prior to moving day. For an additional charge the movers will pack all Flat Screen televisions if you would like. All mirrors and any items that have glass need to be packed securely for transport and labeled “fragile” as well. This is also a service we can provide. Please be sure to let your moving consultant know beforehand.
