How to Pack a TV or Computer Monitor for Your Move
As you are getting ready to move, you will come across some household items that require a little more attention in the packing process. Computers and televisions are expensive, so you will want to be sure you have the proper tools and techniques to get them packed properly so they stay in mint condition.
Here are some tips on how to pack a computer monitor or television for your move:
Tip #1: Make sure you have the right supplies
Ensure that you have the right size cardboard boxes before you dismantle your electronics. Measure your computer monitor or television to ensure the box will fit. If you can use the original box that the item came in, then packing it should be easy.
Tip #2: Wrap it well
Fill the bottom portion of the box with bubble wrap or thick packing paper. This will serve as extra padding. Then, place the bubble wrap over the whole screen and ensure that it’s secured to the front. Then shrinkwrap the entire thing and wrap blankets around the screens. All empty space should be filled with proper packing material, so the monitor or screen doesn’t shift around when it is lifted and moved.
Tip #3: Label
Make sure you indicate on the outside of the box what the item is, then write “fragile” on the outside in several areas. This will ensure that movers will take extra precautions when lifting and setting it down.
