Use Original Packaging
It is essential to use the original packaging for electronics. Some gaming equipment like video game consoles come with boxes and trays designed to hold them perfectly. This means you will not have to worry about getting packing supplies to keep your equipment secure when moving. Additionally, you should use the user manual when packing delicate electronics in their corresponding boxes.
You should also take pictures of all cables and cords to help you identify how to set them all up when you arrive.
Utilize Electronics Setup Services
Some moving companies may offer electronics setup services, which help you set up your gaming room. Such movers will help you set up your consoles, TV, computers, and other essentials you may have in your room. You can also ask the mover to set up your living room to get everything ready for use on your first day. This should leave you with fewer tasks to worry about.
Handle Delicate Items With Care
If you have a ping pong table, pinball machines, pool table, or other valuable game equipment, you may want to make special arrangements to have these items moved. Go for a moving company with experience in moving such delicate and oversized items. You should also inform your mover of all items you have in your gaming room, including the most valuable ones.
Extra precaution is needed when packing and transporting delicate items. You will have to disassemble as many items as possible and wrap them into packing materials as you get ready to move. Ask your moving company if they offer packing services for large and valuable items.
Consider a Moving Insurance
Gaming equipment, old video games, arcade games, and other prized items may be costly to replace. While a professional moving company will always focus on delivering your items safely, accidents are unprecedented. Consider investing in moving insurance to cover items that may be lost or damaged when moving.
