Protecting Your Equipment When Moving

by admin Email

Here is another moving-inspired post. If you have a lot of equipment or even just a little, keeping it organized can be difficult and potentially disastrous. I learned this lesson in my previous move. I accidentally switched power supplies for my modem/wireless router. The result was a fried modem and an expensive replacement.

 

To prevent such costly errors this time I took some precautions.

 

  1. For each piece of accessory (like a USB hub, speakers, or external drive) I put the device, its power supply, and any cords into a single bag.

  2. Keep all the equipment together, in a single box if possible.

  3. Label boxes clearly.

  4. Make sure each piece of equipment works before hooking up more.

 

I hope this is helpful. Next week there will be a more technology/design-related post.
