When it comes to packing electronic devices, ie computers, monitors, TVs, players, printers, game consoles, etc, there are 2 things to keep in mind. Firstly, you want them to remain in good condition whilst being stored, and secondly, you want to be able to put them back together easily when you are ready to use them again.
Before you pull out any wires, take a picture of the connections. This will allow a quick reconnection when reassembling.
Before putting your computer away, back up all data on a separate device (external drive, USB, etc).
Remove batteries from all accessories such as remotes and controllers. In time, these may leak.
Put all the wires, accessories and anything else you have removed / disconnected in a plastic bag and attach / stick that bag to the device they belong to. DO NOT mix parts from other electronic devices.
Pack your electronic device in its original box. If you don’t have it, then use a box to the nearest size.
Do not store your electronics in a plastic container, moisture in the air may get trapped and cause damage.
Fill empty spaces with crumbled butcher paper to avoid movement and keep the box solid, especially if your boxes will be stacked.
When the time comes to reconnect, unpack your electronic device, look at your photo and reconnect. Too easy!
