You don’t want to leave these high dollar items without the proper packing techniques. Follow these tips to help you protect your electronics during your move to St. Paul.


1. If you have them, use the manufacturer’s original packaging. These boxes were designed with the particular item in mind when shipping them to the store. If you don’t have your original box, try finding the manufactures instructions on how the suggest moving their product. Many times you can call a customer service number and get specific tip on how to safely move your electronics.
