If you have a commercial move coming up in Los Angeles, one of the most fragile and expensive items you will need to move are electronics. Computers, whether laptops or desktops, are one of the trickiest items to move. Here’s a helpful guide from About.com about the easiest and safest ways to move a computer.

“* Take your computer apart by first making sure the power is off, both the monitor and the box and disconnect it from the power source.

* If you’re new to dismantling and setting up a computer, you may want to label your cords before unplugging them. Simply write on a piece of masking tape what the plug is for, and where it should be plugged into your box. Most newer computers use a color-coded system and tiny images to make assembly easier.

* Once everything is labeled, starting unplugging the cords from the box and the monitor. Wind them up, tie them and place them in a storage container or plastic bag and keep them with the computer.

* Once your machine is packed and the boxes sealed, make sure you mark the boxes appropriately. In large, bold letters indicate that it is fragile and that the box contains a computer box or monitor.

* Pack your printer, scanner and other computer equipment the same way, ensuring that nothing can shift while in transit.

* If you have room in your car, you can always take your computer with you. If you do, just make sure that your vehicle is parked in a safe place if you need to overnight it in a motel. You can even move it into your suite, just to be safe. You don’t want to take any chances with such a valued and valuable piece of equipment.”
