Prepping to Move Your Home Studio and Benefits of VIP Moving Services
August 10, 2016
When it comes to moving your home studio, it is best to be very cautious. You have thousands of dollars invested in equipment and supplies that you do not want damaged! Below are some top tips to keep your valuables safe and reasons to use VIP moving services to ensure your items make it to their new location safe and sound.
Pack Safely: When packing up your equipment, one of the best things you can do is to pack them back into the original boxes they came in. This way, they will fit perfectly into the space and have all the needed padding necessary to maintain their quality. However, if you do not have the boxes, don’t fret! Find boxes similar in size as your equipment and then use plenty of packing material to ensure they are snug.
Seal Properly: Once all materials are secured in boxes, make sure the boxes are sealed. Always tape boxes in addition to folding them to make sure the bottom does not open and spill the contents. Have racks? Consider leaving equipment on them. In the Home Studio article “Tips for Moving Your Home Studio,” they explained their success in keeping racks intact and making sure they were in a safe place on the moving truck.
Label for Easy Organization: If you pack boxes that do not use original packaging, be sure to label them properly. This will allow you to be able to find all contents as you are unpacking everything into the new studio. A few ideas for great organization include using a color label system for boxes that need to be unpacked together and making sure to write labels on everything. Also, be sure to mark “fragile” on boxes to use extra caution with.
Save and Backup!: The time just before your move is a great time to make sure you have all of your files and that they make it safely through the move with you. It is also a great time to review your current methods of backup to ensure everything you are working on does not get lost. First, review how you have everything saved and take some time to clean up and re-organize if there are any ways to make items easier to find. Then second, you may want to invest in backing up your files. The work you have done will require quite a bit of storage space to backup and there are a few easy methods. First, you can invest in a portable hard drive. These hook up to your computer the same way a USB drive will and you can save a copy of all files there. Your other option is a cloud service, such as DropBox or Google Drive. There are payment plans out there that allow you to buy as much storage as you need.
