How to Pack Stereo Components for Moving

You’ll need:

  • Tape
  • Plastic bags
  • Original boxes and foam forms


  • Double boxes (one a size larger than the other)
  • Plastic peanuts
  • Make sure all components are completely cooled off. Use color-coded tape to mark where cables and cords should go in the equipment when you get to your new home.
  • Check your CD player manual to see whether you need to tighten screws that will keep internal components from moving around.
  • If you have a turntable, tape down the “platter” the record sits on and tape the arm to the arm rest. (Pack the plastic turntable cover separately from the turntable, if it comes off, it may screw down.)
  • Put all components in individual plastic bags to keep them from getting dirty during the move and to keep peanuts out of the equipment.
  • Put components in original boxes, or put them in double boxes. The component goes in the smaller box filled with peanuts, and the smaller box goes inside the larger box, also filled with peanuts.
  • Don’t bundle components together in the boxes unless they’re small enough to be separated by peanuts.
  • Seal and mark boxes “Fragile – Stereo/Audio Equipment.”

Moving Tip

  • Get rid of the junk! Get rid of anything you don’t need or want, it will make packing that much easier and save you money.The more stuff you have will increase the time and or weight of the move and will cost you more money!
  • Do not move jewelry, money, coin collections, etc. Keep these items in your possession.
