How to Pack and Transport Your Model Train Hobby Pieces for a Move

Tips for Moving a Model Train Collection

When you are moving from one home to another, packing routine items such as clothing or dishes is easy. Getting your model train collection packed could be a little bit tricky. These tips and working with an experienced Henderson moving company will help to ensure that all of your model train parts and accessories arrive safe and sound at your new place.

Take Photos of the Display and Each Piece

If you plan to replicate your current display at your new place, take several photos of it. Get photos from every possible angle. As you remove pieces for packing, continue taking photos. You can then use the photos for recreating the setup in reverse order as you took it down. It is also a good idea to take photos of each piece. This allows you to maintain a digital inventory of your train pieces and parts.

Use the Original Packaging

If you still have the original boxes, cushioning materials and other packaging that your model train engines, cars and accessories came in, use those for packing. If you do not have those boxes, the movers may be able to supply you with appropriate boxes or packing material. You could also have the movers do the packing for you. Most movers are experienced with packing and handling fragile collectible items.

Pack and Label Parts As Fragile Items

Be sure to label all of the boxes that include your model train parts and accessories. If you do your own packing, mark the boxes as fragile and draw arrows as to which side is up. This will help the movers to handle your belongings with care. Be sure to remove any batteries or liquid smoke or steam from the toy engines before moving.

    As I am looking at your writing, casinocommunity I regret being unable to do outdoor activities due to Corona 19, and I miss my old daily life. If you also miss the daily life of those days, would you please visit my site once? My site is a site where I post about photos and daily life when I was free.
