Electric Boogaloo: Electronic equipment requires a little extra tender loving care. If possible, pack your electronics in their orig- inal cartons and packing material. If not available, make sure your mover provides professional packing materials. Disconnect your wiring and code it with colored tape to make reinstallation easier at your new location. Back up important files on your computer's hard drive, and if it has a CD/ DVD drive, make sure it's disc-free. Precious Car Go! If your moving company is transporting your vehicle, make sure your car has no obvious fluid leaks, and secure your battery in the mounting bracket. Have your car cleaned so that movers can perform a valid quality inspection on moving day (a dirty car might limit your ability to file a claim on major damage). Make sure that your gas tank has at least 1/8 tank of fuel, and disconnect, disable or turn off all alarm systems. Remove all non-permanent luggage racks, bike racks or ski racks on the exterior of your car, and take out any personal items from your cars interior. And last, but certainly not least, have an extra set of car keys and alarm remote ready to hand over to the moving team, as well as a working phone number where you may be contacted. | CONTINUED PAGE 198 > VOLUNTEER: Animal rescue facilities, nature centers, museums and other venues, as well as, underserved children and homebound seniors, all need the generous support of volunteers.
