You’ve probably heard the saying, “time flies when you’re having fun.” Well, that’s especially true when you’re trying to pack up all your belongings and move to a new house. One of the most frustrating things about moving is dealing with all the clocks. They seem to be everywhere, and they always need to be moved correctly, or they’ll break. So, how can you move your clock like a pro? Read on to find out!
Remove the Batteries from All of Your Clocks Before You Move Them
This is one of the most important tips for moving clocks. If a clock runs on batteries, it can be very easy to damage it when you’re trying to move it. By removing the battery, you’ll eliminate that risk.

Wrap Your Clocks in Bubble Wrap or Packing Paper
If you’re worried about your clocks breaking during the move, wrapping them in bubble wrap or packing paper is a good way to protect them. Make sure that you wrap them tightly so that they won’t move around too much during the move.
Place Your Clocks in Boxes
If you have any empty boxes lying around, they can be perfect for moving your clocks. Just make sure that the boxes are big enough to fit the clocks without them getting damaged.
Use Packing Tape to Secure the Clocks in the Boxes
If you’re using boxes to move your clocks, it’s a good idea to use packing tape to keep them secured. This will prevent them from moving around and getting damaged during the move.
Label the Boxes
Once you’ve got your clocks packed up, be sure to label the boxes. This will help you keep track of them and ensure they don’t get lost during the move.
Be Careful When Unpacking Your Clocks
When you’re ready to unpack your clocks, be careful and take your time. You don’t want to damage them while unpacking.
