8 tips to keep your gear safe

When it comes to transporting your audiovisual gear, it's crucial to prioritize safety and security. Here are some tips to help you safely transport your audiovisual gear:

  1. Invest in high-quality protective cases for your equipment to prevent damage during transport. Quality protective cases can help to protect your gear from impacts, moisture, and other potential hazards during transport.
  2. Label each piece of gear with a QR code so you can track where it is at all times. Using QR codes is a simple and effective way to keep track of your gear, even when you're on the move.
  3. Label each case with the contents and fragile items to ensure proper handling. Clearly labeling your cases will help to ensure that your gear is handled with care and that fragile items are given extra attention.
  4. Use shock-absorbing materials like bubble wrap, foam, or packing peanuts to protect your equipment from impact. Shock-absorbing materials can help to prevent damage to your gear during transport, even if it's jostled around.
  5. Create a checklist of all the equipment you need to transport and double-check it before departing to avoid leaving anything behind. In Cheqroom, you can make a list with just a few clicks. Check it out here. Having a checklist can help to ensure that you don't forget anything important.
  6. Train your team members on how to properly pack and handle the equipment to minimize the risk of damage during transport. Proper training can help to ensure that your gear is handled with care and that everyone is on the same page.
  7. ATA carnets are often needed if you travel to another country or continent. Simply create an ATA Carnet in Cheqroom in 2 minutes. It saves you hours of work. If you are transporting your gear by air, make sure to comply with the airline's regulations on the size, weight, and packaging of your equipment. You may also need to arrange for customs clearance if you are traveling internationally.
  8. Have a plan in place for storing the gear securely at the destination to prevent theft or damage.
