Packing fishing equipment: how to do it

/ By Editor / 0 comments

If you are a seasoned fisherman or a fishing enthusiast, you are surely aware of how delicate your gear is. Hence, it makes perfect sense that packing fishing equipment for relocation is a challenging task. Doing it improperly can cause damage to the fishing gear or other items. Furthermore, it can induce injury to yourself or your movers. If you also take into consideration how expensive fishing equipment can be, it’s best to play it safe. Hiring professionals can reduce all of the previously mentioned risks. You can rest assured that Miami Movers For Less will make packing and moving your fishing equipment as stress-free and seamless as possible. However, if you have a desire to pack your fishing equipment on your own, here’s how to do it!

Before jumping on packing fishing equipment, choose the type of transport

Depending on how far you are moving different types of transport may be available for moving your fishing equipment. If you’re moving by car, you can move the car itself. Or, alternatively, on the roof rack depending on the size of the equipment. Next, if you consider moving by plane, there’s one crucial thing to do before opting for this type of transport. This is carefully reading the terms and conditions of your airline.  Nevertheless, hiring long distance movers Florida is the safest mode of transportation for the relocation of your fishing equipment.

Consider hiring professionals

Aside from packing fishing supplies, there are other daunting tasks to tackle when moving. Luckily, there’s no need for you to do everything by yourself. A variety of moving services Miami is at your exposal at all times. Therefore, feel free to ask for the help of professional movers. This will either give you more time to focus on carefully packing your precious fishing gear yourself. Or, it can happen that you are unsure about methods of protection. In this case, a professional approach of experienced movers will ensure your equipment is safe throughout the entire moving process.

Gather appropriate packing materials

Taking into consideration how fragile and tricky fishing gear can be, means that you want to get a hold of durable, high-quality packing supplies. And, professional packing services Miami can help you with that. Here are some of the materials that are necessary for packing fishing gear:

  • cardboard tubes
  • PVC pipes
  • moving boxes
  • bubble wrap/air-filled plastic padding
  • tape

The accent should be protecting rods and reels which are the most expensive pieces of fishing gear. However, properly packing your gear will ensure your entire fishing inventory arrives at your new home in one piece.

How to safely pack fishing rods?

We all know that fishing rods are an essential part of fishing equipment. Therefore, here’s how to avoid damage, scratching, or breakage during transport by safely packing your fishing gear. So, you should start by removing the reels. Then, you go on to wrapping each rod individually. You will use bubble wrap to do this. Also, while doing this, pay special attention to the tip which is the most fragile part. Afterward, carefully put them in cardboard tubes or PVC pipes. All this will allow the rods to remain static during transport.

How to protect the reels while packing fishing gear?

Unlike rods, you cannot pack reels in tubes. Usually, because the tubes aren’t wide enough. So, you should detach them from the rod. Then wrap them carefully with bubble wrap or some sort of protective paper. It would be ideal to place the reels in their original boxes if you still have them. If not, place them in boxes that fit snuggly around them. Finally, put those boxes in a cardboard box and label that box. Now you’re finished with packing another part of fishing gear.

How to properly pack strings and hooks?

Strings and hooks are an especially treacherous part of fishing equipment. Since they are relatively small, they are easy to lose. Furthermore, it’s dangerous to keep hooks around other items as well as yourself. If not properly packed they can inflict injury on the person handling them. Moreover, if stored with other gear they can damage, scratch, or even cut through it, especially if we’re talking about strings. In order to avoid this, pack these fishing equipment components separately inside a plastic see-through container.

Once you’ve finished packing fishing equipment, shake it up a little

If you think the job is done because you finished packing your fishing gear, think again! To ensure your equipment is protected well enough do the shake test. So give all of the containers, tubes, and other packing materials a little shake to check whether your gear is packed properly. Shake the tubes and you’ll know if the rods inside are protected well enough. Then, shake the plastic containers which tell you whether the lid is shut and nothing can fall out of it. Lastly, shake the box with reels which will show if they can endure the shaking that’s bound to happen during transport. If needed add small pieces of bubble wrap, packing paper, or foam inside to prevent the shaking. This is the final step when packing your fishing gear.

A storage unit is always an option

Once packing fishing equipment is done and moving day is approaching, it’s time to think about storage. If the entire moving process includes too many obligations for you consider renting a storage unit. There you can keep your fishing equipment in safe and controlled conditions until you are ready to use it again. If don’t have experience with storage units, consult a guide to renting a storage unit before making your final decision.
