How to Properly Store Your Electronics

Admin | Apr 21, 2020

Using storage units for electronics is a great option if you have electronics that aren’t being used around your home or business. Storing computers or other electronics in storage units in Buckley, WA is easy when you know what to do. We’ve compiled a list of things you should do before putting your electronics in self-storage to make things easier. Here’s how it’s done:

Original Packaging or Safe Alternatives

First and foremost, check the owner manual for storing and packaging directions. Then, put your electronics back in their original packaging for safekeeping. If the original packaging isn’t available, anti-static foam is a great alternative for keeping screens on monitors and computers safe and sound. Pack them in a box with padding to make sure they aren’t broken in the move, and you’re good to go!

Taking Photos and Keeping Accessories Together

Before taking everything apart, make sure to take photos of the connections so you aren’t lost when trying to put it back together. Make sure all of the cords and accessories are wrapped up neatly and stored with the electronics to ensure it’s all together when you need it again. Using colored stickers to label your accessories will also help.

Storing Electronics in Self Storage

Most electronics are sensitive to humidity and temperature, so keeping them in a climate-controlled storage unit is usually best. You should also be aware of the placement in your storage unit, as these are fragile items that can break if disturbed. Putting them at the bottom and the back of your storage unit means they will be disrupted less.
