Keeping electronics in self-storage doesn’t have to be difficult or stressful. We at All Storage know how precious these belongings are and want to help you keep them safe while in our facilities.

Remember that electronics should always be kept in climate-controlled storage units to keep them in good condition. Both our self-storage in Aledo, TX, and self-storage in Yukon, OK offer climate-controlled storage.  Protecting your items is as easy as 1, 2, 3 with the following tips!

Package Electronics Properly

Electronics storage means keeping your items in good condition. We recommend using the original packaging because your items will fit and be covered. This way, dust, and debris have no way of getting in the boxes and there’s some padding around them to protect them from bumping into things. If the original packaging isn’t available, make sure you store electronics in boxes with soft materials to prevent them from being damaged. Styrofoam works great!

Take Pictures of Setups

There’s nothing more frustrating than trying to put together electronics and not remembering what goes where. When taking them apart to be stored, make sure you take photos of everything as you go so you’re not left clueless when you go to use them again. This is how to stay organized when packaging them up for later use. Your future self will thank you. 

Store in the Right Location

Electronics should be stored towards the top and back of your self-storage unit. We at All Storage highly recommend using shelves to keep things organized. Storing towards the back will allow your electronics to remain undisturbed when you move things in and out and not stacking on top of them will keep them in good condition. And again, climate-control will keep the humidity and extreme temperatures away from these items.
