Storing apartment contents is a solution used by many people for a variety of reasons – whether they are leaving the country for a period, are in the process of moving apartments or need an extra storage unit for all their belongings. When storing equipment, you should think about the conditions necessary to keep it in optimal condition, so that you can use it immediately whenever you want. This is especially relevant for the storage of particularly expensive and sensitive equipment – gadgets and computers.
Storing sensitive electronic devices requires a little more effort, as these are devices that are sensitive to climate change and need proper packaging. If you “throw” all the electronic objects into a crate and then store it, you may return to defective equipment. So how do you pack properly? The guide will provide you with everything you need to know!
Backing up the information
Before you store electronic equipment in warehouses for rent, do not forget to back up all the information that is important to you. Even if you are taking all the necessary steps we have listed here to maintain your equipment in the best possible way, why take the risk that something will happen over the years of storage. Therefore, just before storage, upload all important information to the cloud.
Sensitivity to climate change
Electronic devices are generally sensitive to weather, especially humidity or heavy heat. Therefore, try to store your equipment in a warehouse with climate control. This way you can be sure that your equipment is best stored in a storage unit with a comfortable temperature in each of the seasons. Otherwise, moisture can seep into appliances and destroy them completely.
Use of original packaging
As long as it is possible for you, pack each gadget in its original packaging. The original packaging is perfectly adapted to the size of the equipment, and therefore preserves it in the best way. Once the package fits the equipment accurately, you can be sure that the gadget or electronic device will not “rattle” inside the package, and if it does, the package will hold it. If you have discarded the original packaging, try to pack the electronic equipment in packaging that is as close as possible to the size of the equipment.
Remove the batteries
If you use a warehouse to store long-term apartment contents, do not leave the batteries in your gadgets. This can leak, a leak that will spread and destroy the hardware, whether due to climatic conditions or just the passing of time. If you store phones and laptops with removable batteries, take them out as well.
Look for the manufacturer’s instructions
You should read the gadget manufacturer’s instructions before storing. Many times the manufacturer’s instructions will show exactly how the equipment should be maintained and how to store it optimally, including the need for certain climatic conditions and the like. If you do not have the manufacturer’s instructions, you can probably find them online.
