Electronics play a very important role in society today. Whether it’s for professional or personal purposes, they are known to make life easier and more efficient. So with that being said, if you are or ever have been in a situation that requires you to move your valuable electronic investments, you will want to do everything in your power to protect them. Listed below are tips to help consumers when moving their electronic equipment.

Keep the Instructions- Hold onto the instructions/operating manuals that come with your electronics. In the case of moving or having to transport electronic equipment, this will allow you to reassemble everything correctly after you move your electronics to a new location. Keeping the instructions and operating manual will also help ensure maximum performance levels after everything is moved and reconnected.

Pictures are Worth a Thousand Words- Some people are visually minded, preforming better when they can physically see something as a reference point. With this in mind, it is always a wise idea to take a picture of the assembled electronic product prior to moving it. If you are a visually oriented person, this will give you a great reference point if you have to reassemble your electronic equipment at a new location.

Use Protective Packing Material- If you are unable to use the original storage container that your electronics came in, make sure to use protective packing material. Styrofoam and bubble wrap are great options to keep in mind. Both of these materials can protect electronics by cushioning the blow and preventing scratching should your electronic equipment bump up against something during storage.

Proper Placement Makes a Difference- If you can avoid it, try not to store larger electronic items such as computers or TV’s on the floor. Put them in the back of a storage unit if possible. In most cases, this will give them protection by leaning up against a wall, which will give them further protection while being stored.

Consider ​Temperature Controlled Environment- Excessive weather conditions, either too hot or too cold, can dramatically effect the performance of electronic equipment. Several storage companies offer options with a ​temperature controlled​ storage facility. In addition to this, many storage units are capable of protecting against various weather conditions, keeping your electronics safe and secure until they are ready for use again.
