No matter why you are considering bringing your electronics to Spaceman Storage, there are a few tips that can help ensure they are organized and safe. If you have questions about a particular type of electronic and how it should be stored, give us a call at 562-696-3924. Otherwise, keep reading to learn the basics.
- Organize your Electronics into Type The first step is to organize your electronics by the type they are. You might have several types of devices within each category. When you store them, you will want to make sure that like devices are with like devices. For example, you might have one storage box with all your VHS players and tapes, while another box has your more modern Blu-ray player and discs. Likewise, iPods and CD players should be together, etc.
- Display Them the Way You Would Display Them at Home Let go of the idea that you have to just cram things into your self-storage unit. Instead, use the space you have to showcase your collection. You can bring in shelves, cubbies, and displays to make the most of all the space you have. This still allows you to categorize everything by the type or time period, but you will have the items pleasingly on display each time you walk into the storage unit.
- Make Sure They Are Safe and Secure You must choose a self-storage facility that is safe and secure. If you choose a unit without climate control, know that it is going to heat up the same way the interior of your car heats up on a hot day. These units can also get very humid. It is easy to see why this might be an issue for a storage area that was primarily being used for electronics.
- Keep Your Electronics in the Back of Your Unit If you are going to keep your electronics in boxes or bins, put them toward the back of your storage unit. This helps to ensure that the boxes are not going to be damaged by other boxes and items getting shoved into the space. Of course, this does not apply if you intend to get into your unit and use your electronics on a regular basis.
