Blog post   •   Sep 10, 2014 09:00 +08

Electronic equipment are expensive and require maintenance when not in use. If you are not planning to use your electronic equipment for a while, keeping them in a storage unit is a viable option. 

For electronic equipment, it is advisable to store them in a climate controlled storage unit as humidity can damage them. Keep them in a cool and dry place so that they do not face direct sunlight. Before keeping them in a storage unit, clean them so that they are absolutely dry and dust free. Dust and humidity are the biggest killers of electronic equipment including computers, audio systems and televisions. So, if you are planning to keep them in a storage unit, remember to clean and dry them before storing them.  

Disconnect all cables and wires from electronic equipment before wrapping them. This will prevent sockets from getting damaged in case they are pulled while in transit or during any movement. Pull them out and label them as per the appliance so that they are easy to relocate and reconnect later. Remove batteries from all the equipment as leakage from them can damage the equipment. 

While packing electronic equipment, wrap them with a dust paper or cloth sheets instead of plastic sheets. Using plastic sheets is not advisable as it will not allow ventilation, and this increases humidity levels. The biggest detrimental factor for electronic equipments is humidity. Hence, it is imperative that they are kept moisture-free at all times.

If you have kept their original packing boxes, you should use them too. Especially designed for them, they have thermocol (styrofoam cut to fit) pieces that snug the equipment tightly. This will prevent from any damages when you are shifting them around.

So, keep your electronic equipment at a rental storage space in Singapore to ensure they are maintained properly.
