Use static-free packing material

If temperature isn’t a concern, the next step is making sure to store electronic items in packing material that is static resistant. That is to say, material that doesn’t build an electric charge.

Avoid storing with heavy objects

Most electronic devices are light, but even so, you should be aware of weight limitations. Never store lightweight or sensitive electronics on top of each other, as this can cause unintended damage. Additionally, objects stored close together can generate additional heat which – as you know – is something to avoid.

Given that you’re storing electronics in a mobile pod, you may decide to move them when convenient. But, moving is another potential for damage. If storage is not secure in transition, damage can occur during movement when electronics bump or shift.

Label and organize
