Tips and Tricks: Electronic Equipment

…Try to store all your electronic equipment in their original boxes. For the sake of saving space, buy similar sized boxes if you’ve lost the originals. Otherwise, wrap them as if you were wrapping glass or crystal (with extra layers of foam and then placed into a larger box). Never wrap computers or electronic devices in plastic for long term self storage as it traps moisture in and fosters mildew growth. Protect monitors, screens, scanner glass and other fragile parts with cardboard or pieces of bubble wrap or foam and tape. Mark glass parts as fragile to avoid leaning heavy objects against them.
