Storing Electronics with Parcel SafePlace

Christmas is right around the corner, and if your building hasn’t already been inundated with packages, then it’s time to get ready for the parcel delivery rush.

Electronics, in particular, make for popular gifts, with residential buildings receiving everything from TVs, laptops and game consoles to headphones, speakers and smart devices.

Electronics need to be stored with great care. The last thing you want is a device being damaged post-delivery and an unhappy resident. With that in mind, here are some top tips for storing parcels containing electrical items and making sure tenants get their Christmas presents without a fuss.

  1. Keep them in a cool environment. Items with batteries should be stored in a cool area where they won’t overheat.
  2. Keep away from direct sunlight. Not so much a problem during the festive season. But generally, it’s worth keeping electronic items out of direct sunlight. The more time these items spend in heat, the greater the risk they won’t work when opened. Placing parcels on designated shelving is the best way to ensure this.
  3. Store parcels somewhere secure. A Parcel SafePlace room solves all of the above problems and ensures parcels are monitored by CCTV 24/7, ready to be picked up at your tenant’s convenience. Your site team doesn’t need to worry about keeping an eye on residents’ deliveries while focusing on their other responsibilities.
  4. Avoid moisture. Moisture and electronics don’t go well together at all. So make sure parcels containing electronic items aren’t left in damp rooms or corners where they might be forgotten
  5. Keep the area safe. Out of sight and out of mind reduces the chance of items going missing or larger packages, like TVs, becoming safety hazards in the building. Someone tripping over that 75” isn’t a good look.

Christmas time can result in site teams being swamped with their residents’ deliveries. Use our Calculator to estimate how many parcel deliveries you might expect, and learn more about ensuring your building’s Christmas deliveries go off without a hitch.
