Don't throw your boxes!



I still have boxes from things that went bang 3 years ago

I put all mine in my crawl space, as well as all of the shipping packaging I've collected over the years. There is about 5ft of shipping boxes on either side of the picture.

I keep them, they come in handy. Only time you should really throw them out is if you can see into the future

My wife threw my new mobo box out after 2 weeks. Too bad I put the old mobo in there after it came back from RMA. By-by mobo, I loved you!

I guess the real question is: What do you need for an RMA? What is essential to keep for warrenty, protection, etc?

Personally, I throw away incidental packaging (fan boxes, etc) but I pack all others inside each other and into the case box. Then I'm only storing one box, space wise.

I also like the old case box if someday I need to transport or ship the case, the styro and other parts are perfect for that.

I keep all boxes most of them are stacked inside my HAF-X retail box and stored in a closet. And I always store my receipts and warranty info for everything in an envelope plus made a PDF of them aswell.

I try to keep them as long as possible. But since I do not have much storage space my family makes me get rid of some.
