Substitute for Anti Static Bags

Go to solution Solved by Dedayog,

What protects the top?

 

Seriously not going to say it again, go to a packing store and do it right.

I'm going to sell my old X570 Gaming Pro Carbon soon.

 

However, I realized I lost the one and only static bag that came with the mobo.

 

For those who also lost their static bags too, what kind of alternatives did you use? I've struck a deal with a buyer, and I'll make the transaction in 3 days. I need something to bag the motherboard, otherwise I'll have to put it in a box without bagging it. I don't want to have an unhappy buyer just because of this. To make things complicated, I visited the electronics store to buy some static bags, and unfortunately they do not sell them. People said newspaper and bubble foam, and the clerk at the store said plastic bags work too, but I cannot decide which one.

 

For those who can give suggestions, I would deeply appreciate it.

There are no electronics stores near you at all?  They'll have bags.

 

Otherwise I have just used the motherboard box alone and it's been fine.  Anti static isn't necessary always.

I've been to the most well-known electronic store in where I live. Tried 3 different stores, to no avail. The people there do not sell them, nor they have idea where to sell them. One old man however, suggested I use a plastic bag, which I was reluctant to do so.

If you're handing off in person, just the mobo box will be fine. If you're going to ship, you should buy a new anti static bag. You should be able to find some at an electronics store or online.

 

I think these would be big enough for a mobo: https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B07FSD9MB9/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_glc_fabc_SH4RV1AZFK98PCGYGB2G

The buyer lives far away, so I have to deliver it.

Then yeah, just get some through Amazon. Unfortunately, something like this always has to be bought in bulk, but the cost isn't that crazy and they don't go bad or anything.

Sorry I read it as hardware store, not electronics store.  I apologize.

 

When you say "deliver", you mean you have to use a shipping company to get it to him.  Deliver usually means you're taking it to him, for most of us.

 

I ship with static bags and original box, or bubble wrap if I don't have the box.   Local Craigslist doesn't have anything?

I live outside the US, and we don't use craiglist. I'm using a shipping company to deliver to the buyer. Looks like bubble wrap is the best bet now.

 

If I still cannot find bubble wrap anywhere and be forced to just put the board in the box, how risky is it?

 

I have some trash bags in my room, but I also don't know if they are safe.

Basically you want the board to be secure, protected against the jostling and bumps and drops it will most certainly get subjected to.

 

Any padding works.  Just make it so it's not moving around and nothing could cause anything on the board to take damage.

You could also message the seller and let them know that you thought ESD bags would be easier to get than they are. Ask them if they have a preferred way of wrapping inside the box.

I'm not actually trying to be as grumpy as it seems.

You should go to a delivery place and buy proper packing materials from them.

 

Send an item with an appropriate level of care that it deserves.

Is this good enough? I only have this piece of bubble wrap.
