Christmas & Decoration Storage
Christmas really is the most wonderful time of year, but it sure does take up storage room around the house. Awkward shaped items, festive lights, tree stands, artificial trees, wrapping paper, wreaths and more all take up precious space, especially when these items are only used for around one month of the year. If you are finding yourself cramped by Christmas, why not enquire about an affordable self storage unit?
Christmas Decoration Storage Tips
If like most people in the UK, you have an array of festive decorations and Christmas related items that need somewhere safe to live for the other 11 months of the year, a self-storage unit is sensible option. When decluttering the house and packing up the decorations in January, it is worthwhile following our tips to make sure that next time you come to decorate the house you can find everything with ease and store the items in the knowledge they are safe from damage.
- Dismantle the tree and put it back in the box securely and tape the box back up so that no branches fall out or get damaged in storage.
- Pack carefully to maximise storage space and prevent any breakages of fragile decorations. Bubble wrap or dividers in a box will help keep tree decorations safe and sound.
- Avoid adding heavy items or lights to storage boxes where fragile items are being stored.
- Label the boxes so that you can easily identify your festive storage from any other items you might keep in your storage unit.
Perfect for Presents
A self storage unit is the perfect place to store presents, not only for Christmas but birthdays and other celebrations, especially when the goodies are for the kids! Keeping Christmas presents safe until Santa delivers them can be a real challenge especially if you are tight for storage space. Luckily, at Pink Hippo you will be able to have your very own grotto for storing and wrapping if you so wish. We even have storage facilities for any festive drinks including wine!
Bigger items such as bikes or large toys can easily be kept safe until Christmas, and will remove the risk of theft of expensive items kept in a shed or garage space. Our storage facilities in Reading and Leatherhead are monitored by 24 hour CCTV, alarm systems and our receptions are staffed during opening hours.
Having access to a manned reception is also great news, as our reception can take deliveries on your behalf. This is a particularly useful service for those who work long hours and don’t want to miss courier deliveries. We will set aside your items safely ready for you to collect.
