Suitable Storage for Christmas Decorations

OK so it might not actually be twelfth night yet which is traditionally the time to take down the Christmas decorations but as most people put their Christmas trees and other decorations up very early these days, most are gone by New Year’s day.  So where are you planning on storing your Christmas decorations until next year? In a slightly ripped cardboard box in the attic where they will gather dust? In a bin bag shoved into the corner of the garage? Well might we recommend something a little safer and more protective…put your Christmas decorations into a reusable plastic crate which are available to either rent or buy from us here at EasyCrate.
We offer a range of different plastic crates so you’re sure to find one that’s the right size for all your ornaments, baubles and other bits and pieces. We can even provide packing materials such as bubble wrap too should you need it and not to mention labels which will help you keep everything organised to make your life easier next Christmas.

To book your crate hire, you can use our online ordering system. Alternatively contact us for a quote.

If it’s raining on your Christmas parade, plastic crate hire may be just the trick.

At Easycrate we’ve spent the past year telling you about what benefits our crates can give you when moving or storing items. From their green credentials to speediness when packing there are numerous reasons why hiring crates is a good move, but looking through our blogs from the previous year there seems to be one benefit that trumps all others in both practicality and relevance to the years events, their ability to cope with moisture. 
We are fast approaching the end of 2012, the town lights are going up, the heating is going on and offices across the country are gearing up for Christmas. However it is not all cheer as the country is suffering from the continued effects of what has been a truly miserable year, where the wet weather has seemingly never seised. 
Whether moving office, moving home, or simply storing items to make room for Christmas, the wet weather can cause havoc on cardboard boxes. Even the slightest moisture can cause the box to lose its integrity, making them hard to carry and often causing them to break with the weight of items inside. When storing, even for a short time, damp and mould often begins to affect the items inside 
In wet weather like this plastic crates are in their element. The durable reinforced plastic design ensures that no matter how wet the crate gets, it does not lose its integrity, meaning that even after becoming wet, the crates can be stacked on top of one another, fully laden, without failing and crushing the items inside. The waterproof design of the crates also means that even when wet, your items are far better protected against damp and mould than if stored in a cardboard box. 
If you would like any further information about our plastic crate hire please feel free to contact us and a member of the team will be happy to help.
