Storing Presents For Christmas

With December 25th nearly a month away, our televisions are currently being filled with festive adverts: from the must –have toys to supermarkets tempting you with their delicious Christmas dinners. Many shops are also running promotions, keen to encourage you to buy your Christmas gifts from them.

When it comes to Christmas, finding the perfect presents are not the only challenge, it can also be tricky to work out where to store the presents in the run up to Christmas. Where can they be kept to avoid being damaged? Where can they be kept away from prying eyes?

At Easycrate we have the perfect solution: why not hire a Christmas crate to
store your gifts in? Our hardwearing plastic storage crates come in a range of sizes to suit your gift storing needs and each crate comes with an interlocking lid, meaning the crates are stackable and space saving. Our crates can also be sealed to keep your presents safe and a surprise for Christmas Day!

The Easycrate team can deliver your Christmas crates and collect from you once they are no longer required. Our flexible rental periods and unbeatable prices mean that we are the number one choice for all your Christmas storage needs.

If you are looking for Christmas storage, contact a member of our team on 0800 027 2665 or via our Online Contact Form and we will be happy to help you.

Christmas Office Relocations & Refurbishments

With the television channels littered with festive adverts and shopping centres beginning to be filled with the familiar tune of “..It’s the most wonderful time of the year...” it can only mean one thing – Christmas is almost here!

While the impending festive period often means festive coffee drinks and mad last minute dashes to the shops on Christmas Eve, it can also provide businesses with an ideal opportunity: a chance to move offices or give their current office space some TLC.

Why Move Office Over Christmas?

Although Christmas is renowned for generally being a busy time, for businesses it can be the perfect time to move. Relocating over the quieter period of the Christmas holidays enables companies to get the job done while their business is less busy. 

Moving later in the year when it may be harder to have some business “down time” may be tricky, less feasible and a likely factor in stalling a move altogether.

Why Refurbish Over Christmas?

If relocating your company isn’t an option, why not consider refurbishing your office ready for a fresh start in 2015?

A quick audit around your current workspace should give you an idea of what works and what needs improving.

  • Is your decor looking tired and dated?
  • Would your company benefit from a new colour scheme or rebranding?
  • Could your layout be improved?
  • Does new furniture need to be purchased to improve the layout?

It is always worth discussing with your work team about how they feel about their current working environment. Chances are they will have some fantastic improvement ideas (and potentially some contacts that could help out with repainting etc) and by asking for their opinions, they will feel even more valued.

If you are planning a Christmas move or refurbishment, why not contact the Easycrate team and find out how our crate hire services are ideal for office relocation and refurbishment projects.
