Christmas Storage Solutions (Residential & Business)
Christmas decorations don’t come cheap which is why most households have boxes upon boxes of decorations, Christmas ornaments including snow globes, indoor tree lights, outdoor lights and even festive garden statues such as Santa Clause and Reindeers. All of these take up storage space in the loft, garage, shed, shelves in cupboards, above the wardrobe and any other free space that can accommodate the seasonal items you won’t need for the rest of the year.
Storage for Homeowners to Keep Christmas Items All Year-Round
Homeowners can find themselves inundated with Christmas items that take up space throughout the year with no practical purpose for most of their items until the Christmas Period. For most people if you were to list everything you tend to bring out just to get the house ready for Christmas, it could be endless.
There’s the obvious Christmas tree and decorations, your interior lights and decorations and the festive decor for the exterior which can include large festive statues and other garden ornaments like reindeers that get put into the garage and take up storage space for the rest of the year.
Christmas decor goes beyond the decorations though because there’s also the table linen reserved for special events like family dinners and the best quality glassware and dinner sets that is brought out to accompany the Christmas dinner table when you know guests are coming around for the special occasion.
By having dedicated storage for all your Christmas decor and items you only use for special occasions, you’re likely to find a significant amount of extra space around your home, loft, shed, garage, cupboards and your shelves will be freed up to store more practical items you will use year-round.
Our Self-storage Containers are ideal for homeowners with a vast collection of decorative and expensive items that are only used occasionally.
These can include crystal glassware, china dinner sets, high quality table linen, table runners, festive dining chairs and cushions, decorations, glass jars of baubles (packed with loose foam for protection) and the largest artificial Christmas trees you’d struggle to find storage for anywhere else other than taking space up in a garage.
Don’t let Christmas decorations and other items take up space unnecessarily. With Top Box Self Storage Containers Edinburgh, you can put your items into safe and fit-for-purpose storage while still being able to access your items anytime. Our anytime access makes it suitable for storing your best dinnerware that’s only used for special occasions, you can simply pop in when you need to and put your items back into safe and secure storage after your event.
For those who entertain in the summer months using barbeques or perhaps have a summer garden marquee, our containers are 160sqft in size which is more than enough space to accommodate a lot of larger seasonal Christmas and Summer items thus allowing you to free up even more space around your home and garden.
For homes with a garage that’s been overtaken by boxes and unable to keep a car in, an outdoor Storage Container at Top Box Self Storage will let you restore your garage to its intended purpose, drive the family car into it and free up your drive to accommodate guest parking. A garage clear out for Christmas is ideal for those expecting family to be driving up to spend a weekend or even a week or two over the holidays.

Christmas Storage Solutions for Business and Event Management Companies
For businesses, the cost of storage isn’t just about convenience. It’s about re-using props for years to come, instead of investing a significant portion of the annual revenue towards festive themes and events to meet customer expectations over the Christmas Period.
Businesses often try to save on the festive expenses by outsourcing their themed events to an events management company who have all the props on hand to put on the best Festive Party or Santa’s Grotto experience in town.
Businesses who run this operating model understand the storage needs of their business throughout the year, knowing their props are only going to be paid for in November and December. For the rest of the year, Christmas items need to be stored safe & secure and protected from the elements so they’re ready for hire the following year.
Christmas is an expensive time of year for everyone but more so for businesses needing to invest a significant amount of time and money into designing Christmas displays and arranging for events. Such events as a Santa’s Grotto for a retail store/shopping mall or traders needing a standout presence at the festive Christmas markets.
Event Management Companies can use outdoor Storage Containers to store marquees and chalet style hospitality tents for use at Christmas markets and temporary party venues including all the interior decor accessories needed to create an extravagant venue experience for Christmas or Hogmanay. The props that some businesses need to store away year-round can take up a significant amount of storage space that could be put to better use.
Examples of Christmas Props include:
A Santa’s sleigh, reindeer props, Christmas trees, lights, snowmen, jumbo-sized candy canes, market stalls to sell items at your event, Santa statues, perhaps even the mailbox sorter prop and for any Santa’s Grotto themed event, there’s the obvious need for a throne for Santa to sit on.
The vast majority of Businesses and Event Management Companies won’t have the Storage Space to accommodate for all the props that they use and may require safe & secure, low-cost storage with the flexibility of 24/7 Access. Top Self Storage provides exactly that.
Any type of Business can benefit from renting an outdoor Storage Container to store away seasonal items, saving the expense of restocking or hiring the following Christmas season.
An added advantage for business owners in the retail space is that any spare Container Storage space that isn’t used by props for mannequins and marquees can be utilised and used to store surplus seasonal stock such as; festive clothes (light-up Christmas jumpers), unsold Christmas crackers, Christmas cards, wrapping paper, seasonal gift bags, Santa hats, reindeer headbands and all the other fun Christmas items that won’t sell after the 25th of December. Simply box them up and store them away for use at a later stage.
By putting surplus stock into Storage, it saves the expense of restocking next year as all your stock is on hand and will eventually sell.
Whether you sell seasonal Christmas items from a retail store or you sell online through platforms like Amazon and eBay, you could find there’s significant stock savings by storing unsold stock until next season. You could also take advantage of restocking from discount sales which businesses do to get rid of large batches of Christmas stock that they don’t have the storage space for.
Whether you’re in retail, events management or your business has a range of seasonal items that’s only used over the Christmas period, our Self-Storage Containers can be useful throughout the year, and possibly give your business a competitive advantage.
