Top Five Reasons Why You Need a Storage Container this Christmas

Mobile Mini Storage Container

‘Tis the season to be jolly – but that can sometimes get a little difficult if your workspace is crammed to the rafters with Christmas materials, products or seasonal excess. No matter what your business, here at Mobile Mini, we feel that there’s a need for a storage container at your workspace this Christmas – even if you don’t know it yet!

Why not take a look at our top five reasons why you might well find yourself needing a storage container this Christmas? You never know the situations that might inspire such a need…

For the small business owner…

5. Have you found your homes have been completely taken over with Christmas stock this season? Between Black Friday and Small Business Saturday, there must be a lot of items coming and going – a dedicated storage space is almost a must! Linked with other small business owners in your area? Why not collaborate and hire a container to share! If you’ve got the time to commit to renovation work, you could even create a pop-up shop ahead of the gift-buying season.

For the hotelier…

4. Christmas retailing and party season gets well underway by mid-December, and many will need somewhere to stay if where they opt to shop isn’t where they call home. As such, hotels can become very busy and often, there are just no rooms left at the inn. Hoteliers, eradicate this with a shipping container! Check out these inspiring renovations before adding it to your Christmas list. Don’t forget, you can always use a container for more conventional uses of storing excess furniture, equipment or other supplies that you might need in order to accommodate the most guests possible over the festive season.

For the Christmas tree seller…

3. Christmas trees are integral to British festivities – but what if the weather turns when you’re looking to sell them outdoors? A storage container could be the perfect solution for tree merchants when the weather takes an inevitable wintery turn – ideal for protecting those pines.

For the high street retailer…

2. Retailers – the crowds of Christmas shoppers can make your usual high street shops feel incredibly cramped, which could ultimately put off prospective customers. Why not take a leaf out of Adidas’ book and create a branded pop-up shop out of a storage container? We’ve already had a look at some of the products we’d love to see this done to. Could this form of quirky extra space work for you too? What’s more, you could always use a storage container as extra space to keep excess stock or next season’s goods away from the shop floor until the products are needed.

For the kids…

1. None of the above tickle your particular need? Well, everyone, everywhere could use a special grotto for Santa this Christmas! Though it might take some creative use of the space, we reckon there’s scope to build a rather lovely temporary home for Father Christmas in one of our containers. Perfect for schools, shopping centres and more!
