Shipping Container Hire: The Christmas Tree Retailer's Guide

Shipping Container Hire: The Christmas Tree Retailer's Guide

Yes we know it's only September, but the Roses and Quality Street tubs have started to appear and that can only mean one thing. The air is soon to be filled with the warm aroma of mulled wine, the merry jingles of carolers, and the timeless tradition of selecting the perfect Christmas tree. For those in the business of selling holiday cheer, this season marks the busiest and most magical time of the year.

However, with great festivities come great responsibilities, especially when it comes to the safe storage and display of Christmas trees. That's where ST Containers and Sussex Transport step in to make your holiday season retail venture smoother, more secure, and stress-free.

The Magic of Christmas Tree Retailing

For many, the annual quest for the ideal Christmas tree is a cherished tradition, one that often involves a visit to a local open yard or pop-up retail location. These festive plots become seasonal landmarks, bustling with customers eager to find the centerpiece of their holiday celebrations.

The Challenge of Christmas Tree Storage

However, as any seasoned Christmas tree retailer knows, the logistics of managing these outdoor businesses can be complex. Safely storing a stockpile of trees, wreaths, and decorations can be challenging, particularly when considering the unpredictability of winter weather. Ensuring the security of valuable inventory overnight is equally important. Plus you've got Christmas tree wrapping machines and other equipment (maybe even your chair).
