Broken or damaged Christmas decorations? This is what you should have done instead!

You are unpacking the Christmas decorations for your home or your business and many of you will find yourself in the unfortunate position of finding those Christmas decorations (whether they have come out of loft, storage cupboard or garage) not looking quite the way you packed them up in January earlier in the year. It really can dampen those Christmas spirits and worse still there is the extra cost of replacing the decorations which needs to be factored in.

Whether you used bubble wrap or the original boxes that you brought them in - many of us find ourselves unpacking decorations that are a little damp and split due to damaged boxes and the contents are either faded, damaged or broken.

For the business owner
When you are running a small business, it is important to keep your costs low and avoid paying for things unnecessarily and repeatedly like Christmas decorations – so it is important to store them safely and securely.

For the parent
Over the years you have collected handmade decorations made by your little ones, ensuring they have pride of place inyour home. If these are damaged – they aren’t replaceable, and it is heart-breaking for both the parent and the child.

For the collector
Many of you may scour stores high and low to find that perfect piece to add to your collection of beautiful decorations that have been handmade or have been handed down through the generations. Keeping these safe when not being used for the large part of the year is crucial so they can be nurtured for years to come.

For many of us – business and homeowner’s, budgets are tight and we don’t have the luxury to replace things unnecessarily, so whilst the idea of storing your Christmas Decorations in a self-storage facility may seem extravagant – it could save you so much in replacements decorations and therefore be cost effective.
