Can I store my stuff for car boot sales?

As the weather gets nicer, the idea of wandering around car boot sales becomes more attractive.  Many people have regular stalls as it’s a great way of earning some money.

Car boots sales offer a great way to recycle your things and earn a bit of cash at the same time.  In some cases, sellers buy online and from vintage and charity shops to sell on to make a profit.

If you’ve considered selling at car boot sales, you may want to consider how you will store your items, especially if you are buying in bulk, in order to sell on your stall.

Self-storage is a popular and affordable solution for anyone who buys and sells products and needs somewhere safe, secure, dry, and easily accessible to keep their stock.

Apart from a few prohibited items (you can find a list of them here; What isn’t allowed in a self-storage container? – The Space Program), there aren’t many restrictions on the type of goods you’re allowed to store in a container.  This is one reason why a real mix of traders are using them every day to run successful businesses.  Among them are;

Market traders
eBay traders
Amazon sellers
Car boot professionals
Furniture showrooms
Antique dealers
Clothing retailers
