Will my stuff get damp in a self-store container?

I’m following up on the recent questions about damp because we’ve had another question from a customer this week. They wanted to know if their stuff would get damp inside a container.

You may have heard that self-store containers are susceptible to condensation and damp, but it’s not true! As long as nothing that’s already damp goes into your container, nothing damp will come out.

Damp clothes, as well as garden furniture and washing machines, are the most common culprits whenever there is a problem. So just make sure you double check everything before you store in your container.
