Earthenware is the thing that's really likely to crack with changes of temperature.

I had a domestic porcelain mug the other day. Teabag in. Added boiling water. 5 seconds later there was a feint cracking noise and the bloody thing almost split in half. It must have had a small crack that the sudden and extreme change in temperature exacerbated.

Avoid extreme changes in temperature.

Stored loads in Bubble wrap in the Garage. Never had any problem.
What about access to the Loft? Its all too easy just breaking pottery getting them up there. Also there is the weight on the joists.

it should be noted that Cambridge has a far warmer climate than Northern UK so if you have really cold winters you would need to insulate either the shed of the packing boxes
