Uses of Additional Packing Materials
In addition to packaging paper, we have a variety of other protective materials ideal for the packing and transport of your household goods.
Bubble wrap, the use of bubble wrap is best set aside for the protection of large and delicate items, such as mirrors and pictures to start off with. The best way to have your mirrors and pictures protected in transit is to ensure they are sufficiently wrapped with Bubble wrap. We recommend measuring out twice the length of bubble wrap to what you are protecting.
If you are wrapping a 1 metre picture, ensure you have 2 metres of bubble wrap, fold the bubble wrap over so the bubbled side is on the inside of the sheets, then fold this around the front side of the pictures, this will ensure the most fragile part of the pictures is protected from knocks and bumps whilst in transit.
Once the picture or mirror is wrapped ensure the bubble wrap is taped around it to keep it secure. Once the removals team arrive to load your pictures and mirrors they will ensure these are either tied off to the side of the removals truck or laid flat and secure in transit to ensure nothing falls onto the goods.
Another good use of bubble wrap is to cover and surround large fragile ornaments and statues, this is achieved by lining a medium box with scrunched packaging paper to provided and padded surface to rest your fragile goods on. Once you have started wrapping the goods in bubble wrap, ensure that any narrower sections of the goods are taped in place to ensure the wrap does not loosen in transit. position roughly 3-4 objects in the medium box that require the bubble wrap to ensure the box is not over weighed. This will ensure that the goods do not move around and damage each other whilst in the box.
