Why Choosing the Right Packing & Shipping Supplies Make a Difference

How many of you have been on the receiving end of a product that was damaged or broken when you received it? It’s equally as frustrating to open a box after you’ve spent time packing it only to see broken items when you open the box lid. After all is said and done, the question that needs to be answered is how could this have happened if you used the proper packing and shipping supplies. Honestly, you didn’t use the best products on the market and this is where this article is going to help.

Let’s start by taking a moment to talk about bubble, packing paper and foam and its uses. Bubble may look the same to many, but in fact, provides different types of protection based on the size of the air bubble. The larger the bubble, the softer the impact is on the item you’re protecting. Most bubble product come in rolls with convenient perforated sheets for easy handling as well as pouches that slide easily over electronics, mirrors, frames and more. Bubble is a great product to use on glasses products, decorative pieces like décor, vases, mirrors and frames.

Packing paper is a versatile product that can be used between breakables, though its main purpose is a filler. That’s right, a filler! Packing paper isn’t as thick as bubble, but can be used in conjunction with bubble or foam. How you ask? Paper is great for crumpling up to fill open spaces that may easily shift during transit. This product can also be used between plates and other things that stack to prevent rubbing and scratches.

Lastly, foam sheets are a versatile product that can be used to wrap breakable items or used between breakables as well. Foam can also be used in the voids inside of glasses and other items and can also be used on electronics, toys, mirrors, frames and more to prevent scratches, dings and other marks.

To ensure that you’re items arrive safely, make sure that you are using the right packing and shipping supplies from a trusted moving supply company. A reputable company will be able to answer your packaging questions and provide you with advise on the best products to use in your moving or shipping process.
