If you are moving to another area or you are storing some of your possessions away, there are some basic things you should know. It’s a good idea to learn how to pack the various types of items you have properly, so that you avoid any form of damage to them.
We want to show you the packaging materials you should use to help keep your fragile items, whether large or small, intact. Here they are:
Inflatable products: A great way to cushion an item inside a box or container, from the impact it might sustain from the outside of the container is to surround the item with air filled cushions. They let the items bounce on them just a bit, to stop them from even bouncing around inside the box itself. They are actually a bit more on the expensive side as compared to other packaging materials, but they are also much safer too.
Packing peanuts: These are small pieces of foam that are pretty much shaped like peanuts. They work to fill the voids in the packing boxes or containers. So in essences, the cushion the items and help to absorb shock too. They are relatively cheap and they can be used for many different purposes and many different items.
Styrofoam shapes: These Styrofoam packaging materials are great for cushioning items which fit into awkward places or for items that have odd shapes. You can accompany this packaging material with another one to get the best effect for keeping your fragile items safe.
Bubbly wrap: Small fragile items can be wrapped in this material, because it provides a very versatile air cushioning factor. You need to handle it gently as well too, because you don’t want the bubbles on the sheet to pop, since they are what provide the cushioning.
