It’s a wrap – choosing the right packaging materials

When you are packing boxes, ensuring you have adequately protected delicate and breakable items in very important.

While it’s tempting to wrap everything in newspaper, consider using some more specialised materials to ensure your goods arrive intact.

Bubble Wrap

Use bubble wrap for delicate items that are irregularly shaped. Some glass wear and crystal items should be bubble wrapped if it is particularly fragile. Ornaments and smaller electrical/electronic devices should also be bubble wrapped to reduce any possibility of damage.


Packing paper

Packing paper is excellent for crockery and some glass wear that stacks or nests. The paper is to protect the items from rubbing together, not to provide any impact protection.


Foam packing beads or peanuts

Very delicate items should be placed into boxes or cartons and surrounded by foam packing beads. This provides a very high level of impact protection during transport.
