Packaging Supply Must-Haves

If you’re looking to move your business supplies, it’s best to know which packaging accessories are essential for getting the job done properly. Here are some of the essential packaging supplies you’ll need.

Bubble Wrap

Bubble wrap can be wrapped around various objects to provide protection. It can be ordered in a range of sizes, from small bubbles to industrial-size large bubbles. The smaller bubble wraps are ideal for wrapping delicate, easily breakable items such as mugs and collectible statues. Small bubble wrapping is also a good choice for dining kitchenware such as glasses, bowls and plates, as the extra cushioning can prevent those objects from breaking during transport. You should remember to wrap objects with the bubbles facing the objects being wrapped, as this ensures that they’re better protected.

Packing Paper

Packing paper is a great packing material for delicate objects that you don’t want to getbroken, scratched or smudged. Like bubble wrap, it works well when it comes to packaging kitchen glasses, plates and other items that can be broken with relative ease. It’s also ideal for objects that need to be carefully and meticulously wrapped, such as tables with wood finishes, fine china, artwork and other precious objects.

Plastic Containers

When it comes to plastic containers, it’s important to carefully consider what you place into each container. You want to maximise each container’s capacity while also keeping the containers light enough so that you can handle lifting and moving them yourself. Heavy items such as books, office equipment and office supplies can easily fit into smaller plastic containers. Avoid empty spaces in your containers by using packing paper, newspaper and other packaging accessories to pack the containers until they’re full. This will prevent contents from shifting during your move.

Padded Wrapping Paper

Padded wrapping paper is an effective choice for wrapping and packing up furniture, allowing you to prevent scratches, nicks and dents. It works best for hard furniture, such as office tables, office desks and filing cabinets.

Stretch Plastic Wrap

Stretch plastic wrap is similar to cling wrap but has greater strength. It comes in a variety of widths and is a perfect choice for wrapping dresser and cabinet drawers so that they don’t fly open during the move. Stretch plastic wrap can also cover and secure softer pieces of furniture such as office chairs and couches.

Heavy-Duty Packaging Tape

When considering tapepackaging accessories, you don’t want to use duct tape. You’ll want clear packaging tape that’s very sticky. The best method for taping down any boxes or containers that you use is to tape the middle down and to put a few tape stripes along the sides of the box/container for added protection. Tape guns can make the taping process much more efficient and effortless.

Markers

If using boxes for your packing, invest in the biggest size markers for labelling. Doing so will ensure that you and everyone else can clearly read the labels of each box. It’s important that you can clearly see labels like “fragile” for boxes that must be handled with care.
