Top packaging supplies and why you need them
The staple of any home move, boxes are great for large and small items of all kinds. Cardboard boxes are usually sufficient for most moves. Our tough and robust cardboard boxes are built to cope with heavy loads, and can be strengthened with strapping or tape as required. For moving heavy duty equipment in offices or packing up your electrical items, plastic boxes might be more practical. They offer a little more durability for heavy loads.
- Bubble wrap
Moving something delicate or fragile? Bubble wrap is perfect for packing up anything that could be damaged during a move. Wrap items individually or place bubble wrap inside your boxes to keep your belongings safe and secure.
The humble roll of sticky tape is a mover’s best friend. It can be used to close up packed boxes and keep them fastened, preventing items being lost. It can also be used to wrap full, heavy boxes and ensure they don’t split or come open. You can attach items together for easier moving – for example, use tape to fasten your remote controls to your electrical items.
- Plastic strapping
Sometimes simple tape is not strong enough, and that is where these handy rolls of plastic strapping come in. You can cut them to the right length and fasten them with a cut and press tool, ensuring that heavy boxes are properly secured and valuable items have a tamper-proof seal.
- Covers and sheets
Moving large and bulky items can sometimes lead to damage. Prevent this using covers for furniture that cannot be dismantled. Covers can also help when moving pianos, protecting the instrument while it gets relocated. You can get covers sized to fit bikes and motorbikes, and even for cars that are being transported.
Once everything is packed up, how will you know where to find it again? Sticky labels can help you organise and manage all of your boxes and know exactly what has gone inside. When you get to your new premises, you can quickly spot the most important items and make sure everything is placed in the right room.
