When the time comes for you to pack things into suitable containers, whether that is for storage, moving home or sending a parcel, then you need to make sure that you pack everything as securely as possible. Some items such as books and clothes are clearly not going to break so don’t need to have any extra protection or cushioning. However, for those items that are liable to break, you have got to make sure that you pack them properly and give them the required level of protection. To do this you should use a variety of packaging products and bubble wrap is one of the main ones.
If you choose not to give the items you are packing the protection they need then there is every chance that you are going to end up with breakages occurring. This is bad enough if you are putting your own items into storage or are moving house, if the items are for someone else then it makes the situation even worse. When sending a gift to a loved one, the last thing you want is for them to open up their present to find it in pieces. Likewise if you have sold something on eBay and you are sending it out to the buyer, you are going to have to either issue a refund or supply them with a replacement if the item is broken on its way to them.
It will only take you a matter of seconds to make sure that everything is cushioned properly and it doesn’t exactly cost much to purchase the wrapping. There are plenty of online stores where you can buy cheap bubble wrap and get it delivered to you usually at no extra cost. All you then have to do is make sure that you pack any fragile items correctly, by wrapping them up with a layer or two of bubbles. Using a bit of common sense will also help, don’t put heavy items into a box with something that is likely to be broken and don’t over pack things so that they are all crammed in together.
By spending that little bit of extra time and thought on packing the things you are either moving or delivering you will reduce the chances of anything breaking. This is definitely a much better option than either you or someone you have sent something to opening up the box and finding that what is inside has been damaged.
