April 25, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 126

Packing materials are actually more important than anything else. You need suitable materials to pack and store your items and you want to know that they're secured and will not fall apart anytime. Do not get any normal material such as the carton box from the new TV set or plastic bags from the supermarket. Get a good quality one so that they're protected from elements such as dust and dirt.

Mattress Cover Mattress covers are made of transparent polyethylene which are durable and have the ability to repel dust and provide reasonable protection. The transparent covers also allow fast access to your items when the need arises.

Paper Blankets Paper blankets are usually made of 5 ply materials and when wrapped around household items such as tables and chairs are able to protect from knocks and scratches while in storage.

Bubble Wrap Bubble wraps are a must have material and they are extremely versatile and provides protection and cushioning for everything that is fragile. Bubble wraps protect from scratches and scraps and are also extremely cheap if you get in bulk.

Shrink Wrap Shrink wrap provides a skin tight protection that is not only cost effective but also easy to use. Items that are shrink wrapped are protected from elements such as rain, sun and even dust.

Adhesive Tape Adhesive tapes are must have items to tape and hold down your items and taping boxes, bubble wraps and covers.

Gaffer Tapes Gaffer tapes are extremely strong and sticky and are used in situations where normal adhesive tapes are not strong enough to secure and tape down the boxes. Gaffer tapes can also be used to tape down electrical wires to prevent tripping and falling.

Archive Boxes Archive boxes are bigger and sturdier boxes as compared to the regular carton boxes that can be used to store items more securely.

Cardboard Boxes Cardboard boxes are the basics of storage and are commonly used everywhere for storage. They offer basic protection and simple storage and can be often gotten for free at the supermarket or electronic stores. They also come in different sizes that can be used to store different items.

Void Fill Void fills fill up the excess space in the box and prevent the items inside from moving due to space available. They are cheap and very useful when storage items.

Newspaper Newspaper is cheap and abundant and sometimes is the thing to protect your fragile items such as china vase and glass. Newspaper is often used in conjunction with bubble wrap to offer a more secured protection. Wrap the newspaper around the fragile item and it will prevent scratches.
