Why is bubble wrap good for packing?
Bubble wrap is an essential product when packing items to move home – it will protect your items from bashes and knocks and prevent them from being damaged in transit. It can be used on all household items, from fragile kitchenware and mirrors to TV’s and hi-fi speakers.
How much bubble wrap will I need?
The one thing about bubble wrap is there’s never enough when you need it most.
If you have just one item to wrap for moving, we recommend getting a smaller roll or a couple of smaller rolls. It’s good for small mirrors and other fragile items which you can then pack into small boxes.
If you have many items or large items that you want to protect, like a TV or large mirror, we recommend getting a larger roll giving you 100 metres of bubble wrap. It might sound like a lot, but even when moving from a 2 bedroom home that amount will be used up quickly.
How should I cut bubble wrap?
You can cut bubble wrap with scissors, but the quickest and most effective way is to lay out an old box and cut the bubble wrap using a craft knife. It’s a good idea to cut a number of strips at once so you have them ready to use. Be sure to keep your hands away from the blade while cutting.
