Why Good Packing Is So Important

Even the slightest movement during transit can cause damage – scrapes, scratches, and chips. You can prevent movement and damage by packing efficiently. For this, you will need the best-quality moving supplies.

Packing supplies are designed for 3 different purposes.

  • Surface protection
    To protect the surface of your valuables from damage caused by rubbing against other objects. Packing paper, bubble wraps, foam sheets, and furniture wraps are all very useful for this.

  • Cushioning
    This places a protective layer around the object to prevent any jostling or movement that can break the item. It is usually gravity and the valuable’s weight that causes the damage and not another object.

  • Void fill
    Even the best surface protection and cushioning may not help if there is a lot of empty space inside the packing boxes. You must pack for density. Pack the boxes as tightly as possible. Fill up empty spaces with paper towels, clothing, towels, pillows, anything you can find.
