  • and your bottle is ready to transport

This is the perfect solution to carry everything from kitchen ingredients to bathroom products such as liquid wash.

Secures packing material around an item

Padding and packing materials are important to protect your household items from getting scratched during the move.

However to keep these supplies in place and secure, use plastic wrap.

For instance, after covering your furniture items with a moving blanket or bubble wrap, wrap them with a thick layer of plastic wrap to hold wrappings in place.

Protects your items against dirt & dust

The plastic wrap provides an extra layer of protection to your items against dust, dirt and moisture.

Before wrapping your items with plastic wrap, completely clean and dry your items.

If moisture gets trapped underneath the plastic wrap, it can result in mould growth on the items.

Packing plastic wrap can help you organise and hold items together during the move.

You can use it to:

  • wrap power cords, chargers and wires
  • stack smaller moving boxes together
  • pack electronic parts together
  • stack and secure silverware, office materials, etc.
  • bundle up bed rails, curtain rods, mops, and other odd-shaped items
  • keep lightweight items like pillows and soft toys together
  • keep rugs, mats, and carpets tightly rolled

In the end…

Above all, plastic wrap ensures the safety of your stuff and offers you peace of mind when moving house.
