What Items To Pack In Bubble Wrap When Moving Apartments In Atlantic City

Jul 25, 2023

Bubble wrap is one of mankind’s greatest inventions – hours of mindless fun! Great for packing, too, of course.

A few months ago my friend called me up to help him move. He said I should bring bubble wrap, and I did. When I asked him where he wanted it, he told me: "Just pop it in the corner."

By the time I finished, all the stuff was already packed and loaded onto a truck.

...I'll pause for laughs.

Seriously though, imagine the level of self-control needed to work in a bubble wrap factory... Not all heroes wear capes!

But aside from being so irresistibly pop-ilicious, bubble wrap is super useful, especially when you're moving. All you need is to muster enough self-control to get through the packing process!

Luckily, we're in the internet-knows-everything era and, of course, there's a guide that tells you exactly how to wrap your fragile items - check out the Top Items to Pack with Bubble Wrap.

✔️ Packing 101

If you're moving for the first time and you're doing it mostly DIY, you probably have no idea what you're doing. How do you pack the china? Where do you put the TV? What do you use for fragile items? Do you need packing paper and bubble wrap, or is one enough?

So many questions.

The good news is, the experts have all the answers. To make a long story short: You pack china with bubble wrap and packing paper; you put the TV in bubble wrap and the original box (if you don't have it a sturdy moving carton will do); bubble wrap is a must-have for fragile items; you need both bubble wrap and packing paper.

✔️ Fragile Items - What are They?

Is TV considered fragile? Yes. It may not look as fragile as your wedding china - but it can just as easily be damaged in transport. Anything that's easily damaged is considered fragile; this includes wine glasses, china, glass tabletop, glass cabinet doors and shelves, mirrors, artwork, vases, and electronics.

To ensure these items make it from point A to point B unscathed, it's best to cocoon them in bubble wrap.

For example, if you're packing a flat-screen TV, you should use pink, non-static bubble wrap and then, as I said, either put it in the original box or in a sturdy moving carton.

For your fancy (or non-fancy) china, you should use both packing paper and bubble wrap to make sure it's protected from all sides. This means you should cushion the box and put some bubble wrap and packing paper inside your mugs and cups.

And don't forget to mark all your boxes containing fragile items - just write "Fragile" so the people handling the boxes know to take extra care.

✔️ Professional Movers Can Help

If you don't quite feel like doing all that on your own, or you just want someone to help you move the stuff, you can always hire professional movers. Thanks to Movers.com, it's never been easier to find reliable, licensed, and insured movers regardless of where you live or where you're moving to.
