When To Use Packing Peanuts for Moving?
Packing peanuts are made of foam, and most people are familiar with them in terms of shipping items. However, foam peanuts can also be used effectively in many situations for moving and storing.
1. Filling gaps is an easy use for this item, particularly when there are fragile items inside. Boxes are strongest when they are completely filled and therefore you don't want gaps between the items inside and the box.
2. Providing a cushion of support for heavy items like electronics is another ideal use for this item such as packing TVs. After you wrap the tv with paper and then bubble, you can put packing peanuts on the bottom of the bottom and lay the television inside. Then fill the rest of the box with peanuts.
3. Light items don't' require packing peanuts and usually, the cushion on the bottom is fine being done with crumpled paper.
TIP: You can keep one big box in your garage and save packing peanuts. You can use them when shipping Christmas items to your friends and family.
