Shipping your products is a large part of running a successful business. We know that business owners have a lot of tasks to juggle, and to help make it easy we have broken down the packing supplies you need for shipping your products into 5 essential things. Take the stress out of shipping your products safely, and help maintain a positive brand reputation with quality packaging materials and shipping products. Read on for the 5 supplies you need to ship your products, and our reasons why they are crucial for your business.
Packing Supplies You Need and Why
No matter if you’re a new business owner looking for some guidance, or an experienced business owner expanding into the world of online shopping and shipping, the products you need are the same. Good shipping doesn’t have to be fancy; the most important thing you can do is purchase quality products that will protect your items as they travel across Australia and around the world. Our top 5 items to make your shipping process easy and effective are as below:
1. Bubble Wrap
Bubble wrap is absolutely key for all businesses who want to ship their items. Not only can it be cut perfectly to shape, bubble wrap can be rolled and scrunched to fill empty spaces around uniquely shaped items. It’s also a lot of fun for your customers – who doesn’t love to pop bubble wrap bubbles!
2. Packaging Tape
You’ll need to keep your boxes from falling open during transit, and quality packaging tape is the best way to do this. Prevent the bottom of your boxes falling open, or the top being torn, with clear premium rubber tape. Flimsy tape could cost you if they result in damaged products and unsatisfied customers. Jetbox’s premium tape is also environmentally friendly and super strong – nothing less than your business needs.
3. Fragile Tape
Are your items fragile and require extra care? Let everyone who handles your product know with fragile tape! From your local postie to the international shippers, fragile tape is an obvious and clear way to indicate your products are fragile and to take extra precautions where possible.
Bio-fill is a wonderful, biodegradable, 100% natural packing loose fill. Useful for filling your shipping boxes, surrounding items and ensuring fragile items are protected. If you’re looking for a clean and safe solution or an alternative to bubble wrap, bio-fill is an ideal option. Bio-fill can also be used alongside bubble wrap to fill spaces before wrapping the item in bubble wrap or to protect an item already wrapped up.
5. The Right Sized Box
An essential in shipping your products is the perfect sized box. Not only that, but a durable, strong box made to custom fit your item. Using boxes that perfectly fit your items has many benefits, including saving you money on shipping and on packaging fillers, providing the best protection and helping you reduce your packaging product usage therefore benefiting the environment!
