5 Best Ways To Ship Appliances Carefully

Whether you are a manufacturer of electronic appliances or planning to move your home, you must be well aware of the importance of shipping the items carefully. One small mistake in the packaging process can hamper the electronic devices and lead to dents or chips. Severe damage may even end up costing you a lot of money. While damages are common, you can prevent them by choosing suitable packaging and shipping methods to ensure the appliances are shipped carefully.

Do you have to ship appliances over a long distance? Are you worried about the safety of the appliances during the shipment process? Read on to find out the best ways to ship the devices meticulously to prevent damages.      

What are the best ways to ship appliances carefully?

With the changing times, the methods of shipping products have also undergone a drastic change. People are using innovative ways to pack electronic appliances to help protect appliances. However, many appliances have their carton damaged during the shipment process. There are plenty of protective materials available today that can help you pack the devices properly and ship them. Here are five such methods that you can choose from:

1.       Use loosefill:

While there are plenty of packaging materials that enable you to ship products properly, one of the most popular ones is loosefill. They are a foam-based product but fall into a whole new category of materials. Also known as packaging peanuts or foam peanuts, you can add them to shipment boxes or containers to fill up space and provide cushioning. They get the unique name from the fact that they resemble peanuts within the shells but are identical to shelled peanuts in terms of size.

Key attributes:

  • Used in cardboard boxes
  • Serve as filler to protect delicate products
  • Offer a cushioning effect

2.       Opt for padded dividers:

If you have to transport multiple appliances that are small in size, then padded dividers might be the ideal solution for you. As the name suggests, these dividers have thick padding that can offer complete protection to the electronics from impact. You can set the padded dividers into a large box to create small compartments and then place the fragile items in between. This method of shipping is more suitable for electronic products as well as household wares. Given the three-dimensional structure that it offers, both organization and delivery of products become a simple process, which was otherwise challenging.

Key attributes:

  • Ideal for sending a collection of products
  • Used to ship two incompatible gadgets together

3.       Make use of bubble wrap:

One packaging solution that almost every person has used or received products in is bubble wrap. Not only that, but it is also the most widely-known and easily recognized way of packing worldwide. A bubble wrap is a sheet of plastic that contains tiny bubbles filled with air that can be used to cover delicate products. The bubbles act as a layer of protection against plenty of threats and shocks, keeping the appliances safe and intact. Bubble wrap is used in covering a majority of appliances ranging from microwaves to air-conditioners and even refrigerators because of their convenience and benefits. 

 Key attributes:

  • Ideal for products of all sizes
  • Available in the form of rolls, wrap bags
  • Can work as both packaging and protection
  • Sturdy as bubble don’t burst easily

4.       Packaging foam to the rescue:

Packaging foam is one of the largest categories of materials used to pack products before shipping them. It encompasses a wide range of products that enables them to suit your specific needs. There are numerous forms of packaging foam – foam rolls, sheets, egg crates, and even sponge rolls. You can also cut them into different shapes to take the ideal form that can be ideal for the particular appliance you are shipping.

Packing foam is much denser and more extensive when compared to loosefill or packaging peanuts. By using packaging foam, you can easily protect the goods from damage during accidents. However, it can make the packaging a little heavy. 

Key attributes:

  • It doesn’t have a definite shape
  • Available in different forms
  • Protectiveness is measured through firmness
  • Easily customizable

Another way to ensure the safety of appliances during shipment is by using packaging shavings. They can be shavings of paper, plastic, and even cardboard and are available in varying sizes and thickness levels. It is ideally used as fillers for delicate items that are shipped in groups. Much like loosefill, packaging shavings come in handy to fill a shipping box or cardboard crate to fill in the gaps and cover the appliances. It minimizes the chances of damage during transit and ensures the products are delivered in proper condition.

Key attributes:

  • Offer a cushioning effect
  • Cost-effective
  • Prevents movement of goods
