5 Easy, Helpful Tips to Help You Save Money and Time with Bubble Wrap

Bubble Wrap is a warehouse and packing area essential. This consummable might be big and bulky, but it doesn't have to be expensive or awkward to use if you know the rules! ABL can use our huge buying power and 25 years of industry experience to show you how to save both money and time with your bubble wrap.

ABL is one of SE QLD's largest suppliers of Bubble wrap. We stock a huge range of Australian Made, High Quality, Polycell Bubblewrap. Compare our pricing on our bubble wrap range, and remember that we never ever charge cubage or freight charges for bubble wrap for Gold Coast, Tweed or Brisbane deliveries.

The 5 simple rules compiled below mean that you can make your warehouse Bubble Wrap useage run cheaper, smarter and easier.

1. Slit your Bubble Wrap into Useable Widths (for FREE!)

If you are using a consistent width of bubble wrap, instead of time-wasting, dangerous and inaccurate free cutting.... Have it slit!

You can have up to 4 slits* (making 5 mini rolls) put into your standard 1500mm wide bubble roll for FREE!! * More slits per roll (up to 10) are available for a small additional charge.

Extra Hint: If you are currently buying retail size rolls consider getting a large 100m roll slit into mini rolls the same width for free and save like crazy on your bubble wrap usage!

2. Perforate your Bubble into easy Tear-off Portions (in repeated task applications)

Again, if you are using a repetitive size of bubble or PE foam wrap, make huge time and wastage savings by having your roll perforated along its length.

Also, less time with a box-cutter means less injury worries too! Just designate the perforation you required (eg. 500mm) and for a small fee your roll can be customised to your requirements.  

3. Laminate your Bubble! (or Don't Double Wrap!)
 
If you are double wrapping your product in bubble wrap and paper or foam, then consider saving labour by an all in one solution with laminated bubble.
 
For example:   
* P10K is bubble wrap laminated to kraft paper for ultra strong, writable, wrapping.   
* Consider P10F for a 1mm PE foam laminated to the bubble to reduce ‘bubble marks’ on products with a delicate finish.   

4. Dispense it and save space, damage and labour!

Bulky bubblewrap is easily tamed when it is dispensed properly. Free up your valuable floor space, have less damaged bubbles and save labour lugging/flipping rolls to cut wrap by using a bubble wrap dispenser. Either make your own to suit with the creative use of a mounted broomstick, or buy a sturdy bubble wrap roll dispensing stand.

5. Watch out for Cubage/Freight Charges (or Compare Apples with Apples!)

Be aware of cheap sounding bubble wrap with seperate freight charges! The additional $12-$15 per roll(!) that is often charged will distort the pricing of your bubble wrap.. making sure you get a lot less bang (or pop!) for your buck!
