Dimensions 18" X 18" X 28"


The china carton is designed more for professional, rather than homeowner use. It is a large double wall carton designed to be self supporting. This carton will protect your fine china and crystal, while supporting a load without any internal filler.

Packed correctly, goods within a china carton can withstand moderate to heavy shock, without sustaining damage.

After assembling the carton, a pad made up of twelve to fourteen sheets of crumpled newsprint should be placed evenly in the bottom of the carton. This will effectively provide a shock absorber for the bottom layer of goods. Heavier items such as mixing bowls, dinner plates, large vases, or decanters, etc, should be packed on edge (not as they sit on the table), or vertically (in the case of decanters, etc.), to fill the bottom layer in the carton.

Another pad of twelve to fourteen sheets of crumpled newsprint should be applied to the top of this layer to provide a buffer for the next layer. This layer should be made up of smaller bowls, bread and butter plates, water glasses, etc. These pieces should also be packed on edge or vertically. Vertically and on edge is probably starting to sound like a broken record. There is a reason. If things are packed horizontally in a large carton, the compaction factor could be twenty layers or more, when they are packed on edge or vertically, the factor is reduced to three or four. The lower the factor; the less risk of damage. OK. Back to packing a china carton!

The third and probably last layer, must be supported, once again, on a pad of crumpled newsprint. This layer can be made up of fine crystal, ornaments, and general bric-a–brac found in a kitchen. Small spaces on top of this layer can be filled with well wrapped small pieces such as salt and pepper shakers, tea cups, etc. Well wrapped, as there is no buffering layer between the third layer and these final pieces, and, as always, on edge or vertically.

Fill any remaining airspace in the carton with crumpled newsprint, and seal the carton on all seams. Now label it well on the top and two adjacent sides.

Et Voila!!! You've packed a china carton.

REMEMBER, PREPARATION IS EVERYTHING!

Dimensions 18" X 15" X 12½"


Two cubic foot cartons are used when packing books, records, canned goods, liquids, or any other material of that density. Generally speaking, these items are uniform in size, and fairly hardy. They do not usually need to be wrapped individually as long as like pieces are packed together.

The exception is, of course, glass bottles, which, if making a clinking noise may break, or, if turned upside down, may spill. This particular pack should be well marked, THIS SIDE UP AND FRAGILE. As always, fill the unused portion of the carton with buffer materials.

Pack all items vertically as you will reduce the risk of damage.

This is a good general purpose carton for items of moderate density. This means no books, records, canned goods, etc. When these cartons are filled with heavy items, they make our movers look funny, (legs get too short, arms too long). A four cubic foot carton is best suited for general kitchen wares, stereo equipment, some lampshades (isolated in a carton with no other items), children's toys, heavier linens, and shoes. I trust that this picture is taking on color.

Items packed in a four cubic foot carton are not usually uniform in size or weight; therefore it is important to use plenty of the appropriate buffer material to fill the carton and properly protect the items within. Remember, a carton that will collapse is the worst offender of a good job.

Dimensions 18 X 18 X 27"


When packing a five cubic foot carton, you must think lighter, taller, bulkier, etc. These units are designed for bedding, children's toys, teddy bears or lamps, in general, lighter things that just require a larger carton. Once again, it is important to fill empty spaces with crumpled paper or some other bulking medium to prevent collapse of the carton.

Dimensions 24" X 36" Sheets (unprinted)


Packed in a convenient twenty-five pound, tri-folded package, wrapped in, this product is the most cost efficient medium to pack and buffer anything you are going to put in a carton.

Newsprint can be crumpled to just about any density, so depending upon the weight of the articles to be packed; the amount of newsprint used can be easily adjusted to protect your belongings.

Mattress Bags

Packnwrapunlimted.com unlimted savings on packing supplies
Dimensions Four Sizes - 39", 54", 60", 84"
Translated, this means:
  • 39" - single
  • 54" - double
  • 60" - queen
  • 84" - king

These are fitted bags designed to protect your mattresses and boxsprings against soiling, dampness, and minor abrasion. It should be noted that each piece of your bed that you would like protected would require a separate bag.

The easiest way to pack a mattress bag is to stand the mattress on end, pull the bag down over it entirely. The next step is to flip the mattress on the opposite end and pull the bag up firmly. This will provide a tight fit. You will be less likely to puncture the bag. Using plenty of two inch poly tape, simply close the end and seal it.

Mirror/picture Cartons, Both Large and Small


Dimensions
  • Large 42 X 3 ½ X 36
  • Small 37 ½ X 3 X 32

As the name suggests, mirror/picture cartons are designed for packing mirrors, pictures, glass tops, and any other thin flat item that needs packaging to be protected.

The first step is to assemble the carton. Both sizes of this carton are telescopic, that is, to say, each has two parts, an inner, and an outer sleeve. These may also be labeled top and bottom. Assemble the inner/bottom sleeve folding on the scores at one end. Completely tape these seams; it adds strength and safety to the carton. Next, slip the outer/top sleeve over the assembled section with the scores facing in the opposite direction from the closed end of the inner part. This should give you a carton closed on the bottom, open on the top, ready for filling. The outer sleeve can be moved up to vary the actual length of the completed unit. A very versatile multi- fit carton, don't you think?

We'll deal with closing this carton once we've finished packing it.

On with the job! Crumple twelve to fifteen sheets of newsprint in the bottom of the carton, taking care to maximize the bulking capability of the paper. Depending upon the thickness of the pieces to be packed, two or more items can be packed in the same carton with pieces of corrugated material between them to prevent rubbing and other damage. Finer frames should be wrapped with micro foam within the carton. Care should be taken not to put paper or any material between the pieces to be protected and the front or back of the carton. Doing so will defeat the airspace and transmit any outside force on the carton to the pieces inside. Not a good thing!

Once the pieces have been chosen and placed in the centre of the carton on the pad of crumpled paper, pull the outer sleeve up until the carton is larger than the item(s) within the package. Once again, twelve to fifteen sheets of newsprint should be crumpled over the top and corners of the pieces inside. Fold in the scores on the outer section and tape all seams. Push the carton firmly together and tape the final seam between the two sections. This will give a tight fit that will not shift within the carton.

Label this carton on both front and back, using a broad chisel point marker, with only the room where you would like the carton placed. Remember it takes extra time for your mover to read the artist's name and when he painted it! Time is money, your money.

Done.

Wardrobe Carton

A wardrobe carton is four feet tall, comes with its' own steel bar at the top, and will hold approximately two feet of clothes from your closet bar, packed to whatever density you are comfortable with. This being said, the tighter you pack a wardrobe carton, the more likely you are to defeat its' purpose, that being to keep your hanging clothes clean and wrinkle free.

The first step is to assemble the carton and hang the bar to receive your clothes. It is important to seal all of the bottom seams, as this will provide more stability for the carton, making it less likely to collapse.

Packing the first half of the closet bar is fairly straight forward, however, the method for the second half bears mention. Clothes should be doubled and pushed down below the position where they will hang. They should then be brought up to their position on the bar. This will help your clothes to hang more naturally, and prevent any bunching.

The wardrobe carton is precut with slots to close it. These tabs are designed to be pushed down into the carton, not protrude from it.

Done.
