Shrink wrap is a material that is made of polymer plastic film. Shrink wrap that is heated and then applied to objects shrinks in a very tight manner and offers a considerably degree of protection against bumps, cracks, dirt and scratches. Shrink wrap is commonly used by movers; if you intend to move, you can even use it yourself.
Shrink wrap can be used with furniture but you should be cautious depending on the application. Because it is simultaneously a resistant yet malleable material, shrink wrap is able to cover just about any surface and protect it from the likes of dirt, dust and scratches. Furniture can become very dusty when in a moving van and might even be scratched during the course of relocation; therefore, it is a very good idea to wrap it in shrink wrap to make sure that it is protected.
Home appliances tend to have very practical surfaces that can be scratched only too easily. If your home is an apartment, it should be only too easy for you to be able to imagine what your appliances would have to endure in order to reach the moving van. Use shrink wrap to protect your appliances while they are being taken down all those stairs.
Fragile possessions such as chinaware, dishes and lamps also need to be very well prepared for a move. The safety of such items can never be absolutely guaranteed, even by the most professional moving company; therefore, you need to be certain that you have taken every possible step to safeguard your possessions.
