How To Package Flooring – The Packaging Doctor
The Surgery Is Now Open
I am the owner of a small but profitable business, that specialises in selling high-quality, bespoke flooring. The flooring is very popular but unfortunately due to the current packaging, rough handling in transit, and the fact it is prone to scratching/scuffing, more often than not the flooring arrives damaged!
What can I use to package my products cheaply but to ensure this doesn't keep happening? It's beginning to have an impact on my businesses reputation and is incredibly frustrating.
I can understand your frustration, it is difficult when you produce a high quality product and through no fault of your own it is damaged in transit. However a good packaging solution can resolve these problems fairly quickly. I would simply suggest wrapping the product in large bubble-wrap for initial protection and to prevent impact damage, then wrapping again in Kraft paper. Kraft paper is a lot more resilient than you might think as it's 'virgin' status means it offers high tear resistance. It also looks very clean and professional, perfect for your high-quality, bespoke brand.
