In which circumstances do you need a double layer of bubble wrap?

With most things that you need to protect, whether it is for moving home or office, or for storage or shipping things in the post, then a single layer of bubble wrap for moving should be enough for the maximum amount of protection from damage.

  • When you are protecting the heaviest of items, you will need a double layer at least of high-quality bubble wrap. The reason for this is because the heavier than an item is, the harder it will fall if it is dropped on the floor accidentally. It will need more cushioning from the blow, and a double layer will provide that extra cushioning required ensuring that the item remains safe. If just a single layer of bubble wrap online was put around a really heavy item, then the bubbles would pop too easily, and damage would happen.
  • When you are protecting the most delicate of things from your home, it is also important to put a double layer around your things. The reason being because if an item is extremely delicate, like an ornament, then even the tiniest of blows will cause a lot of damage to your item. If you put a double layer of protection around it, then the ornament will not feel a thing, and will remain in excellent condition no matter what happens.
