BiGDUG recognises that commercial sellers require a huge variety of packaging materials and that these materials are required in a wide range of sizes, materials and specifications. As one of the one of the fastest growing shelving, racking and storage companies in the UK - with more than 20,000 products on our website - we have needed to source the same types and varieties of packaging products that are often used by our own customers. And, as a direct result of having to source our own packaging needs, we have developed a network of trusted and reliable suppliers who we believe can supply our customers with the same high quality materials that they have been supplying to us for many years. These accredited products now include polythene/plastic packaging, postal packaging, tape and sealers, polypropylene/polyester/steel strapping and cardboard boxes.
BiGDUG retains huge stocks of cardboard boxes in our centrally-based warehouse. Manufactured from single, double or triple wall board, and available in small or large quantities, we can supply boxes for general storage applications, house moving, order picking and specific roles like order picking and document archiving. Our Document Boxes, for example, are manufactured from heavy duty corrugated board and are assembled using a simple snap-lock system. Much lighter and cheaper than plastic storage boxes, the lidded-Document Boxes are ideal for office and work environments where papers need to be both stored and accessed regularly. Our Removal Boxes are, similarly job-specific and use the standard tea-chest design to simplify carrying and storing items when moving house. They are available in Small, Large and Medium sizes and as part of a complete House Removal Kit.
Our polythene and plastic packaging is also stocked in huge amounts and available in different sizes, different roll quantities and different grades of material. Like the cardboard boxes, however, it is all sold at market-beating prices. The standard Blown Stretch and Shrink Wrap Films, for example, are heavy duty polythene films suitable for securing palletised loads and for the protection of goods in long term storage. Both will also form a protective seal against dust, dirt and moisture. Custom-fitting Pallet Covers and cut-to-fit Plastic Sheeting can similarly be used to secure and protect the contents of pallets but offer the additional benefit of being re-usable.
Alongside our conventional packaging materials, we also stock huge quantities of Polythene Bags, Plastic Bags, Resealable Bags and lengths of Layflat Tubing that allow the storage bags to be cut and sealed to the size of the products.
Despatching different-sized products can be addressed with our Postal Packaging. This comprehensive range of packaging – combining adaptable contents protection with specified weights and sizes – includes cardboard Postal Boxes, Postal Tubes, Book Boxes, folding Book Wraps, Document Enclosed Wallets, Padded and Polythene Envelopes. We can also provide our customers with the information needed to ensure that any item is despatched in the correctly-sized, most protective and most cost-effective posting category.
Packaging any product has little value unless the package is cushioned and sealed appropriately. We therefore offer a choice of void fill options, different-sized rolls of Bubble Wrap with different-sized bubbles, Foam Rolls and rolls of Tissue and Kraft paper.
To make sure that the parcelled and protected item is then secured correctly, we also stock a huge variety of Tapes, Glues, Sealers and Strappers (and the necessary tools, guns and dispensers) to help to stabilise loads and pallets or to seal parcels, boxes and bags. Cardboard angle boards (or Edge Boards) are also available to protect the vulnerable edges of palletised loads.
BiGDUG buys all of our packaging materials in huge amounts. This means that we can negotiate the best prices with our selected suppliers and can pass these savings directly on to our customers. We even offer a ‘Lowest Price Promise’ with every order. So if you want to order from us (and benefit from our huge levels of stock, exemplary customer service and fast delivery) but have found the same product cheaper elsewhere, then just give us a call and we will try to price-match, or better, that price.
