Because shrink-wrap is so versatile, large objects such as flat-beds or heavy machinery equipment can be wrapped all at once and ready to ship. This saves you a tremendous amount of time, for example, if you are packing up an entire warehouse or an office space. Shrink-wrapping is one of the best cost-effective solutions to save time and money, while alleviating the stress of transporting large objects.

Not only is there a ton of bulky packaging out there, it can be bad for the environment. If you are eco-friendly, shrink-wrap is a great packing material that is recyclable.
