This may take you back to a childhood of blowing up party balloons and inhaling lungs full of helium gas, but our new and improved range of wholesale protective transit packaging for bottles is actually an inflatable airbag we call Safe Air. It’s essentially an air bag for bottles. A clever one.
It’s the very latest lightweight technology for protecting bottles in transit, and combines some of the most advanced manufacturing processes on the market. Who’d have thought the answer to sending bottles safely as a gift through the post would use something we breathe for free every day. Take a look…
Safe Air Saves Bottles
We all know it can be a nightmare transporting wine and Champagne through the courier network. Not long ago we looked at some of the key problems why, along with some of the budget, mid-range and luxury transit packaging options on the market in our blog ‘how to send bottles through the post’. Not only are couriers increasingly reluctant even to carry liquids, but when you finally do source an accommodating courier, it can be a costly mess if breakages occur. So if you get the packaging right the first time, preferably packaging that has already been courier approved, then hey presto – a lot less drama at the other end.
If you were one of the lucky few who tried Safe Air the first time round, you’ll be glad to know that it now comes with even better quality polythene and the mini industrial air compressor used to insert the air, is back with an improved valve for faster inflation. The valve makes inflation faster and quieter too – perfect for smaller runs or office use where you’d rather not compete with the sound of jumbo jet flying past your desk.
So how does Safe Air work?
- Insert your bottle into the Safe Air bag
- Inflate the Safe Air bag using our standard air-pump (sold separately)
- Place the Safe Air bag into your transit outer box and send
It’s as simple as these 3 easy steps.
Although we can’t stress enough that you place the bottle in the bag BEFORE you blow it up, unless you want to be there for days in game of tug of war. The best bit is that the airbags are designed to fit inside the same outers used for Mailsafe and Polysafe transit ranges – and most of you already buy those. So that’s a mix and match made in heaven. It’s also great for keeping pricey bottles of plonk safe inside empty wicker hampers.
The benefits are numerous too!
- Greater protection moulds to contours of bottle
- Dramatically reduce your storage costs
- Dramatically reduces your shipping costs
- Avoids the mess other options such as polystyrene can make
- Cuts down on waste packaging
- 100% recyclable
- Comes in a variety of bottle pack sizes
