    Hi.

    I'm trying to find somewhere to buy good quality bubble wrap and box tape at reasonable prices.
    I've found loads of sellers at cheap prices on ebay and Amazon but the reviews are so mixed. Some people say they are awful products, some say they are great for their needs.
    Does anyone know where to get decent products at cheap prices? I don't mind paying a bit more for quality but some are just so overpriced.

    Thanks

    We buy pretty much all of our packaging materials from eBay sellers. If you want to be sure of quality, go for known brands such as Mail Lite or Jiffy for padded envelopes, 3M for tape, etc, etc.

    Bubble wrap is more of an unknown but we've never had problems going for the cheap stuff.

    Again I'm with the others, in the past I would buy all my packaging from ebay.

    Thanks all.
    I ended up ordering from Amazon because they have customer reviews.
    I ordered a 6pk of 3m Scotch packing tape and Realpack bubble wrap.
    They both had mixed good and bad reviews as did all the others. I'll have to wait till they arrive to see for myself..

    We use 3M Scotch tape. As long as they send you the genuine stuff its really good - very sticky and very strong.
