    POSTAL TUBES for Wallpaper (EbaY) 16th Apr 19 at 9:52 AM
    Hi all.

    Am wondering if any of you sell wallpaper on Ebay, and if so which methods do you use to send it?

    ?Single postal tubes ?Can u get packaging for more than one roll

    ?Corrugated cardboard and bubblewrap

    And which postal methods do you find most cost-effective?

    Many thanks in advance for being able to pick your brains

    More than 1 roll a longer tube or box them, just make sure they cannot move up and down in the package and break free at the ends.

    I have ordered long items that came in a very solid tube, Doubt they are cheap though. 6" - 8" diameter with ends caps.

    Most cost effective will depend on the final size and weight.
    Punctuation, Spelling and Grammar will be used sparingly. Due to rising costs of inflation.

    My contribution to MSE. Other contributions will only be used if they cost me nothing.

    Due to me being a tight git.

    The carpets shops usually have long tubes which may be useful. They are probably 5-6 inches in diameter.

    You may be able to get 3 rolls of wallpaper inside (in a triangular pattern)

    MyHermes probably will be the best courier, as I would imagine wallpaper is too wide to be sent as a 'small parcel' with Royal Mail

    I have sold a few lots of wallpaper and I wrapped them in cardboard, like a made to measure box, then wrapped with lots of brown tape and some more for luck. Posted via hermes and buyers have been happy.

    I have always wrapped the rolls with corrugated card and made my own parcel
