Talking Where to buy clingfilm for packaging?

Hello folks,

Where would I be able to buy strong clingfilm to post something large and awkwardly shaped? I need to wrap it around the whole thing.

Unfortunately I don't have time to buy some off of the internet so I'll have to go in to one of those horrible shops. Where would you recommend?

Thanks

Look up packaging materials on Yell.com for your local area?

the cling film for packaging is called "shrink wrap" or "heat wrap"

Well then, Staples has Caterwrap designed for food for 10 which seems a bit steep. Storage World near me has some for a fiver, not sure what its like though, sending the missus on a mission to get some hehe. She won't have a clue its for her.

Are you sorted with this? I actually work at a manufacturer of this stuff...can you not wait till tomorrow for an FOC 'sample'?

And make sure she gets pallet wrap, stretch film, and not the food grade stuff!.
