4 mil. Poly tubing is my go-to... it protects the rugs for PU/delivery, is re-usable, and when it’s beaten up, I use it for garbage, or to transport dirty towels from the shop to be cleaned, or, cleAn towels back ...

Paper is biodegradable. Plastic lasts forever. Not necessarily my belief but we are losing plastic bags to paper every day. Next here is the liquor store. I'll have to get larger pockets.
Craft paper is coated... biodegradable is questionable....

Paper only protects for dry. Not all the oil and pre-spray's on your vans floor.
A shelf system in your van will keep rugs clean without wasting wrapping.
Paper is slippery and those pictures looked like a shoemaker was moving rugs around.

Box Wine comes in a box, hence the name! No paper required!

Me too, but why the twine with the paper?
No reason. That’s just how I roll.

But now that I think of it. In the town where I grew up there was a barbecue place that would wrap your to go plates and brown paper and twine, maybe that’s why.

The wrap for delivery gives the customer an impression that you're being careful with their now clean rugs, but it probably would be good to go for a neater look.

For storage, paper or Tyvek. They both breathe.
Kraft paper is cheap and recyclable, but not tear resistant.
Tyvek is tougher, but far more expensive, so use it where you can charge for it.

Plastic film is cost effective.
