Where to buy - A huge plastic sack

Looking for a heavy-ish weight bag that you could fit a sofa in, maybe 3m x 2m .. Even online I'm struggling to find them.

It's for a massive bean bag (ultimatesack) . It's in use now but i'm thinking ahead to storage or moving.. Big bag, vacuum cleaner etc .. Right now it does not even fit in a lift..

Re: Where to buy - A huge plastic sack

What I have done in similar situations, is to go to a DIY store and buy a sheet of heavy gauge plastic - they have sheets up to 4m square.
Then buy a roll of good duck tape (fabric based adhesive tape).
Then you can wrap whatever you like - very versatile

Re: Where to buy - A huge plastic sack

At some of the self storage places they sell bags for 180x200 mattresses and for sofas. Might that work?

There is one in Etoy near the Hornbach store. Have a look under the section "HOUSSES DE PROTECTION COUVERTURES". They also sell on-line.

Re: Where to buy - A huge plastic sack

I think most mattress stores also sell large plastic "bags" that are intended for storing or transporting mattresses. We bought one once from a mattress store for our 180 x 200 cm mattress when we moved.
