    Default carton boxes

    In the delivery carton box of TV or any electrical appliances, I always found a big plastic pieces with bubbles and big pieces of sort of foam block in white to protect the content from damage during delivery.

    What should I call:

    1. Those big plastic pieces with bubbles

    2. Those big pieces of foam blocks in white
