When it comes time for moving, many people do not know where to pack clothes. Often times, they end up in a standard box or back. This will leave them wrinkled and they may be damaged too. Moving your clothes from closet to closet can be a breeze with specialty wardrobe boxes. Sturdy boxes should have built-in racks that will hold about two feet of clothes on hangers.
There are several advantages of using specialty wardrobe boxes including:
- Wrinkle-free clothes
- Pack and unpack clothes on hangers with little effort
- Greater protection for expensive clothing such as suits and dresses
If you do not want to use specialty wardrobe boxes, alternatively, you can remove each clothing item from its hanger and carefully fold it into a box or suitcase lined with newspaper.
The ideal way to move your hats is in their original box. If you still have them, you may be able to pack two hat boxes together in a larger moving box. You can also stuff each hat with crumpled newspaper and put them in a box, making sure to completely wrap each one with tissue. Boxes that contain hats should be packed with the heavier hats on the bottom of the box and the lighter hats at the top of the box. It is best not to pack anything other than hats in the boxes containing your hats. This will help to avoid damage.
Leathers and Furs
Because furs and leathers are highly sensitive to both temperature and moisture, we recommend that you keep these items with you. It is best to avoid transporting them with the rest of your belongings. This applies to expensive leather shoes, purses, and other fur and leather items you may have.
