You deserve to treat your closets full of lovely clothing better than just throwing them in a box. No one wants to spend the first day of their new home sorting, ironing, and organizing all their clothes. When it comes to packing, you need to remember that what goes in the box will return out. We have all the information you need to pack clothes the right way. Take a look.
Donate or sell anything you don’t wear.
It’s not worth carrying around clothing you don’t use, especially if there is someone who might need it. Before you begin to pile clothes into bags or boxes, take a look at what you’ve worn for a while and get rid of anything that you don’t need anymore. You can either donate the clothes or sell gently worn clothes on consignment. You can make space in your closet for new pieces by reducing the pieces you love.
Before you move, clean your clothes.
It is a good idea to plan to take all your suits and delicates to the dry cleaners. You can send anything that has been sat in a drawer or hanging out in the closet too long to the dry cleaners. You must ensure that everything is completely dry. It is a recipe for disaster to pack damp or dirty clothes with your clean items.
How to pack your hanging clothes for moving?
Hanging clothes can be transported and unpacked easily by keeping them on their hangers. Ask your movers to provide wardrobe boxes. A hanging bar is installed at the top. Simply take your clean clothes and hang them in the appropriate-sized boxes. You can then seal the box and place it on top of your truck. You can keep your clothes organized and wrinkle-free. You may find other perfectly-sized packing items that will make the move even more simple.
Drawers are a great way to organize your boxes.
To organize your other folded clothes, you can use packing paper. A medium-sized container is often a good size. Although clothing isn’t very heavy, large boxes can be heavy and unwieldy for your moving crew. To keep your clothes clean, line the bottom of the box using packing paper. Then put something that can withstand compression. You can think of t-shirts, pajamas, and athletic clothes. To designate a new drawer, or category of clothes, add another layer of packing papers.
You should pack the box full but not overstuffed. Full boxes won’t stack on the truck or dolly well, and boxes that are partially full could collapse. If you are running out of space, move on to the next box!
To roll or to fold?
No one can agree on which method is best for packing clothes to move. Should you fold the clothes or roll them? Both have their pros and cons. Rolling can take a little longer, but if done correctly can keep your shirts wrinkle-free and take up less space. While folding is fast and simple, it can cause wrinkles in the middle of your garment. Theoretically, folding takes up more space as garments cannot be folded together in the same manner. It doesn’t matter what your preference is, just keep organizing the things!
Smaller items can be stored in smaller bags and boxes.
Socks, underwear, and other smaller items are difficult to fold and stack. With these items, it’s easier to just toss your clothes in a bag and pack them for the move. You can keep your socks organized by using a gallon-sized plastic bag. These bags can be used to store your socks in one place. Some small items, such as a belt or hat collection might fit better in smaller boxes. For tips on packing your shoes, take a look at our blog
