Closets can contain a heavy multitude of items requiring special packing and moving. A great way to start is with wardrobe boxes, essentially small cardboard closets with metal hanger bars that let you hang clothes inside them. While they are not cheap, they are sometimes a good investment. You should also use your suitcases and baggage to transport clothes, since you have to move both anyways. You can also use 30-50 gallon drawstring trash bags to pack up bundles of clothes, still on the hanger, and protect them.
- Purchase wardrobe boxes, which will protect your clothes during the moving process.
- Vacuum seal bags are a good option, as they are water-tight and air tight.
- Plastic bins are a more expensive option, but they are waterproof and you can see through them.
“Suitcases are designed to hold clothing and personal belongings, and make for a perfect closet moving solution. To maximize the space inside your suitcase, try rolling your clothing (this works for shirts, blouses, underwear and pants) before placing them inside. This will also help cut down wrinkles.”
