A lot of preparation and planning goes into the process of moving into a new home. All these preparations are important to make sure that all your possessions will also go with you to your new home. This means that none of your key possessions will be left behind and they are ready for unpacking and use once you arrive at your destination.
Packing your belongings is part of preparing for a move. One of the particular items that you own which you should make sure you pack properly is your clothes. Although you may say that it is more important that all your clothes arrive in your new home before or at the same time that you do, still, you would do well to pack all your wardrobes properly so that they don’t get damaged and you can wear them immediately after the move.
Below are some useful tips you can follow for packing your clothes for your move:
Find out if you can leave your clothes inside the drawers of your bedroom cabinets.
If you find the task of emptying your dresser prior to your move too much work, check with the movers if you can simply leave your clothes inside them. The movers may have no problem with this, especially if the cabinet wouldn’t be too heavy, even if your clothes are in them. However, make sure that these drawers can be locked and you have the keys to open them once they have been delivered to your new home.
Use the right storage unit.
Regular boxes will work if you pack smart. This entails folding and labeling the contents of your closet or clothes in a systematic fashion so that many of them can fit in each box. By packing properly, you get to avoid wrinkling your clothes too much as well. In addition, you can use some sort of tissue or packing paper to keep your clothes in the box clean and fresh.
Specialty wardrobe boxes with built-in racks can also be used to transport hanging clothes. If you want your clothes to arrive at your destination wrinkle-free, consider investing in and using them for the move.
Use your luggage.
Lastly, if you have some large-sized luggage and you’ll be bringing them with you when you move, fill them with your clothes. Your luggage will be perfect for moving your delicate or pricey clothing items. Using your luggage will also enable you to easily identify where your clothes are on the moving truck.
