Clothing Packing Before Residential Moving

In this blog entry, the expert Tri-State area residential moving service team here at Noah’s Ark Moving and Storage will detail some expert tips for packing clothing for your home moving service needs.

Sorting Clothes

Clothes are some of the most common items that people hang on to after they are too worn out to wear or no longer match our tastes. Moving is a fantastic opportunity to get rid of clothing that you no longer want or need. Residential moving clients who choose to avoid getting rid of clothing often regret this, as they will have more time, energy, and money spent on moving items that they don’t really want or need. Some tips for sorting clothes include:

  • Assessing wardrobe contents in a wide open space for a total picture of what clothing you own, before packing
  • Choosing a moving day outfit in advance and setting it aside
  • Making different piles of “to wear”, “to store”, “to donate”, and “to sell”.
  • Throw out clothing that’s super uncomfortable or worn out
  • Try items when confused to determine what pile it should go in. consider the last time you wore certain garments, and if you’ll miss them if they are gone
  • When you’ve sorted clothing into piles, make plans to move it to its new designated area. Consider how much time you have and potential money you could earn before deciding if you want to try to sell clothing in good condition to thrift stores or online


Clothing Packing Supplies

Proper packing supplies for clothing can lower how much work you need to do. Fill up the suitcase with folded clothing. Consider wardrobe boxes to contain clothing that is delicate or easy to wrinkle. Fill regular cardboard boxes with sweaters, bulky clothes, or larger clothing items. Use garbage bags to protect clothing that needs to stay hung during your move.

 

Packing Closets

If you already have clothing folded in a dresser, ask your moving team if you can leave them inside the dresser during the move. This saves you time and space, and helps keep clothes unwrinkled. Just use stretch wrap to keep your drawers securely closed during travel.fit smaller clothing around fragile or breakable items for insulation. ALWAYS pack shoes separately in order to keep clothing clean. Pack heavier items at the bottom of boxes to help minimize wrinkling. Use smaller boxes for heavier items so that you have an easier time lifting boxes. Make sure to pack infrequently used items separately from items you need every day in order to make the unpacking process much easier. Finally, Always clearly label boxes to make the entire packing, loading, and unpacking process far simpler.
