3 Ways to Protect Your Wardrobe Through Moving and Storage

There are many things that you can do to minimize or eliminate the chances of your clothes becoming damaged or lost during your move. Additionally, a move may cause some of your clothes to be put into storage due to a lack of space. Leaving your clothes in a long-term storage area requires special care and additions to ensure the clothes are protected during their long storage. Below, you will find three ways to protect your wardrobe during a move and through storage.

Moving Company

Your wardrobe is one of the most expensive and extensive collections of items you’ll have to move. When it comes to properly transporting your large wardrobe, it may prove to be more beneficial to hire a professional moving company to do the job for you. One of the major benefits of using this type of service is that they will enter your home and pack your wardrobe personally, ensuring that the clothing items are securely and properly packed for the move. Professional moving companies are also licensed, insured, and bonded for your protection should damages or losses occur.

Do-It-Yourself Protection

Should hiring movers not fit into your current moving budget, there is always the option of utilizing clever tricks and helpful tips to give your wardrobe a do-it-yourself level of protection. When you begin packing clothing items in your wardrobe that should never be folded or bundled, the best packing container for such items are wardrobe boxes. Wardrobe boxes are tall boxes that stand upright and contain a built-in rack on which to hang your delicate and expensive items. Wardrobe boxes provide the typical protection of a cardboard box with the standing convenience of a wardrobe in a more transportable style.

Long-Term Storage

Some of your items may need to be placed into storage for an undetermined amount of time. Most people who encounter this situation will opt to split their possessions, including clothes, between their living space and a storage space. To protect your clothes in storage, always place mothballs in the containers to prevent damage from moths. Air-tight plastic containers are fine, but not plastic bags. Bags can allow moisture in but trap it inside, causing mildew and mold to grow.

Regardless of whether you’re moving your clothes or storing them, the best way to get them ready for their journey is to give them a proper cleaning. This can either be done in a regular washing machine or sending them out to be dry cleaned, depending on the needs of your clothing articles based on their fabric composition.

Not many people think about their clothes when they move. The perfect solution is to fold them correctly and to put them neatly in spacious boxes. Most people are concerned about the moving process, where to find boxes for packing, where to find strong movers for taking the furniture away and so on. Even companies resort to professional commercial moving Harrisburg PA for a better organization and for having time to finish all the paperwork necessary for the moving.

I moved once from my parents' house to my new apartment and it was difficult for me to pack my clothes and furniture correctly. In addition, in my car didn't fit all my boxes, so I used the services of home movers. I got professional help with my move at a good price, because I used the site where I could find all the offers from moving companies in my area. I quickly compared the prices and read the reviews, so it didn’t take a lot of time to choose a moving company. In addition, I received a quota for relocation and was able to save my money.
