What is The Best Way To Pack My Clothes For A Move? Part 1

By

The thought of packing up all the items in your closet, giving them to a Manchester NH moving company and having to repack them at the other end can make even the most motivated person give up in despair. However, packing clothing does not need to be the chore that it may look like. A To Z Express Movers has a team of professionals that can get the job done for you. Here are a few tips to keep in mind when packing up clothing for a move.

Cleaning Out Your Closet

This is the perfect opportunity to get rid of stuff that you longer need or wear! The rules of thumb is that if it has been more than a year since you wore it, or if it no longer fits or is at least three years out of date, then donate it to charity. Throw out ay clothing that is torn, stained or just no longer wearable. If you have lots of suits or dresses or other items that you do not want to fold, you may want to invest in a wardrobe box. These long boxes have metal bars at the top where clothing can hang from.

If you are moving cross-country, especially from a colder state up north to a warmer state down south, or vice versa, you should also donate anything that is inappropriate for the climate you’re moving to. moversnh

Sorting For Different Seasons

If you’ve already cleaned out your closet, then sorting clothing by season should be an easy task. Since you are unlikely to need them right away, starting with the out of season clothing is often the easiest task. Label the boxes with what the contents are, and you can unpack these boxes last when you get to your new home, making it more convenient for you.

 

Clothing is heavy and people tend to accumulate too much to begin with. If you haven’t worn it, used it or needed it in a few years, it’s time to get rid of it. With the free space you’ve reclaimed, your packing process should move much more smoothly! It will only help you in the end.
