How to Pack Wardrobe Boxes

Let us show you how to move your suits, dresses, and coats both hassle and wrinkle free.

This video demonstrates how to professionally pack a closet for a move. Whether you're moving locally or long distance -- you'll want to pack your clothing carefully to prevent damage.

Key Concepts:

✓ Assemble the box correctly.  The bar snaps into place in the grooves at the top.

✓ For longer items, put the bottom inside the box before hanging on the bar.

✓ Don't overload boxes!  These are typically the biggest moving boxes so care must be taken when loading them.

✓ Light items like pillows can be packed into the extra space at the bottom.

Tips and Tricks


1. Assemble and pack wardrobe boxes carefully.

Wardrobe boxes must be assembled and packed correctly to avoid injury.  The metal rung snaps into place and should not be overloaded.  Load items by placing the bottom in the box before hanging on the rung.  When finished, always tape over the metal rung on the outside to avoid potential injury during transport; the bar can be sharp and cause injury.

2. Get the most out of your box.

Wardrobe boxes can get expensive.  You can save space by packing light items, like pillows, in the bottom of the box.  Be careful not to overload.  Additionally, you can use a second rung in one box to create two levels of hanging clothes when packing small items and children's clothing.
