Do Long-Distance Movers Pack Clothes?

The answer to this question is yes. Long-distance movers will pack clothes for you. This is one of the services that Rocky Movers offers to make your move easier and more convenient. We understand that not everyone has the time or ability to pack their clothes, so they are happy to do it for you. All you need to do is provide them with a list of items you need to be packed, and they will take care of the rest.

How do Cross State Movers Pack Clothes?

Packing clothes for a cross-state move is similar to packing them for any other type of move. The primary kind of box that you will need is a wardrobe box. This type of box is designed to hold hanging clothes and has a bar on which you can hang your clothes. You can also use regular boxes for packing clothes, but you will need to fold them instead of hanging them.

Take Full Advantage of the Wardrobe box!

You may want to take full advantage of the wardrobe box if you have many heavy items, such as boots or winter coats. You can pack these items at the bottom of the box, so they don’t take up as much space. This will also make it easier to move the box since it will be less bulky.

Where Can I Buy Wardrobe Boxes?

You can find wardrobe boxes at most moving supply stores. You can also order them online from Amazon or ULINE. We can also provide you with wardrobe boxes if you need them.

How Many Wardrobe Boxes Do I Need?

The number of boxes you need will depend on the size of your home and the number of clothes you have. An excellent rule of thumb is to have one box for every two feet of linear closet space. So, if you have a 10-foot-long closet, you will need five boxes.

How Much Does a Wardrobe Box Cost?

A wardrobe box typically costs between $17 and $36, depending on the size and where you buy it. An assembled small wardrobe box measures 24″ X24″ X34″ and can hold about 70 pounds of clothes. A large wardrobe box, which is 24″ X24″ X48″, can hold about 90 pounds of clothes.

Packing Clothes for a Long-Distance Move

Now that you know how to pack clothes for a move, it’s time to start packing. Here are some packing tips to help you get started:

  • Start with the items you wear the least. These can be stored at the bottom of the box or in a separate box altogether.
  • Pack heavier items, such as jeans and sweaters, first. This will help to keep the boxes from getting too heavy.
  • Roll your clothes instead of folding them. This will save space and prevent wrinkles.
  • Use packing paper or old towels to cushion your clothes and prevent them from shifting in the box.
  • Label the wardrobe boxes as “Fragile” if they contain delicate items.

What Should I Pack First?

When packing clothes for a move, it is best to start with the items that you will need the least. This includes out-of-season garments, formal wear, and things you don’t wear often. You can pack these items separately or at the bottom of the box.

What Should I Pack Last?

The last thing you should pack is the items you use every day. This includes underwear, socks, pajamas, and other items you may need immediately. It would be best if you also packed a suitcase with a few days’ worths of clothes, so you don’t have to unpack everything at once.
