How to Pack a Wardrobe Box – Packing tips

Packing a Wardrobe Box – Great way to move clothes hanging in your closet

One of the best packing tips we can give you is to always get all of your household items packed into sturdy cardboard boxes. (Plastic bags won’t really work)

A wardrobe box is the largest standard-sized box that most movers use for packing. Our wardrobe boxes measure 24’’ x 21’’ x 49’’ and come with a 24’’ metal hanging bar.

It is specially designed to safely transport hanging clothes during the course of the move (Hanging closet clothes, such as coats, boutique items, suit jackets, dresses, and any other hanging shirts or pants).

Your clothes will not become wrinkled during the move, because you can leave your clothes on the hanger.


That’s the price for 6 large wardrobe boxes!

This is the price for only 3 smaller wardrobe boxes!


Since clothes can simply be moved from a closet and hung on the box’s metal hanging bar, unpacking is really quick and simple. Once at the new location, just transfer the hanging clothes back into the new closet.

Packing advice

*Be sure not to put too much on the floor of the box or you will wrinkle the clothes inside. Light items like pillows work perfectly.

*The most accurate way to determine how many wardrobe boxes you will need, is to separate the clothes into 2-foot increments in the closet. Then, just count how many 2-foot sections you have. That’s how many wardrobe boxes you’ll need.
