In modern homes and flats, occupiers are usually provided with fitted wardrobe space for hanging clothes and plenty of cupboard/shelf space for shoes, handbags and the like. Even when a homeowner has free standing wardrobes the number of items on hangers is often considerable compared to 50 years ago.
To help make moving these items more efficient movers have developed wardrobe cartons with an integral rail, these come in two heights, 40” for suits, trousers, shirts etc and 48” for coats, dresses and the like. It is recommended that people moving home leave the actual hanging items for the moving crew to deal with and concentrate their preparation work on using spare suitcases to pack other loose clothes from shelves and either get the movers to cartonise the shoes, handbags etc. or do this themselves in advance of moving day.
Personal clothes are important to all of us and the investment we have in our wardrobe is often a substantial percentage of our home contents value.
When planning your move ensure that at the delivery address the wardrobe space/length of hanging rail is available to tale your items or make advance arrangements with the removal company to rent or buy some or all of the wardrobe cartons.
Some customers buy wardrobe cartons from moving companies to use in loft space or rented storage unit so they can store out of season or out of style or size items until they need them and thus ensure their wardrobe space is not cluttered up with items not immediately needed.
