All My Sons Moving & Storage offers moving and packing services in Birmingham to make any local or long distance move easier on you and your family. When preparing for your upcoming move, our professional team recommends you try these tips for packing clothes:
Use Garbage bags
Tie garbage bags around 15-20 hangers. This is the easiest way to keep all your items in order and on their hangers. Plus, the garbage bags will keep them from getting torn or dirty during a move.
Make use of shoes
Get extra room for your shoes by filling them with undergarments and socks.
Keep your drawers full
The packers and movers at All My Sons of Birmingham don’t mind if you keep your clothes in all their drawers – they’ll still move it for you. This makes unpacking so much easier.
Save on packing materials
No need for bubble wrap – make use of thicker clothing by wrapping breakables like dishes and glasses inside thicker sweaters, pants, or blankets.
Vacuum seal unused clothing
Out of season clothing will only take up unnecessary space during your transition from one home to the next. Instead, pack out of season clothing together and vacuum seal the bags so they take up minimal room. The Birmingham packing services offered at All My Sons include storage for you to hold these and other unused items during your move.
Pack lighter colors inside out, and wrap the base of your shoes with disposable shower caps or saran wrap.
Packing order matters
Pack the clothing items you’ll need for the first few days last, at the very top of your boxes. This way you don’t have to frantically search through boxes of clothing to find appropriate work clothes or pajamas.
Never throw away old or outgrown clothing, donate it to someone in need.
Keep these tips for packing clothes in mind as you prepare for your move to Birmingham!
