Moving: how to pack clothes?

The mistake many people make is that they do not manage this phase with sufficient organization, leaving room for improvisation.

Organise your clothes

The scene no one wants to be in front of is arriving at their new home and being treated to a pile of jackets, shirts and trousers all crammed together !

Getting clothes ready for a move requires a preliminary phase, called cataloging.


So start by separating your clothes by category, for example: shirts, trousers, dresses, jackets, etc. This will make the unpacking process easier when you are in your new home.


The more detailed the cataloguing, the easier it will be to address the operational phases of the move with reference to the clothes. Therefore, it would be appropriate to group the different types of clothing according to seasonal characteristics.

You could, for example, stack all the winter sweaters and summer T-shirts and perhaps place them next to other items that refer to the same seasons.

Among other things, it would be helpful to ask yourself what you need to eliminate before you move to perhaps make a donation and free up space by abandoning what you no longer use.

Gather all the necessary materials

Make sure you have available:

  • Cardboard boxes: Choose boxes of appropriate size based on the amount of clothes you need to carry.
  • Clothes bags.
  • Wrapping paper or plastic sheets: Use these materials to protect your clothes from damage. Anything that can create bulk and thickness, in these situations, can lend an essential helping hand.
  • Labels or pens: Make sure you label the boxes so you know what’s inside and which room they go in. It is not recommended that you find the boxes in your new home after you move in and wait to open them one by one to know exactly what is inside, inside.

How to use the boxes

  • How to fold: Fold your clothes carefully to avoid unwanted wrinkles.
  • Filling: Fill boxes to the maximum to prevent clothes from moving during transport.
  • Labeling: Label each box with its contents and destination room.

Take advantage of garment bags.

  • Hang clothes: use garment bags for items you don’t want to fold. Hang clothes inside the bags and close them tightly.
  • Sensitive items: For delicate clothes or special clothing, consider using zipper bags to keep them protected.

Create a thickness

  • Wrapping paper: to avoid damage to more delicate clothing, wrap items in wrapping paper or plastic sheets.
