However, whatever it is that you are going to place inside your moving boxes, you should make sure that your boxes can handle such items.
For example, clothes are easy to transport. You do not need any particular kind of protection for them. They are not fragile, so moving them around in transport will not harm them.

Hanging wardrobe boxes
Do you need to transport clothes that you store on hangers? Say no more. Hanging wardrobe boxes will enable you to pack and protect your items without taking them off of hangers. So, once you move all that you would have to do is to place them back on the rack in your closet and you will be unpacked. Simple, isn’t it?
Now, if you have access clothes, you might want to donate some of them to charity. Otherwise, in the case that you are going to need all of it, but lack space to store them, you may choose to hire residential storage units Virginia. Winter clothes can be kept here during summer and vice versa. In the time when buying a home is very difficult, so people opt for buying smaller homes, this can represent a good storage option.
Lay down wardrobe moving boxes
Unlike hanging boxes, lay down wardrobe moving boxes are made for packing folded clothes. They are pretty wide but can fit only a few items. Obviously, you will be packing your clothes one on top of another. They measure in size 32 x 19 7/8 x 9. Therefore, the idea behind making boxes of such dimension is to ensure that users pack enough clothes for transport, but to avoid wrinkling them.
Picture and mirror moving boxes
These boxes, as the name suggests, are made for packing fragile items like pictures, mirrors, paintings, etc. One of the best perks of having a picture and mirror moving boxes is the fact that each box is telescopic in nature. Therefore, you can extend each box as much as you want. While they are very protective of the cargo that fits inside them, we would still suggest that you use bubble wrap when packing your mirrors, pictures, and paintings for the move.
If you are moving your paintings, make sure to protect them correctly
