When it comes to moving, protecting your fabrics is essential. During your move, they can be easily damaged by dirt and dust from the move or from items being shifted around them. Fortunately, with many years of experience under their belts, the residential movers here at Solomon & Sons Relocation Services are going to go over a few important tips to help protect your fabrics during a move! 

Casual & Formal Wear

When it comes to your clothing and formal wear, you should know that there are different ways you need to move them. Regular daily clothing is different from formal wear since they don’t need to be as protected. That is why, if you need to move your casual clothing and formal wear, consider:

  • Getting Moving Boxes for Casual Clothing
  • Wardrobe Boxes for Formal Wear
  • Rent Wardrobe Boxes from a Moving Company

Of course, if you don’t want to do any of the packing that you need for your clothing, then you should consider hiring a team of local or long-distance movers who have the materials to safely pack and transport them.

Protecting Your Mattresses & Furniture

Don't let transporting your mattress and furniture be a nightmare by getting affordable furniture and mattress plastic wrap bags! Lightweight plastic versions provide basic protection for your furniture and mattresses, while more durable mattress cardboard boxes can protect your mattresses against accidental tearing. So, whatever you need for the journey ahead, rest assured that there's an option to suit every budget and requirement.

Keep Your Curtains Damage-Free

Curtains are some of the most sensitive fabric items that can be damaged during a move. From regular curtains to custom curtains, there are different things you can do before and during your move to protect them from damage. So, if you are planning on leaving them behind or taking them with you, then you should:

  • Give Your Curtains to Someone Else
  • Cover Them in Plastic
  • Hang Them on Hangars
  • Put Them in a Wardrobe Box

Your Valuable Items

From seasonal decorations and craftwork to artwork and antiques, your more valuable fabric items need to be protected to ensure nothing damages them. To protect these items, consider getting plastic bins where you can safely pack your sensitive fabric items. For your more valuable items, custom crating can ensure that they are securely packed to protect them from any damage during your move. 

Ensure Your Fabric Items Are Protected

With these tips in mind, you can help ensure that your fabric items are protected during your move! Remember – it’s always better to be safe than sorry. So, take the necessary precautions and pack with care! Good luck!
