How to Pack Armoires for Moving

You’ll need:

  • Rope
  • Large padding or old blankets

Armoires can be great packing spaces for lightweight items like pillows, lamp shades, even hanging clothes, if you use a tight tension rod inside. If you’re going to pack a lamp shade, be sure to pad it all around with lots of lightly wadded up blank newsprint or bubble wrap.

  • Remove all the contents from the shelves. Don’t try to ship your CDs, TV, cards and games, or other loose items inside the armoire – they’ll be jostled and probably damaged.
  • If you have drawers, you can keep some items inside if they’re not too heavy. Wad up blank newsprint in the empty spaces and tape the drawers shut.
  • If you like, fill in empty spaces with lightweight items, like pillows and lamp shades (properly padded with lightly wadded up blank newsprint or bubble wrap.) Several lamp shades can be stacked together with blank newsprint in between.
  • Close and lock your doors, if possible, or tie the handles together.
  • Tie large padding or old blankets around the outside. All done!

  • Thank you for providing this service for Canadians… I’ll be sure to recommend you to all my senior friends, we are all forced to abandon our homes and move in apartments… just a fact of life, not a sad story.

    Looking forward to my move, thanks to you.

Moving Tip

  • Get rid of the junk! Get rid of anything you don’t need or want, it will make packing that much easier and save you money.The more stuff you have will increase the time and or weight of the move and will cost you more money!
  • Do not move jewelry, money, coin collections, etc. Keep these items in your possession.
