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!

Customers Reviews

  • Thanks. I have booked the move!! Great service.

    ~ Susan Guzzo, Toronto
  • Thank you very much for contacting me about my move. Due to the urgency of planning my move, I did happen to already book with someone else who I happened to connect with a bit sooner than you. But I am really impressed with the many great quotes from high-quality movers that I received so quickly via your service, so I want you to know that I will certainly be keeping you in mind for any future moving needs for myself or my friends.
    With thanks and best regards,

  • I just used to find the most qualified moving companies in my area.
    I actually called some of the companies that quoted directly and the price through was about 20% less than contacting the same mover my self. Great resource…thanks

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.
