Protecting garments put into storage

There are many reasons why you may need to put clothing into storage, whether it is clearing out to make space for new items or packing up the possessions of a family member. When you do need to do it and the items are being stored off-site in a storage container you want to ensure they will be properly protected. The best way to do this is to use the right packing materials.

The main thing that causes damage to clothing put in storage is folding it incorrectly. Doing this could result in permanent creases, something you definitely don’t want on many garments. To avoid it the best solution is to leave items hanging up. Gravity will help them to keep their shape and this will reduce the risk of damage.

So what is the best way of keeping clothing hanging up when you put them into storage? The answer is to use garment carriers. These handy boxes come with a railing and have enough drop that clothes can hang comfortably just like they would in a wardrobe. The carriers are easy to move and everything stored in them will be protected whilst it is in storage.
