Moving to a new home has many exciting adventures in store, but it's also important to take extra care of your fabric possessions throughout the process. Nothing is worse than arriving at your new residence only to find your fabric possessions were damaged. To safeguard against any unforeseen headaches or damages, our expert residential movers at Merit Moving Systems are here to provide you with tips on how to properly protect your favorite fabrics during a household move!

Regular Clothing & Formal Wear

Homeowners with a lot of clothing and formal wear to move can be intimidated by the task at hand. But don't worry, there's no need to stress! By using large moving boxes for everyday clothes and wardrobe boxes for more formal outfits, you'll ensure your invaluable apparel is secure in transit. You can also hire a team of local or long-distance movers who will provide you all-encompassing assistance when relocating your clothing, saving time and protecting beloved items against potential damage during transport.

Sentimental & Cherished Items

If you have any beloved seasonal decorations, handmade crafts or quilts that need to travel with your household move, then protecting them is a must. Invest in secure and durable plastic containers for the ultimate safeguard against damage such as: 

  • Water
  • Tears
  • Dirt
  • And more! 

Bed Mattresses & Box Springs

When moving a mattress and box spring, securing them for safe transportation is paramount. To minimize expenses, opt for protective bags or go the extra mile with further security from cardboard boxes, a small price to pay for total peace of mind! No matter what you end up getting, you will make sure that your mattresses and box springs are properly secured. 

Home Curtains

When moving, curtains can be a tricky item to protect and bring along. If you are planning to take your curtains, you may want to consider taking some simple measures such as:

  • Giving Them Away
  • Hang Them on Hangars
  • Cover Them with Plastic

Fabric Artwork & Antiques

Secure your valuable fabric art pieces and antiques with custom crating during the moving process. Quality crafted crates provide exceptional protection for these items, ensuring their safety throughout transit to their new home. So, when you need to safely transport your artwork and antiques, make sure you consider custom crates. 

Fabric & Leather Furniture

Moving can be a stressful time - especially when it comes to your beloved furniture! To ensure that each piece arrives damage-free, there are several steps you should take beforehand. These include:

  • Hiring Professional Movers
  • Getting Moving Pads
  • Wrap Them in Plastic Shrink Wrap
