Picture of Hanging Clothes Moving Box
I'm currently in the middle of packing all of my things to move (and subsequently dilly-dallying on here :D). I've got several clothes that I keep hung in my closet to keep them from getting too wrinkled before wearing (I hate ironing!!!) that I wanted to move without just piling them up into my car and letting them get wrinkled. I decided that I'd make a box that would allow me to hang all of my clothes on a rod and still have them be standing up so that they wouldn't lay on top of one another. Thus, my hanging clothes box was created!

Step 1: Assemble Supplies

What you'll need:

-box (large enough to hold the clothes you want to hang in it)
-1 hanger (minus all of the ones with clothes on them)
-marker
-rod
-saw (to cut the rod to the right length)
-packing tape
-Exacto knife

I know the Japanese have some specialised box that looks exactly like this for moving clothes around. Those crazy Asians think of everything! Haha!

Very interesting idea! I personally think it's a bit of a waste of space! A garbage bag over the clothes and/or a portable rack might be a little bit more sensible if you have a LOT of clothes slated for moving and removals.

If you're able to get this built for less than $8 and unpacked fairly quickly, it's a better choice than buying one.
If you will need to put this in storage for a while, it's probably better to buy one from U-Haul.
The moving boxes I bought at U-Haul are still in good shape after over 3 years in storage, with other boxes stacked on them.

The "moving" boxes I bought from other places have collapsed, many from there own contents testing them open.

Most of the free boxes I picked up from various stores and restaurants have dune better than most anything else, including some of my plastic tubs.
Stupid auto correct, changing my words.

Thanks for the tip! This one didn't cost anything as I already had everything laying around. Thanks again!

You can buy these boxes too at the local u-haul?

It's actually short enough that I can fit it into the back seat of my car; however, I wouldn't suggest it (nor will I try) because it will most definitely block your rearward view...

I suppose you have a van in order to get that thing standing upright in the back? I'm a grade A ironing slob... I'm actually considering installing a clothes hanger rod in the roof of my car, over the back.
