Advice from Your Movers: How to Clean Out Your Closet Before Moving

MoversAs movers, we realize that moving usually isn’t very much fun. However, with a little preparation, you can make a smooth transition to your next home. If you’ve been getting ready to move, but still need to clean out your closet, here are a few things we recommend doing:

  • Take everything out—Although this may seem counterproductive, taking everything out of your closet and laying out in your bedroom will make things much easier. After you have everything out of your closet, you’ll be able to get a better feel for what’s in your closet and what you should pack.
  • Make a donation pile—As movers, we recognize that moving is a great time to clear out your things and make donations. As you sort through what’s in your closet, decide what you want to donate and what you want to take with you to your new home.
  • Use the one-year rule—While you go through your clothes, it can be hard to get rid of old pieces because you never know when you might need them again. However, if you haven’t worn something in over a year, chances are you won’t ever wear it again.
