Wardrobe boxes are specifically designed for storing clothes with a built-in metal hanging bar. Instead of folding clothes, storing them in regular boxes, you are saved from all of those hassles with wardrobe boxes. They are usually 44 ECT heavy duties boxes that can hold up about a half a standard size closet. These boxes act as a portable closet that let your clothes stayed on the hangers without getting wrinkles at ease. Once you get to your new place, it is convenient to transfer your clothes from these boxes to the new closet. You can purchase wardrobe boxes at home improvement stores in Texas, such as Home Depot.
