We are now stocking a super strong Lay-Down Wardrobe Box. Also known in the moving industry as a ‘flat robe’ or lay flat box’ it is ideal for packing garments, linens, and decorations. This flat robe moving box is much easier to use and far less expensive than the portable hanging wardrobe box. This double walled box is also designed to fit under most beds, making it a compact storage solution.
The box is wide enough for most hangers so you can quickly transfer hanging clothes straight from your closet to the box. This box is also useful for packing curtains, drapes, linen and decorations. The lay down wardrobe boxes should be kept flat and upright when moving. Use this box for packing, storage, or shipping. For weights and dimensions please click additional information.
You can typically lay 15-20 garments flat within the lay-down wardrobe box. The trick is to lay the clothes one at a time to ensure they lay out flat and crease free. However, heavy coats and jackets will take up much more space within the box. You can lay garments directly in the box with the hangers or you can remove them, this allows more space but the hangers can anchor the clothes in position within the box.
Traditional portable hanging wardrobe box is a fantastic product. However, it has become very expensive in recent years with the huge increase in cardboard prices. A retail price of €15 -€20 for a single wardrobe box is simply not feasible when moving home. These boxes are half the cost and half the size which is a major bonus when shipping abroad or putting your goods into storage where space is a premium. Another major flaw is that customers tend to overload the hanging wardrobe box which results in the rail tearing through the cardboard and falling.
We currently have a great deal in our box bundle section on 5 or 10 lay-down wardrobe boxes.
