If you are getting ready to move your clothing boutique to a new location across town, the following packing and labeling tips will assist with keeping garments and accessories organized so that they remain damage-free while they are being transported to their final destination.
Clear Clothing Bags That Are Secured To Rolling Racks
Transfer items from each rack in your boutique onto another rack that has wheels secured to its base. Before hanging items from a rolling rack, place garments that are secured to hangers inside of clear clothing bags that seal. Each bag will make it possible for you to see what items are stored inside and will also prevent garments from being exposed to moisture while they are being moved to the new building that you will operate out of. Clothing bags will also prevent garments from becoming wrinkled.
Once all of the clothing in your boutique is hanging from a rolling rack, push the racks through your store and up a ramp that is secured to a moving truck.
Storage Lockers With Hooks
Purchase a couple heavy-duty storage lockers that have hooks attached to their interiors. Hang purses, belts, and backpacks from the hooks. For small accessories, such as jewelry or makeup, purchase storage containers that have several divided sections built into them. Place fragile items inside of clear plastic bags that seal before placing them inside of one of the compartments. To further keep items organized, secure a label to the side of each compartment that lists what is stored inside.
Compressed Bags And A Standard Sewing Basket
If you have extra fabric and sewing notions that you keep on hand to make repairs to garments, sort the items and place them in corresponding piles. Bolts of fabric can be placed in heavy-duty plastic bags that can be compressed with a miniature vacuum cleaner hose. Once a bag has had air eliminated from it, it will remain flat and material will not be at risk of shifting or getting wrinkled. Label the outside of each bag with a description of the types of fabric that are stored inside.
Place sewing notions, such as thread, needles, pins, button, and zippers in a standard sewing basket. If there are a multitude of a particular item, place them inside of a small, sealed bag before setting the bag inside of the sewing basket so that none of the materials are lost while they are being transported.
