Fortunately, most movers will be happy to move your dressers with the clothes inside. Clothes are light, so keeping your clothing inside won’t add much weight to the dressers.
When Garrett’s Moving & Storage moves dressers, we will we shrink wrap the dresser for protection, then move it outside and into the truck.
Moving Your Dressers – A Few Tips
1) Be sure to go through each dresser drawer before your movers come, and remove any item not made of cloth, such as jewelry or boxes. These items can roll around the dresser during transport and cause damage during the move.
2) If your dresser is very heavy (think triple dressers), you should go ahead and remove your clothing as an added courtesy to your movers.
What About the Clothes in my Closet?
Fortunately, the moving your closet clothes can be just as easy as moving the clothes in your dressers. Ask your mover about renting or purchasing a wardrobe box; you can also find them on Amazon for around $15.
