Hey, I'm in the process of moving and what's left is two closest full of clothes on hangers. In the past I've just pulled all the hangers off the bar and tried to lay them flat in my car, hoping that only a few items would have to go to the cleaners again and that none were destroyed. Last time I managed to close a pair of nice wool pants in the back gate of my 4 runner which put a huge hole in them. I'd like to not do that again.

There has to be a better way to do it. Does anyone have any suggestions?

I saw these and considered getting some - is it worthwhile? http://www.officedepot.com/ddSKU.do?...ice%20Supplies

For reference, I'm only moving about a 10 minute drive away.

Thanks!

The wardrobe box was going to be my suggestion. I guess a couple of those would be cheaper than replacing a garment or two.

I usually put the stuff on a broomstick to make it easier to carry. Maybe you could find a way to suspend the broomstick in the back of the vehicle?

They make clothes hangers for cars. A cheap solution would be to get a tension rod like for a shower. Just span it in your car and hang.

Yeah I've used these to move, and rather than throwing them away (or storing them) I keep them together in the attic for storage of off season clothes (throw in some ceder balls if you worry about moths). They are great.

When great minds collaborate they come up with answers like this! The tension rod is a great idea!

I love SF. Thanks!
