Missing metal rack

Jacqueline H.

Recommends this product

I've used one for skateboards and standing lamps all rolled up in bubblewrap. It worked out really well for these items.

Sandra L.

Recommends this product

The metal rack could be a little more oval-shaped to accommodate more rack sizes.

Vicki M.

Recommends this product

Great for shirts. I would probably spend the little extra and get the full size boxes though for more flexibility.

Sarah K.

Recommends this product

We used this for men's dress shirts, so they don't wrinkle. I think I may consider getting more of these just to save time next time I move.

Wardrobe box did not come with a hanging rod. What should I do?

–Ben S 7/15/2020 12:14:28 PM

Thank you!

My small wardrobe box say’s Uhaul will buy back used wardrobe boxes. Do all locations do that and how much do you pay for each returned used box?

–Jim Gehrke 4/24/2020 4:52:58 AM

Hello, Jim! Corporate U-Haul centers do not buy back used boxes, but they do buy back unused boxes. We guarantee 100% buy-back of any unused U-Haul boxes, with receipt, at any corporate U-Haul center location nationwide. Thank you!

Does the short wardrobe have lifting holes?

–Dave 8/28/2019 1:36:27 PM

Hello, Dave! Yes, our small wardrobe boxes have perforated handles for easy lifting and carrying. I hope that is helpful!

How much does the empty box weigh?

–Dakota 8/7/2019 9:35:47 AM

Hello, Dakota! Our small wardrobe box weighs about 7-1/2 pounds including the wardrobe bar. I hope that is helpful!

–Savannah 8/7/2019 10:27:46 AM

Can you buy the rods separate?

–Roger Boles 8/6/2019 5:19:50 AM

Hi, Roger! Although we do not sell the wardrobe bars separately online, it is possible that your local U-Haul Center has spare wardrobe bars they may be willing to sell to you. We recommend calling around to see if that is the case. Thank you!

How do you put bottoms together.

–ENEDINA L CORONA 4/2/2019 8:43:10 PM

Hello, Enedina! To assemble the bottom of our small wardrobe box, fold in the shorter flaps, fold in the longer flaps, and tape the seam where the longer flaps meet. If you need visuals for how to assemble a box, please check out our article on The Right Way to Assemble a Box. I hope that is helpful!

Hi, I’ve called around to a dozen U-Haul centers in the SF Bay Area and no one has these in stock. Did you discontinue them? They said they only have the shorty boxes now.

–Sam C 2/19/2019 7:04:38 PM

Hello, Sam! Here on the product page, if you select pick up in store, you can enter your zip code and see the exact U-Haul centers that have these in stock. Here are a few of our locations that have our small wardrobe boxes in stock in San Francisco:

Something to note: at our centers, our small wardrobe box is referred to as our banded Shorty wardrobe. It is essentially the same as our standard Shorty wardrobe box, but it has plastic bands on it to keep it folded compact so it will more easily fit in your car. I hope that is helpful!

Can I buy this box at a u haul outlet store.

–Carmine B Cerbone 9/22/2018 4:05:46 PM

Hello, Carmine! Yes, our small wardrobe box is available at every U-Haul Center. You can reserve them at a center near you by selecting "pick up in store" on this product page and proceeding through the checkout process. I hope that is helpful!

how many hangers does it hold? (plastic ones)

–carolina bonilla 7/13/2018 6:02:46 PM

Hello, Carolina! Our small wardrobe box holds 2 feet of closet space. The size of the clothing on the hangers influences how many hangers can fit, so the best estimate we can give is 12-25 hangers. The best way to determine what exactly can fit is to measure out two feet of hanging space in your closet. I hope that is helpful!

–Savannah 7/16/2018 7:20:03 AM

Do the clothes boxes come with rod for hanging?

–Sally Eastwood 6/17/2018 10:22:43 AM

Hey, Sally! Yes, 1 hanging bar is included with every wardrobe box. I hope that is helpful!

–Savannah 6/18/2018 7:08:05 AM

What does banded mean? Is that the second inner piece under the front flap opening? I don't understand the term "banded".

–April Good 6/16/2018 4:21:04 PM

Hey, April! Banded means the box is folded and strapped to make the box fit more efficiently in your vehicle (see the second photo here on the product page). Thank you for asking!
