Great products and fast service
These are great for long-haul moving but I also recommend using them for local moves, too. They can be packed from the closet in advance and left open until moving day. They're also great to keep out-of-season jackets and coats in storage.
I absolutely loved this smaller wardrobe box and packed a lot of bulky but light weight items, instead of clothes
All standing wardrobe boxes will contain a wardrobe bar. In the event that it is lost or damaged in shipping, simply notify us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll arrange a reship or arrange for a pickup near your home.
With the clothes that you plan to add to these boxes hanging in your closet, measure from the far left hanger to far right hanger. You will need one box for every 24 inches of clothing measured from left to right as they hang. As an example, if your measurement equals 96 inches, you would need four boxes to handle that amount of clothing.
The Shorty Wardrobe box is slightly larger at 24" wide as compared to the 20" EZ Wardrobe box.
The box is 8.61 lbs. empty.

The number of pieces that are hanging in the 24" distance is the approximate number that will fit in this box. I would estimate 8-10.

Hi, Lynnda! The Shorty Wardrobe Box can hold up to 80 pounds. Thank you!
Grand, Space Saver, EZ, and Laydown wardrobe boxes also available. http://www.uhaul.com/MovingSupplies/Boxes/
The width of the bar is 1.75". The length of the bar is 24.25". To determine how many shirts will fit, we would need to know how close you plan to push them together. However, if you hang the shirts in your closet at the distance apart you plan to put them in the box, you could measure them in your closet at two feet then count the number of shirts in that two foot space. You could then calculate how many boxes you will need.
The length of the hanger bar is 24"
You cannot buy just the bars online. However, you should be able to buy them from a UHaul company owned Center. Thanks. http://www.uhaul.com/Locations/
"The ECT for the Shorty Wardrobe Box is 42 lbs. The wardrobe box with the highest ECT is the Grand Wardrobe Box which has an ETC of 48 lbs."
Sorry. I'm afraid that question would have to be directed to USPS. Thanks.
These do come with the bar and are very easy to assemble. Thanks.
Hi, Joey! Whether or not this box can be brought onto an airplane would depend on the airline you are traveling with. Please contact the airline to see if the dimensions and weight of this box would fit within their guidelines. Thank you!
Our moving supplies manager writes: "Approximately 55" x 45" ..."
Our moving supplies manager writes: "The only differences from the Shorty Wardrobe box are: The EZ Wardrobe box folds together so no tape required, it is packaged together with the wardrobe bar, and when it's broken down it's dimensions are smaller than the Shorty Wardrobe box when it's broken down."
If you hang the clothes in this box using the same distance between the clothes as you do in your closest, you can measure 24" worth of clothes in your closet and then count how many different article are hanging in that 24" space. That will give you the answer to your question. Thanks.

Telia, We offer 100% buy-back of any unused U-Haul box, with receipt, at any U-Haul center nationwide.
Hi Loretta. The answer will vary depending on the type of clothes, as some clothes are thicker than others. The easiest way for you to tell would be to measure two feet of your closet space and see how much will fit in that space. The box has 2 feet of hanger space, so it will be the same.
Hi, Vincent! To properly fold and assemble the box at the bottom, fold the shorter flaps in first, and then overlap them with the longer flaps and tape them down. I hope that is helpful!
Hi, Sandy! Yes, the Shorty Wardrobe has handle cut outs. Thanks for asking!
Hello, Lisa! Yes, white plastic hangers will fit in this box. Thanks for asking!
Hi, Jason! The Grand wardrobe bar is able to handle 150 pounds of weight: this means 150 pounds of clothing can hang from the bar at once. The Grand Wardrobe box itself, however, can only hold 100 pounds at once (imagine folding 100 pounds of clothes and putting them directly into the box instead of hanging them from the bar). I hope that is helpful, Jason!
Hello, Susan! Yes, the Shorty Wardrobe box can be used for storing clothes in an attic.
Make sure to properly seal the box with tape to keep dust, dirt and debris from getting into the box. Thanks for asking!
