Is it possible for 2 Shorty Wardrobe boxes to be nested together to store an item longer than 34"?

–Stephen 9/7/2020 6:04:25 PM

Hello, Stephen! Rather than nesting Shorty Wardrobe boxes (which would likely be difficult), we recommend getting a taller box like our Large Wardrobe Box, which is 48" tall. Thank you!

–Savannah 9/30/2020 8:42:37 AM

What is difference between d's box and shorty wardrobe? One needs taaped. Others?

–Bobbi 4/5/2020 3:17:10 AM

Hello, Bobbi! Our small wardrobe box and our Shorty wardrobe box are very similar with some subtle differences - the assembled dimensions of the small wardrobe box are slightly larger, measuring 24" x 24" x 34" - the Shorty wardrobe box measures at 24" x 20" x 34". The small wardrobe box is also folded and banded in a compact fashion to make it easier to fit into your vehicle and also easier to carry. Both boxes require tape for assembly. I hope that is helpful!

–Savannah 4/6/2020 8:53:47 AM

–Will Perez 3/4/2020 5:06:45 PM

What’s the difference between shorty box and small box, which one is bigger?

–Silvia Oneil 11/26/2018 6:37:38 PM

Hi, Silvia! Our Small Wardrobe Box is very similar to our Shorty wardrobe box, but it happens to be slightly larger at 24” x 24” x 34” vs. the Shorty's 24” x 20” x 34” dimensions. The small wardrobe box is banded, meaning it is folded and has plastic bands to make it more compact, making it easier to fit it into a car and easier to carry. Our small wardrobe box is available to ship and to pick up in store, while the Shorty wardrobe box is only available to be picked up in-store and cannot be shipped. I hope that is helpful!

–Savannah 11/28/2018 11:11:21 AM

–Susan 9/17/2017 9:08:34 AM

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!

–Savannah 9/18/2017 10:31:07 AM

Grand wardrobe shows bar max wt 150 lbs but shows max box wt as 100 lbs > how is that possible?

–jason 9/2/2017 9:51:11 AM

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!

–Savannah 9/6/2017 5:15:09 PM

–Savannah 7/12/2017 11:34:13 AM

How do I properly fold & assemble the box at the bottom ???

–Vincent 7/2/2017 1:55:00 PM

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!

–Savannah 7/3/2017 11:33:48 AM

How many hangers with cloth fit in the box

–Loretta 2/24/2017 7:09:50 PM

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.

–TIMOTHY 2/27/2017 7:37:51 AM

Regarding the Shorty wardrobe box. The box comes flat. When you go to assemble the box, is tape required to assemble it?

–John 4/13/2016 11:10:02 AM

Yes, you will want tape to fully close the box, as the top portion has a large perforated opening in the front.

–Joseph 4/21/2016 2:57:09 PM

–Janice Freeman 5/18/2015 7:35:57 PM

You can fit 2 feet of closet width in both the Shorty Wardrobe Box and the Grand Wardrobe Box.

The Shorty is best for shirts and jackets and the Grand is best for dresses or long coats.

–Joseph 5/22/2015 4:17:40 PM

–Monica 5/15/2015 6:12:02 AM

How many clothes can it hold

–Kim 12/2/2014 11:40:23 PM

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.

–Ronald 12/3/2014 9:53:58 AM

What is the difference (besides measurements) between the shorty and EZ wardrobe boxes?

–Katy 11/8/2014 10:46:23 AM

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."

–Ronald 11/10/2014 12:43:06 PM

–Ronald 7/14/2014 10:27:01 AM

which number is the hanger length?

–Barbara 5/23/2014 8:29:19 AM

The length of the hanger bar is 24"

–Ronald 5/23/2014 8:33:45 AM

what is the width of the bar and how many shirts could fit.

–s.siu 5/3/2014 6:45:45 PM

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.

–Ronald 5/5/2014 10:40:19 AM

Are there wardrobe boxes than the "shorty"

–Ronald 4/17/2014 11:55:44 AM

Approximately how many pants, blouses, etc. will fit in a box?

–Sandy 2/22/2014 11:48:55 AM

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 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.

–Ronald 2/28/2014 9:08:28 AM

What is the shipping weight of the wardrobe box?

–April 2/18/2014 1:41:53 PM

–Stephen 1/20/2014 8:56:38 AM

How do you determine how many you need?

–Megan Woods 12/15/2013 4:27:33 PM

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.

–Ronald 12/17/2013 8:11:08 AM

What happens if I buy one of these boxes and the wardrobe bar is not included?

–Shelley 11/7/2013 8:02:13 AM
