I LOVE these wardrobe boxes!! The shorty or the grand size are both fabulous. I don't particularly need to keep things on the hanger when moving, but man it is convenient when you get to unpacking! Really, I love to use these boxes to pack hangers (always annoying), which I just stuffed down around the sides and on top. Also, I have put other oddly sized items or things to be protected along the sides and bottom, and it works great (i.e posters in frame, yoga mat, lamps and lamp shades, etc). I think every move should have at least one of these!
