Tips for Packing Shoes

Your shoe collection may represent a pretty big investment in your wardrobe, and you don’t want to arrive at your new home to find your shoes crushed or disfigured, so throwing them in a box and calling it done is not an option. San Diego local moving company, Move Central, Inc. wants to help you pack your shoes the right way! Read on to find out our professional mover’s tips for packing shoes for a move.

Prevent Mold

As odd as it may sound, shoes can hold moisture, and they can mold when packed up in a moving box, if this issue is not addressed. To avoid this problem, let shoes that have been sweaty or wet air out several days before packing them. You may also put cornstarch or baby powder inside your shoes to soak up extra moisture.

Protect Shoes From Scuffing

Shoes that have a polished, smooth finish are at risk of scuffing during a move. The best way to prevent this type of damage is to wrap shoes individually and then together in pairs and put them in their original boxes. These individual shoe boxes can then be packed into a larger moving box.

To save you time, you can alternately use an over-the-door shoe organizer. Put the shoes in the organizer and roll it up carefully so shoes are not crushed, but are held securely.
