What you'll need: 
Packing Tape
Wardrobe Box
Clothes Hangers
Clear protective covers
Clothing
1: 
Pull open the box and turn upside down
2: 
Fold in two flaps opposite each other, then fold in the remaining two flaps.
3: 
Straighten the joining edges and seal with tape.
4: 
Turn the box the right way up, noting the door that opens on one panel.
5: 
Fold down the two small cut-out flaps at the top of the panels adjacent to the panel with the door.
6: 
Take the clothes rail supplied and attach, sliding the fittings over the folded-down flaps you have just created.
7: 
Fill the box with clothes as required, placing each hanger in one of the cut-out notches (this prevents the clothes moving around inside).
8: 
If supplied, slide the plastic strip over the top of the hanging rail to secure the hangers in place.
9: 
Fold down the top flaps of the box in the same fashion as the bottom flaps and secure with tape.
10: 
Close the door and secure the seam with tape.
Conclusion: 
A crease free clean way to transport clothing when moving house.
Tips: 
Don't overload the boxes or there is a chance the removal company may drop the box.
