Moving a Flat Screen Television to Houston

Let's face it. Some belongings are easier to move as opposed to others. When you consider things that are really a pain to move, commonly massive, cumbersome things like the couch or the fridge spring to mind. Flat screen TVs aren't unusually weighty, but they do require some special awareness to stay protected and unscathed whilst moving. No matter whether you are moving yourself or employing a professional moving company in Houston to help, there are a few specifics that you want to be aware of when moving your flat screen TV. 

Preparation

Prior to you making any moves in the direction of packing up the television, take a couple of quick photos of the numerous cords and cables so that you will have a visual benchmark when you're connecting everything back up once you get to your new residence. After that, mindfully remove all wires and cables. Coil them up and secure them with a twist tie or rubber band and pack them in a carton. And, remember to label the carton. If the television has a base or wall bracket, remove that also. These items can be packed in the same TV equipment box as the cabling. Be sure and put all screws into baggies and again, label them. There's no need to have to guess which screws connect to which things when you are reassembling all the things at the destination, and with the mayhem that typically arises close to moving day, don't count entirely on your mind with regards to ensuring everything gets put together as it had been previously. Additionally, while you're on it, put any remotes in this carton, too. 

Packaging

With any kind of luck, you had moving day on your mind whenever you purchased your flat panel TV, and therefore, you retained the original TV box and inserts. Nevertheless, should you be like most individuals, you did not want a massive useless box filling your garage or basement, so you disposed of it (ideally by way of recycling). In the event the later is the situation, you can buy a carton and corner protectors from your moving supply retailer or perhaps from the local moving company. Be sure to purchase a box which is big enough to fit around the TV with a little excess space for cushioning. Cover the television thoroughly in some moving pads, position the corner protectors on and slide it in the carton. 

Moving

The safest way to move your flat panel Television will be to keep it upright. In an effort to be sure that it remains to be in the proper placement within the moving truck, secure it alongside a mattress or something substantial, such as a bureau or bookcase. Make sure and keep the box of cables and accessories within reach for simpler unpacking.

Once you arrive to your new house, reverse the procedure and in no time, your flat screen Television could be ready to broadcast the hottest animated flick or big game.

And, if perhaps all of this sounds too mind boggling to deal with on your own, give A-1 Freeman Moving Group or perhaps your nearby moving company in Houston a call. They are glad to help make sure that your flat screen Television arrives at your destination unharmed.
