Let's face it. Some belongings are simpler to move as opposed to others. If you consider things that are really a pain to move, typically large, cumbersome items like the recliner or the fridge spring to mind. Flat screen Televisions may not be generally heavy, however they do take some distinct attention in order to remain protected and unscathed whilst moving. Irrespective of if you're moving yourself or getting a professional moving company in Tulsa and Oklahoma City to help, there are still specifics that you need to take note of if moving your flat panel TV. 


Before you make any movements in the direction of packing up that television, take a few quick pictures of the many cords and cables to ensure you have a visual benchmark while you are connecting everything back up after you arrive at your new residence. Next, mindfully remove all wires and cables. Coil them up and fasten them with a twist tie or rubber band and pack them into a carton. As well, make sure you label the box. If the television includes a base or wall bracket, remove that also. These particular things may be loaded inside the same TV equipment carton as the cables. Be sure and put any screws directly into baggies and again, label them. There's no need to have to speculate which fasteners connect to which objects once you are reassembling all the things at the destination, and considering the craziness that generally arises around moving day, you shouldn't rely entirely on your recollection when it comes to making sure every little thing gets put back together as it had been previously. Additionally, as long as you're on it, set any remote controls in your TV accessory box, also. 


With any kind of fortune, you had moving day on your mind whenever you purchased your flat screen Television, and for that reason, you stored the original TV box and inserts. Nevertheless, should you be like most individuals, you did not want a huge useless box filling up your garage area or attic, so you discarded it (preferably by way of recycling). If the later is the case, you can purchase a container and corner guards from a moving supplies retailer as well as from the local moving company. Make certain to buy a container which is big enough to fit around the TV with a bit of spare space for padding. Cover the TV carefully in a number of moving blankets, put the corner covers on and glide it inside the carton. 


The best strategy to transport your flat panel TV will be to ensure that it stays vertical. So that you can make sure that it stays in the proper placement inside the moving truck, secure it beside a mattress or something that is substantial, for instance a chest of drawers or bookcase. Make sure and keep the carton of cords and components near by for easier unpacking.

When you arrive at your new home, reverse the routine and before you know it, your flat panel TV can be ready to broadcast the latest super-hero flick or big game.

And, if all of this sounds too mind boggling to handle yourself, give A-1 Freeman Moving Group or maybe your local moving company in Tulsa and Oklahoma City a call. They are glad to help ensure that your flat screen Television reaches your destination unharmed.
