Let's be honest. A number of items are easier to move than others. When you consider things that can be a pain to move, usually big, cumbersome stuff like that couch or the refrigerator spring to mind. Flat screen TVs are not necessarily weighty, nevertheless they do take a little specialized consideration in order to keep safe and unscathed whilst moving. Irrespective of whether you're moving yourself or employing a professional moving company in Austin to help, there are several specifics that you need to take note of when moving your flat panel TV. 

Prep Work

Prior to you making any moves toward packing up that TV, take a few quick pictures of the different cords and cables so that you can have a visible blueprint when you are hooking everything back up after you arrive at your new residence. Next, meticulously remove all cords and cables. Coil them up and fasten them with a twist tie or rubber band and pack them into a carton. And, be sure to label the box. If the TV has a base or wall bracket, remove that too. These items can be packed into the same TV accessory box as the cords. Be sure and place any screws into baggies and once again, label them. There's no reason to have to guess which screws go to which objects as you are reassembling all the things at the destination, and with the mayhem that commonly ensues close to moving day, don't rely entirely on your memory with regards to ensuring everything gets put back together as it had been previously. Additionally, as long as you're at it, put any remotes in this carton, as well. 


With any kind of good fortune, you had moving day in your thoughts when you bought your flat panel Television, and thus, you retained the original TV carton and inserts. Nevertheless, should you be like many people, you didn't want a huge empty box cluttering up your garage area or attic, so you discarded it (preferably by means of recycling). If the later is the case, you can buy a carton and corner guards from your moving materials retailer as well as from your local moving company. Be certain to purchase a carton that is adequate to fit around the TV with a little excess room for padding. Wrap the television with care in a few moving pads, put the corner protectors on and put it inside the box. 


The best method to transport your flat screen TV is to always ensure that it stays vertical. In order to make certain that it stays in the proper position inside the moving truck, secure it next to a mattress or something that is substantial, such as a bureau or bookcase. Make sure and keep the box of cabling and extras near by for simpler unpacking.

After you arrive to your new home, invert the process and in no time, your flat panel Television can be all set to broadcast the newest animated movie or big game.

And, in the event all this seems extremely mind boggling to handle by yourself, give A-1 Freeman Moving Group or perhaps your local moving company in Austin a call. They would be happy to help ensure that your flat screen TV gets to your destination unscathed.
