Moving a Flat Screen Television to Wichita Falls

Let's face it. Some belongings are simpler to move than others. When you consider things that are a pain to move, usually massive, hefty things like the recliner or the fridge pop into your head. Flat screen TVs may not be generally weighty, however they definitely take a little specialized awareness to stay protected and undamaged whilst moving. No matter whether you're moving yourself or getting a professional moving company in Wichita Falls to help, there are still specifics that you want to keep in mind if moving your flat panel television. 


Before you make any moves toward packing up that television, take a few quick photos of the many cords and cables so that you can have a visual guide while you are hooking everything back up once you reach your new home. Next, carefully remove all cords and cables. Coil them up and fasten them with a twist tie or rubber band and pack them in a carton. And, make sure you label the container. If the television has a base or wall bracket, remove that too. Any of these things could be loaded inside the same TV accessory carton as the cords. Make sure and put all screws directly into baggies and again, label them. There is no need to have to assume which screws go to which items as you are reassembling all the things at your destination, and considering the mayhem that generally ensues around moving day, don't depend entirely on your mind in relation to ensuring all the things gets put together as it was previously. And, as long as you're at it, place all remote controls in your TV accessory carton, as well. 


With any kind of fortune, you had moving day on your mind when you purchased your flat panel Television, and for that reason, you saved the original TV package and inserts. Having said that, should you be like most individuals, you did not want a massive empty box cluttering up your garage area or basement, so you disposed of it (hopefully by means of recycling). If the later is the situation, you can purchase a container and corner guards from a moving supply shop as well as from the local moving company. Be certain to purchase a container that is adequate to fit around the TV with a bit of spare room for padding. Wrap the TV with care in a few moving pads, put the corner covers on and slide it in the box. 


The best strategy to transport your flat panel Television will be to keep it vertical. To ensure that it stays in the correct position within the moving truck, secure it beside a mattress or something that is solid, like a bureau or bookshelf. Make certain and keep the container of cables and extras close by for easier unpacking.

When you arrive at your new residence, reverse the process and before you realize it, your flat screen TV could be available to broadcast the newest super-hero flick or big game.

And, if all of this appears extremely mind boggling to handle yourself, give A-1 Freeman Moving Group or maybe your nearby moving company in Wichita Falls a call. They are prepared to help ensure that your flat panel TV arrives at your destination unharmed.

Very pleased with the overall respect and care the men gave to my possessions. Even mailing me very quickly the only thing lost in transit. Would recommend to anyone needing a long distant move.
