Moving a Flat Screen Television to San Antonio

Let's be honest. Quite a few items are simpler to move than others. If you consider items that are really a pain to move, usually large, bulky things like that reclining chair or the fridge spring to mind. Flat screen TVs may not be necessarily heavy, however they do require some special consideration in order to stay safe and unharmed whilst moving. No matter if you're moving yourself or working with a professional moving company in San Antonio to help, there are still items that you want to be aware of if moving your flat screen TV. 

Prep Work

Before you make any moves on the way to packing up the television, snap a couple of quick photos of the numerous cords and cables to ensure you have a visible guide when you're connecting everything back up when you get to your new home. Next, meticulously remove all wires and cables. Coil them up and secure them with a twist tie or rubber band and pack them in a carton. As well, make sure you label the carton. If the television has a base or wall bracket, remove that too. These pieces may be loaded inside the same TV equipment carton as the cables. Make sure and put all screws in baggies and once again, label them. There's no reason to have to assume which fasteners go to which objects once you are reassembling everything at the destination, and considering the mayhem which typically arises around moving day, don't count entirely on your recollection when it comes to making sure every little thing gets put together as it had been before. Additionally, while you are at it, set any remotes in your TV accessory carton, as well. 


With a little luck, you had moving day in your mind whenever you bought your flat panel Television, and for that reason, you preserved the original TV carton and inserts. Nevertheless, if you're like most individuals, you did not want a substantial empty package cluttering up your garage area or basement, so you discarded it (preferably via recycling). In the event the later is the case, you can buy a container and corner protectors from your moving supply shop or from the local moving company. Make certain to get a container which is big enough to fit around the Television with a bit of excess space for padding. Cover the television carefully in a number of moving pads, place the corner guards on and put it inside the carton. 


The best technique to haul your flat panel Television will be to ensure that it stays vertical. So that you can be sure that it remains to be in the proper placement within the moving truck, secure it alongside a mattress or something that is sturdy, for instance a dresser or bookcase. Be sure and keep the box of cords and components within reach for quicker unpacking.

After you arrive to your new residence, invert the routine and in no time, your flat panel TV can be available to broadcast the latest animated motion picture or big game.

And, if perhaps all of this appears excessively mind boggling to handle by yourself, give A-1 Freeman Moving Group or your neighborhood moving company in San Antonio a call. They are happy to help ensure that your flat screen Television comes to your destination unscathed.

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.
