Moving a Flat Screen Television to Tulsa

moving a flat screen TVBy Julie DeLong, A-1 Freeman Moving Group 

Let's be honest. Some items are easier to move as opposed to others. When you consider items which can be a pain to move, usually large, hefty things like that recliner or the refrigerator come to mind. Flat screen TVs are not generally heavy, but they definitely take some special awareness to be able to stay protected and unharmed while moving. Regardless of whether you are moving yourself or working with a professional moving company in Tulsa to help, there are still specifics that you want to take note of when moving your flat panel television. 


Before you make any moves toward packing up that TV, snap a few quick pictures of the numerous wires and cables to ensure you have a visible benchmark when you're hooking everything back up after you arrive at your new residence. Next, mindfully remove all cords 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 carton. If the TV has got a base or wall bracket, remove that also. Any of these pieces could be packed in the same TV accessory carton as the cabling. Make certain and place any screws directly into baggies and once again, label them. There's no need to have to speculate which fasteners connect to which things when you are reassembling everything at your destination, and considering the mayhem which typically arises close to moving day, you shouldn't count entirely on your memory when it comes to making sure every little thing gets put together again as it had been previously. And, while you are on it, put any remotes in this box, also. 


With any kind of fortune, you had moving day on your mind when you bought your flat panel Television, and therefore, you kept the original TV carton and inserts. However, should you be like most people, you did not want a huge useless package cluttering your garage or basement, so you discarded it (preferably by way of recycling). In the event the later is the situation, you can buy a container and corner protectors from a moving materials retailer or perhaps from the local moving company. Be sure to get a carton that is adequate to fit around the Television with a bit of extra room for padding. Cover the TV meticulously in a number of moving blankets, place the corner covers on and glide it into the carton. 


The soundest approach to transport your flat panel TV is to always ensure that it stays vertical. So that you can make certain that it stays in the correct position in the moving truck, secure it next to a mattress or something that is solid, for instance a bureau or bookcase. Be sure and keep the container of cables and accessories near by for easier unpacking.

After you arrive to your new home, reverse the procedure and before you realize it, your flat panel Television will be available to broadcast the hottest super-hero flick or big game.

And, in the event all this sounds too mind boggling to take on yourself, give A-1 Freeman Moving Group or your neighborhood moving company in Tulsa a call. They will be happy to help make certain that your flat panel TV gets to your destination unscathed.

Best. Move. Ever!
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.
