Moving a Flat Screen Television to Colorado Springs

Let's face it. A number of items are simpler to move compared to others. When you imagine items which really are a pain to move, typically massive, bulky stuff like that recliner or the fridge spring to mind. Flat screen TVs aren't necessarily weighty, however they definitely take some distinct attention to remain safe and undamaged whilst moving. Irrespective of whether you're moving yourself or hiring a professional moving company in Colorado Springs to help, there are still things that you want to be aware of if moving your flat panel TV. 


Prior to you making any motions in the direction of packing up that television, snap a few quick pictures of the various cords and cables so that you can have a visible blueprint while you are connecting everything back up when you arrive at your new residence. After that, meticulously remove all cords and cables. Coil them up and secure them with a twist tie or rubber band and pack them into a box. Additionally, make sure you label the carton. If the TV has got a base or wall bracket, remove that as well. These pieces may be loaded inside the same TV accessory box as the cables. Be sure and put all screws into baggies and yet again, label them. There is no need to have to speculate which fasteners connect to which things as you are reassembling everything at your destination, and given the mayhem that frequently arises surrounding moving day, you shouldn't depend entirely on your memory with regards to ensuring all the things gets put together again as it was previously. And, while you are on it, set all remote controls in your TV accessory box, as well. 


With a little good fortune, you had moving day in mind when you purchased your flat screen TV, and therefore, you kept the original TV carton and inserts. Having said that, if you're like many people, you did not want a huge useless box filling your garage area or basement, so you discarded it (ideally via recycling). When the later may be the case, you can buy a container and corner covers from the moving materials retailer or from the local moving company. Be sure to buy a box which is adequate to fit around the Television with some extra room for extra padding. Cover the television carefully in a few moving pads, position the corner covers on and slide it into the carton. 


The safest technique to transport your flat panel TV will be to ensure that it stays vertical. In order to ensure that it remains to be in the appropriate placement inside the moving truck, secure it beside a mattress or something that is substantial, such as a bureau or bookshelf. Make certain and keep the carton of cabling and accessories close by for quicker unpacking.

After you arrive at your new house, reverse the routine and in no time, your flat panel TV will be available to broadcast the hottest cartoon movie or big game.

And, in the event all this seems too mind boggling to handle on your own, give A-1 Freeman Moving Group or maybe your nearby moving company in Colorado Springs a call. They will be happy to help make sure that your flat panel Television reaches 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.
