Moving a Flat Screen Television to Colorado Springs

Let's be honest. A number of items are simpler to move as opposed to others. When you imagine items which really are a pain to move, usually big, hefty things like the couch or the refrigerator come to mind. Flat screen TVs may not be necessarily weighty, however they definitely take a little special consideration in order to remain secure and unscathed while moving. Regardless of whether you're moving yourself or hiring a professional moving company in Colorado Springs to help, there are still items that you want to be aware of when moving your flat panel TV. 

Groundwork

Before you make any motions toward packing up that TV, take a handful of quick photos of the many cords and connections to ensure you have a visual blueprint when you're connecting everything back up after you reach your new residence. Subsequently, mindfully remove all wires and cables. Coil them up and fasten them with a twist tie or rubber band and pack them into a carton. Additionally, be sure to label the carton. If the TV includes a base or wall bracket, remove that also. These pieces can be loaded inside the same TV equipment carton as the cabling. Make sure and place all screws straight into baggies and yet again, label them. There is no reason to have to guess which screws go to which objects when you are reassembling everything at your destination, and considering the mayhem which generally ensues close to moving day, you shouldn't depend solely on your memory in relation to making sure all the things gets put back together as it was before. Additionally, as long as you're at it, place all remotes in your TV accessory carton, too. 

Packaging

With a little good fortune, you had moving day in your mind when you purchased your flat screen TV, and for that reason, you kept the original TV box and inserts. Having said that, should you be like most people, you did not want a substantial empty package filling your garage area or attic, so you disposed of it (ideally via recycling). When the later is the case, you can buy a carton and corner covers from the moving supply shop or perhaps from the local moving company. Make certain to get a container that is adequate to fit around the Television with a bit of excess room for cushioning. Cover the television carefully in a few moving blankets, position the corner covers on and put it in the carton. 

Hauling

The best strategy to haul your flat screen TV is to keep it vertical. In an effort to ensure that it stays in the appropriate placement within the moving truck, secure it next to a mattress or something solid, for instance a dresser or bookshelf. Make sure and keep the box of cables and accessories near by for simpler unpacking.

Once you arrive at your new home, invert the process and in no time, your flat screen TV could be all set to broadcast the hottest cartoon motion picture or big game.

And, if all this appears too mind boggling to deal with yourself, give A-1 Freeman Moving Group or maybe your local moving company in Colorado Springs a call. They will be ready to help ensure that your flat screen Television arrives at your destination unscathed.
