Moving a Flat Screen Television to Little Rock

Let's be honest. Some belongings are much easier to move than others. If you consider items that are a pain to move, typically big, cumbersome things like the reclining chair or the refrigerator come to mind. Flat screen Televisions are not necessarily weighty, however they do take a little special awareness to be able to stay secure and undamaged whilst moving. No matter if you're moving yourself or getting a professional moving company in Little Rock to help, there are still specifics that you need to take note of when moving your flat screen television. 

Prep Work

Before you make any movements toward packing up that TV, snap a couple of quick pictures of the many cords and cables to ensure you have a visible blueprint when you are hooking everything back up once you arrive at your new home. After that, carefully remove all cords and cables. Coil them up and secure them with a twist tie or rubber band and pack them into a box. And, don't forget to label the carton. If the TV has a base or wall bracket, remove that too. Any of these things could be packed in the same TV accessory carton as the cables. Make sure and place all screws directly into baggies and again, label them. There's no reason to have to speculate which fasteners go to which objects once you are reassembling all the things at your destination, and given the mania which typically arises surrounding moving day, do not rely solely on your recollection with regards to making sure everything gets put together again as it had been previously. And, while you're on it, put any remote controls in your TV accessory carton, also. 


With a little good fortune, you had moving day in mind whenever you purchased your flat panel TV, and for that reason, you preserved the original TV box and inserts. However, if you are like most individuals, you didn't want a massive empty box cluttering up your garage or basement, so you discarded it (hopefully via recycling). In the event the later is the case, you can get a carton and corner covers from a moving materials shop as well as from your local moving company. Be sure to get a box that is big enough to fit around the Television with some extra space for padding. Cover the television with care in a few moving pads, put the corner covers on and glide it inside the container. 


The soundest strategy to move your flat screen Television is to always keep it upright. To make sure that it remains in the appropriate position within the moving truck, secure it next to a mattress or something that is substantial, such as a chest of drawers or bookcase. Make certain and keep the carton of cords and components close by for easier unpacking.

After you arrive to your new home, reverse the strategy and in no time, your flat screen Television will be all set to broadcast the hottest cartoon movie or big game.

And, if perhaps all of this seems excessively mind boggling to tackle on your own, give A-1 Freeman Moving Group or your nearby moving company in Little Rock a call. They will be prepared to help make sure that your flat screen TV reaches your destination unscathed.
