Let's be honest. A number of things are easier to move as opposed to others. When you consider things that can be a pain to move, usually large, cumbersome stuff like that couch or the refrigerator come to mind. Flat screen TVs are not generally weighty, nevertheless they do take a little specialized attention to keep safe and unscathed whilst moving. Irrespective of whether you are moving yourself or employing a professional moving company in Oklahoma City to help, there are a few specifics that you need to be aware of when moving your flat panel TV. 

Prep Work

Before you make any moves toward packing up that TV, take a couple of quick pictures of the different cords and cables so that you can have a visible guide when you are hooking everything back up after you get to your new residence. Next, carefully remove all cords and cables. Coil them up and fasten them with a twist tie or rubber band and pack them into a carton. Additionally, remember to label the box. If the TV has a base or wall bracket, remove that too. These things can be packed in the same TV accessory box as the cords. Be sure and place any screws into baggies and again, label them. There's no reason to have to speculate which screws go to which objects as you are reassembling all the things at the destination, and with the mayhem that usually ensues close to moving day, do not rely entirely on your recollection with regards to ensuring all the things gets put back together as it had been previously. Additionally, as long as you're at it, put any remotes in your TV accessory carton, also. 


With any kind of good luck, you had moving day in your thoughts whenever you purchased your flat panel Television, and thus, you preserved the original TV carton and inserts. Nevertheless, should you be like most people, you didn't want a huge empty box cluttering up your garage area or attic, so you discarded it (preferably by means of recycling). If the later is the situation, you can buy a box and corner guards from your moving materials retailer as well as from your local moving company. Be sure to purchase a box that is adequate to fit around the TV with a little extra room for padding. Wrap the television meticulously in some moving pads, put the corner covers on and put it inside the carton. 


The best way to transport your flat screen TV is to always ensure that it stays vertical. In order to make certain that it stays in the proper position inside the moving truck, secure it next to a mattress or something that is substantial, such as a dresser or bookcase. Make sure and keep the carton of cabling and extras near by for easier unpacking.

After you arrive to your new house, invert the process and in no time, your flat panel Television will be all set to broadcast the latest cartoon movie or big game.
