The biggest, and most difficult part of moving is packing and moving bulky and heavy items we own such as a stove, washer and dryer, fridge, bed and couch. But another item we have at home that is difficult to move is a flat-screen TV. Packing and transporting a flat-screen TV needs special care not only because it's fragile but also it’s very expensive, so if you are in need of moving this item, you wouldn’t want to mess it up.This only emphasizes the benefits of hiring a man with a van or professional moving companies in Canada to help you relocate to ensure that your flatscreen tv will be safely moved to its new home. However, if you are planning to move your TV on your own, we have some valuable tips that will help transport your flat screen tv safely without any problems.
Secure a box for your TV
Expert furniture movers or even your tv manufacturers will tell you that the best way to pack your television is to place it inside its original box. However, if you no longer have the original packaging, your best option is to buy a special box for your TV. Make sure to select a sturdy moving box that is relatively close to your TV’s dimensions.
Disconnect power cords and cables
As you begin the packing process, start by removing all cords and other external accessories from the TV. Roll the cords together and place them in a clear ziplock bag or small container.
Pro tip: To save yourself time, later on, snap a photo of the backend of the TV so that you’ll have an easy guide to remember when it's time to reassemble it once you arrive in your new home.
Dust and clean your TV
This is an ideal time to clean your TV, especially the ventilation slots before packing it for your move. Gently wipe it with the help of a soft and dry microfiber cloth to remove dust, dirt and debris. Not only this will help keep you clean as you move your TV but also ensure that no scratches and other damage can happen while moving your TV.
Wrap and protect your TV
Before moving your flat-screen TV, cushion and wrap it in large, soft moving blankets to protect it against scratching. After that, secure loose ends with packing tape, so it doesn't slip or move while it's inside the box.
Box it up
Once your TV is wrapped and ready, carefully place it inside the box. If you see any gaps, fill the extra space using bubble wrap, packing paper or even soft linens so it won't move around while in transit.
Moving the TV
After making all the preparations to move your television, it’s now time to move it. Have an extra pair of hands so you can gently move it into the moving vehicle without the fear of dropping it.
Place the TV between two sturdy and large items like between a mattress and a sofa or other soft furniture items to ensure your TV doesn't fall. Put pads underneath to help absorb any of the shocks, then, secure the TV against the wall of the moving truck. Keep the television in its upright position, this will prevent it from being crushed underneath, which can cause the screen to crack.
