Tips For Moving A Plasma TV
Moving home is both exciting and overwhelming. There are so many different things to think about, not in the least the transportation of items that can easily break. One such item is a large plasma TV. No matter how many good moving supplies you get, such as boxes and packaging materials, this is always going to be a difficult item. Make sure you plan ahead so that things go smoothly when it comes to moving day. The following hints and tips for moving a plasma TV may also be of benefit.
First of all, before you speak to the best moving company Virginia Beach has to offer, spend some time planning ahead. Which items will go to your new residence first, and which ones will be last to go, for instance? Also, make sure you have the measurements ready. This is so that you will get the right size for the packing materials and also so that you can be assured that there will be sufficient space for it in the moving truck. Do also measure your hall and doorways in your old and new properties to make sure the plasma TV will fit safely. You must always plan how you intend to pack things during transportation. Your TV should be firmly in place, without any risk of it falling or sliding. Additionally, other items should be well clear of your screen, so it does not get scratched or damaged. Depending on the condition of your TV, you may simply need to cover it with a blanket. However, if it is new and in excellent condition, you will need a more protective box (the original box and packaging would be best).
When moving day arrives, make sure your TV is not plugged in and that all cables have been removed. This is to protect your other equipment and yourself, as there is a risk of tripping. If you are simply using a blanket, make sure there is one on the floor, on which you will place your TV. Then wrap it in and tape it into place with strong tape, giving a tight fit. If, on the other hand, you are packing it in a box, then lift the TV into it with great care. Try to always lift it using two people. Make sure the padding is in place and that all elements of the TV are properly protected. Do not, under any circumstances, put the plasma TV face down while in transport. This can cause significant damage to the unit due to the pressure placed on the components. Always leave it standing in its normal position, in other words, ensuring it is held firmly in place with other items inside the moving truck. Finally, be careful when you remove it from the truck and place it in your new home.
