How to Pack a Television for Moving, Orange Beach, Alabama

A television is a valuable and fragile item, so it’s no surprise that it’s a common casualty during a move. However, if you take the time to pack yours up properly, you can expect it to arrive at its destination in perfect condition. Here’s a look at how to prepare your television before your professional movers arrive.

The Right Way to Pack Your TV

Get It Ready

Begin by removing all cords, wires, and other devices from the television. Roll cords up with twist ties so they won’t get tangled and label them before packing them away. If the cord connects the television to another device, such as a gaming system or Blu-ray player, pack the cord with the other device so it will be easy to find when you unpack it.

If the television has a base or a backing for hanging to the wall, unscrew it. Place the screws in a bag and attach it to the base to keep the necessary parts together for reassembly. Clean the television carefully with a dry microfiber cloth to remove any dust or other debris.

Wrap & Pack It

If you have the original packaging, this is the best way to pack it. Place it back in the protective foam pieces and slide it into the box.

If you don’t have the original packaging, find a similarly sized, sturdy box to use. There should be 2-3 inches of extra space on all sides of the television inside the box. Place moving blankets or comforters inside this extra space to protect the device from damage. Tape it up securely with packing tape. Label the box “FRAGILE” and use arrows to indicate which end your professional movers should keep pointed up.
