Perfect Naples Moving and Storage Solutions

moving boxes Remove and Pack the Power Cord

The first step to prepare your TV for shipping is to remove the power cord. After detaching it, pack it away in its accessory box, or use a large Ziploc bag that’s been labeled properly.

Separate the Base and TV

If your television is mounted on a base, then you’ll need to separate both pieces. Usually, to do so, you’ll need to locate the screws – normally 2-4 of them – on the back of the base that secures the TV to it. Once the screws are removed, the TV should separate and lift right off. For the time being, leave the base to the side and focus on the TV.

Bubble Wrap the Screen for Protection

Our Naples moving and storage pros suggest you use bubble wrap for additional screen protection. To keep the wrapping place use packaging tape. In the event of a last-minute emergency where you don’t have any bubble wrap, a thick blanket will do the trick.

Box the Television

Select a new, sturdy cardboard box to ensure your television has maximum protection. Insert the TV into the box upright, adding extra bubble wrap into the empty spaces to make a snug, secure fit. Now, tape the box closed – again, don’t skimp on the tape. Lastly, label each surface of the box FRAGILE.

Pack the Accessories

Next, you can focus on proper packing and boxing of the rest of the items and accessories, such as the base, power cord, and remote. Like the TV, we suggest you wrap them using the bubble wrap as well. Box them up together, if possible, and label the container clearly.

Finally, your TV is properly packed and now ready to move!
