If you pay a moving company by the hour, most of them will be happy to help you with tasks such as connecting your TV or other electronic devices. Keep in mind that if the task involves some level of responsibility, they may not want to provide these services. People who move usually don't set up televisions or hang up pictures. However, depending on the scope of work, some moving companies may be willing to perform these functions during the move.
You should contact the moving company directly to determine if they can offer you this service. Moving professionals are experts in the art of disassembling flat screen televisions. Carriers will take a picture of all connection points before starting to remove the cables. These photos will serve as a reference to help you quickly install the TV in your new home.
If your move is considered a long-distance move (more than 100 miles or from one state to another), moving companies will charge for the service based on weight. No, most (but not all) moving companies don't connect or disconnect major appliances, such as washing machines, dryers, or refrigerators. Most moving companies that you pay by the hour will perform these types of tasks, since you already pay them by the hour. Again, some moving companies, depending on the ones you hire, also offer certain concierge services, such as the installation of utilities and cable.
If your move is considered a local move (less than 100 miles), moving companies will charge their normal hourly rates. When you move locally, the people who move you will be able to disassemble and assemble your furniture, but the move will take longer and cost you a little more. Professional carriers have the knowledge and experience necessary to ensure that your televisions arrive at your new home in perfect condition. Some moving companies, depending on the one you hire, also offer cleaning services or may hire a cleaning service to help you clean your house after everything has moved.
If you're afraid of moving the flat-screen TV on your own, it might be a good idea to hire a moving professional who can do it for you. Moving professionals will be able to place your flat screen in a safe place inside the moving truck. Professional moving companies are also equipped with all the tools necessary to separate the television from its base or from a wall mount set. Professional carriers can play a critical role in helping you ensure that your high-value items are moving properly.
So before you decide, ask yourself if the new carriers will know how to reassemble the furniture. Or should you reassemble it yourself and turn it into a project for the new home?.
