TIPS FROM Best Way To Move:
Avoid waxing or oiling wooden antiques (and fine wood furniture) before moving, because some products may soften the wood,
making it vulnerable to imprinting from funiture pads.
Unplug all television sets 24 hours in advance of a move, if possible, so that they will be at room temperature on moving day.
Moving a TV set in which heat is still retained could cause internal damage.
