Moving Audio Visual Equipment

May 28th, 2012 5:09 pm by

Moving audio visual equipment can be a challenge.  However, taking some steps ahead of time will really help you when you are reinstalling your equipment in your new place.  

Before you pack your items, take your time to get color-coded labels.  The most important thing to consider is that they can adhere well.  Once you have the labels, you want to look at the lay out of your equipment.  After you have a clear understanding of the inputs and outputs and where everything goes, you want to begin to label everything.  Make sure the colors correspond to one another and that you number them in the order you want to reinstall them.

Further, with some of your equipment like flat screen televisions, you definitely want to consider crating it to provide the extra protection it needs. Your professionals at Highland will be more than happy to help you.  They will be able to advise you on what your crating needs may be.  Seriously consider their advice. 

Keep in mind that your new location may change the dynamics of your set up.  Therefore, you may need to get longer or shorter cables and different mounting equipment.  Before you go out and purchase anything, make sure to take measurements and lay things out.  If for any reason it becomes overwhelming, hire someone to help you reinstall.  It is better to have someone install your equipment than having to hire someone repair and reinstall.
