How to Pack and Move your Flat Screen TV

Share |

 

Pack your flat screen TV with U-Haul’s  Flat Panel TV Kit. This box kit provides the most protection during your move. Featuring foam cushions and adjustable sizing, this kit is specifically designed to keep your flat-screen TV from shifting during transport and decreasing the chance of damage.

1. Unplug the TV and remove the power cord

Roll up cords, wires and remotes and place in a clear bag. If your TV has a large base, you may need to remove this. Place the screws and base in a bag to keep them together. Put these aside - you can pack these in the same box or tape the the bag to the outside of the box to keep them safe.

2. Cover the flat screen TV

Use the foam pieces to protect the TV and prevent it from shifting once in the box. Place two of these on at a time and secure them using Mover's Stretch Plastic Wrap. Use this wrap to cover the entire TV to further prevent scratches. You can also use blankets, furniture pads or sheets to cover the TV.

3. Place your TV in the box

Keep the TV upright when placing in box.. In most cases, you'll need to telescope the two boxes in the flat screen TV kit to fit larger televisions. This feature allows you to fit multiple size TV's from 32’’ to 70’’.

4. Secure the TV in the box

Use blankets or other furniture pads to fill any gaps you see in between the top of the box and the TV. This will prevent the TV from shifting while packed in the box.

5. Move and store the box upright

When you load the box into a moving truck, be sure to keep it upright. We recommend storing next to your mattress, dresser or other flat and sturdy objects.
