Why Should I Buy a TV Box?

Apr 3, 2016

Picture this! You go into an electronics store and purchase your dream flat screen TV. You know, the one you’ve been wanting to buy for months. You finally bring it home and set it up and toss the large cardboard box it came in. Flash forward a few months and you find yourself having to move. You ask yourself, “How in the world am I going to move my TV without breaking it?”

Well…the solution is a Flat Panel TV Kit! Another question you may be asking is “Why should I buy a TV box?” Sure you could lay it flat on layers of blankets and pillows, but do you really want to risk damaging one of the most expensive household items you own?

Why Should I Use a TV Box

More Affordable Than a New TV

TVs are part of our everyday lives, in one way or another and it’s a luxury that many save for long periods of time to own. You’re already spending money on moving, so properly protecting your TV during your move will help ensure that you don’t have to spend more money on a new one later.

Measuring Up

The Flat Panel TV Kit is one of the many moving supplies U-Haul offers and it provides great support for your TV.

The kit will fit any 32-70” flat screen TV (measured diagonally) and that is 1-4” deep.

Each kit contains:

    • Two heavy duty, double walled telescoping boxes (1 inner box, 1 outer box) with 5 handles
  • Four foam pieces that fold in half to provide 8 points of protection around the TV (2 on the top, 2 on each side and 2 on the bottom)

The kit measures 36.5” x 6” x 40” (W x L x H) and if you purchase it at or pick it up at a U-Haul store, it will be pre-assembled for you. In addition, you want to make sure you to use a Flat Screen TV Cover before packing your TV.

Low-Maintenance Assembly

Packing it is simple! Just follow these steps:
