Customer Reviews Flat Panel TV Kit

It’s the item that I ordered is all I can say about it

Deanna B.
Rating:

A bit of overkill for my 32" TV but would definitely be a good choice for a huge one.

Iris D.
Rating:

I was a little unimpressed with the boxes because 1st of all, they did not come with instructions. There is a strip of cushion to use but honestly I haven’t figured out yet how to use it. I would have liked to have instructions on how to pack my tv in them. Also, i’ve Only opened one of the boxes, but the one I did open had a bit unglued on the corner - I will have to tape it up some more when I use the boxes. Other than that, the delivery was great, it was delivered very soon after I ordered them. As for the mattress covers, I haven’t opened those up yet since I won’t be moving until the 6th or 7th of this month.

What is internal measurement of this box. I need 60x30x8

–Cathy D 7/3/2014 10:57:25 AM

Our moving supplies program manager writes: "40" tall x 36.5" wide (note: the inner box telescopes into the outer box which is also 36.5" wide) x 6" deep."

–Ronald 7/9/2014 12:21:16 PM

what is the weight limit of this box?

–julie 7/7/2014 3:02:53 PM

"Based on the construction of the Inner/Outer 350# Double Wall boxes, we recommend a maximum weight capacity of 120 lbs."

–Ronald 7/11/2014 11:55:29 AM

what does the box measure ?

–david 7/8/2014 12:59:50 PM

"40" tall x 36.5" wide (note: the inner box telescopes into the outer box which is also 36.5" wide) x 6" deep."

–Ronald 7/11/2014 11:16:39 AM

my tv measures 62" X 38", and 7 " wide. will this box work for me?

–bob 7/15/2014 4:16:07 PM

"Unfortunately no, the 7" depth is too much. The measurements of the assembled box is 40" tall x 36.5" wide (note: the inner box telescopes into the outer box which is also 36.5" wide) x 6" deep."

–Ronald 7/17/2014 8:34:33 AM

Will this box work for me to check in as luggage for my flight?

–Josh 8/30/2014 8:38:09 PM

"You will have to check the restrictions of your specific airline for luggage dimensions. We do not recommend checked baggage for a flat screen TV."

–Ronald 9/2/2014 10:54:47 AM

My 42" TV is brand new , still in the original packing and has not been unpacked from the original box measuring 42"x26"x6". I am planning to ship this overseas. Would your kit work for me as extra security during the shipping process?

–Gawk 10/22/2014 3:23:45 AM

If your TV, still in original packing will fit in our kit, our kit may "help". But, it is important to remember that our kit, "is a TV moving kit and not designed to be used for shipping via USPS, UPS, FedEx, or any other shipping carrier or method." Using our kit for the shipment you note should only be done knowing our kit is not actually designed to use for shipping.

–Ronald 10/22/2014 9:03:51 AM

Why isn't this box suitable for shipping through UPS or FedEx?

–Jessica 11/17/2014 5:03:16 AM

"The box is suitable to ship. However, when packing a very fragile item like a flat panel TV in the box, it is recommended for moving, not shipping."

–Ronald 11/19/2014 7:51:56 AM

do you have a box so that i may ship a bike

–gabriel 11/22/2014 3:36:00 PM

Sorry. No. We do not offer boxes designed for bikes. Thank you.

–Ronald 11/24/2014 8:03:39 AM

why is this $29.99 when picked up at store and $19.99 when shipped?

–dave 12/21/2014 2:35:15 PM

The retail price is $19.95 when ordered online or picked up at a UHaul company owned center. Thanks.

–Ronald 12/22/2014 9:44:50 AM

Will an item that is 43.90" x 4.20" x 24.40" fit in this box?

–Kesh 12/28/2014 11:46:12 PM

Sorry. No. An item that size will not fit. Thanks.

–Ronald 12/29/2014 8:35:01 AM

I'm confused by "Ronald's" answer on the box size. How can it be 40" x 36.5" and yet accept a tv up to 52" screen diagonally measured?

–Beth 1/21/2015 7:48:27 PM

Our moving supplies program manager writes: "The product itself, when one box is telescoped inside the other is 40" tall x 36.5" wide. When fully extended, the two boxes are 72" wide (40" tall). However, when packing a TV, we recommend overlap of the two boxes. A 52" TV (diagonal) is typically around 50" wide so it should accommodate your TV with plenty of overlap." ..... If you need more help, please call us at 1.866.277.6855

–Ronald 1/22/2015 9:04:33 AM

My TV's Measurment is 44.4" x 25.7" x 2.5". What will be the measurement of the box?

–Sanjay 1/26/2015 12:29:55 PM

"Roughly 48.4" W x 40" H x 7.5" D. Depending on how much extra packing material you use, the width might increase. No matter the size of the TV (up to 70" diagonally), the box will be 40" tall and 7.5" deep. The only dimension that changes is the width based on how wide the TV is."

–Ronald 1/28/2015 8:47:38 AM

what is the inside dimensions of this box?

–Tom 2/16/2015 11:35:42 AM

Our moving supplies program manager writes: "40" tall x 36.5" wide (note: the inner box telescopes into the outer box which is also 36.5" wide) x 6" deep."

–Joseph 2/16/2015 12:57:30 PM

I would like know the parts of your product as well as the cost of each part. On the other hand I would like to know the work breakdown structure and the associated cost of each item. How you have calculate 19.95?

–kaveh khalili 2/21/2015 1:40:01 AM

Hi Kaveh, the Flat Panel TV Kit is made up of an outer box, inner box, and four foam blocks that are hinged to create two points of protections on each side of a TV.

As far as the work breakdown structure and cost of each item goes, we are unable to answer that question due to the subject matter being proprietary information. Thank you.

–Joseph 2/25/2015 8:05:58 AM

My 55 inch TV has a stand that is more than 4 inches wide. Can I still use this box, or is there a better way?

–Tony K 3/28/2015 10:19:23 AM

The stand should be removed prior to packing the TV. Thank you!

–Joseph 3/30/2015 12:03:57 PM

what is the size of the box lenght height withd

–angelita 3/29/2015 5:24:00 PM

The Flat Panel TV Kit includes two boxes that telescope (one fits into the other).

When fully extended, the two boxes together are 73" wide x 40" tall x 6" deep. Each box is 36.5" wide x 40" tall x 6" deep. When packing a TV, we recommend 4-5" of overlap of the two boxes.

–Joseph 3/30/2015 12:20:26 PM

I need a box for a mirror frame 49"×39"×2".Do you have it? Thank you.

–Ana 4/12/2015 8:45:53 AM

Yes we do!

By using two of our Large Mirror Boxes together, they form one large box that measures 66" x 48" x 4" (measurement is without overlap).

One box telescopes into the other and then they are taped in the middle to secure them to one another.

–Joseph 4/16/2015 11:40:58 AM

we have a 55" flat screen TV... will this box work for us?

–Cristi 4/23/2015 9:33:28 AM

Yes, the kit works for flat screens up to 70" (diagonally measured).

–Joseph 4/23/2015 12:02:57 PM

Does one flat panel box hold one or two TV's?

–Dan L 4/25/2015 11:40:12 AM

The Flat Panel TV Kit will hold one TV up to 4" in depth.

–Joseph 4/27/2015 9:25:58 AM

Im a little confused, "The kit fits 32” to 70” flat panel TVs (actual screen measured diagonally)". You mention that each of the two boxes are 36.5' wide and 40' tall. These dimensions would not fit a 50"+ flat screen or am I missing something?. My tv is 60" corner to corner with 51' wide by 31' tall. will this fit? Thanks

–Damien 5/19/2015 12:30:38 PM

The kit contains two boxes. One is the inner box, one is the outer box.

They both measure 36.5" wide and 40" tall. When the inner box and outer box are used together (one telescopes into the other) their combined measurement is 73" x 40" without overlap (overlap of the boxes is strongly encouraged).

Your TV would fit with plenty of overlap of the two boxes. Thanks for asking!

–Joseph 5/22/2015 4:13:01 PM

My tv is 60x24 will the box work for that? How come I can't ship it with these boxes?

–K.Prieto 5/22/2015 5:15:40 AM

Yes, you can fit a 60" x 24" TV in the TV Kit.

If you decide to ship the TV, you should pack it with enough packing material to pad it from possible breakage and to eliminate shifting while it is handled by the shipping company.

–Joseph 5/29/2015 10:08:27 AM

What is the weight of the box? I am considering shipping my TV as checked luggage. It is 46 inch, the original box is 45x30x5.5 inch. What would be the best material to absorb shocks to put between the kit box and the original box?

–dimitar 6/2/2015 8:11:03 PM

The weight of the Flat Panel TV Kit is 10 lbs.

Furniture Pads and/or bubble would be great products for shock absorption.

–Joseph 6/29/2015 12:12:58 PM

The essential equipment needed to tow your vehicle with the 2480 tow bar will include vehicle specific base plate or bracket kit, a tow bar adapter, safety cables and a tail light wiring kit.

With safety as our top concern, U-Haul also recommends the use of a supplemental braking system for most towed vehicles. For complete vehicle specific parts and pricing, please contact your local U-Haul hitch center. Thank you!

–Joseph 6/29/2015 5:23:38 PM

I can't understand how these boxes work,my TV is 42 inches and I need to purchase a moving box for it. Can you p!ease explain in detail how to pack it or do you guys have someone who can and also does the box come with bubble wrap?

–Elana 6/6/2015 10:03:26 AM

Here is a link the assembly video.

The box does not come with bubble wrapping, however we do carry anti-static bubble!

–Joseph 7/2/2015 12:29:01 PM

Would you recommend this box for a tall mirror that is about 65" tall, 38" wide and about 4" deep?

–Mark 6/17/2015 10:21:55 AM

Mark, it looks like our Flat Panel TV Kit will be just too small for your mirror.

Good news is we carry a Large Mirror Box that should work if you buy 2 and telescope them together as soon in the pictures on the product page.

Thanks for asking!

–Joseph 6/18/2015 3:39:12 PM

I have a stained glass mosaic table that is 65" x 40" x 1.5" wide. Fully extended, the telescoping box is 73" (with no overlap). So I'd have 8" to overlap, right? My table is 40" exactly, as is the box. Will this work do you think?

–Tanya Reeves 6/20/2015 10:16:06 AM

Since your table is exactly 40", we suggest you take a look at our Large Mirror Box.

If you purchase two of these boxes, they can telescope just like the TV Kit, but you'll have more height and space for padding and protective stuff.

The boxes together measure 70" wide by 48.5" tall with 4" of overlap and a depth of 4".

–Joseph 6/29/2015 9:23:24 AM

How do you use the styrafoam that is in the box for the TV?? We are not sure how to position these with the TV

–Ron 8/30/2015 7:32:42 AM

Hey Ron, if you look at the top of this page there is a video that details exactly how to use the styrofoam inserts!

–Joseph 8/31/2015 11:05:55 AM

Hi, my airline says a checked luggage has to be 62 linear inches (L+W+H). I have a 42 inches flat panel tv, will any of your boxes work for me?

–Damion 8/30/2015 6:28:19 PM

The Flat Panel TV Kit will be too large once your TV is packed inside, as the fully telescoped size in linear inches is 82.5".

–Joseph 8/31/2015 11:06:25 AM

Hi,I have a 42 inch flat panel. If i purchase online, will you be able to ship the box assembled? Or, in order to get it assembled, i have to pick up at a nearby store?

–Damion 9/2/2015 5:15:08 PM

If the box is shipped to your home, it will come flat (unassembled). If you choose to pick up in store, it will come assembled.

–Joseph 9/3/2015 9:28:29 AM

How much does the box itself weigh?

–Ann 9/9/2015 2:04:26 PM

9.8 pounds.

Thanks for asking!

–Joseph 9/10/2015 11:51:10 AM

Hi..I have flat screen LED 50"(screen diagonally measured 50 inches). Will this box fit. If it fits I am planning to pack and take this along with me in airline as checked in luggage.

–Roy C 9/18/2015 8:32:21 AM

This box can fit a 50" TV.

–Joseph 9/18/2015 10:49:33 AM

Where do foams go on tv

–Doris Smith 9/20/2015 7:09:41 AM

Doris, I would suggest watching the video posted on this page for the easiest explanation of where the foam pieces should be placed.

That being said, the foam pieces go on the the top, bottom and sides of the TV.

–Joseph 9/21/2015 11:43:52 AM

Hi, I watched the video and understand how to place the foam corners on a TV. My question,: is more padding needed around the TV or is the box constructed such that the screen will be protected? I believe the woman in the video was placing something on the TV after the shrink wrap, but the video does not show how else to pack she packed the TV.

–Helen Spoto 9/26/2015 5:00:40 PM

To limit movement and fill space the woman in the video places a furniture pad in the box.

The boxes are double walled to they provide heavy duty protection, but it is a good idea to fill space with protective material to reduce shifting.

–Joseph 9/28/2015 11:57:07 AM

What can you tell me about the foam used in this kit? Is it a had or soft foam? Are the pieces hinged together? Is using the stretch wrap the only way to hold them on my TV?

–Larry 10/14/2015 1:16:42 PM

The foam is on the harder side and yes, the pieces are hinged. Stretch wrap is recommended but not necessary, you can fit the foam tightly to your TV using the perforated pieces in the foam.

–Joseph 10/19/2015 10:43:25 AM

Is the TV included?

–Mimbo 11/17/2015 5:01:02 PM

No, a TV is not included in the moving kit.

–Joseph 11/23/2015 5:15:40 PM

I have a 75" flat screen and a 70" will this kit fit it

–Anne o 1/17/2016 11:52:01 AM

The kit will fit up to a 70" TV.

–Joseph 1/19/2016 4:40:48 PM

I need to move the Samsung 4K 65" curved TV and was wondering whether I could use the kit for that purpose.

–G 1/23/2016 8:11:19 PM

We apologize, but at this time we do not know how the Flat Panel TV Kit works with curved TVs.

–Joseph 1/25/2016 10:10:37 AM

What is the lbs-per-square-inch burst strength of the U-Haul Flat Panel TV Kit?

–alexander.galgoci@gmail.com 1/28/2016 11:31:17 PM

We do not measure our boxes using burst strength, we use ECT. Both boxes in the Flat Panel TV Kit are double walled, 48 ECT boxes.

–Joseph 1/29/2016 10:30:33 AM

I'm confused about the depth of the item this box holds because I'm seeing different responses to what seems to be the same question. My TV screen is 5 inches deep. The box is labelled that it takes a screen that is 4 inches deep. I'm reading below that you can use this box for an item that is up to 6 inches deep. Will this box work for my screen which is 5 inches deep?

–Margot 2/1/2016 9:24:04 AM

The foam protectors and a TV up to 4" deep will take up the 6" of depth of the box.

If you do not use the included foam protectors the box can be used for something up to 6" deep. Unfortunately, a TV that is 5" deep is too large to utilize the foam protectors.

–Joseph 2/1/2016 9:52:36 AM

The end of the video features blankets but it's not quite clear... How should they be used?

–Robert G 4/27/2016 7:35:23 PM

The blankets are a suggestion to fill unused space in the box to limit shifting of the TV.

You can use U-Haul furniture pads or your own towels or bedding.

–Joseph 4/28/2016 3:06:34 PM

I have a 55" TV still in the original box that I want to pack more securely. The dimensions are 6.5 wide x 9 tall x 58.5 long Do you think I could make this box work?

–Krissy 5/2/2016 7:52:33 AM

Because your original box is 6.5" wide and our TVKIT is only 6" wide, we do not believe that this will work.

–SAVANNAH 6/10/2016 8:14:36 AM

My TV is 65" but it is curved. Will this box assembly accommodate my TV?

–Paul 7/9/2016 5:00:05 PM

We apologize Paul, but at this time we do not know how the Flat Panel TV Kit works with curved TVs.

–SAVANNAH 8/11/2016 1:55:26 PM

Will this box fit a 75in tv or no

–Pete 1/9/2017 11:46:06 PM

Hey Pete, this kit is designed for use with TV's up to 70", so we can't guarantee it will work with your 75". With such a large television it may be hard to find boxes designed specifically for it, so you may have to get creative with some furniture pads and some large boxes such as this TV kit or a Four Piece Picture/Mirror Kit. Hope this helps.

–TIMOTHY 1/10/2017 8:43:56 AM

Is the flat panel TV box kit sell for 19.95 in store or on line orders on. I was in a store and the price was 32.00.

–Ken 2/20/2017 3:50:51 PM

Hi Ken. This kit is priced at $19.95 online and in most of our corporate centers. If you visited one of our neighborhood dealers then the price may vary because as business owners they are able to set whatever price they see fit on their inventory.

–TIMOTHY 2/22/2017 9:23:38 AM

I plan to purchase the flat panel TV box already assembled. Given the size of the box, are there areas along the outside of the box that will allow me to carry it more easily upstairs. Please advise. Thank you.

–Jo 4/24/2017 11:33:45 AM

Hi, Jo. Yes, our Flat Panel TV Kit features handles for easy carrying.

–TIMOTHY 4/24/2017 3:29:36 PM

how do i use it for a 32" tv

–joe 5/13/2017 2:50:16 PM

My TV is 48" wide. Can the two boxes be telescoped to a width of 52". I see that the recommended overlap is just 4" -5" which would be too wide at 63"

–Patricia 8/8/2017 10:06:09 PM

Hi, Patricia! Yes, the boxes can be telescoped. We don't recommend telescoping wider than 67-68". I hope that is helpful!

–Savannah 8/9/2017 9:45:51 AM

Can one ship this box with a TV in it using FedEx, for example, without damage/complications?

–Brooke 9/20/2017 4:32:34 PM

Hey, Brooke! No, this box is a moving kit and it is not intended to be used for shipping. Thanks for asking!

–Savannah 9/20/2017 4:44:56 PM

Where can I pick one up a flat screen tv box today?

–Cathy 10/17/2017 2:29:59 PM

Hi, Cathy! On the product page, if you select "pick up in store," enter your zip code, and click the "Find A Store" button, you will be shown a list of locations that currently have the Flat Panel TV Kit in stock for you to pick up. I hope that is helpful!

–Savannah 10/18/2017 10:25:43 AM

Can box be modified to make the height shorter?

–Jack 10/18/2017 12:26:11 PM

Hello, Jack! We do not recommend modifying the boxes since that may lessen the protective and functional aspects of the boxes. If you have a television that is shorter than the height of the box, you can fill the extra space with furniture pads to ensure the TV does not shift while in transit. Thank you!
