How to Pack a Flat Screen Television

What Should I Consider When Packing a Flat Screen Television for an International Move?

When packing a flat-screen television for an international move, there are a few crucial factors to consider. Firstly, ensure you have the appropriate packaging materials like sturdy boxes, bubble wrap, and padding. It is essential to disconnect and properly secure all cables and accessories. Protect the screen by placing a foam or cardboard barrier between it and the box. Lastly, label the box as fragile and indicate which side is up. Following these packing tips for international moving will help safeguard your prized television during transit.

Protecting Your Belongings

Flat screen televisions are fragile items that need to be well protected in preparation for a long distance move. Find out how to safely pack a flat screen TV.

Packing a TV the right way

The best packaging for a flat screen TV is the original box in which it came in. It will contain the original packaging and protective pieces. If however, the original packaging is not available, there are other protective solutions. If a professional moving company is transporting your belongings, they can provide a TV packing kit. Packing kits can also be purchased independently if you’ll be doing a DIY move. Alternatively, the television can be protected with soft padding such as: bubble wrap, moving blankets, or for a more eco friendly move and to reduce packing waste, you can use things like linens, blankets, or clothing. It’s important that in addition to soft protection, there is also a hard layer protecting the television. This could be in the form of a specialized box, pieces of cardboard, or thin plywood. Make sure any spaces are filled, so the television won’t move around. Before the television is packed, unplug and remove any cables that are attached to the television. Labeling the cables is a good idea. Cleaning the television from any accumulated dust and dirt is advised before being packed. This is important if the television will be going into storage.
