HOW TO PACK A TV FOR A MOVE?

Some objects require special attention both in packaging and during transport during the move. Materials such as glass or ceramic are, in fact, very fragile and could therefore break due to insufficient protection. One of the objects to which we must pay more attention is the TV, which over the years, with plasma technology, has become increasingly thin and therefore fragile. Here are some valuable tips on packing this very expensive product and protecting it during the move.

How to protect your TV?

A first useful tip to protect the TV is to use the original packaging. If the television is new, it happens that you still have these materials in your home. However, it is always good to add additional protective elements, such as other layers of polystyrene or corrugated cardboard or a TV bag. Television manufacturers treat and deliver these products with particular care that may be missing during the move.

If, on the other hand, you do not have the original packaging with you, then you need some other things.

REQUIRED

What you need to pack a television depends a lot on the situation. But there are certainly some elements that cannot be missing:

  • Box: The best option would be to have the original box of the television. Otherwise, try to get a box of a similar size. Finally, in extreme cases, resort to DIY and pair more boxes and adapt them;
  • Sheets of Expanded Polyethylene: They are necessary to protect the screen from scratches and bumps, especially in the case of flat and particularly delicate screens. The slabs must be at least 3 or 4 cm thick,
  • Bubble wrap: To wrap the TV;

Adhesive tape: Both the brown one from packages to close the box and some transparent (office) tape that could be useful;

  • Polystyrene supports for the corners of the TV: probably, if you still have the original box you will have them too. Otherwise, you will have to compensate perhaps with polystyrene chips;
  • Knife or scissors.

How to transport a television correctly?

Do you know how to move a television in the safest way possible? It’s not difficult, but it requires some tricks and recommendations so as not to cause damage to the screen or its internal workings.

Whatever you do, don’t keep your electronic device in the back seat of your car. Know the steps to follow to transport your TV without any inconvenience during the journey.

Unplug all cables and accessories

The first step is to disconnect and organize the external cables. In addition to the power cord, you may have half a dozen other cables that you will need to get started.

Follow these steps to organize your TV accessories:

  • Remove dust from the back of the TV so that you have a clean area to work.
  • Disconnect each device at once and label the cable with tape and marker.
  • Keep them all in one bag.

How to pack a television?

Affix polystyrene sheets at least 3-4 cm thick, using them to cover the sides of the TV. On the other hand, the corners must be repaired with pieces of cardboard cut to size. While the screen must be protected with a layer of bubble wrap. You must place the TV in a cardboard box of the right size to cover it entirely to prevent it from coming out. Even it also prevents the TV from being tossed around inside the box itself.

In the case of a cathode ray tube television – bulkier and heavier – the procedure is almost identical. The TV must be protected with bubble wrap and polystyrene, always cut to size. However, it is advisable to store the product in a wooden crate, which is more resistant and safe than a cardboard box.

What and how to pack a TV during a move?

Each object during the move requires special attention in packaging and transport. For example, we have seen how the television needs special protection, with meticulous care in the choice of materials and their arrangement. Other equally delicate objects require the same attention.

The products most at risk of breaking during transport are the so-called “fragile “: objects such as plates, glasses, tableware, and ornaments require special and very precise packaging. Therefore, it is prudent to choose containers of adequate size to contain these objects so that they don’t move too much inside the boxes themselves. After that, cover the bottom of the containers with at least two or three sheets of bubble wrap. At the same time, the plates, individually packaged, must be arranged vertically, filling the box’s volume.
