Can you transport a TV laying down?
So long as the television is not a Plasma, they’re safe to travel lying down. The whole ‘can’t lay the TV down while shipping’ thing came about because of PLASMA televisions, which don’t exist anymore. Plasma’s had gas encased within a large GLASS enclosure (I.e. the panel).
How do I move a large plasma TV?
Starting from the top of the TV, wrap the center of the TV with two to three layers of bubble wrap to form a protective layer over the screen. Pad each of the TV’s corners with a piece of foam. Secure with packing tape. Spread a moving blanket out, and place the TV flat in the center with the screen side facing up.
What is the proper way to transport a flat screen TV?
Keep the TV upright. Once the TV is wrapped, slide it into the box vertically. If you have a large-screen TV, have someone help you. Always keep a flat-panel TV in the upright position during moving or storage to avoid pressure on the lightweight glass that could cause permanent damage.
