How to Pack A TV Moving Box

February 9, 2023

When it comes to moving home, there are a few items which are most daunting to pack and transport – and one of these is your TV. Flat screen TVs are easy to break, and it is important to understand how to protect them throughout every stage of your move. 

Almost all home movers own a TV, some even multiple, as they provide entertainment and a way for everyone to gather. As a result, everyone will likely have to move with their TV at some point. Do you know how to best move a TV and ensure it stays damage free? We are here to help give you all the advice you need to learn how to move your valuable and fragile TV, and make a daunting task into an easy one. Read on for our recommended TV Boxes and moving tips. 

How to Pack a TV for Moving Home

No one wants to have to face replacing a TV alongside already expensive moving costs. Protect your TV, and take the stress out of moving, no matter how far or big your move may be. The screen of your flat screen TV is fragile and delicate, and can be easily cracked or scratched. The best thing you can do is be mindful, and follow our guide below: 

Step One: Unplug all cables and Properly Store Them

Before even touching your TV, the best thing you can do is remove and unplug all cables, attachments and consoles. You can velcro or otherwise attach cables to their corresponding console, or keep them all together in a bag or box. Be sure to properly pack all consoles and cords, and keep them together to make setting up at your new home as easy as possible. During this stage it is also recommended that you clean your TV.

Step Two: Prepare Your TV

At this stage, your goal is providing a protective layer to your screen. Wrapping your screen in blankets, bubble wrap or a TV pouch is the best way to prevent scratches. Even if you are using a box specially designed for moving a TV, there is still potential for scratches. We recommend adding this extra layer as a precaution. 

If you use a blanket, be sure to secure it with a rope or bungee cord. If you use bubble wrap or packing paper, use tape to keep this protective layer in place. 

Step Three: Finding the right TV Moving Box

Arguably the most important piece of the moving puzzle is finding the right box. Choosing a box that is specifically made to fit your TV can make all the difference in keeping your TV safe. At Jetbox, we sell durable, Australian made TV Moving Boxes in a number of sizes to suit your TV and your moving needs.

Step Four: Place TV Inside your Moving Truck Thoughtfully

Choose placement inside your moving truck or van carefully. Slide it into the vehicle in an upright position, and try to keep the box between other items to keep it from moving around or falling over. Do not place the TV on its side. 

Unpacking your TV

Once your TV is safely in its new home, don’t rush to unpack it and damage it after all your hard work!

Firstly, set the TV down in the upright position. Use two or more people to lift the screen out of the box, lifting from the side or top. Let the TV sit for a moment before plugging everything in and turning it on. Follow all instructions when mounting your TV to the wall. 

And you’re done!

How To Pack Your TV Box

We understand that packing TV’s without the original packaging can be a stressful task.

Every Jetbox TV will be supplied with more than enough bubble wrap to wrap any size TV!

To put your TV box together, follow these instructions:

  1. Please start by taping the bottom of the box – pre-fold the flaps to make it easier to close.

  2. Use a blanket to cover your TV before applying bubble wrap.

  3. Lay it down (if the manufacturer recommendations specify that you can) and wrap it in bubble horizontally.

  4. Then wrap again vertically ensuring the corners, front and back are covered well. Tape up the bubble so that it doesn’t come undone.

  5. You can then slide the TV into the box, make sure it fits snugly and close the box with some strong tape.

Bulky Item Delivery Terms & Conditions

Some of our products are large, heavy and bulky and require extra care or special shipping. If your order requires a forklift we will advise before delivery, and if no forklift is available upon delivery a surcharge will apply.

Bulky deliveries that require hand delivery (but no forklift) to the first floor or above and require stair or lift access will also be subject to a delivery surcharge. If you advise at checkout that your delivery is above the ground floor, we will be in touch regarding the surcharge. This surcharge is from $50 per pallet.

Over & Under Runs

Manufacturing processes require machinery to work at quite high speeds. During production, some sheets may be damaged and need to be replaced. In some instances, we cannot replace the sheets at that time and you will be met with a slightly lower Quantity than ordered. This amount will be credited to you.

In most cases though, there will be overruns, as the machinery cannot come to a complete stop in an instant – we require a gradual slow down, which will give us more cartons produced, than what are ordered. These overruns are payable by the client. And taking them also helps save on recycling, which is more sustainable and better for the Environment in the long term.

If you require EXACT Quantities, we may have to make some boxes in a different grade than ordered, to make up your order in the Exact Qty required. These requests will also Incur higher unit costs. This cannot be avoided, as we must consider the recycling processes and costs involved, in helping to reduce our carbon footprint.
