TV packaging: Will you be able to carry your new TV home?

When you buy a new TV, it is likely that you will want to take it home with you, right? There is always the possibility of having your purchase delivered to your home, but most people prefer to take this large piece of machinery themselves. If so, then there are some things that you need to consider before making the trip. For example, how big is the box and will you be able to carry it from the shop?

In this post, I will provide some examples of how much a TV weighs and whether or not you would be able to carry it yourself. In addition, I will give some tips for safe transportation of your television.

Let’s say that you have decided to purchase a brand new 55 inch LED Samsung Smart TV from a physical shop. In this case, you will have to carry it yourself from the shop to your car and then from your car to your home. It’s a big job, and many people struggle with carrying their new televisions.

If you’re unsure if you’ll be able to carry it yourself or whether the box will fit in your vehicle, I did some research and gathered box measurements from a variety of brands. You could consider this as a reference to see if you can manage to carry it yourself or if you’d want it delivered.

Now things start to get more complex. When we speak of 50″ TVs, we’re talking about screen dimensions of 43.6″ (110.7 cm) by 24.5″ (62.2 cm). As a result, the box will be larger than that.

How to transport an LCD TV

  • Keep the TV upright – Although the TV is packaged with enough styrofoam to protect it from minimal impacts, it will be safer for everyone if you can transport the TV without dropping or bumping it. By keeping the TV in a vertical upright position, it is less likely to break the LCD panel inside the TV.

* Don’t remove any protective materials yet. Removing any of the protection designed for the TV only makes it necessary for you to re-apply them when you get home. Keep all packaging securely in place until your new TV has reached its final destination.

  • If possible, have another person help you carry the TV. Never try to lift more than 50 pounds alone.
  • If you need to check the contents of the box while in the shop, leave the box intact and only open up one flap of the outer wrapping.
  • Use a cloth or blanket to carry your TV; – placing it on a concrete surface, metal rack, or any other hard flooring can potentially cause damage to both surfaces. Always use a protective covering when you transport your appliances in order to prevent scratches, abrasion, and excessive pressure on the product’s casing which may lead to malfunctioning.

Top tip

If you’ve just brought a new TV home and managed to get it there on your own, the next step will most likely be to unpack it. Right? Brands have found a method to make unpacking your new TV easier and safer by utilizing such a large container.

Remember that the box can be opened by sliding the outer packaging up, as seen in the video below, instead of removing the contents from the top.

This is a considerably safer option (as well as less strain on your back).
