Transporting a TV

The following tips will help you to transport a TV from one place to another without getting it damaged.

  • Seek the assistance of another person to carry the TV around.
  • Know what size TV fits into vehicles of different sizes. For example, a 43-inch TV fits comfortably into a midsize car while you’ll need a full-size SUV for a 60-inch TV.
  • Keep the TV in an upright position always because the screens are fragile and may get damaged otherwise. This is why most manufacturers recommend upright transportation.
  • For flat screen TVs, consider removing the wall mount option or base as this makes the transportation process easier.
  • Cover the four corners with foam first and wrap the entire TV using plastic stretch foam. This is especially helpful if you don’t have the original packaging.

 

TV wall mount size and weight

The following tips will help you to decide on the right wall mount size for your TV based on its weight.

  • Check the wall mount box for the screen size and maximum weight that it’s capable of handling and decide on the wall mount accordingly.
  • Mount only televisions with less than 40 lbs weight on drywall.
  • Use a single stud wall mount for mounting TVs that do not exceed a weight of 80 lbs.
  • Ensure that the mounting height from the center of the TV to the wall is in accordance with the size of the TV.
  • Use a wall mounting kit from the manufacturer of your TV whenever possible.
