The key to moving anything with success, particularly high-end electronics, is using the appropriate packing and shipping materials. When packing a Sony Bravia for travel, you must protect its most vulnerable component – the screen. The screen, unlike the Bravia’s internal components, doesn't have a housing to prevent contact, making it susceptible anything that might dislodge or topple in the transport vehicle. Another important facet of moving a large device such as the Bravia is surface area. Packing the Bravia upright will prevent anything from dropping on the screen, and leaves only the top and side edges of television, which receive protection from packing materials, exposed.
