How to Move an LCD TV


You must use caution when moving an LCD TV, regardless of its size. If you check the manufacturer's website, it will recommend moving the TV in the box it originally came in. If you didn't keep the box, can you still safely move the TV without scratching or damaging it. You can hire a professional moving company to move it for you, or you can do it yourself with the help of someone else. You should always keep an LCD TV upright; never turn it on its side. Avoid touching the screen at all times; you may damage it or some of the pixels used to create a picture.

Things You'll Need

  • Blanket
  • Heavy duty tape
  • Unfold your blanket onto a flat surface such as a bed or the floor.

  • Place your LCD TV right-side up on top of the blanket. Do not lay the TV on its side or face side down.

  • Wrap the blanket around your LCD TV. Make sure you cover the TV completely.

  • Secure the blanket in place with heavy-duty tape to prevent the LCD TV from falling out of the blanket. You can purchase this type of tape at most retail stores. Make sure the tape does not touch the front of the TV. This may damage your LCD TV.

  • Pick the LCD TV up from its base and carry it in an upright position. Transport and store the LCD TV in an upright position.

Tips & Warnings

  • U-Haul sells moving boxes made specifically for flat-screen TVs such as LCDs. Each box comes in a kit and includes foam supports to cushion the TV during the move. They're available for purchase at most U-Haul moving locations or online.
