Be careful when moving or transporting your TV! It has a special thin glass screen (between 1 to 3 mm thickness) on the front!

LCD, LED, or Plasma TV screens are made of special thin glass with millions of tiny electronic components (pixels) built-in! It is very hard to make, costly, and easy to crack during transportation! Please use these guidelines at your own risk. (We do not take any responsibility for the TV screen being damaged during customer transportation or by our staff helping customers move their TV as requested).

As the manufacturer recommends, you should move a TV in its original box (you should NOT use another TV box). If you don't have it, the best position for TV transportation is a standing position with someone or something holding the TV. Never grab, touch or hit your TV's screen at any time (even with a small force, it may damage! We have seen many TVs with damaged screens due to hitting the car's seat when moving or when drivers apply a brake at stop signs or road bumpers).

If you have to lay the TV down, the screen must be face up, and you must put some cushions underneath the back of the TV to make it "float" (blankets, pillows, paper towel rolls, bathroom tissue packages...) and make sure that the TV will not move during transportation

- For safety, it is recommended to have at least two people to move a TV.
- Never leave a TV in your car at freezing temperatures; this can damage your TV screen.
- Never grab, apply uneven pressure, use too much force, or bend your TV when carrying, transporting, or holding it. Rubber gloves should be used for better grip and less force.
- Drive slowly and smoothly, avoid rough roads, bumps, and potholes. It is better to have someone hold the TV during car transportation.
