Plasma Transport Question

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I just purchased a new plasma and want to know if I can transport it laying down in my SUV. I know that laying glass flat is a bad idea.....any thoughts? I do not have access to a truck to transport it. Thanks in advance.

You'd be taking a chance imo

Plasma makers ALWAYS say to transport in a vertical position. I would not chance breaking it. Can't you rent a truck or van?

Thanks for the information. I knew the response.....I rented a truck for my 1st....used a buddy's truck for my 2nd.....

Transporting it flat will place extra stress on the glass and if you go over a hump in the road it may shatter, bye bye plasma

I will also be moving my plasma soon (60" inch). I was planning on renting a truck and wrapping it in a down comforter all over to provide some cushion (hell maybe even 2 comforters). How have others done this without the original box?

When I moved I bought a box from uhaul that is ideal for flat screen.
