46" sets and bigger, yes for on site repair. At least Panasonic. I just think there are many more reasons to keep the original box, etc. than tossing it. Unless space is an absolute reason. Boxes for 60"+ TV's are A LOT smaller than they used to be, that's for sure. My (now sold) Sony 720p Grand Wega from 8 years ago could house a family of three!!!
