Transport it from store to house on the back of a pickup bed?


I assume this is the way most do it but was JW. We are buying a bigger TV and can't fit it in the cab of the truck.

Not really, unless you drive like crazy and hit it very hard against the pickup truck bed walls. They come packed so they can absorb/resist certain rough handling. Just secure it really good with a nice foam or sheets so it does not move while you drive.

Larger LCD's have tip meters or shock meters on the box base and some are strapped to pallets keep it on the pallet if you can since transport would be more stable as that is how the freight carriers deliver the larger ones - make sure you keep it vertical as all glass is transported vertical since stress points could break laying flat - gravity wins with heavy glass laying flat and no insurance it you lose and hit a bad bump, pothole or sudden stops.


They are well protected but not intended to be moved horizontally.

Well we wrapped a quilt around it but we layed it down horizontally. How would we know if we broke anything? Seems to work just fine. lol


I don't think it moved at all coming home... hit a few bumps but nothing to cause the box to go flying anywhere or move around in the bed.
