Question about Sony BRAVIA KDL-V40XBR1 40 in. LCD HDTV
I would like some advice on how to best acheive a cross-country move of a 40" Sony XBR Bravia HDTV. I have the original box but not very much of the original foam packaging material. It will be placed into a full-size tractor trailer bed, along with the rest of my belongings. Specifically, I would like advice on how to best pack the TV in the box, and whether the TV should be packed vertically or horizontally. If packed horizontally, should it lay with the screen facing down or up? Any pertinent advice would be greatly appreciated!
Not to sound unreasonable, but have you considered selling it locally and buying a new one on the other end? It may sound a bit like overkill, but it beats finding out it didn't survive the trip and have to buy a new one anyway.
Never transport a LCD or Plasma laying horizontally, don't put any packing in front of the screen because if impact is applied to the box it will transmit to the fragile screen. You need that air space in front of the screen for protection. Place the screen side of the box against the outside wall of the truck. Another option would be to build a 2x4 frame and apply 1/2" plywood on top, all sides, leaving the bottom open to drop the structure over the TV box. Build the box well and you won't have any problems with transportation. Purchase high density foam to put in the TV box under the stand and on both sides of the TV (front and rear) again not covering the LCD panel, glue them to the box so it slips over the TV relatively easily. You get the idea.
Good luck with the move!

Hi, the screen on your tv is like a big sheet of glass, to lessen the amount of stress on it, transport it in the vertical position, the other things that might be a problem during transport are the internal flourescent lights which consist of thin tubes of glass. the tv should be subjected to the least amount of shock as possable, so place it on something very soft to absorb the shocks of road bumps etc

I would suggest to use foam and bubble wrap to soften the vibration to the TV.
The TV should place in a vertical position.
Good Luck with your cross-country trip.
