HOW TO PACK

How to pack a TV for shipping

Here are some basic guidelines on how to pack and send a TV by post or courier:

  • Secure the power cord with bubble wrap.
  • Wrap the TV leg or base separately.
  • Protect the screen with bubble wrap or a thick blanket.
  • Put the TV in its original box. Otherwise, take a similar-sized box and cushion the walls with one layer of foam padding or polystyrene sheets.
  • Put the TV inside the box and place the accessories on the opposite side of the screen.
  • Fill empty spaces with packing peanuts or crumpled paper.
  • Close the box and seal it with adhesive tape.
  • You can also use warning labels such as “Fragile” or “Handle with care”.

FAQ on shipping a TV via courier locally or internationally

Is it safe to ship a TV across the country or internationally?
Yes, it is. We work with quality courier companies and never compromise when it comes to safety. Nevertheless, make sure your TV is properly packed before shipping, ideally in its original packaging, to minimise the risk of damage. If you require further assistance, contact us via chat or email and one of our logistics experts will help you find the perfect shipping service for your TV.
How much does it cost to ship a TV internationally?

What is the cheapest way to ship a TV?
The cheapest way to ship a TV is through our Standard Service, which allows you to send a regular-sized package by courier throughout Europe. Check your shipment dimensions and get the cheapest quote instantly for shipping your TV.
How do I transport a TV without a box?
You should not transport a TV without a box or proper packaging. If you do not have the original box the TV came in, you can use a slightly bigger cardboard box as long as it is sturdy and resistant. You can follow our packing tips above with your own cardboard box to make sure your TV is appropriately packed and protected for shipping.
Where can I find packaging materials for sending my TV by post?
All mentioned packaging materials can be found in stationery or hardware stores. You can use a new or used cardboard box as long as it is in good condition. Please consider the weight of the TV when selecting your packaging materials to ensure it is well protected for shipping. The cardboard box needs to be sturdy and all materials should be able to withstand the weight of the shipment.
How do I pack my TV with other belongings for moving or sending overseas?
If you are relocating, our Van Delivery service is ideal for transporting a TV with other personal items because there are less packaging and labelling requirements. You will have an entire vehicle dedicated to your shipment, with direct transport from the pick-up to the delivery address. Just make sure your TV is adequately protected so that it does not knock against other items during transit. Get an instant quote in our booking tool below when relocating within Europe.
Will my TV be insured if I send it by post or courier?
Yes, all deliveries organised through our platform already have basic insurance included in the price. The coverage may differ depending on the selected shipping service and on the type of article being shipped. For extra protection, we also offer additional insurance options with higher coverage at very low rates. To make sure your shipment is eligible for insurance, the TV must be packed by the manufacturer in the original packaging. Always keep the original invoice to serve as a proof of value. This document will be required by the courier company in case you decide to start a claim procedure for damage or loss. Bear in mind that insurance may not apply for used or second-hand electronic devices.
