HELPFUL & IMPORTANT INFORMATION
TRANSPORTING PLASMA TELEVISIONS

Plasma (flat screen) televisions are gaining popularity among consumers. There are a number of plasma monitors/televisions available on the market which can be used for many different applications including presentations, home video and as computer monitors. Because of their extremely high value and their susceptibility to damage, proper packing and handling are top priorities.

These monitors/TVs have wide screens but can be as thin as 3.5 inches which allows for placement flexibility. Even though some are designed for wall mounting, plasma units can be extremely heavy depending on size. Plasma monitors/TVs use a plasma medium and a mixture of gases to display digital signals. These gases are contained in thousands of sealed, low pressure glass chambers. Long electrodes are also sandwiched between the glass plates, on each side of the cells or chambers.

Our recommendation is that the customer or a qualified third party service company properly prepare the plasma monitor/TV for transport. Some retailers advise customers to retain the original packaging for this purpose. If the original packaging is not available, plasma monitors/TVs should be wrapped and crated for maximum protection. Preparation for transport involves removing the unit from the wall or stand (using two or more people) and disconnecting all cables and wires. Factory service dealers recommend covering the screen with a soft cloth (to prevent scratching) and placing the unit in a Styrofoam lined crate. Formed Styrofoam (3”-4” thick) should be placed at each of the four corners, allowing the unit to be elevated. It should not be placed directly on cardboard or the wood crate bottom. Additional Styrofoam (2”-3” thick) should be placed on the screen as well as the back side of the unit. Plasma monitors/TVs should remain in an upright position at all times – they are never to be laid flat nor on a side. If the item is lying flat at the origin residence, the descriptive inventory should be noted accordingly. The customer should be asked to sign/initial such notations to acknowledge the position and condition of the piece at origin. Plasma monitors/TVs should not be exposed to rain, moisture, excessive dust, direct sunlight or extreme temperatures. While loading the shipment, keep in mind that the plasma monitor/TV must remain upright.

Leo Movers & Storage can provide crating and packing services. We can also recommend third party service companies for disconnecting and reconnecting cables and wires.
