How To Use Uhaul TV Box
Now that, you know all about Uhaul’s TV moving boxes, its the time to learn how to use these boxes properly so that your electronics are safe during transit.
To use the kit, you will need:
- A sharp knife
Assembling the Uhaul TV moving box kit:
If you purchase or pick up boxes from a Uhaul center, they will be pre-assembled. But, if you order the kit online, you will need to assemble the box yourself. Here are the instructions on how to do that:
When you receive the kit, separate the outer box, inner box, and foam blocks. First, you’ll need to separate the outer box from the inner box. There should be four foam blocks inside the inner box. Set those aside for now.
Start assembly with the outer box. To begin assembly, start with the outer box. This will give you a good foundation for the rest of the project. Once you have the outer box in place, you can move on to the next steps.
Open the box so that it sits flat on the floor. Once you have the outer box in place, open it up so that it sits flat on the floor. This will give you a better working surface to work with.
Fold in the flaps. To secure the box, you’ll need to fold in the flaps. Start with the small flaps and move to the long flaps. When folding the long flaps, make sure the flap with the large open handhold is on the outside of the box.
Line up the handholds and secure the side flaps with tape. Once you have the flaps folded, it’s time to line up the handholds. There are two handholds on each side of the box. Make sure that they’re lined up even before you secure the side flaps with tape.
The outer box should now be put together (one side will be open). At this point, the outer box should be assembled with one side open. You can now move on to the next steps.
Now that you have the outer box assembled, it’s time to move on to the inner box.
Open up the inner box. The first thing you need to do is open up the inner box. This will give you a better working surface to work with. Then, repeat the same steps as with the outer box. Fold in the flaps and secure the handholds with tape.
When the inner box is assembled, it should be able to slide into the outer box. This will allow you to change the width of the box to perfectly fit your TV.
Make sure that the position of the handles is at the top. This will give you the best possible support for your TV during transit.
Now that you’ve assembled the boxes, it’s time to secure your TV.
Separating the foam pieces to fit your TV:
To separate the four foam pieces, fold the whole foam block in half and break the two halves away from one another, then break those sections apart once more. And you will get four solid foam pieces.
On each foam corner block, you’ll find five breakaway pieces and a crease running down the middle of the foam block. You can remove the breakaway pieces one at a time to fit over the corners of your TV.
Remove the foam piece in the very center and work your way outwards, depending on the size of the corner of your TV. You can use a sharp knife to cut away any excess foam.
Make a 90-degree angle with the piece by folding it along the crease; this will fortify your television on all sides. Use plastic wrap to prevent your corner pieces from moving.
Securing the TV
Place the foam corner pieces on your TV. After attaching the foam corners to your TV, put the TV inside the inner box. To ensure your TV doesn’t move, you can put furniture pads, towels, or other materials between the top of the TV and the box.
Now that you have the inner box and foam corners in place, it’s time to seal up the box.
Place the inner box inside the outer box. You can now place the inner box inside the outer box. Make sure that the position of the handles is at the top.
Secure the lid with tape. Once the inner box is in place, you can secure the lid with tape. Make sure that the lid is flush with the side of the box so that your TV doesn’t move during transit.
Label the box. It’s always a good idea to label the box, so you know what’s inside. You can use a permanent marker to write on the box or use labels and a label maker.
Now that you’ve packed your TV, you’re ready to move. Be sure to secure the box in the moving truck so that it doesn’t move during transit. And you’re all set!
What are some Tips while moving a TV or Monitor?
1. Choose the right size box:
First, you need to choose the right size box for your TV. If you have a small TV, you can use the small TV box. And if you have a large TV, you can use the large TV box. If you’re not sure which size to choose, you can always ask a Uhaul representative for help.
2. Pack the box securely:
Once you have the right size box, you need to pack it securely. Start by placing the foam padding at the bottom of the box. Then, place your TV on top of the padding. If you have a large TV, you may need to use two boxes. Once your TV is in the box, secure it with packing tape.
3. Use stretch wrap:
To further secure your TV during transit, you can use a stretch wrap. Stretch wrap is a plastic film that you can wrap around the box. This will help to keep the box closed and prevent your TV from moving around during transit.
4. Label the box:
Once you’ve packed the box, be sure to label it with the contents and your contact information. This will help the movers to know what’s inside the box and how to reach you if they have any questions.
Following these simple tips will help to ensure that your TV arrives safely at its destination. So, if you’re planning a move, be sure to use Uhaul’s TV moving boxes.
