How to Ship a TV
Get your TV delivered in just three easy steps!
1 | Create Your Listing
Think about your needs for the shipment, including timeframe and locations for pick up and delivery. Be ready with pictures, weight, and dimensions of the TV to be moved. Specify whether you will be packaging the TV or if you’d prefer the transporter blanket wrap or package your TV. For the highest service level, you may want to look into white glove shipping as an option. Be as detailed as possible in your listing so the service providers know what you need.
2 | Choose the Best TV Shipping Company

While a cheap shipping rate is great, you’ll want to do a little research to feel confident in your choice of transporter. As the quotes come in, talk to the shipping companies directly.

Talking to the transporters and reviewing their profiles can help you feel confident you’re choosing the best TV shipping company.

How to Insure Your TV Shipping
When you’re reviewing carrier profiles, be sure to check insurance coverage. Some TV shipping companies are prevented by their insurance providers from covering certain electronics. If the TV transporter you choose to work with is unable to insure your TV, you should check with your homeowners insurance policy or buy spot coverage for the trip.
