Just a FYI.. If you have a (PDP) Plasma Television.....it MUST be transported Vertically.......Do not put in origional box and lay it flat.

Never transport a PLASMA Television flat..... because the INTERNAL screen is extremely delicate. The slightest bowing or flexing will possibly compress the gases.....maybe cause crack in internal screen... Then you have a stage prop and not a working TV. Basically the same reason why you would never transport any "flat" glass flat. As an aside, you would also not want to expose it to freezing temperatures.....but that for those moving in the Winter from the North.

Thanks for the insight - good stuff to know! Guess I got lucky transporting it from the store to the house..............

Default I read somewhere

That you should put your step stool and small step ladder in last so you have them to help you load and unload the thing. I have noticed when we have had corporate moves they always use my 3 step step stool and step ladder and then throw them in last. I expect they used them to pack other people aft of my load in the truck because they always got lost. I am planing to use a POD or cubes also when we move, so this time hopefully none of my stuff goes missing. All info greatly appreciated.

Ok, what do you guys do with all the garage stuff? Did you also put lawn mowers, generators, weed wackers, tool chest, bigger ladders etc in with the other stuff in your POD?
