    I have heard that putting a mattress against the screen works. I am thinking that the mattress would go against the inside wall of the truck, and the screen side of the TV against the mattress.

    Please be aware, this is only something I heard said. I can't vouch for it. I haven't tried it, nor have I actually spoken to anyone who has done it this way.

    Let us know what else you find out.

    From the Penske website

    Box upright and make sure items are well padded on all sides. Tape extra layers of bubble wrap to TV and monitor screens. For console-size equipment, surround with furniture pads, and then move and load upright.

    From the Washington Movers Conference

    Third-party servicing will likely be needed before moving such items as hot tubs, large-screen TV's, and some exercise equipment.

    Hope this helps.

    Any decent mover should be able to box this up for you. Local movers had no trouble with my 56" CRT RPTV (well, other than the fact that it weighed a freakin' ton and two of the moves were upstairs in buildings without elevators) through four different moves.

    Regards,

    Joe
