What are you moving?

Moving your TV and can’t find its original box? Don’t panic! You’re not the only one who either threw away or lost the original TV box, not thinking it was that important. That’s why there’s now a quick and easy solution — just buy a new one!

With all the chaos and stress that comes with moving homes, getting a TV box for all your TVs is sometimes overlooked and forgotten. But when it comes down to it, this is an essential step in your moving checklist that you don’t want to skip.

So here’s everything you need to know about buying a TV moving box — including why you need a TV box and where to buy a TV box in South Africa.

Do You Need a TV Box When Moving?

Before delving into the where, let's address the why. Do you really need a TV box when moving? The answer is yes. While it might seem like an additional expense, you’re going to thank yourself later for investing in a TV box and protecting the safety of your entertainment centrepiece. It acts as a shield, preventing potential damage during the bumpy journey to your new home — whether it’s just down the road or a long-distance move.

While you can try to DIY it with a blanket or your own handmade TV box, that is not a risk worth taking. Some moving companies may even charge you extra for a TV box if you don’t have your own. So make the wise move — get your TV box.

Considering the cost and emotional value of your TV, a small investment in a protective TV box can save you from the headache of dealing with a damaged television upon arrival. Plus, you can use your TV box to protect and transport other items such as art, fragile items and mirrors. It may even come in handy after your move, making it worth the investment.

Best Places to Buy a TV Box for Moving

Now that we've established the significance of a TV box, let's explore the best places to find a TV box for sale in South Africa. Most of these have both in-store and online options so that you can buy your TV box and get it home in whatever way is the most convenient for you — whether it’s going to pick it out yourself or having it delivered right to your door. By comparing the TV box sizes and prices, you can find the perfect one for you, your TV and your budget.
