    After months of deliberation, I've finally taken the plunge and ordered my 32PF9986. £1937 (Thanks, John Lewis, Peterborough, for price matching with JL Glasgow :thumbsup: ).
    But.. as they JL only deliver on Saturdays to my neck of the woods, and due to the fact that I work shifts, I can't have it delivered until 5 March :(
    I'm toying with the idea of collecting it myself, but need to know the dimensions of the packaging to see if it will go in the back of my Astra (sorry :blush: ) Estate. JL have promised to get back to me within the next day or so, but I'm sure someone on the forums knows the measurements. Can anyone help?

    Ohhh, I've still got the box at home...

    it's something like 1040cm wide, 248 deep and 740 tall. These numbers aren't exact though..... and I may have misremembered (now that's not a word is it?) them.

    It's not small. You'll need someone else to help, probably.

    It will be bigger than you think it will be :D

    I do not know what the effects of transporting an LCD on its side are but for plasma it can be catastrophic - you hit a bump and the glass shatters as it cannot support its weight and cope with abnormal forces. LCD's do not have this glass panel, but there may be something else in their construction that means it is best to transport vertically.

    My 37" 9986 was carried in by the driver up 8 steps.
    The package was quite large but not too heavy.
    Must be stood upright according to my box
    THe height would be your problem depending on the size of the opening.
    Tap up a white van man-picture is superb.

    Thanks for all the prompt replies.
    I must admit, I'm worried about transporting it myself. Knowing my luck, I'll drop the smegger!
    Think I'll wait for Mr JL to deliver.
    Eighteen days, and counting............
