    I've just ordered one of these 37" blighters through John Lewis. Unfortunately their delivery schedule is a bit inconvenient for me so I was considering collecting from the depot. Only trouble is, I have no idea how big the box will be.
    Can anyone give me an idea what sort of size packaging it comes in, so I can tell if it will fit in my car.

    Many thanks in advance

    Anton

    Huuuge!!! Don't have a box to measure but you're looking at about 100 x 70 x 150 for the 37". Bear in mind that even if you could fit that shape into the backseat/boot area, you may not be able to actually get it in with the doors, seats etc.... I got a 42" into a hatchback once, but it involved taking out the front seat and most of the rear seats, getting the plasma in, then repacking the bits of seat all around the edges!!! Couldn't get the wallmount in though :laugh:

    I picked my 42" up from John Lewis in a Mercedes ML 4x4 - we had to take EVERYTHING out of the car - seats , junk, everything and it only fit at a precarious angle like a diagonal across the whole rear.... The 37" is only a little smaller.

    These are mega sensitive , dont like travelling, and REALLY heavy(as you'll find out if you try to hoik it up onto a wall mount ) If I was ever buying another one I'd get it delivered for sure. Its non-trivial and for sure a 2 man job.

    Thanks for the replies. Looks like I'll need to get some time off work then (or take a sicky). You've put me right off the idea of collecting it myself. Oh well.

    There is one other advantage to having it delivered... if they drop it... it was them who dropped it and not you ! I also read smoewhere that they're meant to be transported vertically - never flat. (After I got mine home at 45 degree angle!).

    Thanks once again for the replies. Definitely going to have it delivered.

    My next problem is trying to locate a stand. I'm after the ST42PX20 pedestal stand, but they seem to be in rather short supply at the moment. Anyone got any ideas.

    Cheers

    Anton

    I got the TH42- PE30 a couple of weeks ago, unfortunately the supplier could not supply the pedestal stand (ST42PX20).
    I eventually got one from Powerhouse for £150, they had to get it from their warehouse but it only took 3 days.
    This particular stand does the 37 and 42 model.
    Hope this is of help to you.

    Regards

    Jim
