Transporting RTV equipment

How to organise

In the guide you will find:

The transport of RTV equipment requires caution. Often such equipment is very fragile and susceptible to damage. In this guide we provide tips to help you plan the transport of your RTV equipment and choose the right method and transport company.

Methods of transporting RTV equipment overland

Transporting RTV equipment requires care and preparation, as these devices are often fragile and easily damaged. Below are the methods of transporting RTV equipment by land:


- By car: If you are transporting RTV equipment in your own car, make sure it is well secured and does not move while you are driving. Use belts to secure larger items such as TVs or audio equipment.

- By trolley: Use a transport trolley to carry heavier items such as large TVs or audio towers.

Types of vehicles used to transport RTV equipment:

- Vans: Ideal for transporting smaller amounts of RTV equipment. They can be equipped with special shelving and safety features.

- Trucks: Used for transporting larger amounts of equipment or larger items such as TVs 65 inches and larger.

- Specialised vehicles: Some companies may have vehicles specially designed for transporting fragile electronics.

Remember that whatever the method of transport, the most important thing is to properly secure the equipment and make sure it is transported safely. Regularly check the condition of your equipment upon delivery so that you can quickly report any damage.

How to secure RTV equipment before transporting it

Securing RTV equipment before transport is crucial to its safety. Below are steps and tips on how to do this:

Assess the equipment:

- Carefully inspect the equipment to identify any sensitive or fragile items.

- Take photos of the equipment before packing to have evidence of the condition of the equipment before transport.

Equipment preparation:

- Switch off the equipment and disconnect all cables.

- Secure moving parts, such as buttons or knobs, by taping or wrapping them in bubble wrap.

- For devices with hard drives, such as computers or some televisions, make sure they are switched off to prevent damage during transport.


- Original packaging: If you have the original box and protective materials, use them. They are tailored to the shape of the device and offer the best protection.

- Bubble wrap: Wrap the equipment several times in bubble wrap, concentrating on the most fragile parts.

- Carton: Place the equipment in a carton of suitable size. If it is too large, use fillers such as polystyrene, paper or extra bubble wrap to ensure the equipment does not move around inside during transport.

- Adhesive tape: Carefully seal the carton with adhesive tape, making sure all edges are well secured.

Securing in the vehicle:

- Use straps to secure larger equipment in the vehicle and prevent it from moving.

- Avoid stacking other heavy items on top of RTV equipment.

- If you are transporting multiple appliances, make sure they are properly separated and protected from hitting each other.


- Once the equipment has been delivered, inspect it carefully for damage during transport. If you notice any damage, report it to the transport company.

Remember that properly securing your RTV equipment before transport is key to its safe delivery. Even if you use a professional transport company, make sure your appliances are properly prepared and protected.

Choosing the right transport company to transport your RTV equipment is crucial to ensure the safety and integrity of your equipment. Here are some tips and criteria to consider when choosing a transport company:

1. Experience and specialisation:
