You can mail up to about a 30 inch depending on box size.

VI Cargo, my 47" cost about $100 including customs (which I thought was very low). I will do it again.

Consider buying the insurance on the shipment for glass. Then VI cargo will very carefully inspect the TV when it arrives in Florida and if it isn't broken will be responsible for any damages if the TV 's screen is broken while it is in their hands.

In 2006 I paid about $400 to have a 42" shipped from Atlanta to VI Cargo then to STX.

I checked into it and from Phoenix it would be 400. to ship my 42'. Then it would be here with no warranty. We decided to buy one when we get to STT so the warranty would be there with it.

It may have a warranty but how will you get it fixed? A friend of mine used this same logic and when his TV broke the store that sold it to him couldn't fix it anyway. I agree that if the markup isn't that large I'd definitely prefer buy here. I'd give them stateside price + shipping + 4% gross receipts + 5% markup but many of the local vendors are substantially higher than that. One thing though that can even it out here is that Energy Star TV's actually qualify for a rebate check from the govt now.

Kmart sells TVs - they do not fix them.

if you have a problem with a tv that you bought here, you can always call the manufacturer. we bought a phillips ( i think ) from kmart and about 6 months later had a problem, they sent us a new tv.

If you would've bought the Phillips online though and it was still within warranty (which I assume yours was) wouldn't they have sent you a new one anyway? Or did they ship it to KMart and you got it there?

I don't think you should ship a TV from UK to US. UK is PAL/SECAM format, and US is NTSC.
