Uh, some people actually do that. Yeah, weird, I know.

@OP: check if it fits in the back seat. Or get a maxi cab.

oi vei...

your TV will probably fit the backseat of regular taxis. if it doesn't, get one of those bigger taxis that look like minivans which have bigger space in the back just for cargo.

You'll need to be quite rich to pay the baggage weight surcharges

If he is a true student then there should be no problem at least for a regular airline.

I actually put my mountain bike on the plane from Taiwan, cost nothing extra and the box was just massive, weight was around 15kg. There is a special area for fragile baggage at the airport I believe, I also brought an antique vase back too.

If you have the original packaging you should be fine! If not I would just sell it.
