So I’m moving off to college and I have to drive about three hours. I have a curved monitor that I want to bring but I don’t know how I should go about it. I’ve thought of just placing it on top of a pillow but idk how good that will be. 

Never dealt with curved before, but I'd do it by laying the monitor on the seat, with the screen facing up & base facing forward.
If the square (or whatever shape) base is detachable I'll detach it, I only need the "pole"


Then I'll tuck the seatbelt ribbon (the waist part) between the monitor & base, then zip-tie the starting end of the ribbon so that it won't slacken. This way it should atleast prevent the monitor from sliding/launching forward. Seatbelt only automatically stops slacking if it's pulled fast & hard enough, hence the zip tying.


I probably also gonna put something soft under the left and right "wing"



But of course if you still have the box it came with, do as @Andrewtst said.

If the box still with you, put back to the box. Else put at back car seat where screen face down with somebody take care of it is better as sometimes hard break of the car may make the monitor move, even though normally won't.
