Moving Your Home Gym

gym equipmentWhen preparing to move, it’s likely that you’ll come up with a plan for your furniture and appliances, but what about other large items like exercise equipment? These pieces can be heavy and are often delicately put together. Moving them yourself can be dangerous and cause damage to the fitness machines.

We recommend using a professional moving service for your treadmills, exercise bikes, squat racks, ellipticals, and more. The pros, like our team at Ramsey’s Moving Systems, are experienced in disassembling and reassembling all brands of exercise equipment. We understand that these pieces aren’t cheap, so it’s worth the investment to hire an experienced mover.

That being said, there are a few DIY tips that can make moving your home gym a bit easier.

1. Gather all manuals and instructions. These are the materials that often get lost after first use, but you might want them later.
2. Organize by container. If you saved the box your fitness machine came in, that’s great. Even if the machine doesn’t make it back into that exact box during the move, having one container per machine for different accessories and pieces can keep things organized.
3. Label weights and loose parts. It might be clear to you now which weights belong on which piece of equipment, but in a new setting things might not be so obvious. Labeling is a simple way to ensure there’s no confusion.
