Safety TipsOne important thing to keep in mind is that old fitness equipment is dangerous stuff. It’s heavy. Plus, awkward and bulky. Furthermore, it’s difficult to move in the first place. You’ll have to finagle it carefully. To do that and avoid injury, you should forge a clear path.
The staggering numbers [for old fitness equipment] are huge. Imagine the stuff that’s already out there in the world. In garages and storage facilities and athletic sheds. In the bottoms of closets. Also, schoolyards and back yards and junkyards. Plus, gutters and sewer drains. No sense letting it all go to waste. Pull your smock over your head, pop on your wacky cap and get to repurposing. —Bleacher ReportAlso, when you’re actually ready to move it out of your house, be sure there are no children or pets about. Their presence will only cause problems. After all, you don’t want a kid getting in the way or Fido tripping you up. You should also have someone help you out so you lessen the risk of over straining yourself and injury, as well.
Workout Equipment Disposal in Punta GordaIf you’re ready to shed it, there are options available. Keep in mind some of these suggestions may not be viable. Here are some workout equipment disposal options you can try out:
- Sell it. If the exercise equipment is in usable condition, you should attempt to sell it locally. Keep in mind you won’t get much money in return but that’s not your ultimate goal. Your goal is to get it off your property. Advertise online, hang flyers on cork-boards, and more to let people know it’s available.
- Give it away. Another method is to forgo the whole selling attempt and instead opt to give it away with the sale of your house. Or, just spread the word it’s free to whoever will pick it up.
- Donate it. Some charities will accept used exercise equipment but it usually must be in a good condition. There are charities which sell it in thrift centers and stores who will accept such donations.
- Just junk it. Should it not be in good, usable condition, then just have a junk removal service pick it up and take it away. This way, you’ll be done with it in no time.
