Do you have a move upcoming that you’re starting to get nervous about? If so, you’re not alone: Relocating is one of the most stressful activities that people can do on a regular basis.

What can make your upcoming relocation even more frustrating is the bulky, delicate, and expensive furniture or tech pieces that you might be wondering how to transport. If you’ve got exercise equipment in your home, you might be leery of moving it yourself. After all, it was likely very expensive, and it looks like it’ll be unwieldy to transport. 

That’s where experienced nationwide movers come in. At Solomon & Sons Relocation, we’re happy to put our experience to work for you so that your belongings don’t get damaged during your move. 

Moving Exercise Equipment is Hard. Here’s Why

Wondering why it might not be the best idea to move your exercise equipment by yourself? There are many reasons that you might want to leave this up to professional purveyors of moving and storage services. Here are just a few: 

  • Equipment Damage: When you move your exercise equipment, you stand the risk of damaging it. You might not have the specialized materials you need to move your equipment safely, and you also might not have the experience you need to do so successfully. 

  • Risk of Injury: Above and beyond the safety of your equipment, you need to consider your own safety! This type of equipment can be very heavy. When you move it yourself, you could drop it on your foot or find yourself in a precarious situation on the stairs. 

  • Value of Your Own Time: Moving these pieces will take a lot of stress, advance planning, and very slow, careful movements. All of this could translate to hours of your own time lost! Hiring dedicated, experienced movers to take care of this task safely in a matter of minutes will be well worth it. 

  • Risk of Using a Rental Truck: Even if you get your equipment safely into your rented truck, you’ll find that your equipment will likely shift in transit - and you might not have the insurance to take care of your belongings in the event that it does so. 

Ultimately, there are many reasons that it’s a good idea to hire the pros for this type of work - for local and long distance moves
