Customers always want to know: will our movers take our fitness equipment apart? Perhaps the better question is, should movers take this equipment apart? If they are inexperienced, no. If they are a good Chester VA moving company like Mid-Atlantic Moving & Storage, then yes.
Even though movers tend to be strong guys, we aren’t necessarily fitness experts, so there’s always the possibility of reassembly mishaps if the instructions manual isn’t accessible. Even beyond that, there are financial concerns. Putting this equipment together takes a great deal of dedication, time, and concentration on behalf of the Chester VA movers. When you’re paying your local Chester VA movers by the hour per mover, is it really the best use of your money to have those Chester VA movers painstakingly take these items apart (and then put them back together)? Yes, because you wouldn’t be reading this article if you planned on doing it yourself! We are always here to help assist you in taking apart your fitness equipment anytime at Mid-Atlantic Moving & Storage.
Even though you may be willing to do it yourself, you could save yourself a lot of time and hassle if you allow your local Chester VA movers to move these particular items on your behalf.
Moving the Equipment
If we are going to move the equipment, we’d recommend folding up the equipment and preparing the moving parts such as the handles . The local
Chester VA movers will then wrap the equipment in protective moving blankets.
Note: It’s also important to keep in mind that since exercise equipment is heavy and large, it may take a good amount of extra time to move. We have to make sure that the safety of the movers and protection of your fitness equipment is taken into consideration during the move at all times.
If you have small pieces of equipment to move, i.e. hand weights, medicine balls, yoga mats, etc., we’d recommend packing them in a box. General rule of thumb, be sure to pack the heavier items in a small 1.5 cubic foot box and pack the lighter items in a 4.5 cubic foot box to ensure that your boxes are as easy to transport as possible. Hopefully you find these items to be easily packable and moveable. If not, then don’t hesitate to call on Mid-Atlantic Moving & Storage and we’ll pack your items for you. Having said that, please remember, do not over pack the boxes so they’re too heavy for the local Chester VA movers to lift.
At Mid-Atlantic Moving and Storage, we understand that each and every move is as different, unique, and never the exact same. With that in mind, we pride ourselves on being able to customize and personalize every move we handle to give you a custom moving experience, tailored to your individual needs. Whether you need your entire house moved or just a treadmill that has gotten heavier since the last time you moved, Mid-Atlantic Moving and Storage will take care of you at a surprisingly affordable rate.
