How to haul away old fitness equipment.
Do you need to get rid of used exercise equipment? While the thought of moving heavy equipment can be daunting, there are ways to make it easier. Here are some tips on hauling away your old treadmill, stationary bike or other equipment with less hassle.
Give it away for free.
Giving your old exercise equipment away for free is sometimes the easiest and fastest way to get it out of your house. Start by talking to friends, neighbors and relatives to see if they would like a used treadmill, stationary bike or other piece of exercise equipment. Or send out a post on social media. Once the word "free" is added to the offer, you might be surprised how quickly you find somebody to take your old equipment off your hands.
If you can't find a friend, neighbor or relative who's interested in your exercise equipment, you might consider posting an ad on a free bulletin board. Sites like Freecycle.org or Buynothingproject.org are dedicated to creating a sharing economy and keeping good stuff out of landfills.
