What to Do With Old Exercise Equipment

Paul's Rubbish

Everyone loves keeping fit as it helps with a lot of health issues. One of the ways of staying fit is exercising. You may want to do exercises but all you have is that old exercise equipment. The first idea that pops up in your mind is getting rid of them before acquiring new ones. So the question now is, how do you get rid of old exercise equipment?

If this has been troubling you for some time now, you should not be worried anymore. We will dig deeper on what you can do with old exercise equipment.

  • Selling

One of the best ways of getting rid of old exercise equipment is by selling it. New exercise equipment is very expensive. That is why some people prefer buying second-hand ones, which are a bit cheaper. You can connect with clients by listing the items on Craigslist. There you can exchange contacts and plan on making the sale.

You can also hold a garage sale. This will give you access to a very wide market. This is because people from all over may come to check out the sale and pick a thing or two. Many things come into play when having a garage sale. But one of the most important things you should have in mind is a “proper” location. Where you have a garage sales determines whether or not it will become successful. Male sure you choose a place where there is a lot of traffic, both on foot and vehicle.

  • Haul The Old Exercise Equipment

In some instances, you may have exercise equipment that is broken beyond repair. If you are in possession of such equipment, the best thing to do is to haul it away. Hauling is the process of getting rid of an item by using a junk removal company. A junk removal company can find ways of making it more useful. One of the ways is by breaking it to achieve scrap metal, which has value. The junk removal company can also take the equipment to a recycling centre.

  • Donating

Local community centres are always welcoming to donations. If you feel that your old treadmill does not serve you anymore, donate it to the less fortunate. You can also look on the web for various high school and senior centres around you. You can then confirm if they would be willing to take your equipment. When donating, make sure that the device is still working so that it serves the needs of the next user. On top of getting rid of an item, it goes a long way in making a positive change in society.

  • Giving It Away

One person’s trash is another person’s treasure. What you might think is useless to you might actually help someone else. A lot of people may have trouble with how to give out items. Well, if you are one of them, you can start by signing up on Nextdoor. Nextdoor is a great online service that allows you to give out items for free. Once you post the item, an interested party will contact you. From there you can make the necessary arrangements.

If you do not like giving away items online, you can try the old-fashioned way. This involves placing the old equipment on your curb and place a “FREE” sign. Anyone who wishes to collect the item can just pick it up and go. This helps you save a lot of time and effort. Furthermore, it is a very effective method.

Conclusion

Getting rid of old exercise equipment is not a straightforward thing. The process is a lot simpler when you have a few ideas on how to do it. One of the ways of getting rid of old exercise equipment is donating it. You can also give it away through Nextdoor or Craigslist. Selling the equipment is also an option if it is still in good condition.

Paul did a splendid job with cleaning out our backyard. We had old fridges, computers, microwaves, timber flooring and heaps of other junk left over from our house renovation. Paul was quick to provide advice and how much it’d cost to get everything cleaned up. He arrived at a time which suited us best and left absolutely no rubbish behind. I can not stress how happy we are now that our family home is junk-free! Thank you!

David T, Maroubra, Household Rubbish Removal

You guys are great, I’ll happily recommend you. I just wished I had found you sooner. I felt your price was a little too low when you quoted… so I didn’t think you would do such a good job… well done for proving me wrong.

Paul, sensational job as always, love how easy you make it look. Definitely won’t hesitate in calling you again should either my family or friends need rubbish removed. Thanks again!

Simon R, Bondi, Garden Clean-Up

Dear Paul, My husband told me what a great job you did in the kitchen, I got home and found every bit of our demolished kitchen removed and I just wanted to write and say thank you for doing it so quickly, thoroughly and for cleaning up afterwards as well. I would have no hesitation in recommending you. We both felt your price was very reasonable too. Many thanks.
