How much do fitness equipment removals cost?

It's hard to determine the exact cost as the price varies with the number of services you might require. For example, it will cost more if someone is moving house as compared to moving equipment in the same house.

You might also require disassembling and reassembling with the transportation of equipment which will definitely cost more. As a ball-park figure, you could be looking at anywhere between $75 to $150 per hour. On Airtasker, fitness equipment removal jobs, including tasks like delivery of equipment and moving equipment to a new house, cost on average between $80 - $200.

What fitness equipment removals are available?

There is a whole range of services available from disassembling, removing, transportation of fitness equipment to installation.

How should I prepare fitness equipment for removal?

You will need to move all the furniture that might get in the way of accessing your fitness equipment to a different location. Also, if your equipment needs disassembling then you should clear the area around it to give the team enough room to easily do their job.

Do I need to be there when my fitness equipment is picked up for removal?

Yes, you will need to be at home to provide the team access to your property and to show them where the equipment is. However, you don't need to be there during the process of disassembling and moving your equipment. If you're unable to be there in person, anyone over the age of 18 could oversee the process.

What does a fitness equipment removal service include and not include?

Gym equipment removal services provide all the services you need to remove your fitness equipment:

Included

  • Disassembling and reassembling of equipment
  • Transportation
  • Recycling equipment (if required)

Not included

  • They are not responsible for moving furniture or items which might be in the way of transporting equipment
  • Some companies may not be able to move other items such as furniture, if that's required as well. Confirm with the company before you hire them.

Pros and cons of a fitness equipment removal

Pros:

  • Help you save time and effort
  • Assist in getting rid of your equipment by recycling or donating it
  • Help dismantle complicated and heavy equipment.

Frequently asked questions

Can I remove my fitness equipment myself or do I need to book a professional?

Yes, it's possible to remove and transport smaller equipment by yourself or with the help of your friends or family members. Just make sure the equipment you need to move will fit in your vehicle. However, for larger and heavier items it could be tricky to remove these items yourself. Larger fitness items may also be very complicated and tricky to dismantle.

Can I get my fitness equipment removed today?

Yes, there are some companies which can quickly come and finish the job on the same day. It's advisable to book them early in the day to ensure they're able to fit you in for same-day removal.

What risks are there with fitness equipment removal?

If you haven't done enough research on the services available, there's a chance you could end up picking the wrong people who can charge you more compared to market rates.
