Let’s begin by first taking a look at the things you need to do before you pack and store your gym equipment.

Before you store your gym equipment

You may be thinking there is nothing hard about storing gym equipment. You take it to your garage and leave it there. However, if you do this, chances are, you may never use it again. Keeping everything in working condition is a must for safe storage. Here are some things that you need to do before packing your equipment and storing it.

Before storing gym equipment, larger exercise machines should be properly disassembled.

Disassembling gym equipment

Remember, safety first. Take a look at all of your gym equipment. Try to find the original manuals for disassembly. It is important to properly disassemble your gym equipment before finding storage. Some of the larger exercise machines may have instructions labeled on them. Most workout equipment such as treadmills can be quite heavy. To avoid damages to your floors, taking it apart is necessary. Only then can you start looking for affordable movers Brooklyn to help you find the right storage.

Clean all of your equipment

Now that you have gotten everything ready for packing and storing, you can start cleaning. Cleaning the gym equipment is another important step that should not be ignored. You never know when you might need your gym equipment again but you want it to be in good condition when you take it out of your storage. Take each part and clean it. Disinfect and wipe down every surface of your treadmills, weights, mats, and other key equipment.

Finding the right storage

If you have a few weights you will likely have an easier time storing gym equipment. You can think about ways to create additional storage space in your home for smaller gym equipment. However, if you have a lot of equipment or larger and heavier exercise machines such as treadmills and exercise bikes you have to find a good storage place. Odds are, you do not have enough space in your home for these larger machines. Let us see how you can find the right storage for these items.

Smaller gym equipment

As we have already mentioned, if you have smaller gym equipment you can think about storing it in your home. To do so properly, first find the right box and packing materials. These will protect all of your items while they are being moved around the house and also while they are stored. The essential packing supplies for smaller gym equipment such as mats, weights, etc. are the following:

  • High-quality cardboard boxes. These are a must. The last thing you want is for your box to break and drop all of your equipment on the floor potentially damaging it. Make sure you hire professional movers that offer a multitude of different moving services Brooklyn, including packing service, to help you obtain the right packing supplies.
  • Bubble wrap and packing foam. This may seem a bit excessive but where is the harm in properly protecting everything? Wrap your equipment in several layers of bubble wrap and packing foam for some extra protection.
  • Labeling materials. Here is something most people forget. Label all of your boxes for their content. This helps movers know what is inside and handle everything with extra care. Furthermore, you are going to have an easier time finding all of your equipment if your boxes are labeled.

Storing larger exercise machines

The process of storing larger exercise machines is similar to the process of storing smaller ones. When disassembled, you want to make sure each part is properly protected with the packing supplies you have acquired. However, the biggest difference is the storage space. You may not have enough space in your home or apartment for all of your gym equipment. This is where you need to start searching for public storage New York.

Renting a storage unit

This part is not easy. You want to not only find a large enough storage for all of your gym equipment but also find an affordable one. Take a look at your budget first. Then, make sure you do your research. You do not want to rent the first affordable storage you come across. You want to ensure it has enough space. Moreover, you need to be sure it is safe and protected. Chances are, you may be storing some other items alongside your gym equipment. Find professional movers who can offer you assistance in finding the right storage in Brooklyn for you.
