When you need to relocate from state to state, your exercise equipment can be a source of a lot of stress. You may feel like it's too expensive to bring with you, and yet, still too expensive to leave behind. Some pieces cost thousands, and they can weigh hundreds of pounds. These factors can make choosing what to do with your exercise equipment difficult.
But it doesn't have to be like that. We offer freight shipping and heavy equipment transport for items of any weight or size. Most freight shipments in the U.S. are transported via truck, but some are also moved by air, container, and rail. Trucks are the most cost-effective method of moving exercise equipment. We can help.
You can use freight shipping to buy, sell, or relocate any exercise equipment. Contact us to learn more about how safe, cost-effective, and convenient it can be.

Getting Your Equipment Ready to Ship
Remember, your equipment is likely to be loaded and unloaded multiple times on its way to its destination. You will need to use great care in packaging and preparing your equipment to ensure that it doesn't get broken, scratched, or dented along the way.

Before you reach out, you will want to have some basic information, such as the city of departure and destination, the dimensions, and the weight of the item you wish to ship.
If you happen to have it, check your owner's manual first. They may have given guidance as to your equipment's special handling requirements.
Disassemble your equipment as much as possible and carefully wrap the individual pieces to protect them during transit. This also means collapsing down or separating any parts such as arms, extensions, pulleys, cup holders, and loose weights. These should all be securely wrapped.
Don't make the mistake of losing the hardware to reassemble your equipment when it arrives. Gather all of the associated hardware for your equipment and package it securely together.
Remove casters or wheels if necessary and crate it all together. Add moving blankets or other padding to protect your cargo further. We will need to know the packaged weight and dimensions of your cargo once you have it packed up to ensure that we know what we are receiving. You will receive your bill of lading when you are ready to ship.
