If you like to workout and keep yourself in good shape, you are amongst the many who have decided to have their own fitness equipment. And why not? It is way more cheap that having a gym membership and you can do everything from the comfort of your own home. However, preparing for a house relocation is not a simple task when you have to properly pack your gear. You can always leave it behind or sell it but we assure you the gyms in London are not the cheapest place. So let’s get creative and show you how to pack and prepare your fitness equipment for the big moving.
Before packing everything into a big box and ship it to your London apartment or house you need to carefully prepare all of your gear. You don’t want to transfer a box of germs to your new place, that is why you need to clean everything. Here is what you need to do:
Yoga mats are not easy to pack because they can easily get damaged. To protect the fabric and general shape of your mat:
The dumbells inside will help keep the shape of the map and won’t allow it to be flattened and damaged. If you don’t have light weights, you can use bed sheets or towels as a filling.
The big problem here is the boxes you need to use for the transportation to London. Naturally, your weights and dumbbells are heavy which means you need strong boxes. Avoid cardboard and chose plastic. You have many options, but we recommend contacting your preferred moving company and ask them for reusable plastic containers with handles. Chose the size carefully, you would want small or medium-sized boxes because they would be easier to lift. Wrap neatly everything in bubble wrap and place it in the container, be careful, your goal is to put everything in a way that will allow the even distribution of the weight. Make sure to use enough padding in order to avoid the bumping of the dumbbells in one and other. You don’t want to damage them during the move. Sometimes house relocations to London can take up to a week, so you have to make sure your gear is safely secured inside its transportation boxes.
Here is the big problem, how to move your treadmill, elliptical or stationary bike without damaging them in the process. This will be a workout on its own.
When loading your gear into the truck make sure you place some cardboard sheets under the equipment, to prevent scratches and chips.
