As Vancouver's longest running moving company, the team at Ferguson Moving & Storage have executed countless jobs for exercise and fitness facilities. In fact, in 2008, they were responsible for moving treadmills and bikes to the Olympic Oval. Like any type of move, there's a process when it comes to relocating expensive equipment with moving parts.
First of all, when working with treadmills, it's important to understand the make and model. In addition, a standardized list of equipment is required. This includes:
- Moving straps
- Moving blankets
- Gloves with grip
- Drill or screwdriver (if disassembly is needed)
- Moving dollies (find the right one by reading this)
- Plastic wrap (to hold together foldable treadmills)
The blog then shares a basic list of questions to figure out the best way to move the treadmill. For example, is it foldable? If so, what is the best way to fold the model? Are there electrical parts that need to be protected from moisture? What's the best way to protect the rubber track from being damaged during the move?
When moving a foldable treadmill, it's best to simply follow the manufacturer's instructions to fold it down. Then get it flat, cover it up, and find a safe, immovable spot to lean it against in the moving truck. There are also instructions for moving non-foldable treadmills. The blog is also chockfull of practical advice and even shares several videos on the subject.
Although moving a treadmill is not hard, it does require special care and equipment. If DIY seems like more trouble than it's worth, consider calling a moving company.
