Professional Fitness Equipment Movers
You’ve invested time and money into building your home gym. When it’s time to move, it’s worth taking the same amount of care with relocating your fitness machines and equipment.
Some people may be tempted to maneuver their gym equipment themselves; however, working with professional movers who have experience with moving home gyms can reduce the risk of damage to your gym equipment and injury that could leave you benched from your next workout.
Leave it to Piece of Cake Moving & Storage to make moving your home gym a no-sweat situation. Just give us a call and let us know what home gym items you need moved and we’ll handle the heavy lifting from there.
Fitness Moving Equipment We Can Move
It’s always a good idea to check in with us to discuss what machines and equipment from your home gym you need to move. Some larger items require an additional set of hands and a review of the manufacturer’s assembly instructions.
You can breathe easy though, we are experienced at moving a wide variety of machines and equipment. It’s important that you share as much information as possible about the equipment so Piece of Cake Moving & Storage can be prepared for your home gym move.
We have experience in moving the following home gym equipment:
Air CrossFit bike
Squat and deadlift bars
BowFlex home gym
Stair stepper machine
Tonal home gym
Freestanding and hanging punching bag
Yoga mats, blocks, and straps

What’s more: we can do more than just get your heavy equipment to its new location. For instance, with some machines, it’s recommended that some parts be removed prior to relocation. We offer disassembly and assembly services just for this purpose depending on the machine and our experience. In addition to supplies, packing, and unpacking services, we’ve also got you covered when it comes to storage if you need to take a breather before you find your home gym’s next home.
How We Safely Move and Pack Your Home Gym Equipment
When it comes to moving your home gym, the warm-up phase is all the hands-on time we’ll need with you to inform and prepare for your move. This includes:
- Discussing the types of gym equipment you have first.We’ll ask you questions and get a sense of what equipment from your gym you’d like to move. Then, we can determine whether handling the machines and equipment for your specific move is within our expertise. We’ll be honest with you about whether we feel we can take care of your move safely. Assessing what your home gym relocation needs are will also allow us to arrive prepared on move day with extra padding, protection, and the right tools for the job.
- Unplugging, shutting down, and cleaning the workout gear.After we get the details of your move, it’s a great time for you to roll up your sleeves to do a bit of preparation. Make sure that any of your electronic fitness machines are unplugged and shut off. Grab your cleaning supplies and wiping down the equipment is also another item on the to-do list you can complete before any lifting occurs. Read any instructions on proper cleaning steps specific to the equipment you’re sanitizing; some materials may fade with the use of certain cleaners.
After these steps, we’ll take the baton and pick up the pace to move your gym equipment. Our expert movers will then:
- Disassemble the machines (if needed).While taking apart your machines may seem a little excessive, it’s actually recommended for many types of equipment when moving. It may be especially necessary if the machines or weights won’t fit through a typical-sized doorway or stairwell. We’ll make an inventory of any pieces removed from your equipment so all components are accounted for and ensure that disassembly won’t damage your items.
- Determine the weight of items and what will be needed to make the move safe.Our team will assess your heavy items and determine the best way to navigate it through your home. This may include using dollies or hand trucks to lift and move your equipment. To protect your flooring, our movers will use furniture slides or cardboard to avoid scuffs and scrapes. We’ll also wrap any equipment up with the appropriate materials (such as moving blankets) to protect it and the space it’s currently in from bumps and damages.
From there, we’ll either get your home gym to the next location or if you’re not ready for it in your space just yet, we’ll store it for you. Storing your equipment with electronic components is a special concern, because they don’t tolerate the ups and downs of temperature change well. Ensuring that the items can be stored in a climate controlled facility will ensure that they will be ready to use when you’re done storing them.
