It’s often said that a treadmill or exercise bike is the most expensive clothes-drying rack you will ever buy. We always go into buying exercise equipment with the best intentions, but sometimes things just don’t work out and rather than a piece of equipment that was supposed to get you into shape for just twenty minutes a day, you are left with a heavy, awkward piece of metal and rubber stuck in the corner of the room gathering socks, shirts, and underwear.
Exercise equipment is hard to get rid of too. As the technology evolves, that exercise bike that was cutting edge a few years ago is outdated and it becomes impossible to get rid of. What you are eventually left with is a piece of junk taking up space in your basement that nobody wants. The thing is that somebody could probably use it, someone will take it, you just need to use your resources and contact College HUNK Hauling Junk & Moving to take that junk off your hands.
Eco-friendly exercise equipment removal in Bloomfield Hills
Not all junk is created equally. Just because your exercise bike, treadmill, weight bench, or other equipment has outlived its usefulness in your home or business doesn’t mean that it is worthless. College HUNKS Hauling Junk & Moving in Bloomfield Hills partners with many charitable organizations and salvage companies to put that junk back to work. Reuse, repurposing, and recycling is better for the environment too, since the materials, energy, pollution, and waste generated every time a new recumbent bike is made is reduced when old equipment gets a second life with someone else. This makes for happier people and a happier planet!
Equipment we take
Here are some of the most common pieces of exercise equipment we take:
Treadmills: Treadmills are incredibly heavy and awkward to move. Your unwanted treadmill can find use in another home, or be used for parts and salvage depending on the need.
Stationary bikes: Much like the treadmill with the exception that stationary bikes have a smaller footprint in your home. However, unused stationary bikes get in the way, and especially if they are broken, they are just taking up floorspace.
Rowing machines: Rowing machines are a common type of equipment that offers an incredible full-body workout. But if you aren’t using it, get rid of it and get that corner of your living room back. We can help.
Home gyms: Very complex, heavy, and space-dominating machines, home gyms are subject to breakage, are expensive to maintain, and eventually they can gather dust in a large portion of your basement or garage. So, take action and have it hauled away!
Free weights: This piece of equipment can be an excellent part of your exercise regimen until a weight bench is damaged, an injury keeps you from lifting, or your interests have drifted beyond free weights. Send this unwieldy piece of equipment to a better place and have one of our experts haul it away. We are skilled and trained in the best way to move heavy items without damage to your home.
Ellipticals: This piece of equipment is rapidly changing, with newer models being better for ergonomics, space-saving, and the ways they perform complicated programs to give you a better workout. Upgrade and get rid of the old machine to free up space
How to prepare your equipment removal
When you are ready to part with that heavy piece of exercise equipment, there are a few things you need to do first to help us out.
- Check condition: This will help us to determine the best way to move something. If for instance, a home gym has a break in a weld, we might need to know a better way to move it without it being a danger to our crew or your property. This also gives us an idea of if it can be donated once it has been removed from your home or business.
- Move into storage positions/locked state: This keeps the equipment uniform, with a smaller profile to navigate through halls, up or downstairs, and into our trucks.
- Protect with plastic wrap or blankets: This will protect the equipment from any further damage, as well as your walls, floors, and even the truck being used to haul the equipment. Generally, our HUNKS will provide these for you.
Whether it is moving exercise equipment to a new location or just getting rid of old junk entirely, you should consider the effort, inconvenience, and possible expense of doing it yourself. Hiring a professional junk removal service takes the guesswork out of the best way to move something of this size and weight. An all-in-one service will also take the guesswork out of the best way to dispose of equipment once it is gone.

We partner with charities, salvage companies, and other organizations to keep as much junk out of the landfill as possible. This not only means we are helping reduce the impact of waste on the environment but also keeps our prices down, which is a saving we pass on to our customers.
