How To Disassemble Weight Bench

United States
September 26, 2012 3:24pm CST
My parents have a weight machine in the house that my brother had professionally assembled years ago. Now, they want it out of the house because it is on the 2nd floor of the house and they are concerned that it could cause the ceiling to cave in some day. My question is does anyone know of a company that specializes in taking apart a weight machine? Hopefully in my city, which is NYC,NY. Any help suggested here would be greatly appreciated. We are in great need of getting this thing broken down and out of here so we can either sell it or give it away. Thanks and happy mylotting.

If you don't know who did the assembly,or where it was bought,check the listings for Gym equipment suppliers who might be able to give advice..Also,Would it not be possible to take it apart yourself? what kind of fixings can you see that are holding it together,would they be Bolts,screws,or whatever? And If you were just wanting to sell or get rid of it,you could let the next owner take care of dismantling it themselves and take it with them..

Thanks so much for that response ShepherdSpy, it was very helpful. I think we will take that suggestion that the prospective buyer, dismantle it themselves. Thanks again.

You're welcome! The idea seems to be popular on Ebay where people sell stuff and only offer it locally so they don't have to pay for transport,post or shipping costs..(the same goes for freecycle..I got rid of an old sofa that way..)and besides being good practice for re-assembling the thing themselves,it should also give the buyers a bit of a workout,too! Thanks for the BR!
