Secure & Efficient Moving Tips for Your Peloton.
Packing Peloton Bike
Peloton Bikes have become increasingly popular among exercise aficionados over the last decade or so, providing an efficient and trendy method for getting fit and losing that excess weight. They can be found not only in regular gyms but in home gyms and bedrooms across the country. Combining good old fashioned sweating it out with the modern use of touch screens and other cutting edge technology, the Peloton has redefined the exercise routine in one fell swoop.
Unfortunately, when you decide to make a move, Pelotons can be one of the more challenging aspects of that project, namely due to their size, weight, and the number of moving parts involved, especially the delicate screens that can be easily broken if not properly handled. Pelotons are also quite an expensive investment, and the last thing you want or need is for it to be damaged as a result of improper packing or careless movers. This is one instance where you definitely do not want to scrimp on the packing supplies and techniques for your move.
The following are recommendations for the proper care and feeding of your Peloton during your upcoming move.
The Options Available
Peloton products, not just bikes, but also treadmills, can come in a wide variety of sizes and weights. Some of the lighter models can weigh around 130 pounds, whereas treadmills can weigh in at nearly 450 pounds. This is definitely a case of proper planning preventing poor performance.
You will want to determine if this is something that you can successfully move on your own, or if you require assistance. For items as bulky and heavy as a Peloton, professional movers are almost always the preferred and recommended option.
That said, you can begin the process by having your Peloton bike or treadmill serviced and prepped for your upcoming move. Make certain that your moving providers have the proper experience handling this sort of item, and what kinds of insurance they offer to make sure it arrives safely to your new destination.
Preparing Your Peloton for Its New Home
Part of the preparation for moving your Peloton is removing or dissembling those parts of the unit that will a) reduce the risk of damage, and b) protect delicate parts of the unit.
Removing The Touchscreen
Removing The Weight Holder, Pedals, and Water Bottle Mount
Packing the Peloton
Once all the above items have been removed and packed safely away, it is time to pack up the actual bike itself. You want to make sure it is protected from damage before, during and after the move.
Moving The Peloton
Okay, you’re packed up and ready to go. Now for the hard part, actually transporting the Peloton to your new location.
You can of course save money by moving your Peloton on your own or with the help of friends, however, a professional moving company has the experience and the ability to conduct the move far more rapidly and efficiently. And the risk of damage not covered under your warranty protection could end up costing you more than if you had just hired the professional movers in the first place.
As with any specialized move, always take the time to consider the best way for things to be done. Again, proper planning prevents poor performance. All the best to you as you make the move to your new home!
