How to Prepare Exercise Machines for LTL Shipping
LTL freight shipments are loaded and unloaded several times before reaching their destination. They travel with dozens of other shipments that may shift around during transit. It’s important to properly package and secure your equipment before shipping.
Refer to the owner’s manual first. It should specify whether any special handling is necessary.
Break down your equipment into smaller pieces. Wrap individual pieces as much as possible to prevent rubbing or friction during transit.
Fold down arms or extensions. Remove accessories like cup holders and trays. Remove items such as cords, loose weights, or pulleys.
Securing loose items and boxing small pieces is a must. Remove casters and check if your equipment has any lock settings to prevent moving parts from moving during transit. Palletize or crate the exercise equipment and any individually-packed pieces.
Use large moving blankets, padding, or cardboard to protect the surface areas of your equipment from scratches.
Measure the dimensions of the entire shipment (including packaging) and get the total weight.
