If you have a home with a basement, there’s a pretty good chance you have weights or a weight bench down there. You purchased or inherited it with the best of intentions. But you’ve discovered it’s just not the work out method for you, and you’d like that valuable space in your basement back. What do you do with it? It won’t fit in a trash can nor will your regular trash service pick it up. And the bench is pretty heavy, not to mention the weights themselves, and could be dangerous or extremely time consuming to move. How do you responsibly get rid of a weight bench? Here are 4 options for every time frame for easy weight bench removal.
4 Weight Bench Removal Options
If you can hold on to the weight bench for a little while, try listing it for sale on Facebook Marketplace or Craigslist. You can list the weight bench for somewhere between $50-$100 to garner interest quickly. If you have a capable vehicle, you could even make a little extra on top by charging a delivery fee.
Before loading it into your truck and driving around to different charities, call first. Don’t forget to try with the YMCA and local schools; they might be able to use the weight bench in their high school gym classes or after school programs. And they might even pick it up from your location. While there is a possibility you’d have to hold on to it for a few weeks until they’re available, you won’t have to break your back moving it yourself.
List It for Free
If the first two options don’t work for you, try listing it for free. You can list it on Facebook Marketplace or Craigslist. Or, if you have the ability or a friend to help you, move it to the end of your property near the road and tape a “FREE” sign to the weight bench. If you live on a busy enough street, it might disappear in a matter of hours.

But even if you’re planning removal for a month from now, give us a call, text, or email. We’ll schedule your weight bench removal so you don’t have to worry about it.
Say Goodbye To Your Old Weight Bench
Our friendly Junk Removal crew will give you a call half an hour before your arrival window to let you know what time you should expect them.
