Kids’ Swing Set Disposal OptionsBefore you resign yourself to getting off your property and out of your yard, you might consider giving it a little TLC. It can be a worthwhile investment, particularly if you’re going to have more children. The thing about a kids’ swing set that makes dealing with it difficult, is it’s not much different from dealing with old fitness equipment — practically no demand. And, if you don’t want to repurpose parts of it for other uses, you’ll still have a huge item to deal with.
For many families, a backyard playset or swing set means hours of family entertainment. When moving, these families are often reluctant to leave their kids’ favorite outdoor play equipment behind. Moving a backyard playset is not nearly as challenging as people think it is. A few basic tools, a wide open Saturday, a truck and some helping hands are the only prerequisites. —Metro ParentThis is especially challenging for parents with children who are growing out of a swing set. They’re getting too old (or at least have the perception that it’s for younger kids) and this means you’ll have to dispose of it somehow. Now, this begs the question as to how to deal with a kids’ swing set. Well, there are more than just a few options available. Here are some helpful kids’ swing set disposal options to try out:
- Sell it online. If the set is in good condition (and isn’t on any current or past recall lists), you can simply put an ad online. Of course, the buyer will be responsible for taking off your property. Look for the same or similar sets and see their prices. Then, set your price lower and you’ll get more interest.
- Give it to a neighbor. If you have a neighbor with children who are the appropriate age, you can give it away. You can also sell it for a deep discount and put a little cash in your pocket while getting it out of your yard.
- Let it stay with the house. If you are selling your home and the swing set is in good condition, just leave it behind for the family you sell the property to and let them enjoy it. This way, you don’t have to lift a finger.
- Donate it to a school or church. Another option is to donate the swing set to a local school or church. Just contact a few and you might find a taker who can dismantle it and set it up on their property for kids to use.
- Call a junk removal company out. Should the kids’ swing set not be in good condition or you can’t seem to sell it or give it away, just have a junk removal company take care of it for you. This way, you won’t have to do a thing and you can get rid of other junk at the same time.
