Dismantling Safety TipsIf you have a kids’ playhouse that’s showing signs of wear or your children have outgrown it, you’ll probably want to recapture that space. Trouble is, this isn’t a big-time item that’s in high demand. But, when it’s got to go, it’s got to go. So, do yourself a favor and take it down when you have at least a whole weekend. Also, keep kids and pets away while dismantling it.
For many families, a playhouse 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. —MetroParentAnd, perhaps most important of all, have a plan for what you’ll do with the materials. No, you can’t put it out on the curb. (That’s not how playhouse disposal is done.) But, there are other things you can do with it. Also, make sure you have at least one set of helping hands. This will take two people at the minimum.
Old Playground Removal in Palm HarborNow, if you’re planning to have more children or another is already on the way, you can give it a little makeover. All that’s needed is replacing a few features and then giving it a fresh coat of stain or paint. Viola! It’s brand-new again. But, if this isn’t the case, here are some old playground removal options to consider:
- Sell it yourself locally. Rather than take time out of your busy schedule disassembling this huge thing, sell it and let someone else do the work. You can publish an online ad and stipulate the buyer is responsible for relocating it.
- Give it away with the house. If you’re going to sell your house, there’s no reason you can’t throw it in as part of the deal (that is, if it’s in good, usable condition). Just put that in the contract and be done with it.
- Donate it to a church or school. You can also contact local churches and schools to see if one has a need for the playset. If you find a taker, you not only get rid of the set, you also gain a tax write-off.
- Call a junk hauling and removal service. Should none of these be a real option, you can always bring in a local junk removal service to take care of it for you.
