Trampolines hold a lot of great memories for families all over, and while they are beloved parts of many peoples homes, there comes a time when they have got to go. If you’re trampoline is falling apart, or has been sitting unused in your backyard for what feels like ages, then a trampoline removal might be in order. Getting rid of a trampoline can be an intimidating task. But, JM Junk Removers has got a few tips on how to get it done, and who to call if you need some help!

When is it Time to Get Rid of Your Trampoline?

For some it can be easy to know when it is time for their trampoline to go. However, others may struggle more with knowing if their trampoline is still wanted, needed, and in good enough condition to safely keep. The first question to ask yourself is if you still have a need for the trampoline. Think about when the trampoline was last used, and if you believe it will continue to be consistently used. If you no longer want the trampoline or if you don’t really use it anymore, it’s time to let it go.

If you still want your trampoline, but are unsure of it is good enough condition, that is a different story. Trampolines face a lot of wear and tear over time. Being outside and exposed to the elements can lead to your trampoline breaking down faster. On average trampolines can last from around three to eight years. Signs such as rust around the springs and poles and holes in the net, pad, or mat can be good indicators that it is time to let go of your trampoline.

Removing a trampoline can be process, but with the proper tools and knowledge it can be done. Dismantling your trampoline before removing it can make both the transportation and disposal of it a lot easier. However, it is also possible to remove the trampoline without taking it apart first. Here we’re going to focus on removing a trampoline by dismantling it first, as it can require a few extra steps to get it done.

First, when removing any large object, or object that must be taken apart, preparation is key. Making sure you have all the necessary tools on hand to complete the task will set you up for success. One of the most useful tools for this process will a spring pull tool, or a T-hook. These can be fine at Home Depot, Walmart, and other similar stores. This tool will make removing the trampolines springs much easier. You will also need some gloves to help protect your hands through the process. It is also possible that you will need a screwdriver or wrench, this depending on the make and model of your trampoline.

The removal process begins with dismantling the trampoline, starting with removing any of its accessories such as the safety net. Then remove the safety mat to expose the its springs. This next step may take some time. Using your spring pull hook carefully remove all of the trampoline’s springs. After all the springs have been removed, put the mat aside and get ready to disassemble the frame. Breaking down the frame will look different depending on the make and model of your trampoline, but it will likely require a screwdriver or wrench to remove the screws or bolts connecting the rods and legs. After the frame had been dissembled the trampoline is ready to be moved. Take the trampoline pieces and, depending on how you plan on disposing of them, either load them into a car or truck for transport, or leave them in the designated disposal spot.

There are a few different options when it comes to disposing of your trampoline. If you’re trampoline is still in good condition, you can look into selling or donating it. But, if it is not in a useable condition you can recycle or throw it away. Metal components of the trampoline like the frame and springs can often be recycled, and other pieces such as the net and mat can be thrown away. Just make sure to check that the place where you plan on dropping off your trampoline to be recycled accepts metal. This website can help locate recycling centers and landfills near you.
