- 2As you disassemble, lay out the bolts, nuts, and other small parts in order of disassembly. Try to re-screw them where they are meant to go; if you can’t, put them in plastic sandwich bags labeled with how many are inside and the steps they are needed for. Rubber band the bags shut and tape them together to ensure they are not lost in the move.
- 3Secure the home gym's parts with ropes and rubber bands.
- 4When disassembling, try to break the gym down into light sections; aim to reduce unnecessary bulk as much as possible while doing so.
- 5Bubble wrap parts and box them if necessary.
