Imagine you are moving houses, and while you start packing up almost everything in the house into several empty cartons, there’s one odd object that is staring out at you. There is a NordicTrack Treadmill sitting on the corner of the room.
You know, if you let yourself disassemble NordicTrack Treadmill, there are sure to be some technicalities that could arise. You could wait for professionals or movers, but that seems too expensive.
So you ask these questions, “Can you take apart a NordicTrack treadmill to move? How do you move a NordicTrack treadmill through a doorway? How do I move my treadmill to another room?” etc. Today we will attempt to answer each one of them.
Rolling on Its Wheels
If you are only moving it on the same floor, maybe from one room to another or one apartment to another on the same floor of the same building, you can just roll your treadmill out.
It is the easiest and the simplest way of moving the NordicTrack Treadmill. The NordicTrack Treadmill has two distinctive strong wheels to support the whole machine quite easily.
Disconnect From Power Supply
Firstly, make sure to turn off the treadmill and disconnect it from any power source. Failing to do that can turn on your treadmill in the middle of the wheeling and result in a severe accident.
Clean and Tidy the Way Out
Secondly, clean any obstacle on the way where you would be rolling the treadmill out. You certainly don’t want the machine to get stuck on an unnecessary object, nor do you want to fall over one yourself.
Fold and Roll Out
Thirdly, fold your NordicTrack before you roll it out. This act makes it more portable and certainly helps out on moving the treadmill on its own.
Folding and Carrying It Out
If your movement compasses over a little more than a few steps, we recommend folding your treadmill and carrying it out on a roller. As you would require the treadmill to go through steps up and down, rolling on its wheel wouldn’t be able to carry the burn on its own.
Read the Manual
Firstly consult your NordicTrack Manual when you try to fold it for the first time.
Hold and Raise the Treadmill
Hold the Frame of your NordicTrack Treadmill before you raise it until the knob latches onto the storage position.
Keep It Out of Direct Sunlight
Keep the folded treadmill out of the reach of direct sunlight to ensure no damage. More so, keep it covered with a mat to provide extra protection.
Use a Furniture Dolly if Needed
When rolling it on, use a furniture dolly. You can buy one for $20 or cheaper if you can get it at a thrift shop second hand or if you can rent it for a day.
Carry It Outside
Use the help of movers or your friends when you try to carry the treadmill over to the furniture dolly. Treadmills can be quite heavy, and if you are not sure of yourself to carry the load, don’t take the load and then hurt your muscles.
Go through this option only if you can lift 20 kgs on and off as that is the minimum force you would need to fold the NordicTrack Treadmill thoroughly.
Please refrain from doing any lifting if you aren’t able to do it as it could result in strain on the muscles of your back or hands or, in extreme cases, cause muscle tears. These are long term damages which can cause long term effect and expensive treatments.
How to Disassemble the Treadmill
This step requires a bit of hardware knowledge to carry it out. You don’t need to be a professional, but you need to know and understand how to use a screwdriver, nut, and bolts to disassemble the NordicTrack Treadmill.
Read the Manual
Firstly, find out where you kept the user manual of your treadmill from any corner of your house. If you are not able to find it still, you can look it up online by using the model of your NordicTrack. NordicTrack Treadmills are famous enough that you can get one from any online user manual library.
Understands the Mechanisms
Accustom yourself to the treadmills with their names and the types of screws and nuts used in the machine.
Gather Your Tools
Plan and check if you have the necessary screwdrivers to unscrew all the nuts and bolts. Finding it out on the day of moving would just make you very stressed out and wouldn’t help at all.
Disassemble Ahead of Moving Day
Make sure you disassemble way ahead the day of moving and store your treadmill in a cold secure place, away from direct sunlight.
Ask For Help if Required
On the day of moving, take the help of someone else when you move your treadmill to your new place.
Reassemble Again at Your New Place
After reaching there, reassemble your treadmill back and plug it in to check if it works. If you follow your user manual to the dot, this should work.
Moving houses are no small thing, and carrying a treadmill can turn out to be even more daunting. We hope these three ways help you the next time you need to move or disassemble the NordicTrack treadmill.
