Moving A Wooden Swing Set

A wooden swing set looks great among the trees and foliage of your backyard. When you move houses or reformat your existing landscape, however, you might need to move your swing set.

Moving a Wooden Swing Set

Before you move the swing set, you should make sure you have enough space for it. If you are moving to a new house, measure the dimensions of your yard against the size of your set.

You should also make sure that you have a way to get it there. A truck or flat trailer will be ideal.

Tearing It Down

If your swing set has been up for several years, the bolts may have set in the wood and rusted. This will make them harder to remove. Instead of using force, apply some WD-40 and let sit for a few days so that oil can penetrate the wood and loosen the bolts.

Make Sure It Is Worth Moving

As you disassemble your swing set, pieces might crumble or fall off. If this happens, consider replacing some parts. You may decide that the set is not worth salvaging, so dispose of the entire thing and start over.
