Moving Your Child’s Play Set

When you consider the size of the average backyard play set, you can see why many homeowners have a difficult time deciding whether or not it’s worth it to move to your new home. While this is certainly a decision for you to make, here are a few pros and cons of each of your options!


If you chose to move your children’s play set, it would be really easy for your kids to adapt to their new home. (Seeing as they bring a little piece of home with them!) After all, they are giving up their bedroom, their neighborhood, and maybe even their friends.

Additionally, moving your children’s play set might make selling your home easier than including it with the house. If the new homeowners don’t have children or don’t want to have the added cost of owning a play set like that to their insurance, taking it with you would be your best bet anyway.


On the other hand, moving a large play set has its issues.

First, there’s the added work of dismantling the play set, packing it, and transporting it. Depending on how complicated a playground is. You may need to pay a team of professionals to break it down.

The second thing to consider is how much backyard room you will have in your new place. If it doesn’t fit, you may have incurred the expenses of transporting such a large play set for nothing. It might be better to sell it and look for one that does fit in your backyard.
