    Default Getting rid of backyard play centre-what do you do?

    I just wonder what people do with them when they get rid of them?

    DD has kinda out grown hers. I think she has had it for about 5 years and she has finally agreed to let it go lol.

    It is one of the huge ones from Costco, so it is still good, it just needs a coat of stain. Do you just pitch it, or do you sell it, give it away? Once they get taken down, can they even be put back together?

    Thanks

    Treasure your loved ones, in a blink of an eye they can be gone and there is no second chance to show them how much you loved them.

    We got one off of kijiji for free we just had to disassemble it and take it away ourselves. We were able to put it back up no problem and it gets lots of use.
    If you wanted to try and get money for it you could put up an ad and then change it to free if it's not selling.

    Sell it! If it's still safe to use, why not? Would be a huge waste to send that to the landfill for nothing. Or if you know someone with littler kids than yours, you could offer it to them
    free if you wanted. It is totally normal to put in an ad that the people have to tear it down and remove it themselves, btw, so don't feel badly doing that. Usually it is quite a savings so people understand you have to work for that.
    Maybe let us know what you'd be asking I know a friend with a daycare who is looking for one soon

    You'll likely be able to sell it on Kijiji within a day.
