Great Sporting & Outdoor Equipment to Donate During the Summer

May 13, 2023 | 9pickup Donation Pickup Boca Raton FL

Summer is just around the corner, and that means most people are buying new equipment for summer travel ball leagues, water sports and more! What can you do with your slightly used equipment to make room for your new summertime toys? Donate them! Second-hand stores offer affordable equipment that people can use to enjoy the summer season. Here are some types of summertime equipment that people can donate and why it’s important.



Bicycles are a great way to get exercise and explore the outdoors. However, they can be expensive and out of reach for some people. Most adult bicycles can run anywhere between $300-$1,000. By donating a gently used bicycle to a second-hand store, you can help someone enjoy the benefits of cycling without breaking the bank.


Camping Gear

Camping is a great way to get outdoors, but it can require quite a bit of gear. Tents, sleeping bags, and camping stoves can be expensive and are often only used a few times a year. Camping costs quickly add up. However, by donating camping gear to a second-hand store, you can help others enjoy the great outdoors without having to purchase expensive equipment.


Water Sports Equipment

Swimming, surfing, kayaking, and other water sports are popular summertime activities that require specific equipment. While some area lakes can offer rentals, not all of them do and not everyone can afford to purchase water equipment. By donating gently used water sports equipment to a second-hand store, you can help people enjoy these activities without having to invest in expensive gear. By donating to 9Pickup, you get the peace of mind that we’ll handle transporting your large equipment! 


Exercise Equipment 

Most people have dreams of keeping their “summer bod” ready throughout the season. However, exercise equipment can quickly break the bank for people, even if someone just wants to get a small weight rack with a few dumbbells or kettlebells. By donating gently-used exercise equipment, you’re able to help someone and their family keep healthy throughout the summer — and beyond! 


Outdoor Furniture

Spending time outside on a nice day is one of the best ways to enjoy the summer season. By donating gently used outdoor furniture to a second-hand store, you can help someone create a comfortable and inviting outdoor space without having to spend a lot of money.


If you have gently used summertime equipment lying around, consider donating it to a second-hand store today. We have several 9Pickup donation centers that you can visit to drop off your lightly used summer tools. We also know that summertime equipment can be bulky or hard to transport.
