Hi, thanks for visiting Movers.com! Elliptical exercise machines can be pretty heavy and difficult to move. I've had some personal experience with moving an elliptical exercise machine, and even with taking one apart to fit in the backseat of my car -- trust me, that wasn't easy!
Luckily for you, you're only moving it from one bedroom to another bedroom. Depending on the distance from the bedroom you are moving it out of to the bedroom you wish to move it into, this can be a fairly simple job. For starters, make sure that you have at least one other person to help you move the machine. There are two main weight-bearing areas of the elliptical that you'll want to hold onto when you move it. The first is the handlebars and machine's monitor or console. The second is the rear of the machine, behind where you place your feet.
If the machine is too heavy for you to carry to the other room, even with another person sharing the weight, with one person holding each end of the machine, gently lift the machine and place it on top of a rolling dolly. If you don't have one, you can rent one or ask to borrow one from someone that does have it. Once it is on the dolly you can safely and easily roll it into whatever bedroom you wish to move it to.
