on Airtasker: Preparing your yard
Though you may already have an idea on where to put the swing set, you might not have had the time to clear that part of your yard
. It’s best to create a smooth, soft area underneath your swing set, especially if young children will be using the swings. Placing rubber, mulch, or sand can soften any sudden landings. A Tasker can help with this pre-assembly work, but it’s best to specify this in your task post. Preparing the swing set and tools
Taskers will usually bring their tools, so it’s best to inform them beforehand about the kind of swing set you have. You can also have them use your tools if ever you already have them lying around. Your Tasker will also take a look at the parts of the swing set, inspect them for any damage, and make sure that there are no missing parts. Reading the swing set assembly instructions
This is a vital part for any installation or assembly project! Your Tasker will usually do this before beginning any assembly work. Even seasoned assemblers will turn to the manual to avoid any surprises while building your swing set. Assembling the swing set
Assembly usually starts with the upright parts of the swing, followed by the crosspiece, then the swings. Of course, instructions may vary depending on the type of swing set you have, or if your tasker has specific tips or hacks. What’s important is that the swing set is safe to use. Which leads us to our last inclusion below: Inspecting the swing set
Once the swing set is done, your tasker may ask you to take a look at the finished product. You’ll want to make sure that the structure is stable and that the swings’ chains are correctly attached. You can also take this time to ask your tasker about maintenance tips for various kinds of weather.
Once you’re satisfied with the swing set, your tasker will pack up their tools and clean up the assembly area. You and your family are now free to enjoy your new swing set!
