Answers Ask Question
Answer ID 51
How do I move the BEAR system?

Setup and put-away of the BEAR system takes about 15 minutes each. It's probably not the best solution if you're wanting to move it in and out daily. Alternatively, if you just have to move it once every few weeks, seasonally or never BEAR is a great solution delivering unmatched durability and performance versus cheaper plastic portables.

To easily move the BEAR system, remove about half of the concrete blocks in the weight box to balance the system. Adjust BEAR to its lowest point and then pull on the rim to tip it back on the large turf tires. Now, like a dolly, you have complete freedom of movement. Watch BEAR in action

We recommend two adults to complete a move although it can be done with one if there isn't much of a grade.

Answer ID 52
Can BEAR be used indoors?

Yes, about half of the time that's exactly where BEAR is used. We have an indoor version (standard) and an outdoor version (Rust Armor). You can choose the version when ordering.

Answer ID 53
How much space does the BEAR take up?

Consider in-ground If BEAR's footprint is a littler larger than you want, consider an in-ground system which has a much smaller footprint and can moved by simply unbolting it from the concrete footer and then installing a new footer in a new location.

How does getting professional installation service work?

In most areas, professional installation service is available

We keep a well vetted list of professionals nationwide that have experience with our hoops and that are reviewed by our customers.  Find installers near me

Installation is purchased separately directly with the installer who should be able to give you a price over the phone or after a consultation visit for more complex installations.  Depending on the area and installer, the average price of installation is usually around $500 to $600.  We recommend lining up installation before ordering to make sure you're comfortable with the installer's price and timeline.

In some areas we offer installation service directly.  If you're in one of our areas you can purchase installation during the checkout process.  We'll call shortly after to answer any questions you might have and schedule your install.
