Scooters arrived!!

It seemed to take forever for our scooters to come in. Well, you know how it is. We were kind of like kids at Christmas on the count-down. :) Jeff ordered one scooter, but when it came in it was too short for his feet to fit on top of it, so he had to re-order. He was fortunate enough to be able to order his through a local medi-home office and they delivered it right inside the front door assembled and ready to go. Lucky little twerp. I ordered one through another company online and it turned out to be on backorder for months (yes, literally) so I had to re-order another one! Finally the great day arrived and mine came by truck. And here's how they left it:

Now, I know I don't need to remind you that this is a mobility scooter. So any twit knows that the person using it is handicap. Oh, yes, let's not forget that it weighs over 300 lbs. And that box is on a pallet and it's sitting next to the street. No, he would not move it 10 ft with his dolly-cart next to the ramp. My Pitt-Ohio experience was not good. It got even worse when I opened up the packing slip and it read INSIDE DELIVERY. hmmm.....did he think that meant barely inside the yard? Lucky us, we have a wonderful neighbor who came running and helped us unpack it right there in the yard and fortunately, it was "mostly" assembled and we pushed everything up the ramp. I do have to say though, the company Spinlife is wonderful and I have talked to several wonderful reps there. They gave me a discount and even sent me a free scooter cover for all my problems!

Drumroll, please..........

And here they are:
