Having a treadmill is one of the most convenient things for a health conscious person because he would be able to exercise and stay fit, regardless of the type of weather outside.
Moreover, a treadmill in your own house means that you save up on a lot of time which is why this is ideal for professionals in high pressure jobs. However, while nothing can compare having a treadmill in the house, the process of getting it there can be very frustrating and painful.
The reason for this is simply that treadmills are inherently heavy machines that cannot be carried by a single person or even two people. This is why when you actually make the purchase of the treadmill you should make sure that you are comfortable with the delivery options that are being forwarded to you. There are primarily three different options that will be open to you, as the treadmill buyer. Here is a list of them all.
1. At the house:
The most basic delivery option that will be open to you would be curbside or, in simpler words, at the house. This means that the machine will be delivered to your doorstep, but taking it in to where you want it to be is entirely up to you. This is also the cheapest option available, which is why most people choose it. It is also worth mentioning that in some cases this option is also entirely free. However, this is also the reason why most people find themselves in a fix when they realize the weight of the treadmill and the difficulty of lugging it inside the house.
2. Inside the house:
Delivery inside the house, as is obvious, means that the treadmill would be delivered inside the home and not on the curbside. This is a paid service that most treadmill sellers provide. However, you need to be careful with this as well because it means that the treadmill would be delivered inside your house and nothing more. This means that the assembly of the treadmill would have to be done by you. Moreover, in home does not mean that you will find the treadmill placed in the right place. Most delivery men just leave the treadmill just inside the house and would reject you offhand if you even ask them to put it on the first or second floor.
3. Complete assembly:
The complete assembly option is not something that you will find with every treadmill seller because some wholesale sellers do not invest in this option. Therefore, if you are buying from a recognized seller then you can expect this option which entails the complete installation of your treadmill wherever you want it to be in your house. Needless to say, this extra facility comes only if you pay the treadmill seller extra money.
Depending on your exact situation, you should take into account all the delivery options and choose wisely. Furthermore, even after you have chosen, it would be wise if you clarify the exact details of the delivery process, personally.
