It's just like the other day after the staircat purchase, just the day after, a super nice stair king that looked almost new with the elevator in front with extra wheels. I had my finger on the bid button even though I knew it would be too tall. It was just an awesome one with all the bells and whistles at a super price deal. I'm glad someone bought it because I don't have to worry about buying 2 of them.

I would of put it in my living room on display because it was so nice.

So the stair climber started in Florida, then to Montgomery, AL and now is in Atlanta. I think it went on a plane because all that distance in one day? Delivery is supposed to be next monday but I doubt that, it'll take a lot more time for all that border/duty stuff.

What would you use a safe for anyway? Pistols and hand guns? I wouldn't see anyone put money because we have banks unless...., maybe expensive jewelry?

That's why I wrote "unless....". That was for "reading between the lines".

but its never gonna be a problem unless you try to take a safe or a gun case up a flight of stairs that is near its limit, and that is probably never gonna happen.....

I ran into an old lady nearby last week that has an antique stove I would like to get my hands on and offered to get it out of her basement cause no one else had the manpower to do it.... been sitting down there for probably 50 years... waiting to hear back from her...



The other day I saw a vise that had to be at least 100lbs and had been sitting there in the basement behind the door for like 50 years. The homeowner wasn't home to inquire :(

I have good news and bad news....and good news to finish it off.

Good news I received the staircat at noon and I was glad it wasn't stolen along the way. The UPS driver thought my reinforced front door was for show. Nope.

The bad news : Anyway the bad news as I took the wrapping off I noticed 2 missing feet and I was like this can't be f_ck_ng happening. The baterry was completely out upside down. I saw missing strap hooks to hold it down. I got some from a rubber bungee in my garage and reshaped the bracket. Then the bolt to the battery terminal were missing, I went and found some in the garage.

So I tried to use it a little, the battery was almost dead and I was hearing this clanking, so I pulled the cover off to see the motor adjustment bolt had jumped out and was all bent. I went and replaced it with something new. Then as I'm cleaning the chains I see it has been cut and that's why in the listing the foot was crooked. The seller assured me nothing was wrong with it. Now I was mad!

I was thinking this is going to be hell as good luck getting a resolution and protection from ebay or paypal.

I went online found some parts list, called the authorized dealer, got some prices and sent a message to the seller with pics of the cost of parts for 2 new chains and feet.

Good news : He responded he hadn't verified the lift in person but he refunded the amount it's going to cost for parts 470$CAD!!! No questions asked. I'll be ordering them tomorrow morning, several more weeks before I get them in the mail so I can replace them.

I'm eating the shipping for the parts but at least he didn't argue. That's a relief.

Now I'm off to write a side story in the soap thread. What a day!

that thing looks like it was beat to $hit....I would tell the seller you havent tested it fully and if with the new parts something else is wrong you want 100% money back..I call BS he didnt know all the problems...thats why new is always best even at more $$ because you aint done fixing that thing yet and ill bet in the end a new one would have been cheaper...
