Ordering a treadmill in the middle of a pandemic has its own challenges. Just having to wait a month for delivery was the first. Add to that the delivery restrictions that were in place. There was no option to have it delivered to the house or to pay to have someone assemble it. It was necessary to pay extra and hope the truck driver would drop it in the garage, which is just across the driveway, in an older neighborhood from back before color (family joke about black and white TV days).
Once delivered I needed to get help getting it inside. Thanks to the son-in-law and a neighbor the really heavy base came up his driveway and into the house. A lot of furniture reorganization was required to make space.
Then the assembly began. To keep all of the screws of varying sizes together we decided to tape them down to a tray using blue painter's tape. This also was to hopefully discourage my crazy cat from batting them under furniture while we were busy trying to assemble all of the parts. The console required masking up and having my daughter come over and help, as trying to hold it and make the electrical connections alone was not working.
