Yikes, Dee!! They just dropped it off? Looks like you need a professional for this job.

So happy for you.

Please, be careful. No racing around!

No speeding until it's out of the box Opi lol.

I've been on the phone all day but I'll be getting someone out ASAP to put it together - too much of a job for me.

I can't believe it just came in a box, like, 'ok, well, you're on your own now, have fun putting it together...' They don't send someone along to assemble it for you? That doesn't sound right...

Well, hope it gets put together soon so you can enjoy it... but no speeding or daredevil stunts!

Some people - older folks for example - are probably in a position to put it together themselves - its much cheaper that way.
Its not an option for me tho.

It was a miscommunication but should be fixed next week

You have to PAY to have it put together?? That's not right!

What happens to your old one? Do they come and get that and refurbish it for someone else to use?

I don't even know what a spanner is, but I'd totally help you.






I probably wouldn't be much help, right? :-|

Congrats on the new toy, though. Is it red again, or teal, or silver? Or black!

I'm so happy you got a new one, Dee!
I'm a disaster at putting things together - always baffled by the instructions. Hope you'll be up & running soon.

Seeing the progress in the construction would be cool, but I mainly want to see the finished product.

I'm not going to be the one unboxing it and putting it together so you folks will have to be content with the finished product.
I'm still waiting for some bits and bobs to arrive today - once they come I can get someone out
