Where Can I Find An Installer to Set Up My New Elliptical?

We get emails all the time here at the Guru asking us if we can send someone to install an elliptical machine. Unfortunately, although we have become quite good at putting together even the most difficult of ellipticals, we can’t travel all across the country to help all of our visitors build their new machines….we’re sorry! 🙂Elliptical Assembly

But the good news is that we recently came across a new service that might be helpful to you guys. We’ve come across many exercise equipment installers over the years, but without knowing enough about them we weren’t able to wholeheartedly recommend them to our visitors, just in case something went wrong.

This new service is called the Elliptical Assembly Program from Amazon Home Services. As have millions of loyal customers, we have come to trust and rely on Amazon over the years, for our own needs as well as those of our visitors.

They are the leading online retailer for a reason…top notch customer service, great prices and great selection. They carry some of the most popular brands of ellipticals, and they often offer better prices than the manufacturers themselves. So we’ve saved our customers thousands of dollars over the years just by pointing them to the Amazon Elliptical Store and feel really good about that.

So when we discovered that they now offer elliptical assembly and installation, we had to learn more about it. We contacted customer service and asked a ton of questions about how it works.

How does the Amazon elliptical installation program work?

Basically, you enter your zip code and they tell you instantly if there is an installer available in your area. Most areas will have technicians available, and they add more professionals all of the time.

If there is someone in your area, you will get an estimate for the installation of one new machine in your home. If the rate works for you, you can request three arrival time preferences. Typically you’ll see time windows: 8-11am, 11-2pm, 2-5pm and 5-8pm, Monday through Sunday, although that may vary depending on availability.

You can then choose whether or not you want the elliptical installer to be able to call you with any questions and/or text you with updates. Once you’ve selected your desired times and indicated your contact preferences, you can then add the service to your cart and check out.

The installer will then contact you to confirm the time and date, find out what elliptical machine you have, and go over any other pertinent details.

What’s the advantage to choosing Amazon?

There are many. For starters, you can trust them. Amazon being the reputable company that they are would not associate with unqualified, unprofessional installers. You can rest assured that they’ve assembled a top-notch network of professionals who can get the job done, and get it done right.

Also, there’s currently an added bonus of a $30 gift card when you spend $75 or more on installation. This applies to all of their home services so if you need anything else, like painting, plumbing, computer repair or anything else you’ve been putting off, this is a good route to go.

So that’s a nice little incentive to use their services. I’m not sure if they will always offer the gift cards, but it’s a nice touch to help bring down the cost a bit.

So if you are buying an elliptical machine, from Amazon or anywhere else, consider their installation service if you’re not adept at doing it yourself. We find that regardless of your level of handiness, it’s always best to have a professional do the job, especially when it comes to putting together a piece of exercise equipment with tons of moving parts. Do yourself a favor and let the pros handle it…you’ll be glad you did!

If you do use the Amazon Elliptical Assembly service, please let us know how it went for you. We’ll be happy to share your experience with our visitors.
