Assembly Instructions Do Make A Difference
My wife and I recently bought a outdoor trampoline for the kids. Last night, we tackled the assembly which was not a great experience to say the least – the flow of the text was jagged and hard to follow, the images were photos printed in grayscale and the combination of the two left me confused and alone. No support videos or 800 numbers. All I had was a website with no link to any support material. I was frustrated and discouraged that something I made the investment in was not easier to put together.
Working at Teeter, I suppose I have a glorified standard of what support materials should arrive with a product. Since every product comes with detailed assembly instructions that include detailed drawings and step-by-step directions, as well as our 800 number, email address, and website that has the support material available for download, I know our customers are taken care of.
Certain Teeter models come with assembly DVD’s which walk you through the assembly of your specific Teeter inversion table. That way you bring your box in front of the TV and just hit your DVD players “Pause” button each time you need to complete a step. Nothing makes it easier to do something when someone is showing and explaining you how to do it at your own pace.
Lastly, I would not have been able to find a trampoline that comes 90% assembled and only takes 13 minutes to complete its assembly as Teeter products are, as found by an independent engineering study. The A-Frame, the foundation of an inversion table comes 100% assembled with any Teeter. The ankle enclosure and mainshaft, the lifeline of an inversion table, comes 100% assembled with a Teeter. The bed only needs 2 screws on the back of the head section on the table, which is more about packing than assembly. Get on the handles and your Teeter is done! According to the same independent engineering study, the average competitors table takes 71 minutes to assemble – that’s more time than it took me to assemble a 15′ outdoor trampoline with sub-par instructions.
Lets face it; you’re most likely buying an inversion table because of back pain, sciatica, or some other condition that’s leaving you extremely uncomfortable and in pain! The last thing you want to do is get down on the floor and hover over dozens of parts trying to assemble your inversion table. Do yourself and your back a favor when looking for an inversion table and make it a Teeter so you don’t have to aggravate your symptoms trying to assemble the product you got to alleviate them.
