Ordering a two-post lift…..

Thursday, October 25th, 2007

On July 13th, I ordered a two post lift for my new shop, from America’s Pride.  I did so after looking at the companies website.  It was full of red, white & blue, eagles and American flags.  It kinda makes you think that just maybe, your lift might be made here in the USA.  Wrongo.  As with most of these sites, the lifts are made either in China or some other third world country and shipped by boat to the good, ole USA.  Well, anyway, I needed a lift so I ordered one.  Lets fast forward to today…October 25th.  Guess what?  Still no lift. After ten phone calls and numerous emails, still no lift.

Oh, I was promised delivery in two weeks.  Then it went to four and then the free goodies were offered….a roll-around oil change pan, an ATV lift….anything to keep me on the hook.  Every time I called, I was placed on hold, sometimes for 20 minutes or more.  I left voice messages with no returned calls.  Today, I had enough.  I called and canceled my order after finding the same or better lift right here in Minnesota, 10 miles away.  I pick it up on Monday.   I asked the girl at America’s Pride if she handled calls like this all day and she said yes.  Bottom line…these guys had my money since July 13th and oh yes, it takes 15 days to return it to my credit card.  America’s Pride sucks and I urge you not to do any business with them.  As always, my opinion!  Thanks!  LK
