      That's good. If I were you, I would go ahead and file a case to get your money back.

        The huge red flags for me are the fact that the site is brand new. The domain was created on Jun 30th, 2021. And look at all of the products they 'sell' from that site. I could be wrong, but that just screams scam to me.

        This video explains how these types of scam sites operate:

            Sounds like despite the warnings and concerns, you were never planning on taking any advice anyway.

            I do not was to sound like an ass, but,...

            If you are referring to me with this statement. I do not remember asking for warnings, concerns or advice.
            The title of the thread is"Has anyone tried one of these car lift"

            and my post read
            "I just ordered one for about 50 some dollars, delivered. Hope it works like the ad shows"

            I finally got two email from the company saying the demand is causing a delay. I should get it in 3-5 days and they will give me a full refund if I do not want to wait

                If and when I get it, I will put up a post reviewing it.

                If it comes soon enough and i post a review that if you like. It may not be available at that price. But even 2 times the price it is a great buy, If it does as advertised

                It's the 10th now so you should have it. I'm inclined to think scam at this point. I'd file a Paypal claim if it was my money. I do hope you get it if you decide to hold out, though.

                  What made you decide to research this AFTER ordering it? Kinda backwards, no?

                    Probably a smart move. Good luck man - I hope you get your refund. Keep us posted. Do those lifts really sell regularly for $1490??

                      This ^^ was using all 8 rubber blocks and 4 lengths of 2 X 4.

                      What the 4 stacks looked like to get the most lift.......
