Who Are Your Merchants If I Want To Buy Treadmills Online?

Elvis Elvis

We wanted to give you a little background on these merchants. Not all internet merchants are equal and if you are looking to buy treadmills online then a little background information is useful.

1 Megafitness. Megafitness is one of the heavyweight merchants of the internet. There are many inline treadmill stores. Megatrends is competing against all of them.

So when you buy there you can have some confidence that you have got the best deal possible. How do you know that? Because Megafitness guarantees it with a solid worthwhile guarantee.

Megafitness offer a 110% price guarantee. I quote their guarantee exactly.

“If you see any of our products offered for less by any online competitor, then simply let us know and we will match the price plus 10% of the actual difference . In fact this promise is extended 60 days after your purchase from us. It’s a promise!”

Now there are a few conditions on that, for example they don’t offer it on their remanufactured treadmills. That makes sense because it’s pretty difficult to compare one remanufactured treadmill with another because of the possibility that the competitors one may not be remanufactured up to the same standard.

If you want to read their guarantee in full then visit their website.

So it’s not likely that you will find a treadmill cheaper. If people were buying treadmills from Megafitness and then getting their money plus 10% back too often then they wouldn’t be in business for long!!

And they have been in business on the internet since 1997.

And there are a few other reasons why we have suggested Megafitness. They also offer a 30 day money back guarantee on top of their price guarantee. If within 30 days you are unhappy with the treadmill for any reason you can send it back for a refund with no restocking fee. That’s pretty good.

They are also a member of the Better Business Bureau and have been since 1999. The Bureau has certain online business standards that it’s businesses must meet, which helps cement your confidence in these businesses.

Their website is also tested daily by Square Trade to ensure buying security.

2. Smooth Treadmills. Well Smooth treadmills are one of the heavyweights of treadmills. They suggest that they are the largest sellers of treadmills online and we have seen no evidence to the contrary.

They make good quality treadmills. A little on the more expensive side, (although there are still very affordable smooth treadmills) they are good value for money as they are loaded with good features.

Smooth fitness is a reliable, solid company. They have been around a while and will continue to stick around, unlike some companies, both online and off. This is important for guarantee backup and parts.

We have suggested buying your treadmill direct from smooth. This is as a result of the fact that they are directly involved in selling their treadmills online, not just manufacturing them. You can, of course, buy your smooth treadmill elsewhere, but if you can get them direct, then why not? Why wouldn’t you buy direct from the source?

Smooth make over 90% of their sales online.

As they are set up specifically set up to do business over the net they have such issues as shipping well covered. This matters. A treadmill is a heavy bulky item which can be damaged in transit. If a company is only selling online as a side to it’s main business it may not put enough time into perfecting it’s packaging and delivery procedures. However smooth do it every day so will get it right.

They do have specials on some of their models from time to time as
well.

3 Proform Treadmills. Again Proform is a company that sells it’s own products online. This is a positive, for the reasons we have mentioned with smooth.

Proform treadmills are produced by Icon Health, the world’s largest manufacturer of treadmills. They produce many of the popular brands and are the largest retail fitness company in the world. Icon go back to the 1970′s. They now turn over more than a billion (yes that’s a billion) dollars annually.

Proform treadmills are not the best treadmills on the market. But then they aren’t the most expensive either. They concentrate on the bottom end of the market. This makes sense as the most sales are made here. Not so many people are interested in paying thousands for a treadmill.

Here they excell. They offer good value treadmills which will suit all but the most ardent treadmill user. They offer good features for the price.

We suggest that you go direct to proform to buy your proform treadmill, as we do for smooth, for the same reason. You are always better off buying direct if you can, notwithstanding that you can buy their treadmills elsewhere.

You can also, of course, buy proform treadmill parts direct from proform.

4. eBay. Well what can we say about eBay. They are just the biggest and the best. Enough said.
