After nearly 6mos. I wasn't sure I'd ever get that feeling associated w/getting a tracking number for my ZRA, today I got it and WOW, just WOW!! 33lbs. shipped, my current chair is 45lbs+, jaw-meet-floor!
This has been the Murphy's Law of ordering experiences, if I hadn't "owned" my ordering I wouldn't have called manufactures myself for shipping dates, only to discover, oops-parts were never ordered. Countless thank yous go out to those who insisted I speak up for myself. I realized when parts weren't ordered because my DME didn't have accounts w/companies that my suspicion of being their first custom chair client was likely correct...
I hope that after all of this my ZRA will arrive perfectly, like, on a cloud w/a trumpet sounding when it hits the DME floor. I'm aware though, that chairs do not always arrive as expected, is there a checklist somewhere I can look up for things to go over before signing off? My DME has told me they regret having me as a client, I know I'm likely to smile and accept just so I don't further piss them off unless I know exactly what to measure/verify. I'm sure measuring is part of it, is a cloth vs metal measuring tape more exact? These are the pieces I'm expecting;

As always thank you for your expertise! I wish I didn't have to learn about chair mishaps from reading first-hand accounts. I'm very grateful to those who turn their frustration into wisdom for us newbies so we can avoid some of the pitfalls in this experience.
