Reformed Attic Storage

For awhile I have lived with lots of piles around my house because I like to pinch pennies. That meant no storage facilities because I didn't want to pay the monthly fee. Long story short, this got out of hand and I felt consumed by my stuff. In an attempt to clear my life of clutter, I have made a decision to purchase a Versalift Attic Lift (Versa Lift - Attic Storage Lifting System). I know it's not ideal for the cheap option, but it is a one time payment versus a monthly one. Plus, all my stuff will still be in my home opposed to being in the hands of someone else. I am currently waiting for this to arrive, so my question is this: Has anyone else installed one of these? I want to do it by myself, but am unsure of just how easy it will be. I'm not interested in any negative opinions, this was my choice.... Just want to know if it be more of a headache than beneficial to install it on my own. Thanks!

You will need to tell us what is up there, trusses, flooring, rafter spacing, rafter dimensions, and head clearance.

I know this will likely fall on deaf ears but the attic is generally a poor place to use for storage. If your roof is of truss construction then it is a VERY poor place for storage.
