Item arrived yesterday and we assembled and placed it on our porch. The bubble and plastic wrap assures that there are no nicks in the item but does take a while to remove. The glider works great and is looks good as well.

I love this piece and so does my kids. It is our equivilant to a swing on the porch. It holds all three of my kids at one time. The glide is smoot. It can handle kid abuse-several times I caught my youngest standing on it. Its been holding up well in a very wet summer and doesn't squeak. It's one of my favorite purchases.

I ordered two of these for our patio. Once they were (finally) unwrapped, they were easy to put together. My husband keeps telling me what a smart purchase they were. I tend to make cushions and pillows for everything but we both agreed that these need nothing to add to their comfort. We are both tall and the seat is deep enough to be comfortable for us. I'd looked at a lot of furniture online and we are so happy that we ended up with these. One of those rare purchases you can't find anything wrong with! I guess the packaging is necessary to insure their safe arrival but it took me at least an hour to get all the plastic off. But we love the benches.

As has been noted by prior reviewers, the hardest part about putting this together was getting the bubble wrap off. Be prepared to take your time with that. It comes all assembled except for the back which is put on by two bolts. Easy. The color is as advertised. The glider is comfy enough although I would have preferred higher arm rests. I bought this to replace another glider that lasted eleven years, so I hope this one lasts as long (on a covered porch)

After reading multiple reviews on many different gliders online, I decided to purchase this one. I am so thrilled that I made that decision. As many other reviewers noted, it shipped fast and was wrapped meticulously to make sure it was in excellent condition upon arrival. It was not difficult to assemble. We love it. It is comfortable and feels durable. I love the fact that it is rather deep. I hope it holds up well and lasts for many years.
I bought this glider to replace the one which matched our table and chairs. We had left it out all winter and the squirrels ate a chunk out of the webbing, so I needed to replace it. The paint on that one was also peeling. I bought this solely based on others' reviews. They were not wrong. this is a nice glider. It just feels nice to the touch; appears very well made. The back isn't as high as my other one was, so you can't rest your head back; but I rarely do that anyway. I DO have concerns that it may come unwound/unravel after a few years (the "bamboo" material is wrapped or wound around the arms, etc.) I also agree that no pillows are required. It's quite comfortable without them. I will probably still add a few for decorative purposes; but they are not required for the comfort.
I was delighted to quickly receive this perfect sized glider style bench for my porch. Like others have said, the only "difficult" part of setting it up was removing all the carefully wrapped bubble wrap! But I would far prefer this task than having the item scratched or damaged. It took me about 30 minutes to put it together - then I relaxed and recalled years past sitting on a glider on my grandmother's porch. I am very happy with the item!
My 80 year old father recently moved in with me and informed me that he thought I should remove my porch swing and get a glider! Thus, my search began and I decided on the Maui Swinging Bench. It arrived earlier than anticipated which was awesome! The box was delivered to my front porch so it was a matter of opening and putting it together. My father and my daughter put it together and had everything cleaned up in in 30 minutes. It is a comfortable sit and the glider meets all my dads needs... room for the morning newspaper and the height is easy to get up and down. I think it should glide a little easier but that is just me. Dad loves it!
Oversize package arrive with two holes where the rear legs where showing, but luckily no damage due to the extra wrapping of bubble wrap around legs. Inside the box I found the manufacturer place extra material to possible prevent the legs from pushing through but either didn't place it properly, the box was to big, or something else. Or maybe the glider wanted to get some fresh air.
The size of the box has nothing to do with the weight of the product, which is extremely light. Putting the unit together took less than 20 minutes. The directions are okay, as you are placing only a few screws and washers and it is set up. The glider seems a little stiff to me, but my spouse says it is fine. The color is true to description. The glider does seem to get to hot to sit on if it has been baking in the sun all day, so we are covering it until someone decides its time to have their tea or mint julep. We have found in the three weeks since it arrive, that when the winds seem to be more than 18 mph, it becomes airborne. Who would figure with all those holes it would take off. So we have decided to stake it down with some old tent stakes and clothes line (that doesn't match the color) for the time being. I'm not sure if I put quikrete or sand in the legs that that would be enough to keep it from taking off. Any aeronautical engineers wanting to discuss, please let me know. We feel this is an excellent value for the money.

Buy the Savannah Green cushion if you want a cushion, but it is very comfortable without. None of the other cushions come close to the required sizing.grneyes2 on Feb 26, 2014

Hello there, is it waterproof, as I intend to keep it out in the garden all the time. Also is the wicker not too hard or uncomfortable to seat on?

It is made of a polyethylene wicker, so it should be water resistant and reviewers have mentioned it doing well in very wet weather. The reviews will give you accurate feedback on this product as far as comfort and outdoor use. overstockcustomercare1 on Jan 24, 2013
Please clarify the weight limit, you stated 240 lbs? If that's correct than two adults would be too much on the glider at the same time?deansw07 on Oct 18, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
