  • Frustrated Teacher - Incomplete Product

    I purchased this unit to use in my classroom for student mailboxes. I received my order and chose to put it together in my classroom once school started. I put most of the unit together and then went to assemble the drawers... One of the drawers was perfect, but the second did not have the holes drilled to be able to assemble it! This fact rendered the drawer completely useless to me and because I have assembled the unit with glue, I will not be able to return it. In addition to the fact that I lugged this heavy thing to my classroom... I could not physically get it to the post office at this point. I am very disappointed.

  • Unit is perfect for student classroom mailboxes

    I bought this to use as my classroom student mailboxes. It has enough slots for my rising class-size and two drawers below where I put extra copies of math and literacy homework for students who lose theirs. Other teachers have commented on how handy the drawers are. I am very grateful for a sturdy and stable unit to organize student papers that I expect will last many years.

    • How accurate was the sizing? great
    • Please tell us about the quality of the product. very well-made

    Easy to put together. Very versatile in that the shelves can be moved easily and configured how we need them. The two drawers at the bottom are an awesome feature and help to keep our mailbox area neat and uncluttered. Made of durable materials should last. Since we just started using it I am only giving it four stars but hopefully I will be able to upgrade that to 5 as time goes by. We coupled this with the Safco 12 compartment literature organizer which gives us a great mailbox/forms space that looks neat and much better than what we were using before. Very happy with the purchase and the price.

  • Excellent for organizing labels and papers

    This works perfectly for what I wanted it for. I have stacks of different labels and paper that I use in my small business. It has made my life so much more organized than shuffling through stacks looking for what I need. Some mentioned the thin boards, but if you are not using it for heavy items it works just fine.

  • Just what we were looking for

    Using it for mailboxes in our 30-person office. Great fit; good construction. LOVE that the shelves are removeable and rest on pegs - don't have to relabel 20+ shelves if someone early in the alphabet departs!

    • How accurate was the sizing? Accurate sizing
    • Please tell us about the quality of the product. Very good quality
    • Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? yes

  • Perfect fit and exactly what we wanted.

    Good quality, well made and priced, just wish it came in cherry or other darker wood color for a more contemporary look. But it fits just right in our office and thanks to this piece of furniture we are very well organized now.

    • How accurate was the sizing? Very accurate.
    • Please tell us about the quality of the product. Good quality.
    • Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? Yes

  • Don't waste your money!!!

    Very poor quality, not what I expected! Some of the plastic covers that go over the edge of the shelves already broken. Shelves are very weak (I could bend it with my hands) don't think it would hold the weight it states. After a few months, I think it will warp. Structure is particle board not steel as I thought I remember reading before ordering. Overall, too expensive, poor quality for the price. Worth $25 in my opinion.

    • How accurate was the sizing? 100%
    • Please tell us about the quality of the product. Very poor!
    • Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? No, at least one of the plastic shelf cover was broken. There are some minor damages to the shelving unit itself.
