Before I ordered, i asked if this cart required assembly. The reviews were mixed and the description stated "assembled". My question was answered and it was stated that it was assembled. You cannot imagine my surprise, when I opened the box and saw that it was completely not assembled!!! As both my husband and I are not good at assembling, we had to pay someone to assemble. He even could not believe all the parts. To make things even worse, there were parts missing. I called the number for Catskill and they sent the missing parts with no hesitation. They also stated that none of there products come assemble. I called Overstock.com and made them aware of this and have since noticed that the description has changed to assembly required. The cart is nice, but not worth the money spent to assemble.
