5 days shipping time in one 7' box weighing 60 lbs, which I carried up to 2nd floor without difficulty. Items undamaged and wrapped well. Purchased on sale for around $$$ US. Solid wood structures with impressive quality. (As a teenager, I worked in NC furniture plants (now closed), and I am impressed by the quality of this system, which I didn't know was made in China until it arrived. Had I known, probably wouldn't have purchased BUT this is best Chinese quality I've seen; very comparable to US). All components including hardware heavy and well made and the latitude you have to make it fit your closet needs is amazing. My new walk-in is 84 x 62 x 28 (center door) and I was able to use shelving on 3 of 4 walls from this one system. 12" shelves enabled that, not 16". The system accommodates up to 10' walls, but plenty of diversity is available to design to fit your needs. After arrival, unpack and make a plan. Various plans are included in instructions, but don't be limited or intimidated; use your imagination and tape measure - and stud finder. Eventually, to cover 3 walls I made several shelf cuts; skill saw better than jig, as less likely to split edge. Pre-drill studs and find studs early. I used 4', 2' and 1' levels. DO NOT MIX SCREWS: KEEP IN THEIR SEPARATE BAGS, as some screws are intended only for certain hardware (size of screwhead matters). Read instructions and "dry fit" first - before making any cuts. This was a fun project on a rainy day. Did it alone in about 6 hours. Will probably order another 12" system from J.L. for my newly remodeled upscale pantry, which my old closet will become. Again, 16" shelves would have been too wide for my walk-in, as clothes take up room in center. Note: you will make some wall dings, so be prepared to touch-up with paint - unless your clothes cover the dings.....
