One could tell the packaging had been done well but that Federal Express had totally tortured the box. It arrived with the protective corner packaging torn off and the box crunched on one end. When I mentioned this to the FedEx men, they assured me that it wouldn't affect the insides, then just dumped it and ran. I should have made them unpack the piece. The styrofoam was completely disintegrated inside. When I say completely, there was hardly a chunk larger than my hand left. The rest looked like snow. Luckily, the piece had only one small divot taken out of the top and a small chunk off the side was missing. I deemed the defects to be small enough to live with and possibly reparable and not worth packing up such a heavy piece and sending it back, but I would hesitate to order heavy furniture again if shipped through the same method.
While the scheduling delivery was a bit trick (trucking company gave me arrival window time frame between 10 am and 6 pm in the middle of the week). The desk itself is great. Putting it together was very simple. It took about a hour without any rush.The desk is sturdy and very big. I was able to sit or stand ON it. It can easily hold at least 200 pounds of weight. Looks good too. So far I'm very happy.
Very heavy solid piece. Has very thick laminate top that will work in office setting. Corners were a bit dinged up upon arrival but ones against wall so not huge issue as we need them fro the office now so no time to wait for replacement. Great desks and look good. Heavy to move around and delivery is a bit longer than other items but well worth it for the price.
