Varikennel has been a trusted name in dog crates for years, so when I decided to purchase a new set I wanted vari kennel. The design is slightly different then the old ones but still what I expected. My first set arrived in sub zero temps and appears the delivery person dropped them on the corner literally shattering them. The second set arrived intact. A good crate for a decent price.
I am in agreement with another reviewer who said this crate is made with a thinner plastic than an earlier model owned. Same is true for me. Same brand but not the same product. I definitely would not ship my dog in this crate by air. For my purposes it's fine as I will be using it in my bedroom and not moving it anywhere. I wish the top were flat so I could use it in place of a nightstand but it's got a molded bump smack dab in the center of the top of the crate. If I had seen this in a store I probably would not have purchased and paid the extra money for something more durable. I didn't want to deal with returning this large item and paying the extra shipping costs to return it so I'm keeping it.
