Please keep in mind this crib has only been in use for 2 weeks, but...so far, so good! It went together without any frustration. It is easier with 2 people, but could be done by one. The hardware is hidden, and I like that for safety reasons. It's super stylish and doesn't have that cookie cutter crib look. The crib was packed securely and we had no damage issues to deal with. It was in my NY home from CA within a week. The ONLY issue I see so far is that because of it's shape and style, it's going to be hard to sweep under. The profile is low to the ground, so a vacuum will not fit under it. It's going to be a hands and knees cleaning job. Small price to pay.
