My husband and I bought our first house, and the master is too small for most of our furniture, so, we got this storage bed and axed our 2 big dressers. It's big, so, while you can assemble smaller sections in another room, put the bed together in the room you want it in!! Ours was shipped and received quickly (in 3 awkward, big, and heavy boxes!) and nothing was scratched or broken. Instructions were clear enough, but it takes a while to put together--my husband spent a few hours for 2 nights to do it, but without a hitch. I helped him with the actual bed assembly b/c it's a lot easier with 2 people. Anyway, we've been sleeping on it for a few months, and we have no complaints: it doesn't squeak or creak and all the drawers work great (and they're huge!). I do recommend putting a sheet or a thin piece of plastic or wood under your mattress to protect the top drawers at the head and foot ends of the bed as if your mattress doesn't cover completely the top drawers aren't entirely covered. Also, if you want real wood furniture, this isn't for you; for what it is advertised to be it delivers very well!
