I ordered this bed on a Friday and received it on the following Thursday. It arrived in just two boxes: one flat and tall containing the head board and foot board, and one long box containing the actual bed frame. Both boxes were very easy to carry. The actual frame has 3 different size settings so if you need to use it in the future on a bed smaller or larger than full you can, (without the head and foot boards). It was very easy to put together and fit together solidly using just the included allen wrench, screws and washers. The only slight complaint I would have was that the color (I chose the walnut) seemed much lighter than the photograph online and was more of a dusty matte dull brown. I do like the color, it just wasn't as dark and not as close to black as the picture suggests.Overall a great product. It's in line with or cheaper than other bed frames out there, and looks great!
