This was delivered within a few days via regular UPS/FedEx delivery, not via freight since it weighs in at less than 25 pounds. I assembled it fairly quickly, but it could've been quicker if I didn't try to be lazy. Instead of taking the mattress and boxspring off of my basic frame, I just scooted them out of the way. This caused me to spend 15-20 minutes cursing trying to get the holes to line up. Once I gave in, and emptied the frame, it went together fairly easily. This is because I was able to squeeze the sides together by an extra 1/4 inch or so to get it to line up. Please note however, that for the standard "comes with your mattress" metal frames, the vertical holes don't line up with the headboard. So instead of being held together with 4 screws, it is held together with two which is plenty adequate. Over all, for the price it is a good value, but it is not going to win any awards for heft or construction.
