I did a lot of research for this specific type of platform bed and this site was in my budget and made of all metal. My husband and I are active ppl and have many issues in the past breaking beds. He is a bit hefty and is 6'4. My order was shipped out very fast came right to my door. I was surprised. The directions was easy to follow. Its easier to have a second person on hand to help put it together. The only issue was that there was two screws of the wrong size [short/small] in the packaging, but we still used it and it still worked fine. I have a very heavy foam mattress which worked great. I'm excited that I didn't have to invest on a box spring!! There is a enough room to store on the bottom of the bed to store stuff on the bottom of it too. I'm very satisfied with my purchase. My bed is very solid and stable. This was my first purchase from this site. So I am willing to shop again in the future here.
