We received the bed in less than one week from the time we ordered it! Delivery arrangements were extremely convenient and simple. The truck arrived as promised and the bed was packed in three boxes so was not too heavy to bring inside. Assembly instructions were simple and very straightforward. If you put together any flat-packed furniture in the past, you can do this with your eyes closed. All of the hardware was present and accounted for, although the bolts and washers all spilled out of the plastic baggie they were in. The finished bed looks great and the vinyl does not look bad or cheesy. We are very pleased with the bed! The reasons this does not get 5 stars are as follows: the footboard has a small (yet quite visible) hole where a fork-lift clearly punctured the box. We saw this at delivery time but decided we'd deal with it. I'm hoping a dab of white silicone caulk will do it. I strongly recommend that the furniture company in Malaysia add a layer or two of cardboard to their packaging to prevent this. Also, as everyone else mentioned, the four cross-slats are just woefully insufficient.... especially for a king-sized bed. The remedy was simple... 1/2" plywood.... cut to size at the local hardware store and put on top of the slats.
