Delivered in 2 boxes the same day. Very good packaging. The pieces are very heavy, one of the boxes was 80 lb, I can't remember the weight of the other one, but it was about the same. It's a little difficult to put the pieces together and initially I though I'll need help, based on the previous reviews. However, I assembled it myself and everything went well, since the instructions are great and the holes are very precise on the pieces and you shouldn't have difficulties if you have more or less experience in doing this (I bought most of my furniture from Overstock and have been doing this for years). The most difficult part for me was to put the top of the table, since it is VERY HEAVY. For this you may need another person to help you. The drawers are shallow, but I like it this way. I wish the buffet was a little bit cheaper, I would definitely buy it too! An excellent quality of wood, very sturdy and solid. Highly recommended in case you are looking for high quality product in this style. I bought it to use as a TV stand.
