It only took about twenty minutes to assemble. If you've assembled furniture before, you should be able to knock this out no problem. The boxes these come in (I ordered two of these, but they arrive in one box each) are big and heavy. One of them had very minor damage to the contents because someone was using the plastic straps to carry the box around. This is despite clear indications that they should be using a hand truck, or two-person carry. It turned out to be okay because the damage was to the back of the top shelf, something I'll never see. These shelves are particle-board, but they're thick. They're made by Bush for the office setting. I typically despise particle-board furniture because after about 10 years, you have to toss it. I'm inclined to believe these shelves will last longer due to their beefiness. We'll see. Many have mentioned they needed two people to assemble these shelves. I found them quite easy to assemble by myself; however, the instructions were picture-only. If you take the time to lay everything out on the floor and make sense of each step, I think you'll be successful like I was. I have no complaints about the quality of this bookcase.

I ordered 2 of these.....although they are very heavy to move from outside my front door to my library, they are a great product. I've had several people comment on how beautiful they are.

The quality blows away many of the other self-assembly shelves. It is well constructed, heavy (which I view as a plus), and I love the finish. The only reason I took off one star is that eventually, the doors (added a "Series C: Half Height Door Kit" kit) rub on the bottom. I believe this is the fault of the cabinet eventually flexing some due to it sitting on fairly plush carpeting. Initially they were fine.....and the doors haven't changed. I can push slightly on the cabinet and change if / how much they rub, but it's not bad, and I think if it was on a firmer surface, they would be fine. Overall, I'm still VERY happy with my purchase.
Wow is this thing heavy. Comes pre-damaged for your enjoyment!

This thing weighs more than my 2-piece sectional couch!! On the pallet its 225lbs. Requires 2 person lift! Was lucky the truck driver lent me a hand.

This bookshelf was overall pretty easy to put together. It took about an hour total between my husband and myself. Definitely worth the work because it is a very solid piece and looks more expensive than it was. Got it in the darker brown color, "Mocha Cherry". Color swatch online was very true to real life. Looks rich and elegant. Beware- if you're doing it on your own, it might be tricky because it is SO heavy. It took two people to flip it over and maneuver it correctly without hurting anyone's back. I might have to get another one of these because it was such a nice find and great deal.
Theresa from YUMA, AZ– Verified Buyer
Very sturdy & beautiful piece. Was easy to put together, directions were very clear, pictures detailed & all of it easy to follow. The hardest part is setting the bookcase upright when finished putting together. Definitely have help! I'm very impressed with craftsmanship, the packing so nothing was damaged, as well as the corner protection for shipping, how sturdy & how beautiful this bookcase is. A definite great buy if you're looking for a large bookcase to last a long time.
Just buy it!

Easy assembly. Looks good. Very sturdy. Get help moving to final location bc this thing is very heavy. Nothing else to say except Bush (BBF Series) furniture rocks and WAYFAIR rocks even more for carrying the brand. Nice stuff. I own practically the entire C-Series collection in one form or another and will have it for many years to come thanks to the durability of BBF.
Looks Great In Our Home Office
Deborah from Fort Myers, FL– Verified Buyer
This bookcase looks great in our office at home and blends well with our existing furniture. It was easy to put together but you do need two people when getting started. The only issue I have is that it is very soft wood so is subject to all types of nicks and dents. Be careful when vacuuming around the bookshelf.
Suzanne from Indianapolis, IN– Verified Buyer
We had an issue with slight damage to the product. There was a deep scratch in one of the side panels & all panel corners were damaged. Fortunately the scratch is on the inside of the bookshelf and can be hidded. It appeared this had to of been done either before or during the packing process.
So far, So good!

Package is very heavy, so you may need help moving it. Shelving is packed very well inside. Color is exactly as shown on site & very easy to put together. If you're a one person DIYer, the unit is easy enough to upright & move into place, if you're careful. I haven't had it long enough to rate it for wear.
