Arrived fast, one very heavy box (after all, it's a bed!) but no damage. They package this baby very well, with no excess of garbage but very well engineered. In the kit there is everything you need, except tools of course, but with all the hardware necessary to assemble the bed. I did that myself in one hour. The instructions are very clear and easy to follow. In the box there is even two pieces of wood cut at the right length so you know where to drill the bed to the platform.
It says you need two people to put together

I managed to do it all by myself. I'm a pretty unathletic average white girl, 5'7", with a "i can do it all by myself" complex about most things. So I put it together by myself, but it probably wasn't one of my best life choices. You really should have at least two people. Its not so much the construction that is difficult, but you have to line up the platform portion PERFECTLY with the frame and it's kind of hard to line up a massive piece of composite by yourself. Also, the little rim pieces need to be screwed in from the BOTTOM, so it would be helpful to have someone lift the bed a bit for you so that you can actually get under it enough to easily screw in the screws.
More than I expected

I accidentally bought a different more expensive version of this bed a while back. With this one I had very low expectations, LOLOL. I'm very mechanically inclined and only used the pictures to put it together when I needed them (to make it more of a challenge). It says that it takes 40 to put together, took me about 25 including a couple glasses of wine. It was perfect for what I wanted. The bed can be pulled up away from the support boards to store seasonal things you don't need. My wife loves it and the particleboard smell will fade after a night or two. I thought that with the 1/2 inch frame that is need more support for my mattress. Well you don't need it. If you wanted to, I'd recommend getting some black stain to stain about two to four inches of the boards your mattress sets on. It's not necessary but if your sheets are very tight then you'll know what I mean.

I am satisfied with this purchase. For the price it did not disappoint. My only suggestion is to heed the instructions and actually grab someone to help you. This bedframe is very HEAVY. I put it together by myself (a great reminder of how much I need to work out, mind you), but it would have been MUCH easier had I had an extra hand.. (I won't tell you how long it took me). Good quality, my queen mattress fit perfectly. Like other reviewers, I also had a difficult time lining everything up perfectly, and had some heated arguments with the screwdriver to make sure I got it all lined up. Overall, I'm happy with my purchase.

Purchased the platform bed to save the expense of a box spring. Price was right. Not sure what I expected, but the assembly was pretty time-consuming since the instructions say no electric screwdriver. Only issue in working alone on the assembly is once you get the frame put together, it becomes heavy and awkward to lift and turn. And then the final step, "flipping" it right side up is most definitely a two-person job. I purchased the Queen-sized frame and my daughter is a slight build so I'm not concerned with it handling her weight or the weight of two people. Seems pretty sturdy. I'd recommend it.

The bed came as described. I took one star off because of the ridiculous effort needed to screw in everything by hand since I didn't have a power tool. My advice is to first screw in the side mouldings into the platform B1 first instead of last as the directions say. It was very hard to screw things up versus down. I had some issue aligning the planks (and end up using the "front" where the headboard would be as my mark). Align first before you start screwing in the platform B and B1 sections or you'll regret it.
Great product, matches the description

Just received my bed. The shipping was quick, the problem was fed ex and their horrible service. Once I received the bed I put it together with my boyfriend. Took approx. an 1hr 1/2. Fortunately, I had all the pieces and no damage to the package. Haven't slept in it yet, but it was easy to assemble and seems to be pretty sturdy. It is a low bed, which is why i like it. Be careful if you have wood floors, it will scratch if your are not careful.
very sturdy, a good choice!
Reya from Dublin, OH– Verified Buyer
Great bed, very sturdy and priced appropriately. The finishing is very good and the instructions were clear as well. I read in one of the reviews that the base is not painted black and if Matress dosentb fit properly you could see and it looks very shabby. Well yes, it does look bad. We have got black cardboard sheets and fixed it so its all black now. I think one can paint as well if they have time. Overall a good choice and it gives a look of a bigger bed than queen size. Waiting for night stansd s now!!

I Got my bed quite fast and was so excited to assemble it. It's really nice after put together. Even though I gave it 5 stars the only cons I had with it was the instructions were just pictures and that made it a little more harder to put together for a woman who is putting it together by herself lol. Also it sits lower then what I expected but I have a pillow top mattress and box spring so it's perfect for me!
Lawrenz from Glen Allen, VA– Verified Buyer
The bed frame arrived according to their estimation. Building took probably 2 hours by my girlfriend & myself, who are no handymen. There's one final part at the end that is quite tedious, but other than that it went fine. After about a week, it's still sturdy, no creaks, no issues whatsoever. You get what is pictured & it is a great bed. Would recommend.
