I received it several days faster than expected and the shipping company called ahead to schedule the delivery. The truck arrived on time and the item was packed well, so there was no damage at all. The driver allowed a full inspection of it, said I could even totally remove it from the box if I wanted. It was on a pallet but the truck driver asked if I wanted the pallet. I said no and he said no problem. He took it off the pallet and offloaded the box to me. It was delivered by Roadway trucking in a 40 foot box truck. He was even willing to back into my driveway and offload into my garage. He was helpful and very nice. The item was easy to assemble although it took a little longer than I would've liked. You will have to mount the shelves and apply the foam padding to the inside of the cabinet. It's kind of a pain but still easy. A second person to help hold things would make it even easier but I still did it by myself. Weighs 185 pounds, exterior dimensions are 55" tall, 38" wide and 18" deep. Well built and more solid than I expected. But remember this is NOT a safe, only a locking metal cabinet. It does have a 3 point locking mechanism, top, bottom and middle. But still, any burglar can pry this thing open in a couple minutes. Kind of like a school locker, except a little sturdier. No fire protection, no water protection and no significant theft protection. I have a house alarm, good neighbors all around and a mean dog so I'm not so worried about theft, just trying to keep kids out etc. . And this is great for that purpose. Each of the 2 doors is keyed differently and each door has 2 keys. So you have a spare for each. You'll need to add some lighting of some kind, those stick-on, battery operated lights work great...I would recommend!
