This set comes in a big box for the chairs and a flat box for the fire pit. We couldn't fit the big box in my small SUV so we decided to take it all out of the box and we could fit it all in my car that way. I found that it was all nicely packed and all parts were there unlike some other things I have purchased elsewhere. This was a great deal, because it comes with the chair cushions and pillows and the fire pit. I assembled it myself in an hour, which includes unpacking it more. We haven't used it yet to have a fire, but will probably just use duraflame logs.
