The shipping weight was given as 419 lb by the shipper. It came in a cardboard box, dimensions 92x53x10 inches, strapped to a wooden pallet; overall dimensions of the package as shipped was 100x60x15 inches. The delivery truck unloaded the package near the preferred outside door. After detaching from the pallet, opening the package, and tilting it up on one side, it was found that the leg assembly kits were in two boxes, strapped to the bottom of the playing surface. Removal of those boxes and elimination of the pallet and outside box bring the weight of the carriage and playing surface down by well over a hundred pounds. Two strong men lifted that big piece and carried it on edge through the door and placed it bottom side up on the floor for assembly. Assembling the two leg sections and attaching them to the carriage was straightforward. The same two men then flipped the assembled table onto its legs. As noted by others, there is a low-level but quite noticeable "new" smell, as though there were a pair of new auto tires sitting there. I presume this will fade over time.
