We received this mattress very quickly with site-to-store; less than a week. The boxes are heavy, but we were able to fit both the mattress and steel frame (the Smart Base Frame that I purchased separately) boxes into my compact Saturn easily and with plenty of room to spare. Once we got it into the bedroom and out of the boxes, it was the easiest set-up of any mattress and frame EVER! I recommend having the steel frame set-up and ready to roll the mattress out onto. I'd say it took us about 10 minutes in all to complete the entire set-up (frame and mattress). There was no odor of any kind on the mattress, and it opened up within seconds of removing the plastic wrap. Regular full-size sheets fit the mattress perfectly too. There was almost absolutely nothing to setting up the frame. It folds out, you tighten a few bolts on the legs, and then you just insert a few bars that are used as spacers and for additional support of the full-size mattress. And no tools are needed! NOTE: I didn't notice it at first, but there are different sets of directions for twin-size and full-size set-up. In my packet, the first set of instructions were for the twin; directions for full-size were second. The frame is very strong and sturdy, and the mattress is unbelievably comfortable (and I have a very bad back). IT LOOKS LIKE ANY OTHER REGULAR MATTRESS TOO. I bought it for my guest room, had company over the following weekend (one of whom also has a very bad back), and they raved about it and plan to purchase one for themselves. We'll see how it stands the test of time and use, but for my purposes, it's PERFECT so far, and probably will be for a long time to come (given it won't be used on a regular basis)! I would highly recommend the Smart Base Steel frame alone for any twin or full mattress, as well as the mattress alone if you just want to add it to an existing stand-alone bed frame or box spring. It well met my expectations, and the prices can't be beat!
