I ordered five of these shelves. Every single one of the boxes that were delivered was damaged and open upon arrival, with parts falling out of two of them. One of the boxes was apparently so badly damaged that Federal Express did not even leave it at my house; they returned it to Walmart, of their own accord.
All the particle board shelving was damaged on the corners due to the boxes being open.
Overall, it was not a complete loss, considering the price paid, but I was most definitely very disappointed in the condition that the merchandise arrived. (see pictures)
I tried at least 8 times to upload photos, but was only able to upload successfully one photo. Keep getting a Gateway timed out error - 504. So, disappointed in this review site also. :/
Upon delivery, the packaging had me worried, the boxes were torn and re-taped. I just knew there would be damage but turned out everything was fine. The instructions are very limited but the average person can figure it out. One person can put it together (like I did) but two would make it easier. I will order more if I need them in the future.
Thought it was too good to be true for such a great product at such an inexpensive cost. It arrived on time - the box corners/edges a bit mangled due to the heavy weight. This concerned us and after opening, some corners on the board shelves had broken off. We considered returning it, but after assembly, the shelves still fit perfectly and we couldn't see the missing corners. All-around, this is a cosmetically and durably sound product. Very quick and easy assembly. The dimensions were spot-on and our two shelving units fit perfectly in the garage space. It’s tall, it’s deep, and it's beautiful (see photo). Definitely buying more! Way to go Walmart!!
I ordered two of these as they were being advertised all over the internet for the sale they were having. BOTH boxes arrived opened and crushed. Fedex quickly left them at my front door and ran off as I was trying to call them back about it. I couldn't believe they would be delivered in such condition!!! All of the shelves were destroyed on the sides and corners. Pieces of the shelving unit (crumbles) were falling out of the sides.
I was very excited ordering these, and now am just frustrated and upset. They are VERY heavy to move, so bringing them back anytime soon... yea. TERRIBLE TERRIBLE TERRIBLE product and TERRIBLE quality control.
I got 2 of these recently to help organize my garage. Put it together solo, easier with 2 people but not neccessary. If you've ever put one of these types of things together there is a much easier way to assemble it than what is listed in the instructions. Anyway, they go up fast, have a huge amount of surface space and it is easy to customize your shelf size.
I saw a few complaints here about weight capacity. While I do not intend to stick 800lbs on each shelf and see if it holds, the unit is very strong and stable. I do have at least one shelf holding about 350lbs of plate weights, with no signs of bowing or stress. For people who complain about strength, of the lack of center support, they probably assembled it wrong. Each arm that holds the shelf up HAS A TOP AND A BOTTOM. This is not specified in the instructions. If you accidentally install one of them upside down, the shelf strength is decreased. If you accidentally install all of them upside down, the shelf will sag under 50lbs. It is VERY easy to install them upside down by accident if you aren't paying attention. Once everything is put together correctly: solid as a rock.
I ordered three of these and yes they are heavy so the boxes did come beat up but nothing to cry about. For us girls easily assembled these with a rubber mallet and some patience. They are well made and the price is fantastic! My garage is so neat and tidy that every time I drive in I smile!
I love these, not only are they huge but very sturdy, as you can see in the pictures they hold lots of stuff...and also excellent price on the roll backs.
1st of all, I agree to it being heavy, but if the shipper/handler treats it well (like they did mine), it arrives fine and in a manageable way. I put it together by myself in about an hour or less. It was simple and can't believe how well this thing is made! The wood sits flat and snug. No tools required except to tap the ends down (way easy). I still don't understand how they ship it for free. It says 102lbs shipping weight, but mine said 82lbs. Anyways, buy these non stop until they run out! You will not regret it! PS, the photo provided was done today after I put my motorcycle stuff on it.
I received my order on 10/14/13... The comment I have is the way the product was packaged. First the box weighs close to 100 lbs. each, there was no strapping or hand holes for anyone to grab to lift it. I don't know how the UPS driver ever got to my front door. I know I struggled to get the boxes into my house. Secondly the box itself did not have any corner protection and consequently the corners on all the MDF shelves were broken. I don't know how this could be resolved because if I returned the units for replacement, I am certain the new units would show up in the same condition. I guess I will have to go to Home Depot to replace the (10)2'x4' MDF shelves, (3) 4'x8' sheets cut into quarters . The cost is approximately $60.00.
Again, I can not blame UPS, either Edsal or Walmart should have made sure the packaging was adequate for shipping and lifting.
Sign me very disappointed ...
I already have one of these shelves and wanted two more for my garage so I order them to be shipped directly to my home. The 1st delivery was aborted by the shipper due to package damage. They attempted the 2nd delivery but the shelves were crushed and framing sticking out of box so I refused the delivery. I contacted Walmart CS and they kindly expedited out a new delivery. I informed the CS Associate that the corrugate was inadequate for direct shipping that advising the warehouse of that might prevent further loss but when the replacement was received, it was the original packaging with the framing sticking out of both boxes and both ends of each box was open and crushed. I refused the delivery and Walmart suggested we cancel the order. IF you can handle 103 pounds per box, I recommend trying the Store to Store delivery (Assuming it would be in better shape however, I have no way to transport that weight so won’t be ordering this product further through Walmart).
Needed an inexpensive free-standing shelf set-up for my antique radio collection. These shelves were the best alternative to very expensive units or taking alot of time to build my own. These look decent and are extremely easy to assemble. GREAT VALUE !
Like almost everyone else who reviewed this item the product itself is awesome but the packaging could definately use some improvement. Item was delivered in a damaged box. A few of the shelf corners were crunched. None of the metal pieces had any type of paper or plastic protecting them. resulting in some minor scrapes and scratches in the paint from the pieces shifting during shipping. (There is no internal packing materials at all, just pieces in a box) Some metal pieces were sandwiched inbetween two of the shelves and left impressions in the shelf that was sitting on top of them. On a good note, the shelves themselves are very easy to assemble. The shelf with the indentations was flipped over for use, and the minor scrapes in the paint were in areas that were not noticable when unit was assembled. Bottom line, great shelves at a great price and easy to assemble...as long as you don't plan on using them for anything other that storage and don't mind the few bumps and scratches it aquires from the poor packaging.
First of all, I used the "ship to store" feature to order this shelving unit....It was delivered to the wrong store! Second, the box it came in was completely beat up, torn up, and had several openings in it.....Most of the metal posts fall out of one hole as I took it to my car. Once I got it home to build, I found that the wood (around the edges of each shelf) had left particles all over my car and the box it came in. As we built the shelves, we were happy to see all the parts were still in the box. But, as we built it, the wood continued to shred around the edges and break off in our hands as we installed each wood shelf.....Needless to say, I am very disappointing in this product and the lack of care taken during shipping.
I had this product delivered to my home. The UPS guy leaned it against my garage, but the box was open and a lot of the shelves were damaged. Luckily, all of the parts were in the box.
The shelf is extremely easy to put together and it was the perfect size that I was looking for.
However, the particle board shelving came very damaged. The wood is crumbling in the corners and one of the boards was cracked badly. Because I planned on using this to store random junk in my garage and because it was a very inexpensive shelf, I kept it. (Not worth the hassle or carting back to the store). But, I would not recommend that anyone purchase this shelf.
Great Price for how big this come, way bigger than expected about 6 feet tall with a good width. I put together myself no tools needed, I am 4'11" female and it can be challenging doing by yourself, better if you had another hand to help. The most difficult part for me is the placing of the wood shelf, it had to come from above to be placed down and with a bit of weight. I used a step stool ladder so it helped and worked out for me. The quality is not the greatest on the wood it came some chipped on the corners but for the price you get what you pay for. The metal also on two out of 8 I guess was slightly bent although I didn't need to use any tools to re-shape it, it gave me a bit of a hard time lining it up properly. This comes heavy weight with all the metal bars so when getting ready to open I suggest slowly place down to avoid chipping the wood because there is no support or foam to separate metal with the wood. Also I suggest install closer to where you plan to place it because there is no plastic "thing" that you can place at the bottom of each post so when I had to move it against the wall, metal screech on the floor and may scratch as well depending on what floor you have. This is my second purchase and much cheaper than the first time with it on sale for $59.00 you can't beat that. I highly recommend it great for garage use.
I have purchased several heavy duty shelf sets over the past year; most have been quality units at quite a discount. Relative to these shelves, the others are far superior. With these units, you almost need three hands in order to get the second tier installed, and the entire unit remains unstable until all of the shelf boards are installed.
My two units arrived missing four of the framing rails and four of the end pieces were missing the brads necessary to install the these rails. I called the company and they were quite accommodating and promptly shipped out the missing pieces.
The bottom line is you get what you pay for: if you want a quality, heavy duty shelf set, this is not the one to buy-- spend the extra $$$$s and buy quality brand. If you are looking for some 2'X4'X6' shelving and your budget can't afford the first tier shelving pricing, then these units will probably meet your needs.
I have no complaints about the product itself, but ordering it online, you deal with Edsal, not Walmart for any issues. I ordered these for a surprise for my boyfriend and the package came missing well over 10 parts. So much for a surprise! I called the phone number they give you to Edsal, they said they would ship the missing items free of charge....2 weeks later, I got SOME of the missing parts. I am still missing 8 parts. I have called their customer service number, you never get a live person, you leave a message to get a call back. It is 3 days now, no call back. I would only purchase this item IN a Walmart store that way you can return it and deal with them directly.
DO NOT PURCHASE! This is of POOR quality made with bagasse board. It came damage with the bagasse board shelling apart.
Exactly as described! Great for garage organization! Would recommend and buy again!!
Arrived ahead of schedule. Strong shelf system. Easy to assemble.
