[...] Since I live alone the box was too heavy for me to carry so I ended up opening the box and bringing the bed inside piece by piece.I was a bit unsure of what to expect while assembling it since I did read varied reviews about the process...some said it was hard some said easy and I recall reading something about a certain type of screwdriver needed. Assembling it ended up being very easy (I'm a 45 year old female who worked alone) since I took my time and read each step carefully. The only tools I needed were flat and phillips head screwdrivers and a hammer...nothing more! I did find that the diagram in the instruction booklet was off at times which confused me a bit but not enough to throw me off completely. I did have one minor problem trying to separate the metal drawer brackets but after a 3 minute call to the 800 # listed in the instructions I was ready to continue...the customer service agent was extremely helpful and friendly. Total assembly time was aproximately 3 hours.The drawers were easy to assemble as well. I did read one review that mentioned that the drawer did not open all the way because the bed was on carpet. My bed is also on carpet but it is a small piled carpet so the drawers have no problems opening all the way. The base of the drawer is a little light weight but I think based on some previous negative reviews about that the manufacturer added an addendum to the assembly instructions which adds a support bracket to the bottom of the drawer. I have only had the bed for 3 weeks now but haven't had any problems with the drawers yet...I also made sure I didn't overload the drawers either.Since I was shopping primarily based on price I wasn't expecting to get my hopes up too much with the quality but I have to say I am pleasantly surprised. I don't think I would run out and get another one for my spare room as other reviews mentioned but I would definately recommend this product. You get more than what you pay for, customer service was terrific and it is sturdy.I read each review before I finally ordered the bed, I even read reviews from other websites as I am not too trusting. I really listened to reviews that recommended ways to help with assembly, etc...this could be why I really didn't have any problems. Once assembled one individual recommended putting a rubber mat under the mattress to prevent it from slipping...I followed that advice and my mattress stays in place.[...]Finally, the edges are extremely pointed and I banged myself once causing severe pain lasting about 2 days. This I did read about in other reviews. I have since purchased plastic corner protectors used to protect children when banging into tables, etc. So, far they seem to do the trick. Other than those three things I am happy with the bed and happy with the value vs. price.

I'm using this for a queen bed in my bedroom 12'X13'. I assembled it with no strain in a reasonable amount of time by myself(two people recommended). The images were a little difficult but if you arm yourself with patience and a logical mindset you'll get through it. I read through all the instructions first and that always helps. The drawers are big which is a definite plus for my problematic smaller room and lack of storage in there. My concerns lay at the end of the bed...the bed top is 4 sections of particle board(two small in the middle and two large at the edges) so inevitably the boards are a little flimsy and worrisome but they seem to be supported throughout by the support underneath; however, at the end of the bed there is no support and the top boards have a considerable overhang that has no support other than 3 metal braces that keep the boards from splitting up and down. All things considered this is a good bed and I love the storage and the look for the price. Its a sturdy bed minus the end so if you don't stand on the end edge of the bed or step on it to get into the bed then you should enjoy this bed. The bed as a package weighed 130 lbs so get someone to help you get it to the place where you are constructing it.

        Comments about South Shore Back Bay Contemporary Queen Platform Storage Bed Frame Only in Dark Chocolate Finish:

        very disappointing. missing pieces, pointy, sharp edges (unlike the photo which makes it look like a box style). material crumbled too the touch. Huge chips fell from the colored, exposed side of the bed. Its brand new and looks 10 years old. Horrible. Some pre drilled holes were not pre drilled, and the assembly was ridiculously complicated. Not worth the inflated price.

          Comments about South Shore Back Bay Contemporary Queen Platform Storage Bed Frame Only in Dark Chocolate Finish:

          I just assembled this bed with the help of 2 friends, it took about 2 hours. The instructions are mostly pictorial with numbers and the hardware is not numbered, so somewhat challenging, but it can be done.
          It is a lot smaller than it appeared in the picture, guess i should have checked the dimensions. I have a queen size mattress and it just fits, not shelf style like in the pictures. It can look kinda cheap, but with the bedding on, i cannot see the frame anyway.
          I have only slept on it once, but it is firm and comfortable. I have not used the drawers but they are wide not deep, so could be useful.
          I would say this is better for a single young student or early 20's that wants something affordable and with some style.
          I could have afforded something more expensive and larger and better quality, wished i had kept looking.

          Like the bed but it needs to have strips around the platform to keep mattress in place. I used 1x2 painted black screwed then to the bed. Worked great 30 min. fix. Will save someones shin.

              I don't understand why some customers put a negative rating for this product. They say it took two people to assemble this bed for over 4 hours. I hardly think that's the case as I (5'4" female) was able to easily assemble it within 3 hours by myself. The instructions were very clear and simple. It looks great in my room and I couldn't be happier.

                We wanted a bed with no head board and drawers. The drawers leave a little to be desired in that they are only 4 inches deep but they hold the extra sheets. They don't slide very smoothly. It serves our purpose and for [$], no one else can beat it and [...].If you have a queen size bed there is no extra room around the edges, which is what I wanted but someone wanting the platform look take note.I am happy with it.
