Delivery by USPS was an issue, as was putting a flawed product together easily.

I ordered this Suncast Outdoor Prep station for Father's Day for my husband. I'll do anything to make life easier for him to provide me with all the BBQ I can eat. This looked like a great place to put his BBQ accoutrements on.
The back resin panel has a pretty deep crease. I don't know if it was because this was shipped USPS, and USPS doesn't deliver -except to cluster boxes, and there was no way this 2'x3' box would fit in anyone's cluster parcel box, so the mail lady called us to come get it, it barely fit in her car and it's many mountainous miles to the post office. So, was the crease from the warehouse? or the schlepping that had to be done when this large item was given to be delivered with the mail? The creased spot was where 5 "blocks" have to fit into 5 rectangular receptacles and with the out of shape block, you could get 3 or 2 but not all 5 into place. It was the back panel, so it's kinda important. Using our many years of "File to Fit, Paint to Match" training, we (both husband & I) managed to force it to fit using a flat bladed screwdriver as a shoehorn. Building satellites seems easier than this "quick" snap together process.
The wheels roll very nicely, that part is great. The door closures are a resin tab that seems sketchy to me. I'll give it a try though.
This was a nice price and it comes with a pull out server that holds cutlery & cups. And the purpose for which I did purchase this for, was accomplished.
