The product was as advertised quality all the way. Packaged separately. My dislike surrounds poor shipping cartons. the package was marked with several florescent orange stickers saying HEAVY. However, the end of the box was split open. I was concerned that one or more of the handles had fallen out during shipment. Fortunately all the parts and the packing list was there as well. If you mark a box ship in a much heavier carton or ship in smaller amounts with fedwer pieces.
