Inconsistent height may be issue for some
I agree with other reviewers that the packaging was flimsy. I also noticed some of the wires were kinked. Since I purchased these shelves to use as utility shelving in my basement, I did not feel these issues warranted returning the item or complaining. The shelves as a whole were still straight and I received all the parts. I ordered two and they were shipped from different warehouses. One looked like it had been opened and was a return. Zip ties were cut and the black clips were all over the place. I'm surprised none of them were broken! The second shelf I received had everything wrapped in plastic. Despite the better packaging, the product itself broke through the box.
The reason for the 3 star review is the inconsistency in the product. For one shelf, the support rods screwed in so there was no seam. You couldn't even tell there were 2 rods. For the second shelf, the connecting hardware was a little different and so there is a gap where the rods join. It doesn't seem to affect the function, but I'm not putting really heavy items on these shelves. Another issue is the heights are different, and it has nothing to do w/the adjustable feet! One shelf is 71" tall and the other shelf is 75" tall! I bought these shelves for the basement, so it's not such a big deal to me cosmetically, but it created an issue where I had to tilt the shelf, shimmy it under a pipe, and have the top rods straddle the pipe.
Overall, I don't regret purchasing the shelves. The shelves are comparatively priced low for the size, and they are fulfilling their function. If you are purchasing to use in a more public area, I would stick to buying locally so potential issues can be resolved more easily. I did not have the hauling capacity or strength to purchase similar shelves locally, so having them delivered via AlumiGogo was my best option. I opened the boxes in my garage and carried the pieces in separately.

A practical Solution
We built a walk in pantry/mudroom when we did an addition a few years ago. Havent been able to bring myself to spend 5k on cabinets to finish the room, so I didn't. I chose this as a solution instead and have received several compliments on it as a practical solution.

Bent selves. Poor packaging.
Packaging was falling apart. One of the selves was bent. I would return it, but it's too heavy, too big, and too much of a hassle.

Wire Shelves FTW!
These wire shelves are the best shelves ever. Super easy to put together, very strong and stable.

This is a great shelf to order. I bought this for storing my storage bins. The parts are top notch...there are no tools required to assemble this. This unit was very easy to put together. I would buy more of them if needed. No regrets on this purchase...highly recommend..

Poor Packaging - Probably a previous return!
These metal shelves are great for storage rooms. We wanted to get organized, and this was a great way to do so; however, when the box arrived, you could tell it had been taped up and possible repackaged. Upon opening the package, the pieces were scattered throughout the box and parts were not in the bag provided. The bag was torn and some of the clamps were placed on the bars, like someone attempted to put it together and then ended up with broken clamps and just returned it. The shelf was too large and heavy for us to be able to package and return, so we just put together what we could (we weren't able to put the top shelf on since the clamps were broken. There was no instruction manual or documentation in the box and 8 of the pieces/clamps were broken to the point of being unusable. It is disappointing that this item came from AlumiGogo, as we have always had good results from AlumiGogo, but this definitely was not the case with this item!
