I ordered my box in February & was given a month to pay. After payments delivery was done about 2 week after (only because of the long holiday weekend).
Prior to delivery, I received email updates about the status of my delivery.
Delivery was very easy! The box was literally delivered at my office door.
Now to my box! Unfortunately I didn’t remember to snap a pic with my box but I was just too excited to open it.
