Not sure why it's called a "filing pedestal" when it's a filing cabinet on wheels, but it arrived in a timely manner. It was fully assembled except for the casters, which I really appreciated. My only complaint is the lack of pre-drilled holes on the bottom. There is a set of two per corner, but there are four screws that need to be attached per caster. I was told by customer service the expectation is for me to use a drill for the other two holes. If that wasn't bad enough, the two pre-drilled did not align properly. I don't recall seeing "drill required" prior to ordering this product. I'm in talks with customer service for some type of appeasement for an obvious lack of quality control on their end. Wish me luck!
