I need assembly assistance.

Max & Lily® furniture requires assembly and can certainly be self-assembled. Two adults are recommended for self-assembly. Time and effort for assembly varies depending upon which bed model you order (i.e. a simple twin bed is quick & easy, while a triple bunk may take a while longer). Max & Lily® furniture ships with detailed assembly instructions and all of the hardware needed. A hex wrench is included, but you may prefer to use a screw driver or power drill. Power drills should be set to a low setting to prevent damage to the wood or strip any cross dowels, bolt nuts or metal inserts.

If you'd like to view the instructions prior to delivery, all instructions can be found here on our website.

If you need further assistance while assembly your new bed, please chat with us or email us at

Can I change the configuration of my bunk or loft beds to accommodate changing needs down the line? For example, make the bunk beds into 2 separate beds or move a ladder from one side to another?

All regular height Max & Lily® bunk beds can be separated into 2 individual beds, but low bunk beds cannot be separated. Ladders & slides can all be moved to different parts of the bed depending on what works best for your room. If you need any assistance, our customer care team is happy to help!
