If you are debating on a stand I would highly recommend buying the stand with your cage all together. It is much easier to assemble from the ground up than to put an existing cage onto the stand. The stand is sturdy and withstands all of the crazy zoomies. It is the perfect height off the ground and offers excellent storage!
<p>Followed the directions and started with the outer part of the stand this I was having issues keeping the connectors on top to stay even after I used the zip ties took me awhile and after some frustration I got the hang of it the rest of the stand was a breeze to complete. The only other issue I had was the connectors for the stand would come apart when I was adding my XL cage with the wide loft this was a simple fix and was also a blessing in disguise because then I knew I had to reinforce those areas with zip ties. The stand is sturdy and holds up to my boys running around and pop-corning I would recommend buying a stand with your cage!</p>
Ordered my stand about a week after having the cage. I got it in about 4 days so that is pretty quick. Sure makes a difference with the cage being higher. I would recommend ordering it all together because you will need a stand if you do not have a surface the length and with of the cage. I did not like having my cage on the floor. My piggy's like being off of the floor and it gives the cage a much better look as well. It was a little harder to put together then the cage was but once I got the hang of it not to shabby. Took me about an hour to build alone, may be easier and faster with help. I did have to email for confirmation that I put it all together right and I got a prompt reply back. I love the service C&C provides.
Gives the cage a base that makes it look GREAT:)
