Builders Surplus Vanity Installation

Picked up a bathroom vanity at Builders Surplus in Santa Ana, CA. After unboxing, I noticed blocks of wood were stapled to each the bottom of each vanity corner (most likely for protection during transit).
Curious to know the best way to remove the stapled blocks of wood at the base, I contacted that manufacturer and was suggested to use a screwdriver. Since I didn't want to gouge up the base of the vanity, I just used a select piece of wood and a 8" nail ripper. I placed that the base of wood across as much of the vanity base as possible and used the nail ripper to life each block of wood. Removing the block required a bit more force than I expected. As I removed each block, I felt that I was going to crack the base of the vanity, but with the plank of wood as support, everything worked like a charm.
