If you manage a doctor’s or lawyer’s office, or work in another setting with mounds of documents, you understand the value of mobile shelving. While computers and cloud-based (online) storage solutions have helped minimize paper and other physical documentation, some businesses have to have physical records of patient files, sales transactions, court proceedings, and other types of documents. Not every business can afford to rent or own separate storage space for such documents, meaning onsite mobile shelving is absolutely critical for organization and document management.
One question we often get is what is mobile shelving? Despite the name, this type of shelving is not simply shelving units with casters bolted underneath. From an industry standpoint, this kind of shelving makes up a specialized rack or mobile system that is designed to increase storage space and minimize footprint. By eliminating the need for an aisle between every shelving unit, more floor space can be utilized for storage. The key is each unit is mounted on a level track, thereby making it easier to move heavy units with minimal effort. Some mobile shelving units can be moved manually, or are operated with electrical motors depending on the size of the unit.
Some of the advantages of mobile shelving are: the ability to keep documents in one place, easier to catalog documents, and the means to free up valuable floor space. In fact, a typical set of mobile office shelving units may reduce the need for floor space by close to 50%, while offering a 50% to 100% boost in storage space when compared to other types of shelves or regular filing cabinets.
