I have been wanting shelving units for my basement to store bins and large items not conducive to being stuck in closets (or in the bins), primarily holiday decorations and such. These shelves have been perfect. I can see what I'm looking for and if I need to move the shelves to better get to something, the wheels make it easy to do. (I have the unit in a basement storage area so you never know what other stuff I'll pile around it making some obstacles!) I found assembly easy, probably took about half of an hour. I was able to do the entire assembly by myself although I'm sure a second set of hands would have sped up the process a bit. In order to set the shelves into place you put little plastic pieces around the vertical poles. They prevent the shelves from going any further. Be sure to count the number of hashmarks on the poles so you have equal spacing for each plastic stopper or you will have uneven shelves. It's not terribly hard to push the shelf back up and pop off and move the stopper, but easier to do it right the first time! The unit is sturdy and I'm pleased with it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by restathome Exactly What We Needed!
Heavy duty, versatile, and simple to assemble. We needed a sturdy shelving unit in the garage and this fit the bill... perfectly. We particularly like:
- WHEELS: it’s easy to move the loaded unit out of the way to clean the floors and rearrange the garage. Two wheels lock in place. However, the poles are pre-fit with self-leveling feet if that’s your preference
-WIRE SHELVING: makes it easy to see what’s up high, doesn’t collect dust (or critters) to the extent of solid shelves, and allows for hooks and attachments. The manufacturer says the shelves are good to 500 lbs each, evenly distributed; be aware that the static load, with casters, is 600 lbs TOTAL for the unit (according to the website). The steel is not coated or painted and presumably not weatherproof. I wouldn’t trust storing it outdoors or in a corrosive environment.
-SHELF SPACING VERSATILITY: the tapered plastic sleeves allow the shelves to lock into place almost anywhere up and down the pole (although the first shelf needs to be less than 6” from the floor for stability)
-SHELF BACKSTOPS: Rare and welcome feature! The manufacturer calls them backstands, but it's great to have something to keep small items from falling off and slipping behind the shelving.
The pieces were efficiently packed (we did have to hammer out an uneven spot on a wire shelf). Assembly is fast and easier with two people; not because of weight, but to align the shelves as they slide over the four support posts.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HGTVFAN Great Heavy Duty Shelving
I cannot help but notice how this shelving unit is so much heavier than the others I have. It is strong enough for my heaviest items. It was very easy to assemble. The instructions suggested to use 2 people, but I was able to do it single handed. You assemble this unit from the bottom shelf up. I started by laying 2 assembled poles on the floor then inserted the other 2 poles. There are plastic shelf holders that you clamp on to each pole at the same level, then slide the shelf over them. After the bottom shelf was secure, I stood the unit up and standing on a chair, slid each shelf down over the plastic holders at the level I wanted. The bottom of the legs come with leveling feet. They also provide heavy duty locking casters which I used so the shelving would be easy to move around.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AHArtist Great for storage
The unit arrived in very large, very heavy box (70+ pounds) which was difficult for me to maneuver into the house, but I managed. Everything was packaged well and nothing was scratched, bent or otherwise damaged. Assembly was quite easy and only took about 10 minutes once I had everything out of the box. I didn't really need the instructions since I've assembled many similar units in the past, but the instructions were sufficient to get the job done if you've never had to assemble something like this before.
I originally thought this would go in our garage, but after putting everything together, I realized just how large the unit is and wouldn't fit the space. So I swapped this out for our existing shelving unit in the kitchen and am so happy that we did. It looks great, is plenty sturdy and has so much storage space. The back-stops you can add are also a really nice feature to keep things from falling behind the unit. I did not use the wheels so I cannot speak to their strength or ease of use, but they appear very sturdy and easy to install with the unit if desired. Overall, I'm very impressed!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Historian A Great Solution For My New Basement Storage Area
When I ordered this shelving unit, I fully expected it to come with a large bag of screws, nuts, washers, and bolts. So, I had my tools all ready when it arrived, ready to start assembling. As it turned out, the only tools I needed were my brain and hands! Included in the box, are eight pole sections, six shelves, six shelf backs, four casters, and 48 ingenious plastic tapered sleeves (plus an extra pair). Whomever thought up the design of this shelving unit is a genius! You start by screwing together the pole sections to make four legs. A little under six inches from the bottom, you place a pair of the plastic tapered sleeves around the leg. The sleeves are made to lock into one of a series of grooves that run about an inch apart from the bottom to the top of each leg. After you have sleeves on all four legs, you slide the four legs into the corner holes of one of the shelves. Once you have them in place, you stand the whole assembly upright, and repeat the process about a foot apart, or however high you want each shelf to be above the one below it until you are done. The shelf backs lock onto the back edge with no fasteners. You then have the choice of staying with the adjustable feet already installed on each leg, or remove them and replace them with the four locking wheeled casters they include in the package. In my case, because my basement ceiling is so low, I opted to leave off the casters and just use the adjustable feet. I couldn't believe how fast and easy assembly of this shelving unit was, and how sturdy and stable it is once it is done. Now, I want another one to complete my new basement storage area! Thanks HDX and Home Depot!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GetERDone Industrial shelving for a growing home
The laundry area needed some stronger than usual upgrades with the needs of the house growing just as big. This shelving unit has allowed me to maximize space and replace the existing shelf with something that I know can handle the strength unlike the old shelving unit. The unit goes together quickly and easily and adjusts to my needs. I did need assistance putting the unit together because of the size of the shelves, I would rather be safe than sorry on it. It holds the needs of the laundry room together just fine and seems to capable of handing much more than needed for now.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by OfficeManager Does Not Hold Weight Advertised
I bought 11 units 18 months ago. I put boxes of files on the units, with the wheels. The wheels on 6 units have buckled, causing the entire unit to fall over. I have a total of 450 pounds per unit. When I bought the units, Home Depot said they would hold 2100 pounds apiece. Now the website says the unit will hold 650 pounds with the casters (wheels). Do not assume these units with wheels will hold anywhere near the weight promised. I have spent over 6 weeks with Home Depot on this issue. They have promised to send me more wheels but cannot promise they will actually hold 450 pounds.

Fantastic shelving unit with a big amount of weight capacity. It has larger than normal casters that move easily. Set up was pretty straightforward, but needed a ladder to get the top shelf on. It is very tall, and roomy. Excellent for the garage or storage room. It is very sturdy with locks on the wheels. I am very impressed with the quality of these shelves. Highly Recommend.
