Answer: 
Well, the true answer is NO, and YES! Casters rotate around the pivot pin, so you MUST remember that casters mounted to the legs of shelving 24" wide can potentially have casters beneath them that are only 20" apart from each other when both casters are rotated inward.
Casters bolted through the small steel plate at the bottom make the shelf ripe for FAILURE, as the casters add length to the legs, Read More
Well, the true answer is NO, and YES! Casters rotate around the pivot pin, so you MUST remember that casters mounted to the legs of shelving 24" wide can potentially have casters beneath them that are only 20" apart from each other when both casters are rotated inward.
Casters bolted through the small steel plate at the bottom make the shelf ripe for FAILURE, as the casters add length to the legs, and that thin steel plate with the hole in it WILL BEND under even moderate weight. When you roll them, if you hit a bump or an obstruction, you risk bending the legs and having the shelf collapse and tip over, especially if the upper shelves are loaded heavy. A top-heavy shelving unit on wheels is a disaster AND A SAFETY HAZARD waiting to happen.
THE ONLY WAY I would add casters to this shelving is to cut four lengths of 2x6. (2) of them should be at least 82" long, and the shorter two should be at least 28" long. you would add HEAVY DUTY caster wheels (min. 3" diameter) to the two shorter pieces, so that one of them has two static wheels with four bolts THROUGH the wood with washers and nuts on each wheel, and the wheels are aligned on the length of the shelving. The other one will have the two rotating caster wheels with four bolts THROUGH the wood with washers and nuts on each wheel.
Next you space the wood planks so that you can lay the two long board across and mate up the corners. BOLT the upper pieces to the lower pieces with the wheels, and make it solid.
Now that you have a 82"x28" dolly, place the shelf unit on top of the upper boards and center the legs. Bolt the feet of the shelving unit to the wood using 3/8" x 2" lag bolts with washers. With this configuration, the dolly will stick out beyond the shelving unit about 2" on all sides, but the casters will never fold under the unit itself. They will always be at, or outside of the shelf legs. The 3" wheels will be large enough to roll over an extension cord or other small obstruction without suddenly stopping. AVOID tiny wheels in a shop. They can be stopped by a nickel lying on the floor!
I DO NOT advise putting shelving units on wheels, but with that said, nearly every shelving unit in my shops ARE on wheels for ease of moving them around. I have made oversized dollies for all of them, and the dollies are longer and wider than the loads placed onto them. Think about 'Center of Gravity.' You want the wheels as far apart from each other as you can place them, without creating 'ankle biters.' Read Less

Answer: 
I purchased this unit and bolted to my cement garage walls. If you put casters on the bottom and fill up the shelves, (if you have children) the unilateral will fall on top of someone and crush them. This is a hard-core heavy-duty unit.

Answer: 
I have the 24" deep and 18" deep. I wouldn't bother on the 24" due to stability via twisting. But I have attached some to the 18". One side is on heavy casters and the other is set on top of a heavy duty tool cart, and the only weight is my work bench. That works great but there isn't a lot of weight and I don't move it around a lot.

Answer: 
I would not recommend it. There is a hole in the center of each leg that could technically be used for casters but it the caster would have to have about a 3" wide top in order to support the full rail, and worse I don't think the shelf would hold up to pushing/pulling with any kind of a load.

the product claims 2000 lbs per shelf, but I would not trust that. I have several hundred lbs per shelf and have had it for about two years. If you put a heavy load, you must use wood planks on each shelf to spread the weight to the front/rear rails. If you don't it will bend the wireframe shelves.

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 511 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fantastic Storage Shelves We bought these to use in a storage unit and then later in our garage / house. Assembly of the first one took us probably 40 minutes to an hour. The second two took us less than half that time each. They are very sturdy and support a good amount of weight. They are heavy when assembled. I would strongly suggest having them nearly in position once the rails for the top and bottom shelves are in. Assembly wise we used a large flat head screwdriver, a rubber mallet, and a 7/16 box wrench. Granted, I am not sure how well disassembly, moving, and reassembly will go, but so far we are extremely satisfied with the product. More review on Mooncaller Home Projects. September 10, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by From a garage mess to a functioning workspace These shelves changed my life... well, at least my life in my garage. I ordered two shelving units to help organize my out-of-control garage. I knew they would be very heavy, so I ordered online and had them shipped to my home instead of buying them in the nearby store. The delivery crew unloaded and carted them into the garage for me, beyond my expectations. Assembly was easy (did it solo) and these shelves are so sturdy that I plied all my heavy tools on them without any concern. I even went back to the store and bought a number of hooks to install along the top shelf to hold my rakes, shovels, etc. Now my garage is ORGANIZED. I can find things again and actually function in this workspace. Well worth the cost. August 31, 2016

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Heavy duty but easy to assemble storage racks These steel shelving units arrived on time in good condition. They are well packaged and not too heavy for one person to move the box one end at a time. Assembly is made easy by the tab-to-slot design. A whack with a rubber mallet (or hammer and wood block) sets each shelf into a sturdy position. The side supports are double sided (will sopport shelves on either side) so with the purchase of two 4-shelf units I was able to construct a triple wide 3-2-3 shelf storage rack seen in the picture.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Heavy duty shelves that are fairly easy to assemble Our gym teacher needed new shelves for all her equipment.

The shelf heights are adjustable. If you have a heavy duty shelving requirement, these are great. Definitely recommend. August 9, 2016

The shelf allows for other shelving units of the same model to be connected end-to-end to make for a nice clean installation along a long wall. The strength is fantastic and they are usually available at local stores making for a worry-free purchase in case more are needed down the road.
