Busy offices require organization, and mail carts make it easy to transfer large numbers of files and documents from one location to another. They come in several styles and sizes to suit the needs of any size office, with features that make them versatile tools to have around. Shoppers at Staples® can find a wide array of carts from companies such as Safco® and Fellowes®.
Shop Features That Improve Work Efficiency Many mail carts come with high side walls that make it easy to store hanging file systems. This allows you to store it near a desk, keeping important papers and documents close by for work when file space is lacking. Some have bottom shelves that hold larger items such as shipping boxes, books, and binders that don't fit in the top compartment.
Having handles on both sides means you can pull or push it from either end, which is beneficial when working in narrow spaces. Ergonomic grips improve comfort, particularly for those who use a mail cart regularly. Caster wheels work well on multiple flooring types including carpet, concrete, and tile, making it moving around seamless and efficient.
Save Space With Collapsible Mail Carts For those who have little storage space, but still have the need for a cart, consider a model that folds up flat. They have a pop-up design with a sturdy, interlocking frame that can bear significant amounts of weight, but take up little space when not in use. They come with steel frames and either steel wire or plastic baskets that can hold several hundred pounds.
How Many Files Can a Mail Cart Hold? The number of files a cart can hold depends on the size. Mini carts that have a 14 or 18-inch basket can often hold up to 75 legal files while full-size carts with a depth of 36 inches or more can hold 150. If you work in an office that handles a small number of files, a mini cart is a good option. Larger carts work especially well in busy corporate and legal offices.
What Are Some Uses for Mail Carts? While many companies use mail carts to hold files or move shipping boxes, they come in handy for a multitude of other purposes. Libraries use them to return books to their proper shelves, and mail departments use them to sort out letters and packages to ensure they reach the right recipients. Some people use them as an alternative filing solution or to hold documents that are regularly used in an administrative office. Busy shipping departments can use them to hold commonly used packing supplies such as envelopes, sealants, and labels.
What Is the Maximum Weight Capacity of a Mail Cart? Many models can accommodate up to 300 pounds of files, boxes, and books, though it depends on the model you choose. Smaller carts can often hold 75 pounds, but it's important to read the manual that comes with the unit to ensure it can stand up to its intended use.
