Easily store your important documents and move them about your office or home with this three-drawer mobile file cabinet. It sits on casters so you can roll it around, and it features a small top drawer plus two letter-sized hanging file drawers....more
For the price this is a sufficient file cabinet; lightweight and esy to move. The cabinet comes ASSEMBLED so aside from attaching the casters it's ready to use right out of the box. The construction is sturdy and made of metal (not steel) so I suspect not fireproof ... though I hope to not find out. Handles are plastic and it does come with casters. The top drawer is great for storing supplies such as pens, small electronics, etc. and along with the first file drawer, locks. The lock itself is suffient to keep out curious family members/roomates but wouldn't hold up in an actual burglary.
Buy Two For A Great Desk Alternative!!!!
I bought two of these and now have a great looking and large functional desk. This is a cost effective alternative to buying a standard desk and is great for students because it is easy to move. To make a desk you need the following:
2 - Office Designs file cabinets
1 - closet or bedroom door from your local hardware store (pre-drilled knob hole a + for wires)
1 - roll of Velcro
1 - pint of paint or stain (optional)
Align the file cabinets at the location you want your desk using the door as a guide for alignment. Attach Velcro to bottom side of door and top side of cabinets. Place door on top of cabinets and you're done! For less than $200 you have a six drawer desk with enough space to work on.
How accurate was the sizing? Demensions are accurate
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Good quality for the price.
Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? No mfg. defects however a small dent (not noticeable) at base, possibly from storage or shipping
This file cabinet is exactly what I needed and I am very pleased with it. The only problem was that the screw holes for the casters were too small for the screws. This didn't matter to me as I didn't use them. The cabinet fits perfectly under my desk without the casters.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. good
Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? Holes that were drilled for the casters were too small for the screws.
I was a little skeptical about the quality considering the price. I was pleasantly surprised at the quality and balance of this unit. I had a much bigger cabinet recently that would tip forward when I opened the top drawer. this unit doesn't do that even with less weight in the bottom. Very happy and satisfied. Love the third drawer. Absolutely would buy another if I needed one. Highly recommended!!!

The price was decent, the size was great, I loved that there's a little drawer on top of the two big drawers. It holds a lot, but when I started to roll it to it's destination (about 5 ft away), the back two wheels came off completely, along with the brackets. So it's now sitting on the two front wheels and on the floor in the back. I couldn't put them back on because I was not about to take everything out that I had just put in...it was frustrating. I could just take the fron two wheels out, but I specifically wanted one that had wheels for ease of moving.

Please tell us about the quality of the product. Wasn't too impressed.

The cabinet looks nice. It appeared to be a good unit at first. Once I filled it with files, the lower drawer couldn't hold the weight and bent. Perhaps it was a defective unit but I don't want to risk getting the same unit again. I was over 30 days return policy. Overstock Customer Service was great and agreed to take back the unit. I returned the unit today and not sure how much I would get back.
First, I will say I have tried to contact the maker of the cabinet. It is the weekend so they are not available. I will attempt to reach them again after the first part of the week. The wheels will not attach on the bottom of the cabinet therefore it will not be a Mobile Cabinet. It comes with screws and only two of them will fit the holes that have been drilledl on the cabinet. The back wheels come with an additional plate to attach to the cabinet but none of the predrilled wholes will line up to each piece.
II really wanted two file drawers and an accessory drawer. That combo is hard so I was really excited when I found it on overstock for a great price. The great price should have been an indicator! Great idea but its really poorly made (thin cheap sheet metal, corrugated drawer bottoms, cheap handles and drawers that easily flex when locked). Not secure what so ever. It got worse, shortly after assembly the file lost one or two side caps to the wheels.

It would work but because they are on wheels I wouldn't sit on themkcforever on Oct 7, 2013
Hello cargirlrovae13, unfortunately this item is out of stock. We currently do not have inventory to check, and cannot guarantee the item will be restocked. I attached the link below to some others that might work for you. Please let us know if you have any further questions.

Thank you for contacting us cargirlrovae13. The drawers only pull out ¾ of the way. Also the drawers cannot be removes. I would suggest you remove all contents and try turning the cabinet upside down and see if the lost paperwork will move out for them.
Please let us know if you have any further questions.overstockcustomercare1 on Aug 12, 2013
