When most people think of mail sorters, they only picture them being used in the mailroom. Which makes sense considering that’s what they’re made for. But, mail sorters don’t have to be limited to just storing mail; there are many other uses for them outside of the mailroom. For example…
1. Store Office Supplies and Forms in Mail Sorters
There are a variety of mail sorters. Some have the adjustable shelves at the top and cabinets on the bottom (like the ones you can find here). These work great for storing a mix of forms and office supplies. Forms that are frequently filled out – medical history forms, new hire documents – can be stored in the shelves, while office supplies – pens, computer paper, envelopes – can be kept in the bottom cabinets.
2. Mail Sorters Used for Organizing Marketing Collateral
Most companies have some kind of marketing collateral: brochures, fact sheets, catalogs, press kits, etc. And mail sorters are ideal for storing it all. Why? Because you can separate everything into categories and keep it in the adjustable shelves with labels for quick retrieval.
3. Keep Product Samples in Mail Sorters
One of the best features of the mail sorters is the adjustable shelves because they can be moved up and down on 1 inch increments. If you sell a product and need to keep samples at the office, the mail sorters are great for keeping them organized.
All of these uses so far are for the larger mail sorters, but there are also desktop mail sorters. These are smaller versions that you can put on your desk to store all your documents. And because they use the same labeling system as the larger ones, you can keep everything organized and easily accessible.
These are just a few uses for mail sorters that don’t involve storing mail. There are definitely many more. As long as you don’t limit your thinking on how you can use them, you might just find a new use for them in your office!
Because deed and docket books contain important records, county clerks office’s maintain them for long periods of time. But storing deed and docket books in your courthouse can be a major challenge. They are heavy and take up a lot of space.
StoreMoreStore’s innovative roller shelves are the best way to store deed and docket books in your courthouse because the shelves optimize storage space and offer easy access to the books.
Unlike with traditional open shelving, the roller shelves are designed to store deed and docket books flat on their side. The openings are smaller, but they maximize the number of books that will fit in the unit.
And the reason the unit is called roller shelves is because each shelf has a set of rollers. The deed and docket books sit on top of the rollers. This way when you reach in to retrieve a book, the rollers assist you, making the book slide right out, which is essential when you are dealing with heavy books.
Features of the Roller Shelves
Below are some of the features and options of the Roller Shelving.
- Designed for Docket books, deed books, plat books, or any large document record book
- Perfect for books up to 5-1/8″ high (spine height with book on side)

Movable shelving is a great concept. Basically, shelves are stacked in front of each other on tracks so that they can move back and forth. And because the front rows move, you gain access to the back rows. What the movable shelving accomplishes is the elimination of static aisles in between shelving, and in effect reduces the amount of floor space needed for storage.
Because there are different types of movable shelving, it can be hard to know exactly which one will be right for your business. Fear not! We are here to help you determine which type of movable shelving will work best for your business’ storage needs (and budget needs).
Movable Shelving for Letter and Legal Size Files
The most popular type of movable shelving is designed for letter and legal size files. This shelving is excellent for doctor’s offices, small businesses, accounting departments, human resources departments, or anywhere that has a file storage need but not a large amount of space. (There is also a version that is made for boxes).
Also, any of these movable shelving systems can be used to store binders, office supplies, computer media, and much more. Their versatility is what makes them an extremely popular choice for a variety of office storage needs.
However, this type of movable shelving is not the cheapest. But it’s still a much more cost-effective solution than high density mobile shelving.
Instead of a solid surface, the shelves on this system are made of wire. The wire reduces moisture and dust, making it an excellent option for medical facilities and businesses that need to store electronics. Wire shelving is also frequently used in food storage applications because it can stand to be in refrigerators and freezers.
Because the wire movable shelving is very inexpensive, it’s also a fantastic solution for industrial applications. Bins for storing parts and tools can sit on the shelves along with large boxes.
The only down side to the wire movable shelving is that it doesn’t work well for office applications like storing files or small items.
Tambour Door Movable Shelving
The biggest benefit to this type of movable shelving is the tambour doors. The doors easily slide open and lock when closed to secure anything stored on the shelves. Tambour door movable shelving is the perfect choice if your organization needs secure storage. For example, this shelving is excellent for healthcare facilities that need to maintain HIPAA compliance.
Also, the shelves are adjustable, making it possible to store a variety of items in the tambour door shelving. So any business that needs to restrict access to stored items would benefit from this type of movable shelving.
Another thing that the doors do is hide stored items. This works well for businesses that need to store items while presenting a clean, uncluttered appearance.
If you don’t need the extra security or appearance provided by the doors, than one of the other types of movable shelving will be a better option for your facility.
While the movable lateral file cabinets are not technically shelving, they still function on the same concept as the movable shelving, which is why we are including them. The other reason we are including them is because they are the easiest and cheapest way to bump up your storage capacity.
Since you can just add a row of the movable lateral file cabinets in front of any stationary storage system you have – other lateral cabinets, vertical file cabinets, open shelving – you can maximize your existing space without a lot of effort.
The drawback is that these are still lateral cabinets and come with all the same limitations. But if your office just needs more space for files and doesn’t want to or can’t afford to make any big changes, the movable lateral file cabinets are the perfect solution.
We hope this answers some of your questions about which movable shelving is right for your business. But if you have any additional questions or need help, please feel free to give us a call at 1-855-786-7667.

That’s why StoreMoreStore has a range of museum storage systems that are specifically designed to protect your collections.

If you’re setting up a new office space, one thing you have to consider is storage. You’ll need a place to put files, office supplies, computer media, marketing materials, and even holiday decorations. Before you go for the old standard, lateral file cabinets, we have 4 space saving alternatives for you to consider – and a bonus 5th option!
1. Document Sorters
Usually, these freestanding document sorters are used in the mailroom. They easily store all kinds of mail and make it easy for items to be delivered.
But these sorters aren’t just for mail. You can use them to keep all kinds of paperwork organized. In fact, check out one of our previous blog posts to learn how you can use document sorters for storing your marketing collateral!
2. Rotary Cabinets
Rotary cabinets can do everything lateral cabinets can do…but much better! With rotary cabinets you get twice as much storage capacity; you can store more items (binders, computer media, and even hanging clothes); and you can access stored items much easier thanks to their spinning capabilities.
Sliding mobile shelving is just like your typical static shelving except it moves on tracks. Put rows of sliding mobile shelving in front of each other and you’ve got a double, triple, or quadruple deep storage system.
The result is an increase in storage capacity in less space, with dramatic improvements in organization, convenience, and productivity.
4. Rolling Door Cabinets
How do you take stationary shelving and turn it into a secure cabinet? Add doors! The rolling door cabinets offer you all the storage flexibility and space savings of open shelving with the security of lateral cabinets. There are both stationary and mobile options available.
You’re probably thinking, “what…how can lateral file cabinets be the alternative to lateral file cabinets?” The answer: these lateral file cabinets are on tracks! You can put these cabinets in front of any type of stationary storage you have.
What this does is use less space because you don’t have to create an aisle for access to stored items. And you can add as many rows of lateral file cabinets on tracks as you want!
You can find all of these lateral file cabinets and much more online from StoreMoreStore! And if you have any questions or need assistance, give us a call at 1-855-786-7667.
When designing your office, this doesn’t give you a whole lot to work with once you factor in everything you’re going to need – desk space, a conference area, bathrooms, a break room, and storage areas. But this lack of space can be the inspiration you need to get creative and make the most out of your small office space.
Of course the last thing you might want to think about is where you’re going to store paperwork, files, and office supplies, but these are necessary items for running a successful business, which means you have to factor them in. And one place where you can typically save a lot more space than you initially thought is the storage area.
StoreMoreStore has a variety of storage systems that will save space so you can focus your time and money on the areas of your office that are more fun and make a bigger visual impact.
Sliding Lateral File Cabinets: If you’re already using lateral file cabinets but don’t have the enough space to add more, you can just add a row of sliding cabinets. This is an extremely cost effective solution to get more storage capacity in a small office space.
Personal Storage Lockers: Many times small offices utilize contract workers or workers from home. But when they come into the office, they need a place to store their personal items. These lockers work great because they’re elegant and functional.
Mobile Flipper Door Cabinets: These cabinets work great for both saving space and ensuring that your office presents a clean, professional appearance. Because the doors flip closed, you can keep any clutter hidden away.
Pull-Out Storage Shelves: If you have tight spaces, alcoves or wall columns that are making your layout awkward, these shelves are the right solution. They’ll fit in these typically unusable spaces and turn them into productive storage areas.
Spinning Rotary Cabinets: Double the storage space, security locks, and easy operation make these cabinets an attractive choice for many businesses. They offer everything you need for storage and work well in a small office space.

When the copy machine was distributed to businesses back in the 1950s, it enabled office workers to keep copies of their printed materials. In addition, the government started expanding its regulations, requiring businesses to create and keep records.
Not much has changed in the last 60 years; employees are still printing documents and filing paper. And sadly many businesses are still relying on outdated lateral file cabinets to store all this paper.
You might be stuck using lateral file cabinets because people are usually resistant to change. But, there is a way to get more value out of your lateral file cabinets – put them on tracks.
How Does Putting Lateral Cabinets on Tracks Work?
Here’s an example: one row of 3 file cabinets is placed up against the wall. In front of these cabinets, tracks are laid down on the floor. Another row of 2 file cabinets is placed on the tracks. To access stored files in the back row, you move the cabinets in the front row side-to-side, getting them out of the way to give you access to that back row.
What Does Putting the Lateral File Cabinets on Tracks Accomplish?
Saves Space- With the rows of cabinets compacted together in this arrangement, you’re using less floor space to store the same amount of files.
Centralizes Storage- If you have a smaller storage space, putting the lateral cabinets on tracks centralizes your file storage area.
Improves Organization- Because files are stored together, your office is better organized. And frequently used files can be kept closer to employees.
Increases Productivity- Employees will spend less time searching for files in multiple locations.
Where Can You Find Lateral File Cabinets on Tracks?
You can find the lateral file cabinets on tracks from us at StoreMoreStore. We have a variety of different configurations and colors for you to choose from. And if you have any questions or need any help, give us a call at 1-855-786-7667.
