With a large selection of mail sorter modules, there are many different choices to make regarding what type of mail sorting cabinet to buy. Choosing mail sorting cabinets that are safe to use, easily adjustable, and designed for accuracy and productivity will provide years of use. Understanding the differences between mail sorters before your purchase will help you make a better decision.
Mail Sorters Must Be Safe, Flexible and Adjustable
- Choosing a safe mail sorter. One trait of sorting mail is quick hand movements. Some sorters are made of thin steel. Steel sorters seem to be a wise choice until your hand accidentally hits one of those shelf edges. Ouch, that hurts. Sharp metal shelf edges and quick hand motions don’t go well together. With StoreMoreStore sorters you won’t find any blood on our shelves or bandages in one of the sort cubby’s because our shelves are made of strong, durable 1/8″ thick polyethylene specifically design for safe mail sorting.
- Choosing a flexible mail sorter. Mail is a constantly changing business. People come and go, and those darn envelopes and packages come in all different shapes and sizes requiring mail openings to be adjusted from time to time. To adjust most sorter shelves you need to be an engineer equipped with a level. Really, lining up eight shelf tabs in those itty-bitty slots? Once you accomplish adjusting one shelf you will feel pretty proud of yourself until you notice the shelf is crooked. It’s not hard to get to a shelf crooked when the slots are on 1/4″ centers. Well, we think differently at StoreMoreStore. Our shelves are easily adjustable on 1″ increments. Shelves are fully supported along each side of the shelf to hold up to 35 pounds per shelf.
- Choosing a labeling system. Labeling system? What does that have to do with mail sorting? Duh, like everything!!! Most mail sorters are designed to use the same labels you use for your file folders. You know the white sticky ones that fall off when you want them to stick and stick when you want to remove them. Our sorter shelf labels are 10-5/8″ wide by 7/16″ spanning the entire length of the shelf. They are safely and securely positioned behind a clear snap-on plastic protector. Changing labels is a snap. We have colored labels available to identify different type of materials or for high activity mail slots. Using colored labels increases speed and accuracy when sorting materials.
- Do you need options to make your job easier? We have optional products to make your job easier, like drawers that slide into mail sorter slots. These drawers are great for storing rubber bands, paper clips, pens, markers and other supplies commonly used at a mail sorting station. Other options include roll-out waist high work shelves, doors, and shelves for binders or other materials.
We hope that this information helps you make an informed decision when selecting mail sorters and mail center equipment. Oh, we almost forgot our sorter modules look nice too. They are available in a wide choice of finishes. Shop for freestanding or desktop sorters with confidence at StoreMoreStore, knowing that our mail sorters are quality products backed by a Better Business Bureau A+ rating.
Adjustable Mail Cart For The Modern Office
The U.S. Postal Service has been raising the cost of postage every year since 2006. But that’s not stemming the tide of mail that floods the typical large corporation every weekday. If you’ve ever worked a mailroom, you know that 25% or more of the mail that shows up at your office is junk addressed to folks who have long since left the company. But that still leaves a huge amount of mail to distribute. Some companies let people pick up their own letters and packages from an assigned slot in a central mail room. However, having a mail clerk make the rounds has some advantages too.
Everything from legal documents to privileged industry data may be sent to your company in the mail. Making sure these letters end up with the correct person is critical for maintaining confidentiality. Speed may also be of the essence even for letters that aren’t clearly marked as highly important. For example, getting a utility bill to Accounting in time for them to go through the 2 week process of cutting a check could keep your company from having its electricity cut off. A mail clerk can also collect outgoing mail to speed it on its way to the post office.
We recommend Luxi-Flex mail carts for distributing and picking up mail in corporate facilities. To figure out which cart configuration is right for your company, take into consideration how often you need to handle large packages. Wire baskets that accommodate hanging files are great for keeping mail organized for easy distribution. But you may need a platform for bulkier items. If you require employees to sign for their mail, choose a writing surface as an add-on option. The nice thing about these mail carts is they are completely adjustable for flexibility. Upper mail shelves can be adjusted or removed depending on the task at hand.
Each of the wheeled mail room push carts in the Luxi-Flex collection has oversized inset non-marking rear wheels. These let the user move easily through crowded work areas and manage bumpy surfaces with no problem. Since these StoreMoreStore platform and executive mail carts are intended for daily use, they come equipped with bumper molding to prevent dings to wallsand other surfaces. Comfortable foam covered, height adjustable ergonomic handles will help reduce hand and back strain even when the cart is fully loaded. Best of all, they are made in the U.S.A.
