Thursday, November 4th, 2010

Mobile Paper Carts & WorkstationsPaper carts are an important part of daily operations in many different businesses. This may be a printing press, a school or even a copy room. Making paper easy to move, transport and carry can be very important. With several different options out there, how do you know which type of paper cart to get? Here are a few tips that may put you on the right track!

Best Features To Look For In Paper Carts

  • Amount Of Trays – Make sure the paper cart you get has enough trays to handle different stacks of paper (if needed) Some paper carts come with multiple trays, where others have a large shelf where you can place multiple stacks of paper. This is a matter of personal preference.
  • Size Of Trays – Get the measurements of the tray and make sure it will hold your paper. Most paper cart trays are designed to hold at least an 8 ½” x 11″ sheet of paper where others are Mobile Paper Carts from ABC Officedesigned to hold large sheets of paper.
  • Cart Weight Capacity – Make sure your cart can hold the amount of weight required. If you will only be carrying paper, this usually isn’t an issue. Many people, however, also use a paper cart to carry a binding machine, paper folding machine or other piece of office equipment.
  • Casters – While all paper carts have casters (wheels), the caster size can vary. I have found that the larger the wheel, the easier it is to move.
  • Material Makeup – Paper carts are available in metal and plastic designs. The style you choose depends on preference. The metal carts will be a little heavier, but will hold up well over time.

These are just a few tips that you will want to take into consideration when shopping around for a paper cart. You can find our entire selection of paper carts here.

Office FurnitureABC Office is please to introduce a new line of office furniture. The furniture is designed to help purchasers, on a budget, find new furniture they can afford.

Hours are spent in the office, often staring at a computer screen. Because so much time is spent in the office, it is important that the environment is tolerable. Many workers still sit in front of cold, dreary, World War II era military surplus desks. When employees are placed in a more pleasant environment, they will be more productive.

Budgets can often be tight. Purchasing managers are expected to do a lot with little money. has heard these concerns and is pleased to announce a new line of European inspired furniture. These desks are designed not only to look good, but also save space while providing functionality. These desks can hold a computer, monitor, printer and more. There are several models, colors and styles to choose from.

Along with a workstation, or desk, a comfortable chair is also an important part of maintaining a good working environment. Older chairs can lose their support, and some models don’t provide enough support. This can lead to back problems and other aches that divert attention from the work at hand. Height adjustment, mobility and back support are very important. It is also recommended to always keep your office chair adjusted, so the computer monitor is at eye level and a full arm’s length distance away to prevent eyestrain.
