    Design Issues Solved by enabling the 3 storage units to move independently.  

    Allowing the Movable Storage Units to be completely removed from the space- gives all the needed room for future cleaning and inspections.

    The added benefit of having movable storage units in a basement type setting- where water is known to cause damage to things left directly on the floor.  With the Movable Storage Units- the size and height of the caster wheels chosen will determine the bottom shelf height distance off the floor- 2 inches or greater.

    This provides Safety to your items in Storage for low water basement flooding issues.

    DIY Suggestions
    • Be careful in choosing the height of the Caster Wheels.  
    • Too tall of wheels will cause a "Tip Hazard" of Movable Storage Unit.
    • Width of wheel is determine by floor covering- example carpet wide wheel, concrete narrow wheel.
    • Always store heavier items on lowest shelf.
    Grand Total of: 120,960 cu in  (4,480 cu ft) Minimum Storage Space created with the Movable Storage Units 


    Small:     20,160 cu in
    Medium: 40,320 cu in
    Large:     60,480 cu in


    This is like having the storage capabilities of a second kitchen.
