If you’re choosing a desk for a home office or cube farm, you might think you won’t get much use out of the wheels. However, having wheels can be useful for all those times when you need to add a new monitor, re-arrange desks, move to a new part of the office, etc. Since wheels don’t compromise stability (much), it’s worth considering the option.
Full-size standing desks are heavy – usually over 100 lbs once loaded. If you ever want to run some new cables or move the desk a few feet to the left, wheels make that a lot easier. Nearly all standing desks with wheels have a locking mechanism, and stability isn’t compromised.
Desks on wheels are much easier to move. Choosing a standing desk on wheels would be particularly useful for offices that tend to move workers around every so often. A desk on wheels is much easier to push down the hallway and might be the difference between moving your own desk and having to wait for the office maintenance crew to move it for you.
