InterMetroÂ® Garment Rack with Cotton Canvas Cover
LOVE the Product - but the shipping...
Was beyond excited to receive this item. I had had a cheap plastic one that was on its last leg. I had ordered this one after much research (I run an online vintage store out of my apartment and needed it to not only hold a ton of clothing but also wanted a cover with a zipper) and waited in anticipation.
They ship this in pieces. The thing that got to me was I had 3/4 of the parts come on one day and the rest of the parts come on the day after. This normally wouldn't be THAT huge of a problem except that I had torn apart my small bedroom (clothes stacked everywhere, etc) in order to set it up and then had to wait an extra day to put the product together.
All in all - a fantastic product! The cover has been hanging on it for about 4 days now and it still is wrinkly. I am afraid to steam it as another reviewer stated that as soon as water touched it it shrunk up and was unusable. Hope the wrinkles come out!

Best Purchase of the Spring
I was skeptical about ordering this item because I had ordered not one, not two, but three different closet systems from three different companies. Each of my previous closets were too lightweight and started to show signs of stress as I hung my clothes into them. I finally came accross this item while shopping for other storage items online. I was drawn to the description because it boasted a high weight capacity.Well, I just picked up the item form our local store and I was amazed by the sheer weight of the disassembled system. I quickly had my husband put it together when we arrived home and I am so "thrilled with the size and weight " of the item. The canvas cover is strong and sturdy as well as the rack itself.
I would recommend this item to anyone looking for extra storage space. My winter coats have finally got a snug and secure home.I promptly donated my other closet systems and I am in the process of ordering another one for the few stragglers that did not make it into the first closet.
For a self described "coat junkie" this is a dream come true!

All the info you'll need to make your decision...
Since I always get as much information as I can on items before I buy them, and compare their pros and cons, I thought I would share the information I gathered with you. This review compares the Metro and InterMetro (with or without Canvas Cover) Mobile Garment Racks to help make it easier to choose between them. I inquired about both products through Customer Service at The Container Store for exact specifications, and also found that they come with a guarantee in case they donâ¿¿t support the weight you store on them. Here are the differences:
The Metro garment rack costs more because it is commercial grade - the steel is a thicker gauge than the InterMetro. The InterMetro is designed for residential use, but Customer Service stated that it is still a sturdy choice.
The InterMetro has 3 choices of finish for the frame â¿¿ Silver, Black and White. Both racks provide a chrome plated hanging rod (no matter what finish you choose), and the option to adjust and add shelves.
Neither racks provide support weight limits for the hanging rod, only the shelves. The Metro can support 800 pounds on each shelf, and the InterMetro can support 500 pounds on each shelf.
The size of the Metro is 18 in deep x 36 in long x 66 9/16 in high. The size of the InterMetro is 18 in deep x 48 in long x 77 1/2 in high. Basically, the InterMetro provides a foot (12 inches) of extra hanging space, and about 10 inches of additional height.
Iâ¿¿m choosing the InterMetro since it is guaranteed, I need the extra hanging space, and Iâ¿¿m 5â¿¿ 2â¿ (62 inches tall) so my items are not that long.
I hope this helps make your decision easier!

Garment Rack is BEST ever
We just downsized from a large house to a small 2nd-floor condo. The lower level of our building has a room for off-season clothing. This garment rack is so sturdy we can hang a whole closet full of clothes, wheel it - easily - to the elevator, down to the storage and wheel it straight in. I love that its so tall I can hang all my clothes and then stack my bins of off-season shoes on the bottom rack. A whole season packed away in one easy trip! I was worried about the price but now that I have it, it is priceless! Easy to assemble too! Quality is excellent. Sturdy and moves with ease.
