InterMetroÂ® Wire Shelves
Excellent solution and sturdy construction
We were having a difficult time finding a tall rolling cart to fit into our odd shaping closet. I decided to try Container Store's help. They sent me exactly what I needed. I ordered online and picked up at the store. The Metro was extremely easy to put together. I had it together with 4 shelves and wheels in 15 minutes. The black color looks very nice.

I have this very tight space underneath a counter in my kitchen. The space was perfect for the 18 x 24 shelf. So I got 3 shelves and the short poles the are 3.5" tall. I was so excited. I got them home ans was all set to install them when I did not realize that there was a 6" lip that stuck out from the side that prevented me from just putting this all together and pushing it into place. Also there was a strip of wood that ran across the back that made the poles to tall for the space.
I was all bummed that my idea was not going to work so I proceed to return every thing to the CS. While at the counter to make the return I was telling the sales associate that I was so disappointed that I could not use the items. I told her that the shelves were a perfect fit but the poles were to tall.
Them, OMG! She said do you want me to have them cut for you, I did not realize that this was even an option. She did preface her statement with, "we do not recommend it and you cannot return them after they are cut.
So I decided to take a chance. I had 3" cut off the poles. I figured, worse case I would just loose the cost of the poles.
Anyway, I went home with my shorter poles and SUCCESS!!! The funny part was I had to actually get the poles in back in place and get the bottom shelf in place first and place the other two on the poles and allow them to all drop and raise them to the desired height one by one. It took some work but the outcome was perfect I am happy to say. Please check it out!!!!!

High End Results
We purchased 3 shelves and 4 metro casters. Once assembled, we triple folded a piece of thick, slip resistant mat (available in the kitchen section) on the top shelf. My Boos Block fit perfectly on top! Add some baskets and storage containers, and VOILA! My butcher block cart is an exact replica of very pricey high end carts available at gourmet cooking stores. Total cost, including Boos Block and extras, approximately $250. Cost of pricey high end cart, approximately $850!

Better than boxed shelving from the big box stores
A much better product than what I've purchased in the past from large chain home improvement stores. I was able to buy as many shelves as I needed for the project. The hooks are extremely useful in adding storage options without taking up shelf space.
I also like the brushed silver finish which made for a better look in my son's room and matched his other furniture.
