Use it in a laundry room between the washer and dryer, in a small bath niche, a storage closet or unused space in a kitchen. The casters make it easy to pull and then roll away for storage. It includes eight dividers to organize the contents and keep them from shifting while the cart is in motion.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Useful but cheap I have a pantry where the shelves only go halfway across leaving an empty space that’s narrow and useless. I finally found something that fits. I will sometimes pull it out to grab things in the back due to the size of the pantry. It slides out fairly poorly. I slide it straight out, but when I slide it back in, it won’t move all the way back. It’s like the wheels have to do a full rotation and can’t just stop. I have to push it and the wheels don’t turn, but I can pull it back out. Luckily I don’t have to pull it in and out a lot. If that is your main purpose for this, you might want to shop around. While this items perfectly suits my needs, it advertised as being on wheels, but that feature is probably the biggest drawback. I wouldn’t consider this product sturdy or high quality. It’s plastic and super wobbly when you move it. Definitely cheap. I purchased it on sale but I would not pay full price. I wouldn’t spend more than $20 unless it’s truly the only thing that works for your space.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from stability & price The plastic is durable enough. The slimness is good but the top side covers can come off when pulled out. Easy to set up. Good price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect size! Looked everywhere looking for a slim shelving unit of some kind that would fit in a dead space between a wall and the dishwasher in my tiny apartment kitchen. The cart fills the 6" gap, acting as a pantry and storage for tall bottles that won't fit in the cabinets above. Very sturdy with no sagging and never feels like it is going to tip over.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unbeatable storage This cart has so much storage in a small amount of space! I needed really compact storage in my kitchen, and this did the job. I love it so much I ordered a second one. I can’t stop telling everyone how great this little cart is! Definitely recommend this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ready to go in 5 minutes I was looking for a storage solution for a narrow space between my washer and a wall. This cart worked perfectly for me. It was easy to assemble although no directions were provided with the box. Very light, which may be inconvenient if you're planning to place heavy items on it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love, Love, Love this cart I had a 3 tier wire cart that fell apart in the high humidity of my laundry room - so I looked for another slim rolling cart to go between my washer and dryer. This one is perfect! Because it has 4 shelves, more cleaners are off the floor than before and it was a snap to put together. At first I freaked out when I opened the box and there were no assembly instructions, but it was intuitive. There was only one time I had to take two pieces apart that I had already put together (I put the top shelf in the middle) but the pieces snap on and snap off - it was no big deal! I love this cart

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it!! Easy assembly, no tools just snaps together. I was surprised at how sturdy it actually is. Wheels are small but no problem on my tile floor. This is just what I needed to get my laundry supplies off the floor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Storage option I bought this for a small utility closet I have and it keeps my tools/pet items and other small things contained and off the floor. Great product for the price, easy to put together.
Date published: 2017-01-30
Rated 5 out of 5 by from An All-Time Favorite! This product is one of my favorite purchases of all time! Assembly is practically automatic and requires no tools, strength, or dexterity, and it is really sturdy, and easily moved b/c it's on wheels that work w/o sticking or causing topplling over. It's really slim so it hardly sticks out of the wall and it's never in the way. The shelves can accommodate tall toiletry bottles and they hold TONS of bottles, jars, cans, etc. Plus, the unit looks smart and is well-priced. I haven't one negative thing to say about it! I may just get myself another one to give as a gift.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Space saving storage solution This was a great buy!! At only $30, it's a very useful storage solution. Instead of using it to store laundry detergent, I am using it to store my numerous hair supplies. It is well suited for that purpose.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Buy This is a great product for the money. It's a perfect fit and holds multiple items. The dividers are not really needed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wish I'd bought this sooner! I've nearly purchased this cart several times and always talked myself out of it. Sure wish I'd purchased it sooner. It fits nicely, slides in/out nicely, and has really helped with organizing the laundry room. Freed up a bunch of shelf space (where detergent etc used to live) and extra storage is always a good thing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great cart! Sturdy I just bought this cart at the store after finding it online. I needed a cart to fit between my dryer and wall and only had about 7 inches. This fit perfectly! It rolls out good and fits all my laundry soaps on it. I have 2 96 oz bottles on it and a smaller one and much more. Glad i found this and this size.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Convenient and Easy to put together In an apartment there is limited cabinet space and storage, especially for pantry items. Putting them in deep cabinets means you will forget them and they will go bad before you get to use them. This solves the problem by using the wasted space next to the refrigerator allowing you to roll it out and see everything. It snapped together in less than 5 minutes. It's not meant for really heavy items. Keep it light to keep it stable and easy to roll in and out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great as mini pantry! I purchased this for my daughter's small NYC apartment when she complained of having no storage. She uses it to store cereal boxes, teas and other cooking condiments. Perfect for her as she doesn't cook that much anyway! Easy to assemble and sturdy. The cereal boxes would only fit on the top shelf so she had to shuffle some items around. Overall good investment!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love this thing I have a very small house with minimal storage options. I was using a hall closet for a lot of items to store but had everything sitting on the floor. This thing gets everything off the floor and is so slim that it doesn't take up much space at all. It holds a lot of stuff. I was very surprised. I like that it is on wheels and can be rolled around. The only con that I can see is that it is made out of plastic so when fully loaded it should be moved carefully; not because I think it can't hold the weight of the stuff I put on it, but because I am afraid it might tip over. However, I don't need to move it; it is in the closet against the wall and that is where it will stay. If anyone needs slim profile storage this is it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Storage Solution For Small Laundry Space This is a great wheeled shelf for the slim space next to my washer/dryer. It's easy to assemble and is made of thick, study, plastic.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 4-Tier Slim Cart fits perfectly in small spaces I only had 7 inches b/w the wall and the washer to work with. Since the width of this was 6.75 inches, I figured it should fit and I'm so glad it did! I like to be organized and most of the stuff that I now have in the cart had been lined up on the floor. I love that it has 4 tiers. It fit everything that I use most often. There's no instructions on how to put it together, but it wasn't difficult to figure out. The quality is pretty good. I keep my heavier items at the bottom to make it more stable. I am very happy with this product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 4-tier slim cart This has been wonderful and freed up space in the cabinets in our laundry room. I use vinegar as a softener for our laundry and the large plastic jugs of vinegar will fit on these shelves as will the large Allen's Naturally laundry soap containers. This is perfect and I'm so glad I found it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great space saver easy to assemble, fits perfectly between dryer & wall. Holds larger containers like detergent, softener, etc. I also have the Elfa wall storage unit behind the door and laundry basket as well. Thanks Container Store for great products at very reasonable prices.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent organization I have a small kitchen, and have it on the side of my washer. If you don't have a good organization system for your cans, this is perfect. Two cans will fit width wise, so you can fit a lot of them. Cart is sturdy, easy to put together, and well worth the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Slim Cart This was perfect to fit in the space between a kitchen wall and my fridge. I put paper towels, can opener, and even my smoothie juicer on it (among other things). It was simple to assemble. No tools needed, everything pops in place.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from tiny wheels While this cart seems fairly sturdy the wheels are a ridiculous size. This size wheel makes it very difficult to wheel cart without it tipping
Date published: 2014-06-17
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good quality I purchased two of them. The quality is very good, as is the appearance. It is wider than those which are placed between washers and dryers. I use one for soaps. The sections are tall enough to accommodate tall bottles. I use the other for holiday decorations.
Date published: 2014-05-31
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great item, priced right! I bought 2 and set them up in my coat/linen closet (live in small apt) to hold toiletries and bathroom cleaning supplies, Tpaper and the like. They are simple to snap together, lightweight but strong enough for what they are intended and best part, on wheels for easy handling and access.

Is this safe to use in the space between fridge and stove?

Asked by: TinaMarie
No, it's made of plastic and shouldn't be next to a stove.

Does this cart come assembled? What is the dimension of the box it is shipped in?

Asked by: MKMG
The cart is not assembled, the package comes in a short box (not sure of the exact dimensions) but when I picked it up from the store it was in one of the container store large bags and they added large handles to accomodate the box sticking out of the bag. It was lightweight.

What is the distance between each shelf? I'd like to see if my cleaning supplies will fit or if they are too tall. Thank you!

Do the shelves adjust on this cart?

Or does the Container Store have another cart that can fit between appliances that does have adjustable shelves?
Asked by: SheriA
No adjustable shelves. The pieces on the side come in one size so you can't move the shelves to any other spots.

Can I fit 2 rows of spray paint cans on each shelf?

Also wondering if any thing toppled out because of the height of the shelf rim, or if it keeps most things from spilling out.
Asked by: LeMgarage
The interior width of the shelves of our 4-Tier Slim Cart is 6". We recommend storing items that are ~8" or less in height.

Securing cart to wall and locking wheels.

I'm looking for narrow shelves (less than 7" deep) for a nook in my closet. Can the (1) 4-tier slim cart be secured to the wall, and (2) can the wheels be locked? Thanks
Asked by: UptownNY
The shelves are 6" deep. The cart could possibly be secured to a wall with no baseboard trim, however it would require some ingenuity to secure it. The wheels cannot be locked from what I can see.

Can I put different wheels on easily?

I need to have the cart sitting up 3 inches from the floor and the wheels need to be at about 4.5-5 inches wide not the 6.75 inches of the unit. If I buy different wheels at a hardware store is it possible for me to put them on without breaking the cart?
Asked by: zss1
I do not think it is possible to change the wheels as they are integrated into the base pieces.
