Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile and sturdy shelving system and more. I've been using this shelving for over 15 years. I've used it for displays at trade shows, storage in my own home and most recently to create a workstation desk for my small home recording studio.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Practical 3 Tier Shelf Very good quality materials. We purchased the 3 tier shelf and added wheels. It is very sturdy. The wheels lock for stability. We are using the shelf in a storage room. Unlike many of the reviews, we found the assembly instructions to be reasonably straightforward. Directions can always be better, depending on one's spatial relations ability. The most challenging assembly requirement for us involved the black plastic braces/holders for the shelves. You have to pay attention to the pictures to notice that those black pieces are wider at one end. Be sure to put the wider end as shown in the picture.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A sturdy cart with many uses This is a heavy duty, sturdy cart. The salesman made it look simple enough to assemble with his connector demo, but it took until the 2nd shelf to really get the hang of it. The 18 x 48"shelves are heavy and it's quite awkward for one person working alone with 80" poles. And I used 6 shelves. Having two people would make it quite easy. It's a bit tricky to get shelves to lock properly on to the connectors; they tend to slide, causing the shelf to drop below horizontal.It's solid and can hold quite a bit of weight. I liked it so much, I bought another 36" height one with one basket shelf. Much easier with this height. Should have assembled this one 1st. I was pleased with the final product. A little expensive, but it'll last forever.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One little catch--bin feet & liners Intermetro shelving is amazing, fantastic. But many plastic bins, including CS's sweater bins, etc. have small plastic feet. These keep bins neatly stacked--no sliding around & that's why you need those Metro clear shelf liners: to keep those tiny bin feet from catching in the open shelf wiring. I loaded my shelves & found I was arm wresting bins w/ their feet stuck in wire shelf. To plan shelf spacing, add the little bin feet to your calculation. Pull the bin foot forward so it clears the shelf's front support wire & any bin feet above or clears the next shelf's lower wire. Then pick where to clip on your shelves. Plus a shelf is 1-1/4", not 1". Count that 1/4"!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Long Life, Sturdy and Portable I've had the basic shelving system, with 4 shelves for many years, and knew that I needed more shelves with less stacking within the shelves (unit is over 60" high), so I bought 3 additional shelves. Perfect! We use it as a pantry within our office.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful and Useful Shelves My wife and I purchased this shelf (48 inch wide) to build an in-the-house storage unit for the room that has become the "office" in our home. The nice silver finish looks great and keeps the unit from looking like it belongs in the garage. The shelves are very sturdy, and ours are loaded with significant weights. We are delighted with the shelf unit, and highly recommend it to anyone looking for very utilitarian yet attractive shelving units.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the Whole Shelving System I purchased the InterMetro shelving unit to put all of our large appliances on. We set it up in the garage with the canvas cover to keep the dust off. It holds everything we wanted it to, plus some. FANTASTIC! I like that I could purchase an extra shelf because some of the appliances aren't very tall, and I didn't want to waste one inch of space. Also, it's very sturdy and well-made.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product Strong and easy to assemble. I needed a tall printer stand and already had a shelf so I ordered more shelves and poles. However, the order did not include assembly instructions. If I didn't already have these components I might have been a bit mystified on how to assemble them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile! I've been happy with the InterMetro purchases I've made so far. I purchased a single shelf to add to a set (my 4th) when I needed to add one more. These hold far more than the plastic things from home improvement stores (and the shelves don't sag). When they are on sale next, I plan to get 1 more set.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from PERFECT SOLUTION!!!! 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!!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best general storage option I've ever found We started with one setup of InterMetro shelves in our kitchen and have since expanded to a tool shelving system, a smaller one in the bathroom, and will probably add more in the future! Disassembled the pieces are light enough and maneuverable enough to get almost anywhere, and once assembled they're extremely sturdy and useful. Highly recommended!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I needed! I purchased these shelves to fit into a specific area in my closet. I was able to buy the shelves at the correct height and width, so that they fit perfectly. Now my clothing are neat and orderly and my closest is utilized to meet its capacity. Easy to carry up stairs and put together.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product Bought two of these wire shelves and 4 wheels to construct a cart for our 65" flat screen TV. It is very sturdy and easy to fasten the feet onto the wires. This is our second cart for our second TV. The other cart holds a 42" flat screen TV. Makes it mobile and the lower shelf holds additional electronics. Black color makes it blend into the décor. Worth the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent as always We've been using Metro shelving for almost 9 years. This was just a rolling shelf package to use in the laundry room, but we've got a large pantry outfitted with several sets of these shelves, and they're great, expecially for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The easiest purchase ever. I really needed shelving for the business. Strong but not an eye sore. I went on line to the Container Store and ordered away. I picked up the order right at the store. It was so easy and the shelves were perfect. I bought more for more spaces. The drive and pick up at the store was so unbelievably easy. I went back a third time. The Inter Metro and Metro shelving, the price, the order on line and just drive up, and the employees just bringing it to your car is the best!!!!!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the look of open shelves Shelves hold plenty of weight and with a liner, small things don't fall through. I like the open look and you have to keep your belongings neat that way.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great part of a practical kitchen island We needed a kitchen island that would be good for food prep (very little counter space in an NYC apt), storage, not to big, and movable. Intermetro let us design something that is all 4. We are so happy with this thing! Shelves are great. They were easy to install and cleans easily. We have them in black, which i think really makes it look like a piece of actualy furniture and not cheap shelving. It's been almost 4 years and it's in great shape. Here's the components of our kitchen island. 1. InterMetro® Butcher Block Top - 13-1/4" x 35" x 7/8" h 2. Shelves 14" x 36" InterMetro® Wire Shelf. In Black, it's 483015. We have 3, but you could probably get a 4th one in there if you wanted more shelf space. 3. 4 posts, 34-1/2" InterMetro® Post. Black is 483030. 34 inches seems short, but when you add the caster wheels, its counter height. 4. Wheels - we have 2 caster wheels with brakes and two without. 3" InterMetro® Caster w/ Brake is 483077 5. Canvas cover - we thought about this but didn't do it. We have young kids, but they don't grab everything as much as I thought they would. In fact, we keep plastic containers on the bottom, and when they are interested, it's kind of a nice distraction that keeps them busy. The fact that its on wheels has not been dangerous for the kids, but if we don't want it to move, locking the two wheels keeps it in place. Overall, a great product, and I'd buy Intermetro shelving again.

Asked by: tome
No, 18" x 30" is not available in InterMetro shelving.
Answered by: snzeigler
Date published: 2021-03-04

it looks like metro shelving DOES come available in the 18" x 36". Is this correct? and if it is correct, does metro shelving fit on intermetro posts? i.e. can you combine intermetro pieces with metro pieces, or are they completely different systems?

Asked by: Marytb84
Yes, you are correct metro shelves are available in 18" x 36". Metro shelves will work on InterMetro posts and vice-versa, but they won't hold the same weight as a Metro unit would. And the colors won't match. Thank you for your question. We hope this helps!
