InterMetro Silver 4-Shelf Starter Unit is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 191.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great, sturdy storage, event on carpet We purchased 2 for added shelving in a large closet. I was a little concerned about how sturdy these would be on carpet, but they are great! Shelves are nice and wide/deep so really practical, plus you can hang things off of them as needed. And we got them on sale so an added plus!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect shelf We recently bought 8 of these shelves to be used in our basement and garage and I am so impressed by how sturdy and great these shelves look. They were super easy to put together and versatile on shelf heights and what they can store.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very happy customer I bought this shelving unit as a temporary fix for the kitchen in my new home with very little cabinet space. It was very easy to assemble. It is so sturdy and well made that I have absolutely no hesitations about using it to store large, heavy items in my garage after I have my kitchen remodeled. I plan to buy a second unit to pair with this one in my garage. I couldn’t be happier with this purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy & easy to assemble If you have two people it will take about 20 minutes following the instruction sheet to put it up in the garage. The double and single guides on the rods really help to adjust the positions for the shelves.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Will buy again when I need more. I currently have a storage unit that needed some help becoming efficient so that I could get to everything in the storage unit without stacking and un-stacking everything. These shelves went together quickly and easily, are very sturdy, and turned my storage unit into an organizer's dream. I can now get to everything in my storage unit within seconds vs. spending time stacking and un-stacking items. If needed, I will buy more of these shelves in the future.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Shelving The Metro shelving unit offers an attractive and economical way to provide vertical storage. The clips require a little bit of practice to assemble, and the instructions are incomplete, but ultimately one can get it assembled.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy These are very sturdy and I like all of the optional accessories available. It does help to have an extra set of hands when assembling.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love, love, love Metro Kitchen Shelving Bought two Metro Kitchen units to create a kitchen pantry in a home with limited kitchen storage. They are compact and sturdy, nice to look at and they hold a ton of food/appliance/cooking items - from a microwave oven to spice racks, bulk purchases and Costco-style cases of food items. Can also add hooks for pots and pans. Gives a nice urban feel to the kitchen. Assembly is easy. All you need is a rubber mallet. No screws!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Solution! My owner's closet was a mess. I was using stacked plastic tubs for storage and it seemed that, whatever I needed was always in the bottom tub. It was a nightmare! These shelves fit perfectly in my double closet and everything is easy to see and to reach....a perfect solution. I'm now thinking of getting these for my basement. I purchased an extra basket shelf for sheets and a shelf liner was also very useful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy organizer We moved to a smaller apartment and this place does not have much storage space. In order to better utilize our floor space, it's a must to go verticle. Since we have a lot of belongings in the moving boxes still (and yes, they are heavy), this shelves is durable enough to hold all our books, extra kitchen stuff (plates, bowls, mugs), and so on. We ended up purchase 4 set of special offer units and put them against a wall. Because of this change, our boxes are well-organized. Most importantly, our home is not cluttered with moving boxes and we have gained a lot more floor space to entertain. This set is not cheap but the quality is good. If you are looking for a shelving which can hold your heavy items, you won't go wrong with this unit. For the return of investment, it definitely worth the money as we know these 4 sets will last and go to next home with us.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beverage and Mailing Station Wanting to consolidate cases of beverages in our garage, this shelf works wonderfully! The sturdy construction allows for large amounts of weight, rather than a flimsy plastic shelf system. It does take an extra set of hands to put the first shelf one, but once set in place, very easy to adjust the rest of the shelves. On the right top shelf, I added a Large 4-Sort Divider (purchased at The Container Store) to tame shipping boxes of various sizes. The divider is zip tied to the wire shelf for stability.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from InterMetro I now have 10 of these units ... Incredibly easy to put together ... Bought them all as starter units and saved a lot of $$$! Strong, industrial look and strength ... I use in my basement and my garage ... I also have a 36" tall unit in grandkids play area and they can reach everything with ease ... The best!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from personal, flexible storage idea I'm not a very organized person,so my garage was a mess. I first saw another friend of mine who is using this shelving product at their garage. I did not know how useful these shelves can be but decided to give it a try. It turned out that I love it; so does my husband. My garage can store more items and more organized. Hence, I bought a second one. I'd recommend anyone to buy an extra shelve (only $25 extra) when the original product only comes with four shelves.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Garage storage We bought three of these for storage in our garage. They are very strong and hold a lot of items. They also disappear into the walls which makes the garage feel and look bigger. Assembly was more or less a two person job (really 1.25, but more than one) but quite simple. We are pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect! Wow, hard to beat container store for overall customer service. I woke up on a rainy Sunday deciding it was high time for a garage cleaning/reorganization and saw these shelves on sale and they seemed perfect. I ordered online, they txted me within the hour my items were ready for pickup, I pulled up to front of store, called them, and they came out and loaded the car. Never even had to get out. Got home and enjoyed my rainy cleanup day. Shelves assembled really fast and easy with no tools. Do make sure to they give you the instruction sheet. Mine was missing so I called back and when she described what to do it was a breeze but I wouldn't have figured it out without knowing. And I did snap clips in the wrong place accidentally a couple time and she was right that a gentle tap with a rubber mallet fixed the problem. Great experience start to finish.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ok These shelves are ok. After we put them together, which was a bit of a nightmare since we couldn't find instructions, and put our storage things on them, one of the shelves slipped down a few inches on one side, but the plastic grip didn't let it slide all the way. We only put light bins on them too. I wouldn't put heavy things on here, I won't be completely surprised if the next time I go to storage, one of these babies has fallen down. It hasn't yet though. I just don't see how the plastic grips can hold much.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shelving choice! This is the easiest shelving my husband & I ever put together! It is adjustable. We love it so much we bought 2 sets for my daughter & her husband. This is the best shelving we ever bought!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Idea This kit is everything you need to build a shelf. It makes it easy because you don't have to worry that you forgot some pieces. Just bring it home and put it together.

Can the InterMetro posts be cut to 54"?

Can the Container Store cut the posts in the InterMetro Silver Heavy-Duty 4-Tier Shelving Unit be cut to a custom height? https://www.containerstore.com/s/intermetro-silver-heavy-duty-home-shelving/d?productId=11009260&q=4-tier
Asked by: Butterduck
With a proper metal chop saw I’m sure you *could* cut them. I don’t think I would recommend it though. Unless you save the top plastic cap to keep debris and moisture from getting inside after.

Is it safe and sturdy enough to hold a microwave?

Asked by: KitchenStorageHelp
Yes. Absolutely. These Intermetro shelves are different from just a generic metal shelving unit from any big box store. And as far as I know the Intermetro units are only available at the container store. The gauge of the steel is different too from what you may get similar looking but not the same brand from other retailers - I learned this by talking to the store manager and an associate.

When assembling, does the top shelp have to be placed at the very top of the unit?

Is the height of the shelf itself adjustable to accommodate a shorter height?

Asked by: Laine0413
You select the level at which the shelf is set - so it can be as high or as low as you want to accommodate taller or shorter items.

Are the shelves sturdy enough to hold 1-gallon paint cans in the garage?

About how many cans per shelf, if they are maybe 1/2 full or less?
Asked by: NancyW
I was told the shelves will hold 500 lbs each - how many cans depends on your can size - the shelves are 48" long
