The biggest mistake made in furnishing offices and home offices is not purchasing enough good quality filing cabinets. There is an awful lot of paperwork to be stored over the years. The computer was supposed to cut down on paperwork, but that did not happen. We still need all that back up paperwork in case the computer crashes. We still need all the signed papers and documentation for taxes, law suits and contracts with customers. We still have all those reports to save and contracts to hang on to. We still need lots of storage for paperwork. Office Filing Cabinets come in metal, metal and wood or solid wood. There are different qualities and price points in every material and with every file cabinet manufacturer.
A good storage cabinet needs to be well constructed so it does not fall apart with use. Your cabinet needs to be rated for a high weight load so it will not tip over when the drawer is fully extended to get at back files. It is a good idea to get a locking one so private papers stay that way. We do need to worry about account security and financial record security. Do not make the mistake of buying poor quality for it will cost you in the long run. The next mistake made is to buy storage that is to small so why not buy the taller ones for the same floor space and more storage. I would purchase a five drawer cabinet rather than a two drawer one if I had the choice. The taller cabinets are not that much more money, but give you more storage.
Purchase enough Office File Cabinets for present and future storage, so they will all match. If you need to add more cabinets and can not find ones to match, your office will not look its best. You can purchase Office File Cabinets from furniture stores, office supply places and even used furniture suppliers. You can also shop on line for file cabinets and have them shipped to your location. When you shop for your file cabinets make sure to get good quality units of big enough size to meet your storage requirements.
