You don’t have to hit the gym to feel strong; Montel can help you move mountains (of inventory) in seconds without breaking a sweat.

Sounds crazy, right? Well, as the world’s leading experts in high-density mobile storage solutions, we’re not ones to back down from any challenge, even one as big as this one. Today, we’d like to highlight an underrepresented but valuable feature of our mechanical-assist Mobilex shelving system: the ability to effortlessly move multiple carriages at once.

The following video features Mobilex renowned to be the smoothest mechanical-assist mobile storage system in the industry. You will notice in this video a retail store employee moving effortlessly at once 4 x 36 feet long mobile carriages. Let’s do the Mobilex maths:
1,000 lb per linear foot
x 36 feet long carriages for this application  (36,000 lb load capacity per carriage)
x 4 Carriages
= 144,000 lb total weight load capacity
The user shown in this video could potentially move 144,000 lb with one hand! Unbelievable…. isn’t.
Imagine how more productive a retail store can be if the staff is capable of moving multiple units at once vs. other systems where each mobile shelving unit would need to be moved one at a time.  The fact that employees are more productive with a Mobilex system in any back store obviously means additional sales.
With its unique gear ratio and the superior quality of its components, Montel can easily claim to have the best recipe for the smoothest operating mobile shelving storage system.
