The Best Printer Trolley
A printer is an essential appliance for any home office. But, by the time you have a printer, paper, cartridges, spare paper and wires, it takes up a lot of space and doesn't look all that attractive.
A printer cart will help to keep all your accessories neatly organized but still accessible. You can free up your desk space by having your machine and office supplies (and even coffee maker) on printer stands, and, as everything will be in one place, you don't need to waste time searching for more paper or a new toner.
The best printer stands come in all shapes and sizes with numerous different features suitable for various office needs and printers. Here, we look at some of the best options available to help you decide which model to purchase for your home office.
Two storage shelves
Supports 99lbs total weight
Silent non-scratch wheels
19.1 x 15.9 x (26-30) inches
From the wide selection of printer stands, our best choice is the SONGMICS Adjustable 2 Shelf Printer Trolley. This is ideal for placing the printer on the top plus extra paper and office supplies on the lower shelves. The bottom two shelves are fixed, but the top is adjustable, mean that height can be either 26 inches or 30 inches. This product is made from a strong steel black frame with 18mm thick corkboard shelves and can support 110lbs in total. It is relatively easy to assemble with the use of an Allen key.
A few customer reviews have reported that they damaged the top shelf with the screws because they selected the wrong length out of the included tools. You need to ensure you pick exactly the right screws before you start assembly.

Rustic wooden shelves
The Mind Reader Charm 3-Tier Wood/Metal Utility Cart is actually a utility cart that works well as a printer trolley but can also be used as a display unit or a kitchen trolley. As the shelves are made from rustic wood material, it does not look like a piece of office furniture. This affordable product is straightforward to assemble and requires no tools.
The Mind Reader weighs 15lbs and is a reasonable size to handle most printers (22.9 x 12-inch shelf surface) although the shelves are not adjustable. You will also need to consider the weight as each tier has a maximum capacity of 20lbs.
Low weight capacity
Multi-functional storage cabinet
Grey oak wood
32 x 16 x 26 inches
Three drawers included
Four wheels and built-in brakes
The DEVAISE 3-Drawer Wood File Cabinet & Printer Stand is a spacious unit with plenty of storage space. Your printer can comfortably fit on the top (32 by 16 inches), and the drawers plus open space in the unit can hold folders, documents, accessories, and reams of paper. The bottom draw has a hanging file option. The overall weight capacity of this is 100lbs, add the wheels mean you can move it around without too much trouble.

Wheels with built-in lock
Quick to assemble
17.1 x 13.2 x 14 inches
Our budget pick for the best printer trolley is a simple rolling cart from Halter. The Halter LZ-306A Mini Rolling Printer Cart is lightweight, relatively compact, and has a very low price point. While there are no aesthetically pleasing wooden shelves it is one of the quickest trolleys to assemble. If you have an oversized printer, then this probably is not the best choice for you. The dimensions are 17 x 13 x 14 inches, and the total weight it can support is 75lbs.
As it is only 14 inches high, this is a great option if you want to hide your printer under your office desk. With this model, you get a small drawer for office supplies and spare paper can be kept on the bottom shelf. Cables can be neatly clipped in the hooks at the back of the trolley.
Fits under your desk
Incredibly quick to assemble
Not aesthetically pleasing
Not suitable for large printers
The Vestil Fiberwood Printer Dolly with 3″ Rubber Casters is a very solidly made stand that can hold up to 800lbs. It works well for holding printers but also large items like filing cabinets. With its swivel wheels, it can be easily pushed around. The fibrewood is strong and also has rubber edges, so it won’t mark your walls or doors if it comes into contact with them.
The Vestil is just a dolly, so doesn’t have any drawers or additional storage space but because of its minimal height (approx. 4 inches), it is a great way to keep a printer next to your chair or under your desk. This is not recommended for use on hardwood floors as the wheels will leave indentation trails.
Great for heavy weights
Good for holding a printer under the desk
Wheels leave indentation trails on hardwood
Upper shelf bears 33lbs
Middle/lower shelf bears 22lbs
Silent rolling wheels
18.9 x 15.7 x 26.6 inches
Another model from Devaise, this 3-shelf printer stand gives you a versatile storage solution. The DEVAISE Mobile 3-Shelf Printer Trolley is made from metal and water-resistant chipboard the unit is well-made, and the top shelf will hold a printer with a weight of up to 33lbs. The two lower shelves can support a weight of 22lbs each, so more than strong enough for spare paper or decorative ornaments. It can also be moved around with the four wheels but some reviewers have had trouble with the durability of the wheels. None of the shelves with this trolley are adjustable.
Clear assembly instructions
Good quality frame and shelving material
Multiple tiers for storage
Shelves are not adjustable
Won’t support heavy printers
Some reports of the wheels breaking easily
Three shelf printer cart
Made from iron and plastic
23 x 12.6 x 29.5 inches
20lbs capacity per shelf
The World Pride 3-Tier Rolling Salon Trolley Cart was originally decided for use in salons and spas, but there is no reason why it can’t work as a machine stand. With three tiers, it has ample space to hold a small printer on the top shelf and office supplies on the other levels. Each level only supports 20lbs so double-check how heavy your printer is.
This is made from iron and plastic, with a white finish and while it is not the most elegant design, this is a functional, low-cost option to keep your home office tidy.
Easy to assemble
Lightweight and portable
Not as sturdy as other printer carts
Not the best looking option
The Seville Classics 15-Drawer Rolling Utility Trolley is a great option if you want to keep office accessories and supplies organized.mWith five large drawers plus ten smaller drawers, you can keep documents, notepads, and all sorts of arts and crafts hidden away. The drawers are all fully removable. The top shelf can hold up to 16.5lbs, so it is a good alternative for holding a small desk printer or fax machine.
The Seville organizer cart is very mobile, quick to assemble, and is relatively sturdy, despite only able to hold lighter weights. It is also taller than many other rolling printer trolley options and comes in various colors if you want to brighten up your home!
Multiple drawers for easy storage
Available in various colors
Only supports lighter weights
Small cupboard plus two drawers
39.4 x 15.8 x 25.6 inches
Maximum capacity of 150lbs
Our premium pick for the best printer cart comes from Itaar, and it has more than adequate storage space for any home office. The Itaar Large 2-Drawer Wood File Cabinet & Printer Stand measures 39.4 inches wide and 15.8 inches deep, so there is enough space for a large printer, or a small desk printer plus a scanner on the laminate top shelf. Within the unit, there is a cupboard plus numerous open alcoves. You also get two lockable drawers to keep your documents secure and away from prying eyes. It is a very professional looking stand for your home office. The Itaar has lockable casters so you can move this around your home office, although it does weigh 70lbs.
High weight capacity
A limited number of customer reviews
Double tier design
Water-resistant, anti-scratch MDF
Capacity of 250lbs
11.8 x 20.4 x 21.7 inches
The DEVAISE Industrial Mobile Printer Stand with Storage Drawer is made from high strength, highly durable metal frames and MDF material. This unit is one of the best options for saving office space as it comes with a large storage drawer plus a decent amount of open storage with the bottom shelf. While the shelf isn’t adjustable, it is wide and sturdy enough to hold multiple folders, fax machines or even another printer. The stand weighs a total of 20.9lbs and the top shelf has a capacity of 44lbs.
Although it is called an industrial stand, it is designed with a walnut oak finish, so has the appearance of a piece of furniture that could easily be in a living room, not just a home office. As with the previous Devaise printer stands we reviewed, the low-quality wheels do let this product down. Rubber feet would be a better alternative.
High weight capacity
Good compact design
Shelf is not adjustable
Casters are not very strong
Three-tier storage cart
Ten hooks for hanging storage
MDF Vintage Board
Black metal frame
Top shelf capacity of 55lbs
23.7 x 15.6 x 28.7 inch
The Mr IRONSTONE 3-Tier Utility Cart comes with three tiers and is made from vintage MDF board and a black metal frame. It would look equally at home in a kitchen as it would a home office or both! The hanging hooks give an extra storage feature that is quite unique, and they can be removed if you have no use for them. The top shelf of this printer stand has rounded corners, making it a little bit more user-friendly.
This Mr Ironstone model has an adjustable middle shelf, and it has a high weight capacity, with the top shelf being able to handle 55lbs on its own. The other shelves can hold a maximum of 15lbs. Overall there is little to criticise about this product apart from the confusing assembly instructions.
Assembly instructions a little confusing
Two open shelves

P2 grade MDF
Total weight capacity of 150lbs
Stainless steel handles
The Bonnlo Wood File Cabinet with 3 Drawers meets most home office needs as a filing cabinet and as a cart for printers or scanners. This is a heavy-duty unit, able to support a total of 150lbs and comes with stainless steel handles. Included in the stand are; a deep drawer for hanging files, two smaller drawers and two storage spaces. All three drawers have locks. The full weight of the Bonnlo is 70lbs, and it does require a reasonable amount of assembly, especially to fit the drawers correctly.

31.5 x 15 x 29.3 inches
The HOMECHO Rustic Wood Filing Cabinet & Printer Trolley comes with a rustic wood finish and works beautifully as a bookcase or printer cart. There is a reasonable amount of construction involved in this cabinet, so you will need a few hours for this. Once complete, you get two drawers, a small cupboard, and two open storage shelves. The top shelf supports a weight of 44lbs, and the unit has five 360degree casters, so it moves around smoothly, especially on wooden floors. The wheels can be removed. The Homecho stand is versatile and well built, plus it the casters seem to be more sturdy than similar printer stands.

The South Shore 2-Door Printer Stand with Storage comes on wheels and is a good option for creating versatile storage in your home office. There are multiple storage spaces thanks to the small cupboard doors and the drawer. Inside the cupboard, there is an adjustable, removable shelf to give you even more flexibility. There is also a cable management unit on the back of this stand.
Made with a laminated board, this is a relatively strong cabinet that will support printers of up to 50lbs. The drawer and cabinet can hold a further 25lbs. The manufacturers’ instructions have mentioned that the top shelf can hold 75lbs, but reviews have shown that this will cause the shelf to bend slightly. You will need two people to build this unit and when fully assembled there seems to be a few issues with doors and drawers not being completely aligned.
Easy cable management
Capacity is misleading
Some flaws in the finished product
Cupboard with an adjustable shelf
18.9 x 13.4 x 22.4 inches
Our best value choice is the FITUEYES Printer Trolley with Adjustable Storage. This option is worth considering if you need a stand to go underneath a desk or at the side of you to hold your desk printer. The Fitueyes comes with a smooth black finish that is waterproof and gives you versatile storage options. There is an adjustable shelf behind the door, and this can sit in four different positions or removed to suit your needs. The cupboard door is fitted with a magnetic catch for easy, secure closing. The overall capacity of this unit is stated at 88lbs, but there is no description on the top shelf capacity.

The Monarch Specialties 3-Drawer File Cabinet & Printer Stand comes on five castors, making it easy to transport or rotate around in your office. There is enough space on the top of the cart for a printer or scanner, and the three drawers can hold your office supplies easily. The top two drawers are quite slim, but the bottom drawer is big enough to hold standard or legal-sized folders. The extra castor supports the lowest drawer when it is extended for added stability.
The Monarch requires assembly, with over 100 components, so if you are not confident with flat-pack furniture, then you may need assistance. The maximum weight it can hold is 88lbs. The brown wood finish makes this quite an elegant, yet sturdy stand.

The Winsome Halifax Black File Cabinet & Mobile Printer Trolley is a no-frills filing unit that comes with five equally sized drawers. The top of the unit will fit a desk printer that is smaller than 19.2 x 15.9inches, and the drawers are great for stationery or arts and crafts. As there are no large drawers, it is not ideal for documents, and there is no secure, lockable space. The drawers also don’t stay on their tracks at all times.
The Winsome wood unit comes in three different finishes, so you can choose one that fits your décor, and you can also get the unit with three or seven drawers if the five-drawer option doesn’t suit your needs.
Available in 3 or 7 drawer options
White, black or walnut finish
No large drawers for filing
Quality of drawer construction
Assembly is not straightforward

The top of this unit is ideal for a printer or heavy machine as it has a capacity of 55lbs. You could also put a scanner on the second shelf as this supports a further 33lbs.
As with many other carts, this wood printer stand comes with four removable, rotatable casters but they are not great quality and break easily. You could replace these with rubber feet.

Features To Consider With Printer Trolleys
The best printer stands will usually come with adjustable shelves. If you are planning to use the cart just to support a fax machine, scanner or printer on the top then this may not be important for you but if you have a lot of office supplies to store then you will appreciate the versatility. You can also find printer stands that have an adjustable top shelf which can help if you want to alter the height to match your desk.
The more complex a printer desk or stand is then generally the harder it is to assemble. With basic stands, you may find that you don't even need tools to build it, and it is easy to assemble in minutes. A printer stand with drawers and cupboards will test your ability to put together home furniture!
The best dimensions for a printer stand depend entirely on your needs and the size of your machine. Firstly, you need to consider whether you need a printer cart that will fit under a desk or whether you have room for a larger stand. Next, you should look at the measurements of your printer to ensure that the stand is big enough to support it. Sizes of stands vary greatly; some will suit quite bulky machines whereas others are best for a small desk printer.
All of the products we reviewed come with casters (wheels) with built-in locks. These wheels turn a regular stand into a rolling printer cart that can be moved around an office with little trouble. If you want to be able to change the location of your printer regularly then it is best to choose stands with highly durable casters, that don't break easily.
A printer stand can be a great option if you want to save some office space. If this is important for you then look for a unit that comes with drawers, cupboards, or storage shelves. Some stands have hanging file drawers and others even have lockable drawers to keep your office documents secure.
Strength of Material
A machine stand needs to support the weight of a printer plus any other office supplies. However, just as the dimensions of a stand varies, so does the material. You can usually understand how strong it is by looking at the maximum capacity that it can hold.
It is essential to look for a unit that can support your office printer. Don't just look at the capacity of the whole unit, it is the individual shelves that are important. Smaller stands have a top-shelf capacity of less than 20lbs, making it suitable only for a small desk printer, where others hold up to 110lbs.
