Our thoughts on Devaise file cabinets
Devaise cabinets seem to hold up pretty well. We have reviewed Lorell cabinets earlier and we have discovered that they had lots of shipping problems. And with a not-so-hefty build like Lorell’s, it’s bound to incur some dents and damages along the way. Although a better shipping service can lessen the occurrences.
Devaise file cabinets, on the other hand, are more durable and sturdy. These units seem to hold pretty well during transit and ours came without any dents. Also, the brand manufactures a range of filing cabinets and offers more options. You can choose from metal filing cabinets and those that have open storage. Some models are quite gorgeous and can be used as a focal point in the living room.
As for the price, it’s a mix of things. There are affordable Devaise file cabinets but there are also steeply-priced ones. So the brand has an apple for everyone.
