Buying a standing desk can be a big decision that requires a good bit of research. At VARIDESK, we get a lot of questions about our desks, accessories, health benefits, and more. To help you out during your research process, we’ve created Frequently Asked Friday, a series created to answer common questions surrounding VARIDESK, standing while you work, and office wellness in general!
Do I really need a mat?
While a mat is not required to stand, we highly recommend using one while standing if you don’t want to be nursing some sore feet at the end of the day. After a full day of standing on a hard surface, your feet will probably feel pretty sore and tired. Having a mat makes a world of difference by keeping your feet supported and comfortable. There are also added benefits to using a mat like our ActiveMat, which encourages you to stretch and move while you stand.
Do you have any sales/discounts/promotions going on?
At VARIDESK we strive to provide every customer with the lowest possible price everyday, so to avoid changing prices we do not have any sales or offer any discounts. We do, however, offer a great 30-day no-risk return. This allows you to try the desk out for 30 days and, if you don’t love it, return it for a full refund-no questions asked!
I work at a corner desk. Is there an option for me?
Lucky for you, we offer two different options for corner desks and cubicles. Our Cube Corner series has a triangular surface that fits comfortably in the corner of your desk or cubicle. We also offer our Cube Plus series. This desk was built with the cubicle in mind. The 23 3/4″ (60.3 cm) depth makes it slim enough to use in a standard cubicle, while still offering complete comfort and stability in either the standing or sitting position.
Can I carry my desk by myself?
Unless you plan on purchasing our Soho desk, we always advise you get someone to help you lift your VARIDESK out of the box and onto your desk. Our desks range anywhere from 57-157 pounds and can be hard to maneuver. So be safe rather than sorry and get a friend to help you out!
How much weight can my VARIDESK hold?
For the Pro 30, Pro 36, Pro Plus 30, Pro Plus 36, Cube Plus 48 and Cube Corner 48 models, the recommended weight limit is 35lbs or 15.8kg. For the Pro 48, and the Pro Plus 48, the weight limit is 45lbs or 20.4kg. For the Pro Desk 60, the weight limit is 50lbs or 22.2kg.
