Frequently Asked Questions
Do I have to take my stuff off when lowering or picking up the platform?
No most of the desks are made to hold your computer gear without unloading anything. If the desk doesn't want to go up you probably have too much weight and will need to remove some of the weight.
Do converter desks come with warranties?
Most desks come with 3 year warranties; you can also buy longer protection plans through third parties.
Full standing desks have better warranties averaging at 7 years and one has a lifetime warranty.
What Do you not like about the standing desk?
Most desks still deal with the issues of looking down. I have not seen any Brand that fixes this issue without buying accessories for the desk. When you are standing or sitting you should be looking straight at the screens you should not look down and the keyboard tray should allow for your elbows to be parallel to the ground 90 degrees.
