Top 5 Best Rolling Standing Desks – Mobile and Compact

rolling standing desk

Rolling standing desks are a multifunctional, compact, and easy solution if you want to shift to a healthier lifestyle. Also, these mobile desks are more adorable than sit-stand desks. I am going to review the best rolling standing desks that you’ll find quite handy.

Mind Reader sit-stand desk ($ 71.99)

This mobile sit-stand desk from Mind Reader is compact but quite spacious at the same time. It has two tiers so you have more than enough room for two monitors and your keyboard. One of the features that I love is that the bottom tier is adjustable. So you can reposition it to the perfect angle you prefer. Thus, it reduces the risk of getting a sprained wrist.

This desk is made of a wooden table and an aluminum metal frame. It does have a lot of screws. And it does come with a Phillips screwdriver. I’ve noticed there could be improvements with the way it was shipped. The unit came with a bit of dent and scratches. Maybe it was due to mishandling whilst the desk is in transit.

As for the stability, if you have assembled it properly, it feels steady. And there’s no unnecessary movement. Just make sure that you tighten all the screws and follow the instructions for the setup. The setup may or may not be easy, depending on your DIY skills.

The height adjustment range is reasonable enough for an average-sized person. And the adjustment is done manually by rotating the handles. It’s best not to adjust it too often as it’s not that easy as a regular sit and stand desk.

It’s not the most durable desk, but it’s on par with its cost. The wheels are durable but they are made of plastic. So don’t expect industrial-grade wheels. It can last for a decent time. Just don’t put too much pressure when tightening all the parts.


  • Made of plastic and metal
  • 2 tiers
  • Measures 28 (L) x 27 (W) x 30-51 (H)
  • 4 locking wheels


  • Lockable wheels
  • Space saver
  • Large working space


  • Not that easy to assemble

AIZ Mobile standing desk ($ 79.99)

This AIZ mobile standing desk offers a simple way and ergonomic solution. The two tiers can be adjusted separately, so you can confirm it to your needs and requirements. Since not all users have the same torso length, this unit is pretty convenient. You can also adjust the trays independently.

It’s also quite easy to adjust the desk. It can go from 27 to 45 inches, so relatively ideal for average-sized users. Though it can’t go high enough for taller users.  

And apart from being functional and a compact workstation, the desk also looks lovely.


  • Height adjustment from 27.5″ to 45″
  • Two-tier
  • Comes with a screwdriver and wrench
  • Made from metal and chipboard
  • 80 lbs weight capacity
  • Dimensions is 27.1 x 26.2 x 4.3 inches
  • Equipped with lockable nylon wheels


  • 360-degree rotating wheels
  • Easy to assemble
  • Small footprint
  • Each desk can be adjusted independently

TechOrbits mobile standing desk ($149.95)

If you want a rolling standing desk with the most number of tables, then look no further. This TechOrbits rolling sit-stand desk has 4 shelves. The top tier is for the monitor and the second tier is for the keyboard. Also, you can use the third and fourth shelves to store some office supplies. So it’s a full workstation at a very compact size.

 Like most rolling and portable standing desks, the TechOrbits is manually adjusted. But you can be sure that it will securely lock in place with the locking rotary knobs.  

And what I like the most is that this rolling desk seems to be sturdy. It has a higher weight capacity than most rolling desks that I have encountered. So it can securely hold monitors and other media.

This rolling sit-stand desk is fairly easy to assemble. Though some users find assembling the larger desk a bit of hassle because the holes did not align. Though it might not be the same for all units. And lowering the desk may not be the easiest. To lower the desk, you have to lift it first past its max height. And lifting the desk isn’t also for everyone. You might need to flex a bit of muscle to change the height of the desk.

It also has a wide range of desk height adjustment. So it fits more users and it’s easier to find the most comfortable spot for you.  


  • 133 lbs weight capacity
  • 4 shelves
  • Lifetime warranty
  • Comes with tools needed for the setup
  • Manual adjustment from 31.9″ to 49.2″
  • Made of plastic melamine, particleboard, and steel 
  • Item weighs 40 lbs
  • Product dimension is 27.6″ D x 27.8″ W x 36.9-49.2″ H


  • Heavy duty
  • Easy to assemble
  • Lots of space
  • Has a wide height range adjustment
  • More shelves than the competition


  • Some of the screws were too long
  • Not the easiest to adjust

TatKraft rolling standing desk ($119.99)

One of the unique features of this rolling sit-stand desk is its keyboard tray. You can tilt it to 160 degrees and even rotate it to 360 degrees. So it’s pretty ergonomic and you’d be able to find the sweet spot for your wrist.

There’s an edge in the tray that catches the laptop. So it doesn’t fall even if it’s tilted and it also does not get in the way. It’s easy to adjust for most people. Though if you have issues on your joints such as arthritis, you might find it challenging to adjust. The snapping and unsnapping of the locks may need a bit of pressure.

This rolling desk is pretty sturdy and I didn’t experience any wobbliness. The wheels also roll smoothly even on carpeted floors.

The desk is made of particleboard. But it feels rather sturdy and fairly well made than other rolling desks that have a particle board desktop. The craftsmanship of this unit is way better. 

It also has a separate tray for a mouse. The area is pretty large and can accommodate mouse pads that measure 8- 10 inches. And this rolling workstation can also hold heavier and bigger laptops. The mouse tray is stationary. So some users might find it too low for them. But the height adjustment range of the monitor tray is pretty decent and can accommodate more users. 

One of the issues that you may encounter is that customer service is not the best, so you have to have patience. 


  • Rotatable keyboard tray
  • Height adjustment from 27.6 to 39.2 inches 
  • For laptops that measure 7-17″ laptops 
  • Has a mouse pad (8-10”)
  • 360 rotatable wheels


  • Fully adjustable tray
  • Larger mouse tray
  • Heavy duty
  • Stable and doesn’t wobble


  • Customer service isn’t the best

Mount It! mobile stand up desk ($145.99)

This Mount it! rolling standing desk is pretty functional and versatile. It has 4 shelves that can accommodate your monitor, keyboard, mouse, and other office supplies. You can adjust the height of the top two shelves up to 17 inches. And it has a wide range of height adjustment up to 11 locking positions.

And the bottom shield is pretty useful as it’s quite deep. You can even place your computer CPU and other equipment on it. This desk has the perfect height adjustment for tall users. But there’s a catch here. This rolling standing desk is best used in a standing position. The table can’t go low enough to be used in a sitting position, even for tall users.

So if you’re keen on buying this rolling desk, that’s what you have you consider. If you’re going to use it in a standing position, you won’t encounter any issues. 

It’s manually adjusted and fairly easy to do so. You can adjust this rolling sit-stand desk via the rotary locking knobs. 


  • Consists of 4 shelves
  • Equipped with two locking brakes
  • Has locking rotary knobs for height adjustment
  • Height adjustment range from 37.25” to 53.75”
  • Weight capacity of 132 lbs

Final Say

Rolling standing desks may have its limitations. These models are manually adjusted. And if you’re going to compare it with standing desks, it may not be the most durable. But it’s very handy and useful when you need a mobile workstation.
