First off, I am not a structural engineer but a mechanical one. I have been given the task to have a large number of E-size flat file cabinets moved. They are filled and most are just stacked upon each other, three high. What I am wondering is there some sort of device made to stack three to four of these five drawer file cabinets on top of each other, then have a fork lift move them? I would like to band the files cabinets together before the move. Not sure on how far they will be moved as yet. My guess is that these files are just being kept for history purposes and will not be referenced. I know this is a big question and there is still a large amount of information needed. Someone else at one point in time needed to move some of these file cabinets, I don't want to reinvent the wheel on this.
