With the popularity of the adjustable height standing desk “on the rise,” it’s no surprise that there are a few more brands around these days. We've noticed some confusion among customers between our UPLIFT Desk and the similarly-named but quite different UpDesk. Our company has been in business since 2002, while UpDesk is a newer entrant, and the similar names can make it difficult to differentiate the two desks. Hopefully this info will help clear up your questions and show you why UPLIFT is #1.
For starters, the UPLIFT has more options for desktop sizes and colors. Whereas UpDesk has options in just three sizes and one desktop material, we offer a huge variety. You can select your desktop in one of four standard sizes, and our desktop materials include GREENGUARD-certified laminate, two bamboo styles, reclaimed wood, and over a dozen solid wood options. If the standard sizes don't work for you, the UPLIFT can be ordered in any custom size. This is great if you need a certain desk shape to compliment your office style and décor.
Another thing that most people will notice is that UPLIFT prices are considerably lower. We believe in pricing our desks low so that more people can reap the benefits of a height adjustable desk. Sitting is the new smoking, and it is our mission to help people live longer and healthier lives. To that end, not only do we maintain low prices, we also have extended hours and a live chat service with representatives who will be happy to answer any questions you may have.
UPLIFT also offers a much wider range of accessories than UpDesk, and we discount them when purchased as part of your desk set-up. One of our customers' favorite add-ons is our grommet hole option. We'll drill one, two, or three grommet holes in your choice of locations, and custom placements are available. If you need additional outlets than those offered by our in-house designed wire management kit, you can opt for our power grommets, providing two in-desk outlets for a convenient power source. Add our storage options, monitor arms, CPU holder, standing mat, and more, and you've got yourself a desk perfectly customized to your needs. All UPLIFT Desks and accessories are designed by our Certified Professional Ergonomist.
We’re so confident in our UPLIFT system that we include a standard 7 year all-inclusive warranty on our desks. This is two more years than UpDesk and covers more of the system. If you should have any issues with the UPLIFT system, our team will be happy to assist you in finding a quick solution to the problem. You can also opt for our extended warranty, providing a full 12 years of support.
The difference is clear. For the best value on a height adjustable desk, your best bet is the UPLIFT Height Adjustable Electric Sit-Stand Desk. Don’t hesitate to ask us for a quote so that you can get out of your chair for the same UPLIFTing experience shared by so many others.
