These are like trays with wheels that you sit your cubes on.

I've thought about getting one, but it would make my cubes too tall under my table. Sure would make things easier to be able to move around to get to what's behind them.

I was wondering about these. Could you use them with the cubes with drawers??

I have one that was given to me by a friend. It's ok. The wheels are kind of small so I don't think it would work well on carpet, I have laminate and it rolls nicely. I have one cube on it, the small stacked drawers and two of the stacking trays on top. I use the top to hold supplies for current projects I'm working on, the next tray as a catch all for things that need to be put away, in the drawers are my new stamps (have to have somewhere to hide them all before they make their way to my stamp binder), another drawer for fancy brads, the last drawer for papers I love and use on layouts often and then in the big open cube on the bottom are my stamp binders.
One thing I don't really like is you have to have an open cube on the bottom as there is a lip around the base to hold the cube in. I was originally going to put a cube with a drawer down there, but then realized the drawer won't open if I do that.
I do however love that I can roll it next to my desk to use all the stuff I have for current projects (my desk stays cleaner!) and I can just roll it out of the way when I am done.

No no no- dpn't buy them. You can make something similar without a lip on it! Before my husband and I realized the bases even existed, we thought how nice it would be if they could roll, so I could clean under/behind them. He went out and bought white laminate shelving and some casters and voila- I know have my own rolling cabinets. The shelf is long enough that it hold 3 cubes side by side. Each shelf has 6 casters- one on each corner and one on each side near the center for support. I have two of them that he made for me. And--because there is no lip- there are drawer units on all of them.
