Looking for TV stands that you can move?

Make sure that a mobile or rolling tv stand has a stable wheelbase, and tilting feature as some of the portable TV stands we tested do not have this essential feature for classrooms or are stable enough for regular use and movement in offices.

When watching visual motion images comes to a mobile TV cart, the stands are great for use in schools, offices, hospitals, universities, workshops, and other places where a permanently installed TV is not an option and portability is a top priority.

The best rolling TV stand is easily moved in and out of the room and plugged into the nearest outlet, giving you a chance to watch training videos or participate in video calls even more remotely.

Finding the right mobile TV stand will depend on the size and weight of your TV, the shelf space you want, and the type of wheels you need for rolling across remote rugged terrain inside your home or office building.

Some do better indoors with flat and smooth flooring, while others can be used outdoors on patios and decks.

A wide wheelbase helps with stability. And a tilting feature is vital for students sitting on the ground. Not all mobile tv stands have a tilting feature.

Features to consider before buying a mobile TV mount

1. Build and structure

Some budget-friendly stands can be made from less than desirable materials.

Always be sure the stand you are considering is made from heavy-duty tempered steel to guarantee more rugged durability.

Also, you want rolling TV stands to hold not only flat screens but curved screens too.

2. Weight capacity

Always be sure you check the weight capacity of the stand and compare this to the weight of your TV and laptop.

Remaining under that weight limit is safest to prevent tipping and vertical pole failure on the stand.

3. Viewing angle

Ensuring you have the best viewing angle is important when used in schools and offices.

Some stands offer a slight angle and tilt option while others are completely stationary with no movement options other than sitting on the floor.

You want to keep the screen at a good eye level from different positions.

4. Adjustable height

If you are considering a mobile TV stand, be sure to have the height adjustments you need.

Take for example, if you will look for low base mobile TV stands for churches or are in the need of extra height for rolling TV stands for hospitals then consider flexible and wide height adjustment in the range you are needing.

Some are fixed to a certain height, while others have a wide range of height adjustment options to suit your needs.

5. Media shelves

Most stands will include one central media shelf for laptops or DVD players or gaming consoles.

Others may have small upper shelves for webcams.

The base on some stands also counts as a base for speakers and other AV equipment and devices like microphones.

6. Cable management 

Some stands are made so cables can be run through the central vertical pipe to keep them hidden and organized.

While others will need to have the cables secured to the exterior of the stand using clips.

Look for a rolling stand where you don’t need to worry about hiding cables as you move from one area to another place.

7. Caster wheels

All mobile TV stands include casters of different sizes.

Some may include all four wheels as locking, while others may only have two lockable wheels. Some stands don’t have lockable wheels at all.

8. Base

Some bases may be extremely small and discreet, while others will be large and bold.

Small bases are stylish but maybe tippy, and larger bases are extremely stable but can be a tripping hazard.

Reasons to buy a mobile TV stand

1. Portability

If you often find yourself presenting video curricula in different classrooms or offices, it’s important to have an easily portable TV stand to take along with you.

2. Flexibility

Being able to find a versatile mount that offers a range of adjustment options is great in offering flexibility. 

3. Two or three in one mounting

Some mounts offer two-in-one mounting options, while others offer three-in-one. Be sure you know which stand offers what.

4. No drilling

Using a mobile TV stand means you won’t have to damage your walls or ceilings by drilling permanent brackets and mounting arms into the surface of the plasterboard.

However, for permanent mounting of a TV, we recommend the best tv wall mount here.

5. Save space

Being able to move a TV out of a room when the programming machine is not needed can open up usable space for other activities.

Mobile TV stand vs Fixed floor TV stand

By build

Both mobile TV stands and vertical TV stands are built similarly. You will particularly be relying on a heavy-duty rolling TV stand if you always have to move your TV box around.

The most notable difference is mobile stands will have caster wheels while vertical stands do not but rather sit on the ground with a weighted base or are permanently fixed to the floor using screws.

By viewing angle

Both mobile TV stands and vertical TV stands offer the same general range of motion.

You may occasionally find more range of motion in a vertical TV stand, however, if you don’t consider the mobile stand can be moved by using the wheels.

Using Hemudu HT2001B TV floor stand

By portability

Being able to roll a mobile TV stand into and out of different rooms is much easier than having to carry the weight of the stand and TV as you would with a vertical TV stand.

By assembly

Both mobile TV stands and vertical TV stands share many of the same assembly perks and challenges. You will be tasked with connecting the wheels to a mobile TV stand, however, it’s pretty simple.

By function

A mobile TV stand is normally used in schools, libraries, offices, hospitals, daycares, and other areas where a permanent television is not needed.

Vertical TV stands are normally a more permanent addition to a corner or wall and won’t be moved nearly as often.

The shorter version stands above a tabletop and has no options to move to another place as easily as the best brackets are bolted down.

Choosing the best mobile TV mount

#1 Top mobile TV mount

The Mount-It! MI-875 stand is eye-catching from the moment we noticed the stature and stylish decor capabilities. Our top recommendation makes for a great rolling TV stand for home shows, public uses, or office Zoom meetings.

I like the style and stability but some people prefer a darker black mount to suit their interior design.

Pros

  • Has a tilting feature other rolling tv mounts don’t have for your neck.
  • Found to have a heavy-duty weight capacity of up to 110 lbs.
  • Feels strong and light with the aluminum construction.

Cons

The Perlesmith PSTVMC05 is an attractive mount with a black powder-coated finish.

Being great for home use, or areas, where children may be present as the base, is wider making your prized possession extra stable.

We found this to be extremely sturdy and hard to tip over from our tests, even when holding large TVs straight up.

I will say this again the wide-set legs provide stability while the four locking casters are easy to roll as needed. A no-brainer when you frequently need to move a TV in an office, library, or building.

Pros

  • Extra compact with a great sturdy base and strong joints that can handle the bumps.
  • Up to 59 inches of height adjustment.
  • Hides your cables neatly for a tidy ending.

Cons

  • Doesn’t tilt, requiring you to only use height adjustment for direct viewing, not good for ground sitting classrooms.

How do the cable and cords go on a mobile TV stand?

Depending on the stand’s brand and model, the cords may be able to slide through the inside of the support beam holding the TV up.

In this case, the cords will be hidden and discreet.

Others may require the cords and cables to be secured to the outside of the stand’s legs with zip ties or cable wires.

This is more visible, but still keeps the cords organized as well.

Is your TV safe on a moving TV mount?

Having a stand with a large TV on top may add some anxiety to your day. After all, the TV looks to be somewhat top-heavy and the stand might tip over. If this is a concern, always consider the base size.

Larger X-shaped or H-shaped bases are extremely stable even when holding large TVs. Smaller bases are discreet, but usually require the weight of extra audio/visual equipment to keep the rolling stand more stable.

Locking wheels can also add an extra level of security.

They will prevent the TV mount from sliding and bumping into something on accident and potentially breaking or otherwise damaging the TV.

If you have pets or kids in the house, you might want to consider a TV stand that pops up and hides in a cabinet.

Imagine if you were to park your car without a handbrake! A rolling TV mount is the same story.

How to adjust the height safely with a mounted TV on a mobile TV stand?

Most mobile TV stands will have spring-assisted risers that allow you to raise and lower the height of the TV with great ease and motion.

There will be a secure locking mechanism that you will need to loosen by pushing a button, turning a knob, or using a hex key.

After the nuts are loosened, you can easily slide the unit up or down to adjust the height, take your time to find the perfect spot.

Spring-assisted or electronic adjusting mounts can normally be done by a single individual.

  • Hold onto the stand with both hands to prevent tipping.
