What makes UPDESK different from its competitors?

There’s only a handful of suppliers around the world who manufacture electric-lift frames for height adjustable standing desks, and UPDESK has partnered with the very best supplier for our Pro series - LINAK (Danish designed + commercial grade).

Our Pro series desks meet or exceed applicable ANSI/BIFMA furniture industry quality standards. Not everyone can make these product claims for its quality and longevity. UPDESK can.

Additionally, UPDESK offers fast and free shipping to the continental US (lower 48), and a wide variety of desktop colors, materials, and configurations to choose from. Plus, have the confidence to know you’re backed by a 30-day money back guarantee.

Is there an “automatic drive” feature on all UPDESKs?

All Pro series UPDESKs come standard with the Bluetooth Smart Desk Controller that offers an automatic drive feature (aka - you don’t have to press and hold the preset buttons to reach your predetermined height) as well as the ability to pair with your iOS or Android smartphone to help create and motivate a healthy sit/stand routine during your work day.

You can also purchase a stand-alone “Smart Desk Controller” for use on any powered UPDESK (including older models, but excluding the Home series) on our accessories store here.

Where does UPDESK ship product to?

We’re unable to ship to P.O. boxes or APO/FPO addresses.

My UPDESK isn’t moving. What should I do?

Most likely, your desk does not have any power. Check the wall outlet that your desk is plugged into for power. Check to ensure that the power cable is seated fully into the desk’s control box located underneath the desk top. Double check that all cables (power cable, motor cables, etc.) are fully seated underneath your desk.

I’m seeing an error code on my controller and/or my desk is not moving properly. What should I do?

If you see any error codes on your UPDESK (for controllers with a display) or if your desk has stopped functioning normally, the first troubleshooting step is to re-initialize your UPDESK. Follow these steps exactly:

  1. Press down on your controller until the desk will not go any lower. Release.
  2. Press and hold down again on your controller for 5-6 seconds. You should feel the desk make a slight bump. Release.
  3. After the bump, press up on your controller and the desk should function correctly.
