Everyone asks me if an upright is better or a canister vacuum. It all comes down to personal preference. Uprights are great because typically they are all-in-one. Most of the time they are easier to store. If they are like Oreck or Riccar Supralites, they are super lightweight, but can be heavier if they have tools on-board.
If you prefer an upright, we carry different types of Upright vacuums by brands like Oreck, Riccar, Sebo and Simplicity.
