A standard four-drawer carbon steel filing cabinet can weigh up to 150 pounds empty. When full, it weighs a lot more.
According to the Kitchen Cabinet Manufacturers Association, the weight limit for an average kitchen cabinet is 600 pounds. It sounds like a lot, but keep in mind that this is an average for the entire closet (not per shelf).
Moving Vertical Filing Cabinets Vertical filing cabinets are easier to move, or the professional moving companies you have hired will need a trolley and some straps. Use the trolley to tilt the filing cabinet away from the wall until you reach it.

Closets are usually not hung or suspended from the ceiling. However, there are kitchen projects that require cabinets to hang on a central island or peninsula. You can do this with an additional bracket in the ceiling frame and above each cabinet.
To secure each cabinet to the adjacent cabinet, I use long drywall screws. To fit the facades perfectly, I remove the doors, mount the cabinets to the wall loosely, lock the facade frames together, drill and adjust the screws, insert the screws, then turn the cabinets against the wall.
Tip: Some plumbers screw a board called a ledger along the entire wall to hold the cabinets together. The ledger works as long as the wall is flat and plumb. Otherwise, you’ll have to lug the lockers behind you to adjust them and the book will get in the way. Rest the cabinet on the screws or latch.
