    It appears the entire floor is uneven. This means the house is not level and might need someone to go into the crawlspace and put blocks under the floor joists to level them. If you're not handy at such work, better get a contractor or friend to help do this. Good Luck!

    If the basement is below you can level it s l o w l y. Keep a level on top till it's where you want it or till you see too much resistance to your floor above. There are other methods but this is the only one I'm familiar with.

    You could use shims under the cabinets to level them before attaching to the wall.

    Maybe add adjustable sturdy feet to bottom of each piece!?

    Don't level the floor. Level the cabinets. Use wood shims to level the cabinets. That's how kitchen cabinets are leveled.

      Thank you the shims and brackets sounds like the best solution

    You probably just need something to hold your storage units to the wall so they won't tip over. We used "L" brackets for our china cupboard. Could something like that be used? Probably need something more invisible but something like that would work, I think.

    I think shims are the answer unless you can use some kind of brackets that I mentioned.
