If you are looking to sell your second hand office furniture than you've come to the right place. We buy used office furniture and below are some important information you need to know when selling us your furniture.
Used Office Furniture Quote
We might consider giving you a quote online if it’s a small office. When we say small, we actually mean if it’s less than 30 pieces of furniture. Now, to sell your pre-owned furniture to us, you need to:
• Email us some photos of the furniture you want to sell. • Let us know the location- whether it’s upstairs or downstairs, elevator available or stairs only. • Let us know if we have to carry the furniture by hand a hundred meters to the loading bay or if the truck will right outside the door.
We would prefer you make a list of available furniture and take photos. We do not advise taking pictures of everything at once mainly if it’s in a very large amount. Also, it is best to use different colored stickers to differentiate what to keep from what to sell. This is very important for both parties for clarity purposes as you may still want to retain certain pieces of furniture.
Factors that determine what we pay
Quality and condition: The value of furniture is entirely dependent on its quality and condition. Chances are that furniture manufactured by well-known companies will have more value than unbranded furniture. Also, A furniture in a better shape and condition will have more monetary worth and serviceability than that in an awful condition.
Labour cost Vs Furniture value: The amount of time and resources spent to remove the furniture also play a vital role in determining what we pay.
In some cases, it may not be worth it for us to buy the furniture because the cost of labour exceeds the value of the furniture involved. In this situation, we will direct you to our disposal service where you will be charged to have your furniture evacuated. The charge is calculated based on your furniture value and worth.
Unlike new products that has not been altered and just coming out straight from its packaging, there is a lot of work involved in the used furniture we buy from you. Sometimes, the amount we offer may seem paltry, but there are plenty of costs required to get them back in shape.
Labour: It takes a lot of work and energy to disassemble and move the furniture from its location, often very hefty and requires two or more people to carry, clean and tidy them up.
Transportation: they often require truck and workforce to move the furniture out of the premises.
Storage and display: Needs a space big enough to store and display the furniture
Advertising: We also spend a lot of money on advertising to successfully sell the furniture
Administration: This involves phone calls, email, inventory and general handling of products.
To get a better idea of how this works, call a carrier company ask how much it will cost to move your pre-used furniture out of the building, then also contact a storage company and ask them the cost of storing your furniture. These costs will help you make an estimate and make an enlightened decision whether you should sell to us or not.
Why we think you should sell the furniture to us. There are many reasons why you might need to offload your used furniture to us;
• Let’s be honest, one person’s delicious meal might be another person’s poison. This saying also exists in real life situations. Storing furniture is not always the answer as they lose value over time. We have seen many instances of this. Companies store their furniture to use them in the future but end up selling them to us for a much lower price a few years later because the design and colour are no longer fashionable and outdated
• Task chairs may fail to adjust appropriately because the adjustment levers have been in the same position for too long, they may have been exposed to moisture, some might even have moulded. All these issues leaving the condition and value of the furniture in shambles, storage cost accumulates and money washed down the drain. Don’t worry. There is surely a way out, sell it!!!
• You could be moving to another office in another town or state and would prefer not to carry all the old furniture to your new office, or you’ve gotten a lot of complaint from employees about antique chairs and outdated reception furniture.
Whatever the reason might be, don’t just throw your old furniture in the nearest dumpster. You can sell it to us if it’s still usable. Not only will you be doing your part for the environment by going green, but it could also help save a few bucks for a new office.
Yes, you might get a better offer by selling the items online directly. However, some people underestimate the time and effort in marketing to separate buyers. You will notice that most buyers work during the day and, therefore want to pick up on the weekend or after hours. Some buyers also delay payment and, you will end up sending and waiting for emails only to find out that he/she is no longer interested in buying the furniture. Different buyers involve not only lots of emails but also different pickup hours, which could be very tough to arrange. P: 09 8268211 M: 022 38 39 400
