Office equipment liquidation is a tough task for any commercial office, but necessary to stay competitive and thrive in the ever-changing business landscape. However, liquidating your office furniture can be a pain-staking and costly process without the help of professional liquidators.
Whether your company is upgrading, downsizing, remodeling or relocating, you need to dispose of old furniture that is no longer useful in your new space. But where do you start? You could sell your equipment to a wholesaler, but that’s not necessarily the best option. Purchasing used furniture from a liquidator will likely get you more money in the long run.
Commercial offices that attempt to sell their unwanted furniture through online marketplaces face a variety of challenges, including the need to provide potential buyers with viewing and testing opportunities in-person, haggle prices and contract shipping arrangements. In many cases, these efforts result in a net negative payout to the company due to overhead costs and staff time spent on the process.
Moreover, commercial offices that attempt to sell their furniture through auctions often find themselves stuck with furniture that no one wants to purchase, including items that have been specifically designed to function in the specific environment the company is moving from. This often results in the need to properly dispose of these materials, which can cost more than the company received for the FF&E.
Liquidation companies specialize in this type of work and know how to minimize waste, maximize value and remove unused equipment quickly. A liquidation company will perform a thorough walk-through of your facility and create a detailed inventory of your assets. This is typically the first step of a comprehensive proposal that will include all labor, removal and disposal costs.
A detailed inventory of your unused furniture will be used to create a pricing plan for the sale. Liquidators will not only offer fair market values for your furniture, they will also take care of the entire disposal process from beginning to end. Unlike brokers, liquidators will commit to an agreed upon timeline and work within your allotted budget to make sure everything is done on time and as smoothly as possible.
The COVID-19 pandemic has changed how millions of people earn their living, with many choosing to work from home or at coffee shops instead of going into the office. If you have been one of the hundreds of thousands of workers to relocate your work to a different location, there may be some unused furniture that needs to be dealt with. The most efficient way to handle this is to sell it to a reputable office furniture liquidator, which can quickly and affordably remove cubicles and systems furniture in Los Angeles.
If you are preparing to relocate your business, contact an office furniture liquidation company as early in the planning process as possible. This will give the liquidation firm enough time to evaluate and photograph your furniture, take an accurate inventory and disassemble it. It is also important to allow for adequate time for removal from the leased or owned building as well.
