Rebranding? 5 Great Reasons to Consider Used or Pre-owned Commercial Office Furniture
Picture this. Your company has just rebranded, and you’ve spent a lot of money on the relaunch campaign. You need to revamp your office to fit the look and feel of your new branding but have a limited budget. How can your company achieve its objective without breaking the bank? The answer may be to consider incorporating some used commercial office furniture into your project. Here are 5 great reasons to consider used commercial office furniture in your redesign project:
Reason #1 – It’s Cost Effective
Using pre-owned furniture is very cost effective, typically a quarter of the cost of buying new. Startup companies can often save as much as 80% over the cost of brand-new furniture. Many of our clients utilize a combination of new and used furniture to create a customized space that is budget friendly. For example, using used cubicles with new fabric, and new filing cabinets with used surfaces.
Reason #2 – Your Style Your Way
Finding furniture to fit your unique style can be difficult. When you buy used furniture, you can use the money you saved to customize it and make it your own. Buying used office furniture also enables you to buy vintage and antique pieces. This can add a unique look to your office and create a homier feel. In some cases, it can be softer, unlike stiff, new furniture.
Reason #3 – Short Lead Time
In can take weeks or even months, to order new commercial office furniture. You can usually arrange for delivery of your used office furniture right away, and you won’t have to wait for backorders or shipping.
Reason #4 – You’re Helping the Planet
According to the EPA, furniture waste generated by Americans in 2017 totaled 12.2 million tons, and over 80% of that went to a landfill. Even more startling, is that office furniture is the primary source of furniture waste because many times organizations don’t have the resources to sell or donate the furniture on their own. Diverting reusable office furniture from landfill protects the environment by reducing the demand for timber, metals, plastics, and fabrics, reducing carbon emissions produced during the manufacturing process and disposal, and by diverting heavy durable goods from landfill. Buying used office furniture is good for your budget – and good for our environment!
Reason #5 – Affordable Quality Brands
Since used furniture is cheaper, you may be able to afford higher quality brands. At OFS Interiors, we utilize our 50+ years of industry partnerships to deliver high-quality premium brands like Artopex, HON, Carolina, Arcadia, Encore and AMQ. All our pre-owned furniture goes through OFS’s rigorous 20-point inspection process to clean, disinfect and survey all working parts. Any parts that aren’t fully functional are replaced. Furniture that doesn’t pass our inspection will not be offered for sale.
