It’s a clich`e to call New York the city that never sleeps, but it’s true, especially when it comes to business. New York has an enormous number of companies opening, upgrading, moving, and coming to a close every single day.
One of the many, many tasks facing a company in those processes is removing office furniture from the premises quickly. Thankfully, Nationwide Office Liquidators turns a liability — and a possible drain on your resources — into an asset. Office tower, front office, or anything in between, our professional team will efficiently assess the job as a lot, have the furniture removed from the premises quickly, and put money on your balance sheet. In fact, we began because there was a need for an effective way to sell large lots of used office furniture.
The truth is, selling used office furniture, especially a large amount of used office furniture, can be a difficult, frustrating process when you go it alone. It often needs to be removed from leased office space and stored, at your expense, somewhere else. True, you could throw it out, but that’s even more expensive: Office furniture is often heavy, and the heavier the garbage, the more it costs to throw out. In addition, just chucking your office furniture in the dumpster is hardly environmentally friendly.
Past, Present and Future
Many companies in the past chose to advertise lots for sale in the New York Daily News, New York Post or Newsday, but that was a time-consuming and expensive process. You often needed to have the ad run for at least a week to be effective, and wait for it to attract potential buyers. You’d then have to spend time haggling while the furniture continued to sit in your storage facility or take up room in the office, and it ate into your ability to focus on business.
Craigslist is a more modern alternative, but the reality of Internet advertising is this: you get what you pay for, and if you don’t pay for an ad, quality of respondents suffers accordingly. Craigslist is notorious for attracting unreliable and otherwise questionable buyers; people who may not be fully committed to buying the lot… or thinking they can haggle you down to a dollar for an office chair.
Then Ebay came along. It can move large lots of furniture, but you have no guarantee the bidder is serious, and you may find yourself in the middle of complex negotiations when it comes to shipping the lot. Even worse is trying to sell it piece by piece: You might find that getting rid of furniture piecemeal becomes an aggravating, time consuming process.
Of course, charitable donations are possible — and timeless — but charities don’t automatically accept everything you want to donate. They may not have the time or resources to pick up and store a large amount of furniture, and you may find yourself hunting for a charity to accept your furniture when you should be finding clients and getting things done.
Thankfully, you now have National Office Liquidators. So, save yourself the aggravation, and focus on your business: Contact Nationwide Office Liquidators, and we’ll turn a potential liability into an asset.
