It’s a tough situation. Your lease is up, and you need to get office furniture and equipment liquidated before the end of the month. No worries- there are stress-free options. Depending on the size of your office, a reputable furniture dealer can offer to dismantle and move your office at no cost to your business. Depending on the age and condition of the furniture and equipment, you may receive an offer to purchase some or all of the equipment your business can no longer keep. The offer to purchase will probably not come anywhere near what you feel your equipment is worth, but once you factor in the labor, trucking and storage fees involved with an office move, an offer to purchase could be fairer then it may first appear.
Other things to consider are to contact local non-profits like the YMCA or a local food pantry to see if they can use any of the equipment. The salvation army has a truck that will come and pick up certain items as well. Not only does it feel good to donate to a good cause, these donations can be a write off at tax time.
If you need to clear out an office- pronto, contact at least two local furniture dealers who have experience with used office furniture and related products. A local furniture dealer will be your best option to complete your move in a timely and cost effective manner.
