Second hand office furniture doesn’t have to mean second rate quality or service

We specialise in second hand office furniture of the highest quality for home and office work spaces

The way we work is changing. The long-term effect of coronavirus has caused a massive shift in the way we work, the spaces we work from and the budgets we have available to kit out our working areas. Office buildings are being let or put up for sale and some organisations are downsizing to accommodate less workers onsite; the culture of home working and rota-based office working is here to stay for a long time to come.

With businesses moving away from the pre-2020 impressive corporate feel and more towards the practicality of housing reduced numbers of employees safely, furniture reconfiguration comes into play. This is where second hand office furniture can help to reduce costs and also help our environment.

Throwing out old office furniture really should be a thing of the past if we are to help keep these large items out of landfill and stop being an environmental burden. The financial benefits are staggering when you consider there is around a 70% cost saving against new office furniture items. Around 1.2 million office desks and 1.8 million office chairs end up in UK landfill sites in the UK, according to the Waste & Resources Action Programme (WRAP). More and more businesses are now focusing on sustainability and by reusing second hand office furniture, we can all make small changes that have a big long-term impact.

There are more benefits of using second hand office furniture that you think and here are a few ideas for you:

Cost – we’ve already touched on the potential cost saving, so you can save a significant amount of money if you are struggling with cash flow.

Eco-friendly – we are now being educated more than ever about the importance of recycling and reusing where possible; we teach our kids about it, so we should set a practical example that goes reaches further than the home recycling wheelie bin.

Customisation – just because you have invested in second hand office furniture it doesn’t mean that you can’t achieve a consistent and stylish look. Architectural branded wrapping is now something that is easy to organise to re-cover furniture and give it a new lease of life in keeping with your brand image.

Timing – there is usually a long lead time for brand new office furniture to be manufactured and distributed. With second hand items, this isn’t the case and you should find that the furniture you order will usually arrive far quicker.

Whilst second hand office furniture may not appeal to you in the first instance, it is a great choice when you need to make immediate changes to your business workspace without breaking the bank.

If you’d like to find out how to maximise the space you have to ensure social distancing is maintained, we are on hand to work with you and provide detailed 2D and 3D drawings of your new layout so you know exactly how your new configuration works.

Let our friendly team of second hand office furniture specialists plan, design and fit out your business space at home or with reusable quality furniture items.
