If you are revamping your office, you need to dispose of old furniture. The problem is that most people are focused on their new furniture and forget about the former until they have to get rid of it. To ensure you do not fall into this mistake, you need to know the methods to use to dispose of your old office furniture.
Sell The Old Desks
The old office furniture you have is likely to still be in working order. This will make you reluctant to throw out the furniture. If you have desks that are still in good condition, you should look at selling them instead.
There are a lot of options when it comes to selling your old furniture. If your office is in a larger city, you can look for second-hand furniture resellers who will purchase all your old furniture, including the desks. Some upcycle specialists would be happy to buy your furniture.
Depending on the number of desks you have to sell, you can look at direct to consumer options such as eBay and Gumtree. Doing this will be more work on your side. This route also requires you to sell your furniture one piece at a time which can be very time-consuming.
Donate To Charity
One of the best ways to dispose of your old office furniture is to donate it to charity. It would help if you were looking for local charities who accept office furniture donations. It is important to note that not all charities will accept these donations, and you might have to contact them for further information.
Certain websites can help you when you look for charities to donate. These websites have been set up to recycle old furniture to charities and local schools that need it. Donating to charity is also good for your company image, and you might be able to get a tax break for this as well.
Contact The Council
If your furniture is damaged and cannot be sold or donated, you will need to contact your local council. Most councils offer removal of unwanted goods service, but you will need to pay a fee for this. You will generally be able to find out about this service on the council website, but you might need to contact them regarding this.
If the council does not provide this service, they will be able to direct you to companies offering garbage compactor so you can dispose your old furniture properly. Of course, these companies will charge more than the committee to remove your furniture. If you are going to use a removal company, you need to check that they are reputable, particularly if the council does not recommend them.
There are many methods you can use to dispose of your old office furniture. If the furniture is still in good working condition, you can sell it or donate it to a local charity. If the furniture is damaged, you will need to contact the council for a waste removal service.
