How to Sell Used Office Furniture

We all want to remove unnecessary clutter from our offices. Most of the time, we don’t have any idea how to dispose things that consume a lot of space though we don’t really use them anymore, like used office furniture. Maybe because they need some fixing and you don’t have time to do that, they’re out-of-date and looks like you bought it from the next door antique store, or you just found out from your geek book that they are not ergonomically-friendly. Well, whatever the reason is, one thing is common. They’re useable but unnecessary.

Office furniture, especially those that are made by top-class manufacturers, digs a deep hole in our pockets. They are a little expensive and throwing them up at the dumpster may give us sleepless nights. No worries. There are a lot of ways to dispose them without having regrets. The best way? Of course, you can sell them.

There are a lot of people that are on a limited budget. They want to buy one but brand new office furniture is way too expensive for them. So what they do is buy used office furniture, light a cigar, and go on their merry way. It’s not just practical; it’s also rewarding. Imagine having an ergonomic chair that has an original price of $500, sold to you for only $200?

I know what you’re thinking and right off the bat, I want to say that “NO!” they aren’t professional hagglers nor desperate people seeking help from robbery syndicates. They are just simple people. Laymen that are going to benefit from the service YOU will provide. Don’t worry. This isn’t illegal. You want to sell you’re used office furniture? Here’s what you need to know to get started.

• Consider your Local Market

You need to face it. If there are more people that are trying to get rid of their stuff at your locality, then you need to reconsider selling yours locally. Even if you put a billboard as tall as the Eiffel Tower outside your house saying “Cheap Used Office Furniture!”, no one will buy. Go sell them at other places or sell them internationally.

• Sell your items Online

There are more used office furniture buyers online than any other place. Make use of online auctions provided by sites like eBay, Amazon, etc.

• Make use of Liquidators

These companies won’t make you produce even a bead of sweat. They’ll handle EVERYTHING! From the sale, to advertising, to money reception. All you need to do is provide the necessary information, sit down on your pool, sip some margaritas, wait for the payment, and then pay them their commission. Easy peasy!
