While it’s often true that management isn’t too keen on replacing furniture every time there’s a move or a reconfiguration, sometimes it happens. Moving an entire office or suite of offices to a new location across the city, or to some swankier digs closer to the heart of San Diego can also mean new furnishings.
And that also means that the old stuff will have to be gotten rid of. However, office furniture removal is not something most businesses, schools, government agencies, or other entities in and around Downtown San Diego are equipped for.
This is where Junk King San Diego Downtown comes in.
Not only do we specialize in furniture removal of all types, including office furniture removal, we are the number one rated junk removal firm in the US for service and fair and transparent pricing. And, not to toot our own horn, we are also the first and the largest green junk removal operation in the nation.
Office or workplace relocation is a great opportunity to offload all those broken chairs, desks, bookcases, credenzas, and other unwanted or unusable office furniture pieces. Even if new furnishings are not in the plans with your office relocation project, getting rid of office clutter should be.
Depending on the size of your organization, packing and moving can be far more involved than just putting everything on a truck.
Thinking of relocating or planning to? Here are a few tips to help you with that.
Relocating Office Space and Office Furniture Removal
If your organization is upgrading its office furniture, maybe just downsizing your office space, or possibly even closing down your business, there will likely be office furniture to dispose of. And getting rid of old furniture and office equipment can be challenging.
However, there are a few ways to approach office furniture removal.
While you do have a few options, some methods of office furniture disposal can be time-consuming and take considerable effort. And some methods are simply bad for the environment.
Essentially, there are three common ways that you can dispose of office furniture:
- • If it’s usable and in decent condition, you can sell it.
- • An alternative approach for that same furniture is to donate it.
- • And for office furniture that can’t be sold or donated, you can have it hauled away.
While there are some advantages to selling office furniture, it takes some time and effort. And, if you have a short timeframe and limited resources, selling it may not be feasible. Donating also requires work on your part, but there is a tax benefit to consider,
And if your office furniture isn’t worth keeping, selling, or giving away, even having it hauled away can have some unintended complications.
Good Office Furniture Removal Versus Bad
There are definitely good ways to get rid of your old office furniture. Donating and reuse tops the list, while selling usable pieces is also a good way to go.
As the number of businesses and other organizations downsize, and the need for home offices is increasing, the demand for used or refurbished office furniture is also increasing. A few years ago, one firm estimated that the market for recycled office furniture would be worth $2.7 billion by 2020.
Disposing of your office furniture can also be difficult. For example, many municipal waste management trash companies do not accept office furniture. And, unfortunately, most private junk removal companies simply take your old office furniture to the nearest waste transfer station or landfill.
And this is what we consider “bad” office furniture removal.
That’s because, according to United States EPA estimates, up to 8.5 million tons, or 17 billion pounds, of office assets end up in US landfills annually. And all these otherwise recyclable pieces take up a great deal of space in landfills.
Landfills themselves pose a big problem for local environments as they can contribute to groundwater pollution and other ecological hazardous threats. And these hazards can pose a threat for decades after a landfill has been closed and capped.
This is why, as conscientious business owners and organization managers, we have a responsibility to keep old office furniture out of landfills.
