How to Prepare for an Office Furniture Liquidation
March 15, 2023 by CRS Corporate Relocation SystemsCleaning
Relocating an entire office space takes months of preparation and hard work, which can be tricky to balance with the everyday tasks that running a business entails. Amongst the checklist of things to do is furniture liquidation, which is essentially the process of deciding what to do with your office furniture: do you keep, toss, or donate it?
There are many things to consider when choosing how to liquidate your furniture. What you ultimately end up doing with the furniture is up to you, but it can be very beneficial and time-saving to have some help. CRS Moving & Storage is here to help with all of your furniture liquidation needs, including packaging and transportation.
4 Steps to Prepare for an Office Furniture Liquidation
Office liquidation is just as important as the other parts of a business relocation plan, and it will really pay off in the long run to prepare yourself and your business for when the time comes. There’s no worse feeling than having blown off something major and then only having the weekend to make big decisions. In order to help make the process a little easier, consider these four steps to prepare:
Set Aside What You’re Keeping
First thing first, put a sticky note on everything you are keeping. These will most likely be the invaluable items, like office records and expensive IT equipment. All of these pieces of furniture will be safely packaged up and brought to your new office space.
Categorize the Rest
With everything you are keeping set aside, look at the rest of your items. They can be divided into three categories: trash, donate, recycle. Unusable items can be disposed of in an environmentally-friendly way, while others may be eligible for recycling. We offer green transportation and liquidation services. This means we are able to dispose of even the trickier items, like technology or IT equipment.
If you are interested in donating or selling, we can also help with the packaging and transportation of those items.
If you have finished categorizing all of your current office furniture and you realize you have a lot of pieces in the “to keep” section, you may want to consider storage. If you are downsizing your office space to keep up with current needs, storage can be a cost-effective way to keep valuable items safely tucked away. Storage units can hold a variety of items, like:
- Bulky or oversized office furniture
- Filing records
- Fake plants
- Unused IT equipment
We offer storage units at a facility that is climate-controlled, monitored 24/7, and has an in-house inventory management system.
Hiring a Professional Mover
The last portion of preparing to have your office furniture liquidated is hiring a professional mover. Once you have your furniture categorized, the professional movers can take it from there. CRS Moving & Storage provides all of the materials needed to safely package your furniture. Inventory is taken to ensure everything gets where it needs to go, whether that is a storage facility, your new office building, or an eco-friendly waste disposal facility.
Movers will also handle the setup and installation of your furniture, so you don’t have to skip a beat when it comes to valuable work time.
