Items That You Cannot Take With You During an Office Liquidation
January 15, 2023 by CRS Corporate Relocation SystemsCleaning
Whether you are downsizing your office or you have a different vision for your new office, you may have furniture and other items you no longer need. Instead of disposing of or selling them yourself, our experienced movers at CRS Moving & Storage offer liquidation services. This allows you to make the most of your unwanted furniture by donating it or selling it. However, not all items qualify for liquidation.
Our New York movers have over 20 years of experience providing unmatched services to businesses of all sizes. We have the skills and tools to take on your entire move, including liquidation services. We will go through all your items with you to determine what you don’t want to bring to your new space and which items are eligible for liquidation. You may not be able to liquidate certain items based on condition, age, and value, but we can still help you dispose of them.
What Items Do Not Qualify for Office Liquidation?
When liquidating your office furniture, it’s important to remember that some items may not have enough value to donate or sell. In these cases, we can still help you get rid of these items by disposing of them for you. However, items you cannot liquidate often have the following qualities:
When assessing the furniture you want to liquidate, we go over the age of each item. According to the IRS, the typical lifespan of a piece of office furniture is seven years. As an item gets older, it decreases in value. Therefore, if anything in your office is over seven years old, we may be unable to liquidate it.
Even if you have a piece of furniture or other items less than seven years old, it may still have stains, cracks, or scratches that significantly decrease its value. Furniture in this condition often has difficulty getting sold or donated, so we may not be able to liquidate damaged items.
Business needs and styles change constantly, so some of your furniture may no longer fit these expectations. For example, many companies are straying from individual cubicles and favoring larger workstation areas. Also, the shift to digital record-keeping has decreased the need for filing cabinets and other storage. Businesses may also want more modern furniture that has a contemporary feel. If your furniture is outdated or no longer suits the needs of companies, we may not liquidate it.
The brand of your office furniture may also impact its value. People tend to purchase furniture from brands they recognize and trust, but if your items do not have an easily identifiable brand name, they may be more challenging to liquidate. Depending on the specific item and its condition, the brand name may prevent it from getting liquidated.
