What is the Difference Between an Office Dissolution and an Office Liquidation?

December 20, 2022 by CRS Corporate Relocation SystemsBusinessCleaning

Whether small or large, all businesses require different services when changing office operations. Understanding the significant differences between an office dissolution and office liquidation can best help you manage and plan for your needs. Moving and storage companies can help businesses close down an office space through dissolution planning, as well as helping eliminate the baggage of unwanted office items through liquidation processes. 

Many different elements go into these services, but with the help of trustworthy movers and skillful planning, CRS Moving & Storage can eliminate any stress you may encounter. If you’re wondering how your business can benefit from dissolving your office location or what’s involved in liquidating unwanted items, here’s what you need to know. 

Understanding the Office Dissolution Process

Closing down a commercial office space can bring challenges, especially if you need more time and staffing. An office dissolution is sometimes necessary because a company is legally closing or a business owner voluntarily chooses to end their business. In other cases, such as during a recession, a decline in business opportunities can unfortunately cause an impending closure. Regardless, you can hire skilled movers and review your options for a strategic plan. 

An office dissolution process may include the following: 

  • Handling debts, liabilities, and various forms of credit 
  • Legal business matters and discrepancies 
  • Storing, donating, selling, or disposing of unwanted office items 
  • Document storage and other archival methods
  • Industry-related planning for office location closures 
  • Notifying staff, business partners, and local communities

Office dissolutions may also necessitate the following:

  • Logistical planning and organization
  • Liquidating furniture and office equipment
  • Short- or long-term commercial storage spaces 
  • Cleaning and disinfection of office spaces 
  • IT disconnect and other professional services 

Depending on the industry of your business, you may benefit from various services that create ease throughout the office dissolution process. Many business owners benefit from hiring movers and liquidating their office items, which differs from strategizing an office dissolution. Although office liquidation and dissolution are interchanged at times, these services differ in many ways because liquidation involves dealing with assets and liabilities. In the case of an office dissolution, liquidation is often a way to help get rid of any items to accrue funds for debts owed.  

What Does an Office Liquidation Involve?

Liquidating office items is a unique service many businesses can benefit from throughout different transitions. At times, liquidation is not voluntary and may be a means to salvage a company, whereas dissolution may be a voluntary process that involves liquidation. Removing unwanted items, furniture, and supplies may leave room for updating furnishings, financial gain, and paying off debts in a timely manner. Although, furniture liquidation can take time and may be influenced by the current market and conditions. 

CRS Moving & Storage can help you handle the following items during the liquidation process:

  • Desks and computer stations
  • Large conference tables 
  • Old carpeting 
  • Cubicles and other desk structures 
  • Office tables of various sizes 
  • Storage cabinets and structures 
  • Seating such as sofas and benches 
  • Equipment such as printers and fax machines
  • Advertising materials and old or archived files 

Professional services you may need when liquidating an office space include:

  • Eco-friendly office furniture disposal 
  • Furniture disassembly and reassembly
  • Transportation of items and furniture
  • Short- or long-term storage 
  • Help with donations and recycling 
  • Dismantling and disposal
