Has your office staff come back to the office, or have you decided that your team can continue working from home and that you no longer need to rent expensive office space? Virtual and remote offices are a new reality! However, the termination of office space leaves you with the question of what to do with all that office furniture, equipment and supplies.
“The impetus for working from home has shifted considerably since 2020,” states a Pew Research Center study. “Nearly two years into the COVID-19 pandemic, roughly six-in-ten U.S. workers who say their jobs can mainly be done from home (59%) are working from home all or most of the time. The vast majority (83%) say they were working from home even before the omicron variant started to spread in the United States.” Their workplace was either closed or unavailable or they simply choose not to work from the workplace, and many relocated away from the area where they used to work and are teleworking.
Commercial Office Furniture Cleanout
Clearing out an office can be a big task. Commercial offices are filled with all types of furniture: desks, chairs, sofas, conference tables, side tables, bookcases, shelving, credenzas, file cabinets, whiteboards, decorative pieces and more. You could go through the trouble of selling these items, either one by one or as a lot; there are plenty of people looking for office furniture bargains. But this takes a lot of time to advertise and arrange.
An alternative is to donate your office furniture. Nonprofit organizations in your community are always in need of furnishings for their own offices, but more importantly, they can put these items into their showrooms for sale to raise money for community-support programs. Your donation will solve the problem of disposing of office furniture and will benefit the community that supports your business.
123JUNK’s commercial office cleanout services can empty your offices in as little as one day. Whether you need to be out quickly after a lease termination, or have a week or even a month to clear out, we can schedule a pickup to help you out. Perhaps you’ve sold some of your office furniture, but have items left over. Consider donating those. We’ll pick them up, deliver them to the charity partners on your behalf, and provide you with a receipt for tax deduction.
Commercial Office Equipment Cleanout
In addition to office furniture, offices have a ton of electronic equipment as well: copy machines, computers and computer accessories, monitors and monitor stands, printers and printer ink, scanners, TVs, fax machines, shredders, routers, telephones, camera equipment, and even kitchen small and large appliances.
The same route of advertising and selling can be taken with office equipment, however, the disposal of these items can be different. Since they contain chemicals and hazardous materials like lead, mercury or beryllium, they cannot be sent to a landfill. If they are not incorporated into another office, they must be either donated to a charity or delivered to an authorized recycling center. (See our post on E-Waste Removal and Disposal.)
Again, 123JUNK is available to assist with the commercial office cleanout services. Whether you have broken items that we can haul to the electronics recycling center, or pieces to donate to your local charity, we make the job easy. Our professional team will load and haul away any office equipment items you no longer want.
