The vast majority of our customers report that they cannot tell the difference between our recycled office furniture and new office furniture. Best of all, they save a ton of money and save the environment while they're at it.
When businesses move, their office furniture often finds itself unwanted. This can be for a variety of reasons - a dated style, poorly suited for the new space, a desire to change it up, etc.
At the exact same time, there are thousands of customers looking to buy new office furniture. These customers have their own requirements - it must be this size, this height, this color, this fabric.
The first step in the process is to save the old stuff from the landfill. This is not easy - it requires getting in touch with the people getting rid of it, arranging to pick it up before their move-out date, and finding a place to store it until a new customer can be found. That's where Eco Office comes in!
In order to make the whole process work, you have to store A LOT of office furniture, sometimes for a very long time. This is why scale matters - we have more than 30,000 feet of warehouse space and have tens of thousands of pieces of office furniture in stock.
During this time, we may also cut down larger work surfaces or panels to make smaller sizes -- this is what allows us to remain flexible and meet customer demands for unique configurations.
Most customers don't typically think "used office furniture" because they think it will have to be taken as is. This isn't true! recycled means we turn it into a product that most people think is completely new! For cubicles and workstations, most of the appearance is in the fabric that's on the cubicle walls. We are set up with dozens of choices for new fabric, which allow us to take a variety of used panels and turn them into a custom solution for you with a uniform fabric color, still at a substantial discount vs. new.
This option is massively popular with our customers because it combines the best of both worldds - a custom solution at a discount price, with no discernible drop in quality.
All of the product that leaves our warehouse undergoes an intense sanitizing proscess, including the use of steam cleaning at high temperatures with antimicrobial agents. The cleaning process occurs for every panel, ensuring sanitary delivery conditions for all our product.
Some customers want the most affordable option possible -- 100% used office furniture. This is what we call "AS IS" office furniture. That means we reclaim it, steam clean it, do some light touch up, and it goes out the door at a fantastic price. For small business owners or those just starting out, this is a unique and valuable option, especially when combined with a large selection and options for new office furniture like private office furniture, office chairs , conference tables, and office desks.
We sell all types of used office furniture in "AS-IS" configurations, including cubicles, file cabinets, some desks, etc.
The last step is new paint. This is especially important for file cabinets, which can see a dramatic difference in appearance with a fresh coat of paint.
Our paint booth is in operation all day, every day, because it is one of the main things that turns used office furniture into like-new office furniture.
This is the fun part about the office furniture business - saving money AND saving the environment.
Many of our customers find themselves asking why anyone would buy new office furniture when such an affordable and compelling option is available. Of course, we agree!
