Eco Office will buy specific types of office furniture (Haworth cubicles, metal filing cabinets) directly from end-users.
For certain other types (chairs, desks, conference tables), we don't buy them directly, but we may be able to help you find local liquidators and brokers that might be willing to help you. Feel free to contact us to ask for help, but please read this entire page first.
We primarily buy used cubicles, and specifically Haworth-brand cubicles. If you are looking to sell a large quantity of used Haworth cubicles, please do contact us right away. We are one of the largest buyers in the country for this type of product and will buy this product from end-users, liquidators, and brokers.
We typically buy locally to the San Francisco Bay Area, but if you have a large inventory at a great price, we will buy from other cities and states, so please contact us.
We will also buy the following cubicle parts:
We will buy all brands of metal file cabinets if they are the following type:
It is typically difficult to resell items on the second list, e.g. chairs/desks/conference tables. It isn't that your stuff isn't nice, it's that it can't be efficiently resold to others. Typical reasons are: they are never sold in large quantities of the same type (conference tables), don't disassemble and move well (desks), or don't generally age well (chairs).
That said, you might get lucky if you have a large number of the same thing. For example, if you have 25+ of the same type of standing desk, or if you have 50 Herman Miller Aeron chairs, we can usually find someone to take those.
The most important thing we need to give you a quote on your office furniture is a detailed list of what you have. Here are some guidelines for how that should look:
We often are asked to buy office furniture "sight unseen", which means we have to decide on a price before we ever see it. We sometimes do this and we sometimes don't, and that comes down entirely to the qualtiy of the photos. Here's a guide to taking photos of your used office furniture:
Many larger commercial buildings have specific requirements for furniture removal that tenants may not be aware of. For example:
Every furniture purchase is different. What's important to you -- price, timeline, convenience, etc? If you want the highest price, it's best to plan ahead, disclose all damage, and ask us to remove only the things we are buying. To illustrate the point, here are some of the things that frequently come up and may affect the price:

By selling or properly disposing of your used office furniture, you're making a huge difference in the environmental footprint of the world around us. Just imagine how much landfill space would be taken up if you didn't properly recycle it.
This one small act of conservation can mean as much or more positive impact on our environment than what you drive or what resources you conserve at home. Give yourself a pat on the back for going green!
