We receive questions about office liquidation from time to time and thought we would take a moment to address some of the most common office liquidation questions. So, with this in mind, here are some of the most frequent questions we receive as an office liquidator.
What is office liquidation?
Office liquidation is the overall process of removing everything from an office space with a focus on the bulky office furniture that is so difficult to move. When called in office liquidators will enter the office space and begin breaking down all the office furniture such as desks, cubicles, and workstations. They will do so in a manner that saves the office furniture for a later resale. Once the furniture is out, the rest of the space will be cleaned to ensure a smooth transition to the next tenant of the office space.
The types of offices spaces that benefit from office liquidation is expansive. Attorney offices, insurance agents, accountants are all examples of offices that can use an office liquidator to help in a move or decommission. Not only these but places like private colleges, or a headquarter building can streamline their remodel or decommission with the use of a qualified office liquidator.
What happens to the liquidated office furniture?
Ownership of the office liquidation is given to the office liquidator at a predetermined price. This is a trade off that allows for spaces to be turned over in an expedited manner. If a lease is running out or a business is shutting its doors, they will no longer have need of the office furniture and will gladly turn it over to an office liquidator to ensure that all lease agreements and deadlines are met. Once in possession of the office furniture, the office liquidator will then sale it to a third party to stock their office.
What are the benefits of using an office liquidator?
Allowing professional office liquidation services is a huge benefit to many businesses, institutions, or organizations. One of the biggest benefits is time savings as we have already touched upon.
