What to Look for in an Office Liquidation Company

Hiring office liquidators can help corporations efficiently and responsibly dispose of excess office furniture and equipment while potentially recouping some of the costs associated with these items. The reasons to hire liquidators are many. Maybe you’re relocate your corporate office to new location as a result of growth or because your lease has ended. Perhaps you need to downsize your office space or close it altogether, because of Covid and new work-from-home rules. Or maybe you want to renovate an existing space – make it more contemporary, or to adopt a the new “hoteling” style.

Whatever your reason for hiring an office liquidation company, here are some important factors to consider before you sign a contract:

  1. Experience: Look for a company that has experience in liquidating office furniture and equipment. Ask for references and check their online reviews and ratings to get an idea of their level of expertise and professionalism.
  2. Location: Also, be sure you’re hiring an NYC office liquidator, who will know the ins-and-outs of the city. Office liquidators from Connecticut or New Jersey may not have the intimate knowledge of loading docks, which highways don’t allow trucks, service elevator hours and more.
  3. Reputation: Choose a reputable company that is known for its fair pricing, timely service, and responsible disposal practices. You can check their reputation with the Better Business Bureau (BBB) or other similar organizations.
  4. Services offered: Make sure the company offers the specific services you need, such as packing, transportation, and disposal of office furniture and equipment. Some companies also offer storage, if you need to store furniture or inventory during an office build out or in between leases.
  5. Pricing: Get quotes from several liquidators to compare prices and services. Make sure the company is transparent about its pricing structure and any additional fees.
  6. Insurance and licensing: Choose a company that is fully insured and licensed to operate in your area. This will ensure that your furniture and equipment are protected during the liquidation process.
  7. Sustainability practices: Look for a company that prioritizes sustainable practices, such as recycling or donating items, to minimize waste and reduce the environmental impact of the liquidation.
  8. Communication and customer service: Choose a company that communicates clearly and promptly and is responsive to your needs and concerns. Good customer service is essential for a smooth and stress-free liquidation process.
