Keep An Eye Out! 4 Qualities to Look for in Used Office Furniture


When you’re shopping for used office furniture, it can be overwhelming to know if you’re getting the best deal. At NW Office Liquidations, we want to make sure you’re satisfied with your entire process, from browsing our large showroom to our affordable delivery options. Read below for some top considerations that will simplify the buying process.

Sure it’s stylish, but is it functional?

We’re big fans of vintage pieces, like our used typewriter above. However, used office furniture should first and foremost make your workspace more productive while also saving you money. A sleek, narrow desk may look great, but consider if it’s enough workspace for an employee.

If you’re considering our wide range of height-adjustable desks, don’t forget to also purchase storage in the form of file cabinets or pedestals.

Functionality in chairs is also important. We currently have a large selection of fully loaded B & C style Herman Miller Aeron Chairs, shown above, that are stylish, ergonomic and comfortable, while also being over 40% off.

How much will it cost to fix cosmetic wear and tear?

Reupholstering, painting, and other cosmetic fixes can take a piece with great lines from good to great. However, many furniture stores offer minimal discounts on pieces with character, the cost of refitting them may make it so used furniture is not actually the investment that it seems.

At Northwest Office Liquidations, not only is our furniture discounted an average of over 50%, it is also quality-checked, so that while there is gentle usage present, wear and tear that will affect the overall aesthetic of the furniture will not be a problem.

Consider your Space. Will it fit?

While a large conference table may create an imposing figure, if it overwhelms the room, it won’t make for an enjoyable meeting place. Consider ceiling height, room layout and the current furniture in your space. File cabinets and storage containers are also essential for organizing your office supplies and saving space. SmartDraw is a useful software to help design your office. You can either design with our used office furniture dimensions in mind or design your ideal office, then call NW Office Liquidations with the dimensions of pieces you’re searching for to make a custom order.

Some of our favorite space saving pieces are HBC Distributors’ stackable chairs and folding tables, like the ones pictured above.

Be consistent when purchasing used office furniture for a large amount of employees.

It can be difficult to find matching used office furniture for more than 10 workspaces. Searching for office liquidations or multi-product sales on your own is overwhelming. When you work with highly experienced used office furniture showrooms like us, you can consider our large inventory of uniform products, like the massive shipment of Steelcase furniture below.
