Frequently asked questions
Why should I buy Used office furniture instead of new?
- Used office furniture costs less than new: Ufficio Furniture obtains all it's used goods from downsizings, bankruptcies and closings of all kinds at pennies on the dollar and then passes those savings on to you!
- New furniture will depreciate from 25 - 50% of it's original cost: as soon as you take it out of the box new furniture begins to depreciate in value. Used furniture comparatively retains much more of it's value after purchase thus making it a better investment overall.
- High quality Used office furniture costs about the same as low quality new office furniture: High quality office furniture costs a lot of money. Most companies can't afford the cost of brand new high quality office furniture and due to budgetary constraints are forced to equip themselves with new (albeit cheap/low quality) furniture. Cheap furniture breaks, has no resale value, doesn't look as good and doesn't feel as good. Well made Used office furniture is more ergonomic and comfortable; not only will you reap the benefits in initial cost savings but you'll also see productivity increase as your staff are happier and better able to function in a comfortable ergonomic work environment.
- Used office furniture has proven itself: Like most things, furniture, if it's going to break, will usually do so in the first month or two of use. With new furniture you have to learn the hard way what's going to break and what isn't; then you have to lose the use of it while it's being repaired costing you time and money in lost man hours and shipping costs (yes sometimes even when it's under warranty). By purchasing quality used office furniture you save yourself the hassle as used furniture has withstood the test of time and is much less likely to give you problems in the future.
- Buying Used office furniture places less strain on the environment and our natural resources: Yes that's right, recycling used office furniture back into the marketplace prevents that furniture from taking up space in landfills, saves energy, removes the need for further polluting the environment by processing more raw materials to create new office furniture.
- No delay in purchasing used office furniture: Used office furniture is in stock and available for immediate shipping unlike new office furniture where you look at the catalogs and floor models, choose the colors and fabrics you want then wait for weeks or even months while the furniture is manufactured, and shipped to you. No delays in purchasing your used office equipment and furniture and having it delivered immediately means no down time, no interruptions, no delays, no need to waste time tracking shipments and following up with sales staff to see where your order is.
Isn't all used office furniture damaged or dirty?
- NO! As a matter of fact, if you come to the Ufficio furniture warehouse/showroom you'll have trouble distinguishing the difference between most of our new and used office furniture.
