Reasons to Consider Used and Refurbished Office Furniture

Obviously, you’re likely to find used office furniture in everything from poor to excellent condition. Look for refurbished, reconditioned or remanufactured furniture instead.

When office furniture and cubicle systems are refurbished or reconditioned, the old finishes are replaced with new ones, trim is repainted, and worn, faded fabrics are replaced. Virtually every product you buy should be in “like new” condition.

Advantages include:

  • Select laminates, trim and fabrics in colors and styles that harmonize with your office decor;
  • Customize and reconfigure components as needed to fit your space;
  • Update your existing cubicles with refurbished pieces;
  • Save 30% to 70% off the price of new office furniture;
  • Go green and achieve LEED certification.

This month we’re encouraging you to check out the products available from EthoSource, one of the nation’s premier providers of pre-owned, refurbished and new office furniture, which is headquartered in Morgantown, PA. The company’s retail showrooms include EthoSource of Philadelphia in King of Prussia, and EthoSource Reading.

One of their specialties is refurbishing Herman Miller Ethospace cubicles and workstations to look and function as if they were new. Choose from their vast inventory of used and refurbished cubicles and chairs, or have the fabrics and finishes customized to your specifications.

The Ethospace system is often called the “Cadillac of office cubicles.” Panels are anchored by virtually indestructible steel frames that accept dozens of cables and wires for power and data. The frame and tile system allows you to choose from a huge variety of tile options, configurations and storage options. Nothing could be better than finding this high-end furniture at a steeply discounted price!

Buying pre-owned office furniture will enable your business to help protect and preserve the earth’s resources. Manufacturing new office furniture takes a lot of raw materials, energy and labor. Repurposed furniture is a great option for companies that are serious about green initiatives or are pursuing the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED certification.

Many dealers sell used desks, chairs, cubicles and workstations “as is”, which means they’ve made few, if any, repairs. Avoid buying these items sight unseen. Be sure that any used pieces you intend to buy are not dented or scratched. Seeing the furniture in person will also give you a better idea about the size and scale of the pieces.

All businesses, small and large, want to save money, so buying used office furniture can be an excellent decision. Use our directory to find office furniture stores in the Philadelphia area that offer products to fit your budget.
