There are a modest number of used furniture dealers in Singapore, most of them are located away from the city area, tucked in various industrial estates in the heartlands.
One of the biggest issues you’ll face is locating and getting to the dealer’s outlets or warehouse. If you’re looking to sell your furniture, you might want to request the dealer collect it from your house, but this would depend on the type of furniture that you’re selling, and they’ll also charge a fee for the collection.
If you want to buy used furniture from the dealer, you should first make a call to the dealer to see if they have the type of furniture that you want. Sometimes you’d also have to call the dealer because their shops are only open on an appointment basis.
Used furniture dealers buy and sell home and office furnitures, there are also a niche group of them dealing in antique furniture. In most cases, you can get furnitures from dealers at an attractive price, but this does not apply to antique furniture. Office furniture dealers tend to be larger in operations, some of them provide a full range of office furnitures. They also offer complementary services like moving and disposal of furniture.
Many of the furniture dealers do not have websites online, but you’d be able to find their business and contact information on business listings like Insing, Streetdirectory, Eguide, Hotfrog, etc. If you want more information, you’d usually have to drop these business owners a call to see if they buy and sell used furnitures. You might also want to note that there are a number of dealers who converse mainly in Mandarin, but speaking to them in simple English shouldn’t be a problem.
