Used Office Furniture In Singapore

Singapore attracts many different companies from all around the world to set up offices locally, we’ve a great amount of physical office space in the central business district area, and outside of the CBD in tech parks located in the heartland areas.

Every month, there are many companies moving in and out of office spaces all across Singapore, they usually leave behind the old office furnitures. When a new company moves in, its not uncommon to see them discarding all the existing furnitures for new ones. As a result, there’s quite a sizeable marketplace for second hand office furnitures in Singapore.

The main advantage of choosing used office furniture instead of new ones is cost savings. These second hand goods can easily cost less than half of their original price; however, each type of furniture depreciate in value differently, for example, hard and durable furniture maintain their condition much better than things like office chairs.

There are many different places that you can look for used office furniture. On the internet, you can find many used furniture dealer websites, online classified ads, and offers on forums. Offline, you can find used furnitures in second hand retail stores and the physical shops of used furniture dealers. Unlike home furniture, you seldom find individual sellers (not dealers or resellers) for used office furniture.

Factors To Consider

Used office furnitures are an appealing option for entrepreneurs and small companies; they might be tight on budget, and are looking to save money in the furnishing of their office spaces. There are, however, considerations to take in mind when getting second hand office furnitures

1) Uniformity might be an issue
You might not be able to get the number of similar furniture that you need for your office; if you’re trying to create a uniform looking office space, this might be difficult to do with second hand furniture, as you’re limited to what’s available from the reseller.

2) Furniture not tailored to your office space
Finding a furniture that fits into your office and together with all the other furnitures, might also be an issue. For smaller sized furnitures like chairs, it’s not so much a concern. However, bigger items like desks, cubicles and office workstations might have been customised for its previous offices.

3) Condition of office furniture
Office furniture get used daily, heavy usage items like chairs won’t hold up well after a period of time, this would be most apparent in its spring and cushion. Office furniture and equipment deteriorate much faster than the furnitures and equipments in your home, and as such, the lifespan of your second hand office furniture might be relatively shorter too.
