Ghosts of furniture past - recycle your old office furniture

Old office furniture

You walk into your office on a Monday morning only to be met with a frightful sight.

Don't put it to the back of your mind or add it to your to-do list for next week. If you have decided to get rid of your old office furniture and need to find some cost-effective replacements, speak to RBF. We can support you to remove your old office furniture - either for recycling or reselling - and we have a huge warehouse full of nearly new office equipment just ready to take its place in your office.

In this months blog, we look at the damage your old furniture could be doing to your business and how we can support you to get rid of your ghosts and walk into a comfortable friendly space on a Monday morning.

The damage your old office furniture could be doing to your business

Unfortunately, if you are still working with outdated and damaged equipment - particularly in an office where you frequently invite potential clients to meet you - this could be doing damage to your company in a variety of ways.

Staff morale and retention can be seriously affected by older and broken down furniture and equipment. If they are expected to continue working with furniture that is broken or run down and potentially hazardous to them, it may leave them feeling undervalued and embarrassed of their workplace.

Visitors and potential clients - if they are visiting your offices - could leave thinking that you don't take care of the furniture in your offices, so why would you take care of them? Office furniture is a very visual representation of your business so ensure you always have your best foot forward when trying to impress the visitors and clients who come through your door.

That's why we suggest getting rid of your outdated equipment and looking into purchasing some new furniture to make your office shine again.
