business furniture questions

Will the furniture be assembled on delivery?

We understand that when your business furniture arrives, you may not have the time, manpower or skills to put your furniture together. If you need some support with this, our delivery and installation team will happily support you with furniture assembly. If you require this service, it will need to be booked prior to delivery so the team can ensure they have the right equipment on board.

How much do you charge for delivery?

As we operate across the UK, we must ensure that our delivery times and associated costs are covered. For this reason, we charge a fee to deliver your products to your location. This delivery charge will change depending on where you are based, so please ask a member of the team about delivery costs when you organise your furniture delivery. If you are based in the South East, your delivery is likely to be cheaper as you are closer to our showroom.

Can we view the business furniture before buying it?

We encourage our customers to pay a visit to our showroom to see our business furniture products prior to buying them. By doing this, you can ensure that the furniture is of good quality, will match your office decor and - most importantly - ensure it is the best fit for you. Our showroom expands across 39,000 sqft, and we have something for every office available for you to look at and try out! To visit our High Wycombe Showroom, simply give us a call and book a convenient appointment.

Can you remove our old office furniture?

For more information about this cost-effective service, please get in contact with a member of the team today.

Can I collect the furniture from your showroom?

You are more than welcome to visit our High Wycombe showroom to collect your chosen furniture. We ask that before you travel to us, you ensure your vehicle is of the right size to accommodate your furniture. Collections can be made by bookable appointment, and our loading bay is available for collection between 09:00 - 15:30 on weekdays only.

What is the delivery time for products on the website?

At Recycled Business Furniture, we understand that you will be keen to get your new office items into place as soon as possible. Upon ordering, we will advise you of expected delivery times and organise a suitable date with you for delivery. If you are waiting to move into a new location, please let us know, and we will try to work with you so that your furniture is not delivered too early.

What if the furniture arrives damaged or in a faulty condition?

In the unlikely event that your business furniture arrives damaged, please let us know straight away. If you are having your furniture assembled onsite, our team should notice any damage whilst they are putting your office items together; however, if you notice damage after we have left, get in touch, and we will aim to send you a replacement part or replace the item as soon as possible.

Where do you deliver business furniture?

Thanks to our convenient location along the M40, we have great access links throughout the country and make a variety of stops from Oxfordshire through to Birmingham. If you are not sure if we deliver to your location, get in touch with our team, and they will be able to advise whether we can support you with a business furniture delivery. Please note our delivery services are chargeable. This will be explained to you during a conversation with a member of the team.

How long should office furniture last?

Although nothing lasts forever, the business furniture you purchase with RBF is of high quality and should last for at least 5-10 years. Employees use office furniture for around 8 hours a day, five days per week (based on FTE). Whilst you expect to see some wear and tear after a while, how long it lasts will depend on the quality you are buying and the materials your furniture is made from.

How do I choose a good office chair?

There are several things to look out for when choosing the perfect office chair. You spend a lot of time sitting in an office chair, so they should be comfortable, have a high and supportive back rest and be able to offer a variety of adjustable positions. Your feet should be able to touch the floor at all times. Choose an office chair with a breathable fabric, so your body doesn't overheat. Your arms should be able to rest perfectly on the armrests whilst still being in line with your desk and keyboard. Our experienced team will support you in finding the best office chair for you in our vast showroom.
