What are the Benefits of Buying Used Office Desks

In an environmentally-conscious world, we are all giving more thought to product reuse. With companies offering used office furniture for sale, is this a good way to fit out your workplace?

Wrap data suggests that around 200,000 pre-owned office desks are reused every year in the UK. This helps to prevent an estimated 3,600 tonnes of CO2 from entering the atmosphere, as well as stopping perfectly good items ending up as landfill. Investing in second-hand office desks also saves UK businesses approximately £8.2 million in comparison to buying new.

This data provides clear evidence of the environmental and financial benefits of opting for used office furniture, but what about quality?

Is there a Place for Used Office Furniture in Contemporary Workspaces?

It is important for any business to make a great impression on employees, customers and visitors. You want to avoid a work environment that looks tatty, mismatched and outdated and this can leave some business owners and interior designers sceptical about second-hand office furniture.

The reality is that companies such as Recycled Business Furniture actively source top-quality office furniture that is excellent condition. Whenever possible, they will purchase multiples of the same desk range, in order that a spacious office can be fitted out with a matching style of desks.

Did you know that finding used office furniture for sale could mean that your interior is kitted out with Herman Miller or Knoll desks, for the price of a budget new range? This top brand office furniture is built to last and is in great condition, so it certainly will not feel like a compromise – it could actually be an upgrade! For the finishing touch, select branded, second-hand office chairs.
