Protect the Environment with Recycled Business Furniture

Protect the Environment with Recycled Business Furniture

Environmental protestors causing disruption in the capital and children walking out of school to protest; it is clear that concerns are growing about our global impact.

The challenge may seem insurmountable, but we can all make changes to collectively make a difference. Recycled Business Furniture is playing a part in saving perfectly good used office furniture from ending up in landfill. The question is would you consider buying high-quality, used office desks, chairs and reception seating for your next office refit?

What Puts People Off Buying Second-Hand Office Furniture?

We all love to grab a bargain, but there is still this sense that used items are going to be inferior. The truth is, buying second-hand office furniture can make it affordable to purchase leading brands that may otherwise be out of your financial reach.

Top quality goods are expertly designed to optimise comfort and they are built to last. A second-hand ergonomic chair may have twice the lifespan of a new, cheap model. Recycled Business Furniture only selects used office desks, chairs and associated items if they are in mint condition.

We check that they are fully functional and give them a good clean before they reach our showroom. In many cases, you would never know that they were not brand new – come and see for yourself!

Stylish Collection of Used Office Furniture

If you have an image in your head of a mismatched workplace; a muddle of different styles, shapes and colours, you can dismiss that idea.

In many cases, Recycled Business Furniture will have multiple stock of the same item. In used office chairs alone, we could equip your workplace with:

  • Ergonomic Task Chairs from leading brands
  • Canteen Stalls in a choice of colours and designs
  • Reception Seating
  • Chairs for your meeting and break-out rooms
  • Stackable chairs for conferences and events

We may be able to offer items that perfectly complement your brand image and colours.

You can view a selection of our latest stock online. Alternatively, you are welcome to visit our Buckinghamshire used office furniture showroom. Located in High Wycombe, we just a short drive from London, Slough and Reading. We are open from 9am until 5pm Monday to Friday and free parking is available right outside the door.

Environmental Awareness Drives Second-hand Purchasing

As David Attenborough provides another televised warning about our environmental impact, it seems that interest in pre-owned goods is on the rise.

A survey by Business Waste identified that 45% of consumers were open to the idea of buying second-hand clothes, even if they hadn’t yet made a purchase. This shows a shift in perception that will hopefully be reflected in all consumer purchasing. We should be open to the reuse of high-quality items that help to save money and the environment.

Whether you work from a home study or are growing a sizable enterprise, take a look and see if Recycled Business Furniture can help you be a little greener. If you have any questions, please get in touch on 01494 801066.

Top Location for your Head Office

Top Location for your Head Office

As a supplier of pre-owned office furniture, we deliver to industrial estates, town centres and business hubs across the South East. It got us thinking, is London still the dream location or is there a rival for the top spot?

If you are looking to set up an office in the South East, a favourable location must include affordable rent, good transport links and a skilled local workforce. With this in mind, we sat on our quality second-hand chairs and undertook some research.

It seems that whilst London still has a considerable draw, the cost of renting both office space and living accommodation is prohibitive. There are great transport links, but driving and parking in the capital is a challenge. This has an impact on employees, suppliers and visitors. London was not at the top of any poll we could find.

The Office

In 2018, Slough hit the top of the leader board in a report compiled by Glassdoor, beating London, Milton Keynes, Oxford and Cambridge. This report looked at a range of factors including the cost of living, job opportunities and worker satisfaction.

Just a 30 minute train journey into London Paddington (and half an hour’s drive from our used office furniture showroom) Slough has fantastic facilities on the doorstep. The town is one of the most affordable in the Thames Valley and has a highly successful local economy.

The town boasts an active business community, including over 400 companies located on a single trading estate. This thriving economy attracts companies to set up in the town. It also has a strong allure for skilled employees who are looking for great opportunities and competitive salaries outside of London.

If Slough ticks all of the boxes for your business, you’re in good company. The town has the UK’s highest concentration of Global Headquarters outside of London.

Furnishing your Slough Office

Renting an office is the first step, but then you need to equip it. Recycled Business Furniture in High Wycombe, has the solution. If you are open to used office furniture, Slough is just a short drive along the A404 from our showroom. This is stocked with good as new, second-hand office furniture offered at affordable prices.
