Choosing Used Office Furniture

Multicolored Office Chairs

Buying used furniture for your office should make you more discerning when it comes to choice. You still have to follow certain guidelines to ensure you are getting the right furniture for your office space and your employees.
 
Used office furniture shops in Las Vegas offer something special and unique because each piece captures what a buyer should have in their office. However, New Life Office suggests that you should know what to look for when buying used furniture.
 

Tags

 
Tags would tell you where the item was sourced, and help you decide whether to refurbish it or not. Price tags also help you determine whether an item should be sold at its new price or not. If the furniture comes from a department store and you know how much it might have originally cost, do a little math and see if the new price is worth your money.
 

Quality of Construction

 
You have to be knowledgeable on quality. Check the sturdiness of an office table. Listen if the drawers creak if you open or close them. Be wary of hinges – are they secured? A few scratches and dents here and there are all right as long as they don’t compromise the sturdiness and functionality of the furniture.
 

Material

 
Check the materials of the furniture and see for wear and tear. Check if the material is aesthetically pleasing and comfortable. Know what looks good in your office and what is comfortable for you and your employees to use. A chair too soft might not help your employee concentrate on work. 
 

Ergonomics

 
More than comfort, keep in mind the health of your employees. A desktop computer should be at their eye level, and the table and chair shouldn’t be too high that they have to exert effort while typing or writing. For chairs, find ones that have good back support
 
Check the seat height, width, and depth, including the material. At least choose a seat with cushion, backrest, and lumbar support. You can find a lot of ergonomic chairs and other used office furniture in Las Vegas furniture stores.
 
Used office furniture is not an outdated idea. It works in most offices, and if you’re lucky, you can get the best items for an affordable price.
