Office movers typically offer a variety of services from office and commercial moving, furniture installations, moving bins & cart rentals, storage and even more increasingly furniture removal and decommission services. Statistics Canada reported nearly 65% of Canadians shifted to working remotely during the COVID-19 pandemic. As a result, many businesses are looking to office movers to help in the process of decommissioning their offices and work spaces.

This article will explore how hiring an office moving company can help you in the process of decommissioning your office.

Liquidate Assets You Can’t Use

Whether you’re moving to a new office, downsizing your office space or closing down your office you’ll need to liquidate the assets that you cannot use. The terms of your lease most likely specify that you can’t leave assets at your old office.

You might ask yourself, what do I do with unusable furniture, equipment, work stations, desks, cubicles, bookshelves, inventory racks and more? You will need to liquidate them but you have some options.

Determine Where Your Assets Should Go

As you plan your decommission, you should consider your company’s values. Environmental, social and your sustainability goals will direct you in determining where your assets should go. Below are some options for liquidating:

  • Donation
  • Refurbish
  • Recycle
  • Sell
  • Move
  • Storage

Retain the Value of Furniture by Hiring Office Movers & Installers

It’s important to hire professional office movers who specialize in furniture installations to carefully disassemble and remove usable furniture assets so that they retain their value and purpose, whether they will be sold, recycled, donated or repurposed.

Office Movers Can Redistribute Your Furniture

When you hire office movers to decommission your business, it’s important to include them in the initial planning stages. Many office movers have established relationships with local charities in Edmonton and Calgary, furniture refurbishers, and resellers to help you meet your company’s liquidation goals.

Professional office movers like Matco Moving Solutions work with companies to develop a furniture redistributing plan. Developing this plan can reduce the amount of items potentially going to a landfill, improve communities through charitable donations and potentially offset some of the costs associated with moving.
