When you are setting up your new office you might want to save some money by getting second hand office furniture. Most of all because the prices of used office equipment is way lower than the normal pricing of office furniture.
Second Hand Office Furniture
With the time we are living in this shouldn't be a problem of course. There are more people who are losing their job than people who are getting a job, so when you look at it from that perspective there should be getting more desks available. First of all it is important to make an inventory of what you need for your workstation. Are you working at home or are you going to work in an office? Do you need to get desks for small spaces in order to save room? Or even an l shaped corner desk, just to save some extra room.
Used Office Cubicles
If you are looking for cubicles to put your employees in, there are a lot of places online where you can find used cubicles. They are like new, only a little less pricey.
Refurbished Office Furniture
But if you are only one person looking for some new furniture, but without the price tag, you might want to look for some refurbished office furniture. This is furniture which was broken at some point, brought back to the manufacturer and he repaired it. This means the furniture is as good as new. They just cannot sell like it is new so they sell it for a 'refurbished' price. A price you might be able to afford.
Where to look for 2nd Hand Office Furniture
There are a bunch of places where you can actually find some second hand office furniture, for some places you need to be lucky, but you can also find the things you need.
Your Local Circulation Store
Every big city has a circulation store, where all the old stuff of people is brought in to, gets cleaned up and is sold to other people again. Most of the times the profit goes to a charity or something, so you are doing a good deed to go to a place like this as well. Check out Google Maps to find a place near you where they recycle office furniture.
Amazon for Used Office Equipment
But of course, in our days we should go to the internet. Although there are, of course, also a lot of specialized websites for selling used office furniture, you should not forget Amazon is reselling used stuff as well of course.
Look for instance at these used conference tables. Just tables looking like they were new, which they are, but you can get a used version as well.Credit: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0026N6LT8/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&tag=infobarrel0a7-20&linkCode=as2&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B0026N6LT8

When you have no other option, you can always go and look on Craigslist. People put everything on there, so there is used furniture on it as well! Good luck with finding your second hand office furniture!
