Used Office Chairs

If you order used office chairs from an internet store, there's a strong chance you won't be able to tell the difference between the chairs you receive and a set of brand new ones. Respectable online retailers will not sell chairs with stains, rips, or other obvious defects. This would result in a vast amount of returned items. It would create more work than profit, and cost more money in labor than the distributors could afford.

Great Office Chairs within Your Budget

If you're working within a tight budget, as most companies are, there are two viable options. The first choice is to purchase inexpensive new furniture. The advantage of purchasing brand new chairs is that they are guaranteed to have zero defects, and the disadvantage is that the chairs might not have the greatest quality. This isn't to say that expensive chairs are guaranteed to be more comfortable than cheap ones. However, it's hard to use the best materials and pay utmost attention to detail while manufacturing office furniture at the lowest possible costs.

The other option is to purchase used furniture that has greater quality. Once any product, be it an automobile, musical instrument, or office chair, has been used, its market value declines significantly. People save thousands of dollars by purchasing great cars that have limited mileage on them, and the same can be said of office furniture.

If nobody can decipher a used chair from a new one, there will be little backlash in purchasing pre-owned furniture. The employees will probably be grateful for having comfortable chairs. Whether you're setting up a home office or designing a multi-cubicle floor plan on a budget, purchasing used chairs can help you find the right balance between quality and financial prudence.
