Fortunately for you with the current financial climate, it’s possible to get massive bang for your buck as used cubicles are becoming more readily available as (unfortunately) a lot of businesses have been affected by the recent great recession.Unlucky for them, but lucky for your wallet!
So, why is buying used cubicles a better idea than buying them brand new? And what are the disadvantages?
Used cubicles, as opposed to new, are going to save you and your company a bunch of money, while not compromising on quality and durability that you see in major knock offs. You can get the newest name brands such as Herman Miller at deep discounts, it all depends on what quality you want for what price. The quality of used products is going up as inventory is increasing, all while the price is staying the same at 25% to 30% of the original cost.
When you are looking at used cubicles, don’t always go for the first option, look around. Check popular auction sites or newspaper advertisements for the best deals, and if possible get a first hand look before you purchase. Make certain the used cubicle has everything you want before you buy. Large enough doors? Fabric covered panels? Does it match your office design?
- You get the picture.
When you buy used cubicles you are saving trees and money that could help your business grow! It only makes sense to check out used, if the value is there you can’t go wrong.
There are some disadvantages of purchasing used cubicles:
At the lower end of the price scale in anything, you are going to struggle to find something that fits your needs perfectly, you may have to make some sacrifices in what you want out of your cubicles. Maybe the color scheme may not be perfect, or the size may be a little off. You will have to make the decision yourself about whether the price is worth the sacrifice.
Unfortunately with second hand products, a lot of the time the warranty has ran out, so if anything happens to the used cubicles you will not get any money back. This is another clause you will have to decide upon, whether you think it’s worth the risk or not.
There are a few disadvantages to buying used compared to buying new, whether the risks outweigh the benefits is up to you. There is always choices to make when buying used products. Of course you get the better price at the end of the day which may be of more vital importance to your business!
