FAQ

Regardless of the scope of your office project, Office Furniture NOW! understands that you will have questions regarding our company, our services, and the products we sell. Most often, these questions can be answered with these FAQs from previous projects:

When will I get my furniture?
This depends on your immediate need and the type of furniture you’re buying:

  • ITEMS WE HAVE IN-STOCK (used or new): Most items in 1-3 days except for cubicles which will usually be delivered within 4-8 days.  If you have a truck and want to take any furniture with you, you can!
  • QUICK-SHIP ITEMS: 1-2 weeks
  • SPECIAL ORDER ITEMS: 3-8 weeks
  • REFURBISHED OFFICE FURNITURE: Deliver in about 2-3 weeks. If you have a special date you’re trying to meet, let us know and we’ll do our best to accommodate it.
  • REFURBISHED CUBICLES: 3 weeks for medium and small orders. 4-5 weeks for large orders.

What is recycled office furniture?
Office furniture is a recyclable product! Just because it has become outdated or outmoded in functionality, does not mean that it needs to be sent to the landfill. Remanufacturing, refurbishing and/or reusing office furniture diverts it from the solid waste stream and sends it back out into the commercial world with a facelift.  You can either supply your own furniture to be refurbished or purchase “new” remanufactured furniture from us. The benefits are many, including an average savings of 30 to 50%. Recycling office furniture is not only good for the environment but it makes good business sense%

What’s the difference between new, used, recycled, refurbished or remanufactured office furniture?

  • NEW office furniture is factory fresh, never used furniture.
  • RECYCLED office furniture refers to any post-consumer office furniture that has been diverted out of the solid waste stream and back into the market with or without repairs. This includes remanufactured, refurbished, and used (as is) office furniture.
  • RE-USED, USED or AS-IS office furniture is recycled office furniture that has been returned to the market for sale without repair or improvement to its appearance. It has had one or several prior owners and will show some wear. Office Furniture NOW! fixes drawers and makes sure there are keys and file bars on our used furniture. We sell only high-end used furniture, passing along considerable cost savings to you.
  • REFURBISHED or RE-MANUFACTURED (“re-man”) office furniture is used furniture or cubicles that have significant repair work done to it to return it to near factory condition. For example, file cabinets are repainted, cubicle panels or chairs are reupholstered, and desks are refinished.  The end result is used furniture that has been made to look new again. Lots of money can be saved by purchasing refurbished rather than new office furniture.

No matter which of the above options you determine best fits your needs, be assured that these options are better for the environment than purchasing brand new office furniture.

Why should I consider buying used or refurbished rather than new office furniture?
