Going to one of these auctions can save a company several hundred dollars if they carry out the bidding properly and if the person who is doing the bidding and scouting the auction makes sure to know what they are doing. Say you need a new set of executive office chairs but do not want to spend upwards of $400 on the set at the local Office Depot. By using these furniture and equipment auctions to get used office furniture on the cheap you have managed to spend about half if not even less than that on what was originally budgeted for the equipment. When you are talking about a startup company smart decisions mean the difference between a successful beginning and getting off to a rocky start.
Stacking office chairs are some of the more sought after office furniture pieces by any company that wants to make sure they have enough seating not only to accommodate their staff but also any clients or prospective investors when visits are paid. These are also some of the cheapest furniture pieces around when looking to buy them at used office furniture and equipment auctions because they are so plentiful and well used in other offices as well.
You may not find that piece of office furniture that is going to give your business a boost in the looks department at these types of auctions, but the chances are that is not what you were going for anyway if you are attending. Save the big ticket purchases for the Office Depots and Office Maxes of the world. Let one high-end purchase of a granite desk top be the thing that you spend your decorating budget on. There is no need to go out and purchase stackable office chairs for even as low as $20 a pop when you go get them used but still in great condition for as little as $2 a piece or even lower should you get very lucky.
