When looking for office furniture, one of the first questions you’re going to have to answer is a seemingly simple one: new or used? However, that question is often more complicated than people originally think! New and used office furniture vary massively in several key ways, so before you make your office furniture decision, let the office furniture experts at PVI answer your questions!
Used Office Furniture vs. New Office Furniture
Aside from the obvious—new office furniture has never been used before—new and used office furniture are very different, and they both have their own specific upside. Let’s go through some of the differences.
New office furniture means uniformity. The best thing about new office furniture is that you have guaranteed uniformity with your office furniture. Since it’s never been in an actual office space, you won’t have to worry about dings and wear that naturally are bound to happen in an office environment. Plus, with used office furniture, you’re not guaranteed to get as much as you need to truly outfit your office space. If there’s not enough of the particular piece in our office, you may have to compromise on style.
Price. This is perhaps the biggest difference between the two—the cost. Used office furniture simply costs less than comparable new items.
Styles. Often used office furniture is a little bit more classic in style, simply because it’s older. However, we get new pre-owned office furniture frequently, so you shouldn’t have to worry about having out-of-style office furniture.
