Make sure you select the best people for the job.

Make an accurate and detailed inventory of your office furniture assets.
You can tell that a company is reputable when they do a final walkthrough with you to inventory and explain the process of liquidation to you. It also allows your liquidator to succinctly price the value of your furniture.
Know how long it takes.
Your main goals in liquidating office furniture are simple: You want to get as much money back on your liquidation, and you want to spend as little effort as possible to do it successfully. In order to do this, you need to be aware of how much time is needed for the process: inventory, disassembly, and removal of the components. Making sure that the liquidator has enough time to do these things can make sure you get the most cash in return.
Wholesale is worth more.
To get the most from your liquidation project, it’s smarter to sell your whole stock of standing inventory at once, as the cost of liquidation increases the smaller the sale. It also limits the liquidator’s ability to resell and preserve the life of the furniture, as more pieces are likely to be disposed, which costs them more.
Wholesale vs. Brokers
Most office managers don’t often deal in the sale of their unwanted furniture, so they don’t realize that brokers generally don’t commit to liquidation until they line up a buy. It can inhibit your liquidation schedule, because it can take weeks, months, or even years, depending on the item. Wholesales commit to a deal and follow through, which works exceptionally for disrupting your office as little as possible.
