Michaels Global Trading has nearly a decade of experience working with businesses across North America. With humble beginnings as a storage and resale business in Ontario, Canada, MGT has expanded our efforts to become leaders in the removal, decommissioning, and liquidation of inventory and equipment.
Being a local Canadian company, we pride ourselves on serving our community with transparency, quality work, and dedication to our customers. It is important to us that the businesses we help feel a burden lifted, whether in the removal of unwanted clutter, assistance with financial concerns relating to bankruptcy and liquidation, or advisory on office decommissioning and asset management.
Serving Our Clients
Michaels Global Trading works with businesses from a wide range of industries, both big and small. We have experience managing equipment including:
- Electronics and IT Equipment – Computers, laptops, server and networking systems, VOIP, printers, fax machines, copiers, security systems, televisions, digital storage, and mobile devices.
- Industrial Equipment – Construction vehicles, moving dollies, rolling racks, platforms, lighting, heavy machinery, and more.
- Office Furniture – Chairs, couches, desks, partitions, cubicles, ergonomic stations, filing cabinets, storage, and supplies.
- Retail Merchandise – Overstock, discontinued merchandise, racks, displays, light fixtures, sales systems, and other retail business equipment.
Michaels Global Trading understands that no two businesses are the same, and we customize our services to fit your needs, rather than offering clients a one-size-fits-all solution to liquidation. Your business is an important part of your life, even if you are now retiring, closing shop, or looking for a new line of work. MGT handles business closures with care, tact, and discretion. Our job isn’t to judge, but to help you sort through residual assets and find a silver lining and potential return on your initial investments.
Serving Our Community
As a professional office decommissioning service, MGT not only aids in organization and liquidation of assets. Our company continues to work toward eco friendly practices, by employing recycling, reuse, and resale strategies whenever possible.
Rather than disposing of residual equipment in a business office or warehouse, we meticulously sort, and even disassemble products to ensure everything that can be salvaged finds a new home and doesn’t wind up in the landfill. It’s important to us that our work leads to a better future for businesses of tomorrow.
We also employ a strong focus on donation, partnering with local charities, shelters, community programs, and not-for-profit organizations in need. Being in this business as long as we have, MGT has built networks within the communities we serve. There is a growing need for support, including usable furniture and technology in our cities, and it’s a pleasure to deliver these items when possible.
A Focus on Communication
In our job, communication is key. Communication with you about your goals for company assets and communication with third party buyers, marketing agents, and more. When we facilitate an office decommission, we try to ensure you do as little as possible, so you can focus on big picture decisions and leave the stressful stuff to us.
As we evaluate, assess, and organize residual equipment and furniture, we are transparent with you about appraisals and future value. We feel it is beneficial to consult with you about your goals for company assets, but also to guide you in your decision based on what we see in your office space. If it appears that there are more unusable products than sellable ones, we will help you form a new plan of action in your liquidation strategy.
When you contact MGT during business hours, you can expect a reply within 2-4 hours. Prompt responses and quick action are two advantages we bring to our clients, ensuring you are never left in the dark about your company or assets.
Setting Ourselves Apart
There are plenty of moving companies willing to take on a company closure or relocation, but MGT sets ourselves apart by offering a diverse business model with customizable services to meet your needs as a business owner.
Businesses in North America require decommissioning services for many reasons, including:
- Office Closures
- Outdated Equipment
- New Furniture
Whatever your reason for calling MGT, you can rest assured that we’ll work with you from beginning to end, streamlining your office closure or move, and facilitating retrieval, donation, and resale as needed.
Closing an office is a huge job. There are many moving parts to consider outside of where your excess inventory or office furniture is going. As a business ourselves, we understand that you have more to worry about than just your assets and creditors. Our role is taking on the heavy lifting and removing some of that weight from your shoulders.
Michaels Global Trading is not a moving company. We will move your belongings out of your office, sure, but we’ll also:
- Go through each piece
- Help with disassembly
- Organize delivery to an appropriate facility for processing
With strict bylaws and guidelines governing the decommissioning of office and industrial products in North America, it is important that everything you recycle is thoroughly inspected and sent to the correct location.
MGT is constantly updating our database on equipment, machinery, furniture, and electronics so we can better serve our customers. This ensures you avoid red tape and legal issues relating to mismanaged e-waste and other potentially troublesome items.
Professional Appraisal Services
As MGT continues to expand, we are also expanding our services to better serve our customers. Becoming certified in asset appraisals is one of the ways we have strengthened our role in liquidation and decommission services.
Appraising a company takes a keen eye for value and knowledge of current market prices on a large list of items. We pride ourselves on our ability to analyze and evaluate even the most unique pieces of equipment, offering fair and relevant appraisals for old and new equipment.

BEST IN THE INDUSTRY! That’s how we would describe Michaels Global Trading. They took all the headaches for our office move, decommissioning office cubicle, and did everything at a great price. They planned everything ahead of time and were on time to finish the job. Marlon, Mario, and team were extremely professional. They were fast to respond, fair in prices, and extremely service oriented. We would recommend them to companies who are planning an office move or decommissioning office furniture or equipment. – Brainhunter Systems Ltd.
We engaged Michaels Global Trading to remove and dispose a large quantity of office furniture during renovations. Marlon and his team were professional, efficient and made our jobs much easier. It was nice not having to deal with all those desks ourselves!
Liquidation items can be anything that can be sold from a business to generate cash flow. Examples would be furniture, computers, machinery, vehicles, fixtures etc.
The simplest answer is no. There are many factors that affect the value of your assets. Some examples would be market conditions, supply and demand, age, condition and location.
Every appraisal is different and has specific requirements. The cost is directly linked to the scope of work involved.
That depends on several factors; first, how much equipment is being appraised. Appraising a large machinery shop with hundred’s of pieces will take significantly longer than appraising a small mom and pop business.
Majority of appraisal reports will have equipment values and a synopsis of how the appraiser came up with the values given.
Some commons reasons for an appraisal are mergers & acquisitions, business valuation, bankruptcy, financing & SBA lending, insurance, buy and sell agreements or partnership dissolutions.
