Benefits of Office Furniture Donations

Donating is a great way to show consumers and partners that your company cares about others and the environment. Office furniture can be used by more than other businesses, it can help in schools, libraries, community programs, homeless shelters, and more. Donating office furniture has a variety of advantages aside from feeling good about doing something for others. These perks include:

Eco-Friendly Disposal

There are many regulations across North American regarding the recycling and disposal of office supplies, particularly those with electronic components. As you get rid of unwanted furniture, it’s important to consider your carbon footprint on the planet. Donating to organizations in need guarantees you are not adding to landfills, and that you avoid all the complicated regulations in breaking down and disposing of individual furniture components.

Brand loyalty and community presence are huge advantages to any business. When you donate, no matter how much, your community takes notice. Companies that provide for the less fortunate make waves in local news and create positive associations for their brands.

Disposing of office furniture requires knowledge of local laws. Some items may not be tossed away as is. Certain types of technology, lighting, and even metals must be disposed of through regulated methods. When you work with a professional office equipment decommissioning service to donate unwanted supplies, you avoid legal liability attached to improper disposal.

Donating office furniture doesn’t need to come down to a need for supplies, it could be that the organization you donate to can use unwanted equipment for fundraising purposes. Whether an auction or contest, helping local groups fundraise is a worthwhile cause.

Donations lead to acknowledgement, even if only through social media and positive reviews. When local charities and organizations are favoured by other businesses, it reflects well for you as a business owner. This gets your name out there and encourages other locals to use your products and services in the future. Supportive local has become a huge movement in Canada and across North America, you can be part of this movement by donating.

Giving unnecessary equipment as a donation not only makes you feel good about helping others but gets rid of unneeded items taking up space in your office. As you reduce clutter you make a more productive and positive work experience for your employees.

More companies across North America are choosing to work with a minimalist theme, embracing bright open spaces. Decluttering also lessens hidden dust, debris, and germs, reducing the risk of illness and helping to keep your office clean.

Charities work as not-for-profit organizations, meaning they don’t earn an income doing what they do for the community and those less fortunate. This creates small budgets for the work they do. Your donation of office furniture could make a huge difference in the lives of those they support with little to no cost to the charity themselves. In this way, you help local charities continue the work they do, allowing your community to thrive and grow.

Trying to manage donations on your own can be daunting. Working with a professional donation service, like Michaels Global Trading removes the bother of sourcing worthy recipients and dealing with the red tape involved. From schools to charities, professional donation services have the connections to ensure your office supplies find a new home where they are truly needed.

Whatever reason you choose to donate, you can count on Michaels Global Trading to help with the heavy lifting and organization. Working with businesses of many shapes and sizes across Canada, we have come to know the ins and outs of office disassembly. We’ll take your space from a fully functional office to bare walls. No scrap or wire left behind.

Michaels Global Trading has nearly a decade of experience serving North Americans in donations, recycling, and removal services. When we partner with a business, we customize our services to meet your individual needs, creating a bespoke plan of organization and disposal.

Marlon and his team were on time and ready to work. Marlon and his team provided decommissioning and relocation service. Decommissioning included destruction of old Hard Drives, Server removal, De-cabling, Inventory and general cleanup. Team is professional, cooperative, and friendly. They went out of their way to accommodate our needs several times. They worked independently and left our premises at spotless condition. During relocation, they made sure we did not have to worry about our possessions on both sides - loading and unloading. Thank you for the excellent customer service and quality!

Marlon and his team just left our office, with a lot of cubicles and desks that needed to be cleared out. They were on time, very reasonably priced, polite, quiet (we were working downstairs while they were upstairs) and efficient. He had a large team working and finished the job in about 4 hours. Would highly recommend. Thanks MGT!
