Appraisal for Office Furniture and Equipment

Michaels Global Trading is more than a middle man for office supplies removal and resale, we also offer professional appraisal services. Working as appraisers for nearly a decade, we have a long-running history with local sellers and buyers in the community and
base our evaluations on thorough research with multiple sources. Depending on your schedule for sale, we may base your evaluation on:

  • 1 Fair Market Value

    Fair market value is based on the prices of items of the same type, age, and quality.We look around to see who is selling what for how much, research online journals and catalogues, check new sale prices, and use our own sales records to determine a fair price on the items in your office.

  • 2 Orderly Liquidation Value

    If time is of the essence, an orderly liquidation value can be determined based on an auction-style sale. When you have the time to wait for a top bid, this evaluation can be quite fruitful.

  • 3 Forced Liquidation Value

    Force liquidation values are generally lower than other evaluations, but they save you time and get equipment out fast. Forced liquidation is more of a first come first serve style appraisal system, working on the principle that things need to be sold quickly, rather than for top dollar.

Office Liquidator

Following appraisal, Michaels as an Office Liquidator can help you liquidate office equipment and furniture. This guarantees some return on your initial investment, to help pay for your move to a new office, upgraded equipment, or to use as payment in financial transactions relating to bankruptcy.Office furniture liquidation occurs for many reasons, including:

  • Downsizing
  • Mergers
  • Upgrades
  • Office Moves
  • Bankruptcy

North America has strict laws on disposal and recycling. There are some components of electronic items which cannot simply be tossed in the trash. Sometimes these components are inside office equipment
and the item must be disassembled to locate and recycle the appropriate parts. Michaels Global Trading has a keen knowledge of office equipment big and small. We can tell when something is eligible for refurbishment,and when recycling is the only option. We’ll help you get all the metals, plastics, and glass items in your office to their designated recycling facilities.

Office equipment has a shelf life like everything else, but some pieces last longer than others. You might find that while your computer system requires upgrades for business protocols, they could work just fine for research and document preparation. Similarly, your chairs, tables, and appliances might offer use to someone else, even though they have outlived their purpose for your office. Donation is a great way to give back to your community, providing for charities, homeless shelters, schools, libraries, and other community programs that could use office furniture and equipment to serve others. Donation is also an eco-friendly method, as it keeps equipment out of landfills.

Finally, when there is no alternative, disposal of office furniture and equipment is necessary. Like recycling, there are bylaws in most cities across North America regarding the disposal of electronics,specifically those which may leak toxins into the earth. Batteries, glass, wiring, and cathode-ray tubes all require special handling and sorting to their appropriate facilities.
Michaels Global Trading is familiar with local disposal laws and can help you avoid legal issues relating to e-waste

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!
