Liquidate Your Assets With
Michaels Global Trading Today.

We offer complete liquidation services for office furniture, IT equipment, construction equipment, and more! This service is not complimentary and there will be a service fee involved.


Liquidation allows you to earn back some of the investment on your assets as you discard them. In cases of liquidation, there are a few options for appraisal, including:

  • 1 Fair Market Value

    This is an estimate on value based on other items of the same type being sold, the current value of new items of this style, the quality, and age of the item. Fair market value requires research to determine a standard on the pieces of furniture you are trying to earn money back on.

  • 2 Orderly Liquidation Value

    If there is time during the liquidation process to find top dollar, orderly liquidation value is used. This evaluation reflects top bid in an auction-style setting and may see sellers holding out to get a closer price to the real value or above.

  • 3 Forced Liquidation Value

    Forced liquidation differs from the above appraisals in that the amount received from an auction is based on time constraints, rather than an effort to get fair market value on an item. FLV evaluations occur when a company is rushed for time and must sell quickly. Still, even with FLV, you have the advantage of earning back some of your investment.

At Michaels Global Trading, we always strive to get our clients top dollar on any liquidated asset.


Another method of disposing of unwanted office furniture includes donation. Donating to a local charity or organization is beneficial for many reasons, such as:

  • Removal of clutter from your office
  • Community service
  • Brand recognition
  • Positive reputation
  • Eco-friendly recycling

Many companies who choose to donate their office furniture simply don’t know where to send it. Michaels Global Trading works with businesses regularly, finding organizations and charities in need, so your office furniture makes a difference in the lives of others. Your office furniture could find its way into a community centre, classroom, small start-up business, or homeless shelter.


Recycling office furniture and equipment is a tricky process. There are many types of equipment, specifically electronics, which require careful handling, dismantling, sorting, and delivery to the correct facilities. Michaels Global Trading is well versed in the wiring and disassembly of a variety of electrical components, during office furniture disposal. We will ensure your office furniture is carefully managed and that each piece arrives at the correctly designated sorting facility.

In North America, there are strict laws on the disposal of e-waste and IT equipment. Many of these items include a variety of metals, some of which expose toxic chemicals when improperly handled. Tossing glass, wiring, and other electronic components into the landfill negatively impact the environment and could lead to fines for companies who don’t follow the recycling laws.

Decommission and Removal

Like recycling, decommissioning of unusable products requires a keen eye to ensure you aren’t tossing out something worth keeping or selling. Michaels’ office decommissioning services can help you distinguish treasure from trash and ensure the items no longer usable are recycled correctly.
Our experienced team is familiar with local disposal centers and will get products that can be discarded to the right centers while delivering recyclable components to recycling and sorting facilities.

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!

Would highly recommend. Thanks MGT!
