Office furniture removal
At Michaels Global Trading, we pride ourselves on our prompt, eco-friendly office clearance services in Burlington. From IT equipment removal to the sale of unwanted assets, we cover every aspect of your office removal process. Most businesses consult us for our outstanding office furniture removal services. We realize that many businesses may not wish to move with their old furniture when relocating to a new office. As a result, they can choose to liquidate these items and use the funds to boost their finances after purchasing new office furniture, send them to a landfill, or keep them in storage where they serve no meaningful purpose and simply waste space.
By engaging our office furniture removal services, you can drastically reduce your company’s carbon footprint by minimizing the number of old items that end up in the landfill. Office clearance is a rather lengthy process that involves various activities, including:
- Making office furniture inventory – This involves creating a detailed list of each item in your office that you want to get rid of. The details should include the age, brand, and condition of each furniture item, from the chairs and desks to the kitchen appliances and filing cabinets, complete with clear images. This itemized list is necessary for identifying items available for resale, assessing their potential value, and isolating the items that you want to keep.
- Appraisal for liquidation – The itemized list should help to provide a clue about the current value of your old furniture and other office equipment. As part of our standard office clearance tasks, Michaels Global Trading regularly buys old, unwanted office equipment and furniture, and then works out the amount from the overall cost of the removal project. Determining the cost of the office items you want to dispose of can also allow you to set the budget for purchasing replacement items for your new office location.
- Moving the unwanted items from your site – It is our job to sell off or dispose of your old office equipment and furniture on your behalf. Where it’s not possible to resell the items, we can organize for them to be recycled or used, which is in line with our goals for eco-friendliness and sustainability. The old furniture and equipment that cannot be recycled can be remanufactured, allowing any reusable components to be transformed into meaningful and useful new items.
Our professionals can assist with the appraisal and removal of your old office furniture and equipment, so you focus on other important matters, like setting up your new office location. That said, you may want to work out the initial pricing estimate for your office items before disposing of them by going through the invoices for the original purchases of each item, and then take into consideration their age, brand, and condition. This information is needed to assess the market value of your office equipment and furniture in their current condition.
Warehouse Equipment Removal
Every year, retailers, warehouses, and manufacturers face the challenge of getting rid of huge volumes of unsold or unused raw materials and inventory. These excess products can accumulate over time, making it difficult or unprofitable to liquidate them. But with the help of professional asset removal and liquidation specialists like Michaels Global Trading, proper handling of these products can give your company meaningful profits.
In most cases, the assets that need to be liquidated are handled by multiple departments, which might complicate the process if employees choose to handle it themselves. Moreover, leaving such a task to inexperienced people can result in lost profits or even illegal disposal of some items. Working with professionals can ensure smooth, timely, and profitable equipment removal and liquidation from your distribution center or warehouse.
Keep in mind that certain regulations need to be followed when handling industrial materials and equipment. When these items are not properly disposed of, leftover computers and electronic equipment may degrade and produce toxic substances. It is important to assess all the items and separate those that cannot be sold from those to be taken to market, ensuring that the waste is disposed of responsibly. Our specialists appraise any items that can be sold and market them properly through our networks for optimal profits, and dispose of any leftover items that can’t be resold in adherence with all ethical and environmental codes.

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.
