Office furniture removal
If you’re looking for efficient and hassle-free office furniture and equipment removal and liquidation in Toronto, then Michaels Global Trading specialists may assist you with this undertaking.
We are certain of our skills and market reach in liquidating all kinds of business assets. Besides our proficient staff and extensive resources, we also provide our clients with quick and transparent processes, from appraisal to liquidation, so you have peace of mind leaving the removal project to us, while you focus on other important matters for relocating, downsizing, or shutting down your operations.
We realize that this is a busy and stressful time for you. Our experts are ready to step in and help you liquidate your old cubicles, office equipment, and furniture, so you have new space to keep the new items. Even if you’re relocating your premises and don’t want to move with your old furniture, or you’re planning a warehouse equipment removal or full facility shutdown, we can help to streamline the process for a stress-free transition.
We have a straightforward process that starts with our specialists coming to your premises for an on-site assessment to carefully evaluate the office furniture or equipment you plan on liquidating. Our knowledgeable staff determine the pieces that can be resold and appraise them, while identifying those that need to be recycled or destroyed according to government regulations. As a full-service liquidation company, we not only remove your office furniture and carpet, but also arrange for the repair of the walls, ceilings, carpets, and anything else that may get damaged during the removal process, so your offices are in great shape for leasing or resale.
Facility Decommissioning and Removal
If you’re looking for decommissioning services in Toronto, Michaels Global Trading can assist with the scheduled shutdown and ceasing of your operations for industrial, chemical, or petrochemical facilities. Our professional and experienced team produces a plan and scope of work, as well as risk assessments and environmental management plans of your facility for approval by the authorities before any work begins. We also arrange the decontamination and industrial cleaning of your plant, equipment, machinery, and pipework within your facility, after which we can proceed with the strip-out and removal phase of the decommissioning project.
We leverage our extensive network across the region and world to quickly get rid of your equipment, so it doesn’t become a burden to you. The strip-out and removal process is done very carefully to prevent any damage to your machinery and equipment. These items may be stored temporarily in our warehouse while waiting for a buyer, or transferred directly to another plant or facility for re-use as directed by the client.
As with all our projects, we provide continuous project monitoring and evaluation at every stage of the project, to ensure optimal safety, practicality, and efficiency for your strategic decommissioning. We constantly monitor your project’s key performance indicators while taking into account any feedback that you may have to ensure that you’re satisfied with the timelines.
The duration of the decommissioning phase of your project varies depending on the type and scale of the facility, level of decontamination and cleaning of the machinery, equipment, and plant required. Other factors include if there’s an area of the facility that needs to remain operational during the decommissioning process, whether the operations are carried out in phases, and if you intend to retain the items (machinery and equipment) for use in another facility or for sale.
Once the decommissioning work is completed, we conduct a survey and handover the facility for the next phase of its development. We realize that there may be multiple operations going on simultaneously. Whether demolition works are taking place in one area of the facility or some of your plant operations are still ongoing in another section, we always maintain high levels of operational safety procedures to eliminate injuries, accidents and unnecessary damage to your equipment.

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.
