A lot of the B2B side of the economy is not exactly sexy; selling each other cleaning supplies or some raw materials can be a somewhat dry topic of conversation. That being said, it is an entirely necessary aspect of life, and many small businesses depend on the goods and services provided by other small businesses in the area, and today’s topic is especially important for those companies and ventures that are just starting out.
That topic is: office furnishings! Whether you’re a new tech company making the next great app or a burgeoning architecture firm designing some of the new developments popping up all over southern California, you have to have a place for your employees to work, and that means furnishing your office.
The best way to get those workstations up and functional as quickly as possible? Going used.
Used office furniture not only comes at a fraction of the price of new pieces, it also comes to you pre-assembled and has a lead time of days rather than weeks or months, meaning your new office can be decked out and ready to start making money for you at the end of the week. The company we’re spotlighting for this post, Creative Office Designs, even provides services like CAD-assisted office design to squeeze as much value as possible out of your space and an on-site project manager that ensures assembly and work is done at as high a level of efficiency as possible.
Buying used doesn’t just help you stretch that valuable seed cash that you need to get your company off the ground, it also gives you access to some of the best brands around that have been used for years as floor models, meaning very little wear and tear and years of use left in each piece. In addition to that, if you’re using used office furniture in a city like Los Angeles, you’re helping to reduce the massive carbon footprint left by the city each year as it grows and consumes more and more resources. Buying new would mean more raw materials being used, more gas-guzzling machines running to make them, and a huge logistical train used to transport the materials from wherever they’re made to here.
Creative Office Designs offers a variety of styles and materials for their office equipment, all of which may be viewed either through their online catalogue or in one of their show rooms located in either Orange County or Los Angeles County. The company is able to tackle jobs of a variety of sizes, and can adapt easily as changes or problems arise during the project’s timeline. Andrew Morris of Google has this to say about the company’s adaptability:
“Working with Brian Mills and Creative Office Design was a breeze. Our project kept on changing and ultimately was much smaller than originally planned. That said, Brian gave me the same enthusiastic support throughout the process, provided ideas and helped keep the project within our budget. On top of that, the guy is a fellow mountain biker, so our conversations were always pleasurable. I would definitely give Brian a call when your next project comes around.”
If you’re in the Los Angeles or northern Orange County area and are in the market for used office furniture, please look up the spotlighted company:
