How to Sell Used Office Furniture in New York

by Jamie Lisse; Updated September 26, 2017
Instead of throwing away used office furniture, you can sell it.

If you are replacing some or all of the used furniture in your New York office, you may have a lot of items that you no longer need. Whether your office is in New York City or another part of New York state, you can try to sell your office furniture to a used furniture buyer. Typically, furniture buyers like to buy in bulk, which means you may not be able to sell to them if you are only getting rid of a few things around the office.

Step 1

Inspect the office furniture you want to sell for areas that are broken or need repair. Also, be sure to clean up the office furniture. They need to be in good condition.

Step 2

Make a list of all of the used office furniture you want to sell. Include brand, color, size, model, quantity and condition. Take photos of the furniture because some furniture buyers will request them.

Step 3

Contact some New York used office furniture buyers to get a quote for your items. Use the list you made when requesting the quotes. In New York City, Office Furniture NYC buys used office furniture from a minimum of 50 offices or cubicles. Contact it via its website (see Resources). Other New York area used office furniture buyers include SWC Office and Furniture Finders. SWC Office can be reached at or 888-404-3375. Furniture Finders does quotes via its website (see Resources).

Step 4

Use the New York Craigslist if you only have a few pieces of used office furniture that you want to sell. Alternatively, if you work in a large building with other companies, you can go from floor to floor asking if they want to buy your used office furniture.
