You haven’t decided yet whether you’re going to order new, used or refurbished office cubicles for your employees. Your budget doesn’t restrict you to buying used or refurbished cubicles – in fact, if you wanted to, you could buy new. You want to ensure that you have enough money after ordering the cubicles you need, so you’re also looking at options with new and refurbished systems.
Understand What You’re Buying
As you are shopping around for cubicles, inspect what you look at. Familiarize yourself with all the parts of the cubicles, such as the trim pieces, cubicle walls, tile frames and parts such as the desktop and even the filing cabinet. If you choose walls with tile toppers, you’ll be able to choose between fabric tiles or glass topper tiles.
Know Which Cubicle Styles You Need
Your employees have differing work duties which dictate what cubicle style they will be working in. Clerks, data entry personnel and secretaries need larger cubicles than call center staff members need. Graphic designers, IT, web designers and Human Resources personnel need cubicles that offer them quiet and privacy.
Order the Features You Need
Once you know what cubicle styles you need, and how many of each to order, don’t forget about these features: storage space, additional lighting and electrical connections. Having these features allows your employees to get their work done efficiently.
Insist on a Warranty
If you choose to buy used cubicles, ask about the existence of a warranty. This protects you should the cubicles fail to perform as promised. You’ll also be able to get needed repairs to bring your cubicles back to full working condition.
Choose Cubicles That Don’t Go Out of Style
Avoid ordering used cubicles that follow a short-lived trend. Once the trend goes out of style, you’ll be stuck with cubicles that, when customers or visitors enter your business, will give them the impression that your company is just as dated as your cubicles are. Instead, look for and choose used cubicles with a timeless style. While they won’t win design awards, they won’t give the impression that your company is out of step with the times.
Cost Doesn’t Trump Quality
You’re weighing your options between some really inexpensive cubicles and another set that costs more. Even though money may not be an option, you’re leaning more strongly toward the less expensive set.
Before you place your order, make sure that inexpensive set is of high quality. You’ll end up spending more money for repairs if they come with flaws that make them difficult to use. In this case, the higher-priced cubicles may be a better choice.
Understanding Refurbished Cubicles
Do you know what “refurbished” means? The cubicles underwent close inspections that helped to identify flaws and broken areas. Once they have been identified, these broken areas and flaws are repaired. If you choose refurbished, you’ll be able to save up to 50 percent of the price of new cubicles.
