Office Furniture Repair Services Serving Houston, Texas & Surrounding Areas.
If you’re just starting out, you have to economize in every way you can. This includes dealing with furniture that has been damaged. Rather than throwing out an expensive desk that has a highly visible crack or dent in it, save your company some significant money and simply have it repaired. Use the money that would have gone toward a new desk for marketing or branding.
Buy Damaged Furniture and Get it Repaired
Knowing that you can’t afford expensive, new furniture, go frugal. Visit furniture stores, both office and home. Talk to the manager and explain to them that you’re just starting out and you don’t have very much money to spend on new furniture.
Almost every store has a “scratch and dent” area. This is the furniture that, despite its damage, the store still wants to sell, albeit at a significant discount. Let the manager know you’re willing to buy this furniture and pay for the repairs yourself.
Once you have the furniture delivered to your office, take detailed notes of the damage to each piece. Call a furniture repair specialist and have them come in and make the needed repairs. While you’re going to spend money on each repair, it’s still not likely to reach the level of the prices you would have paid for new furniture.
The Repairs You May Need to Make
When furniture is offloaded from the delivery truck, accidents happen. Someone drops a filing cabinet or a desk. A hutch may accidentally be slammed into a wall as it’s being moved to the warehouse. Here’s a short sample of some of the damages that a repair person can fix:
º Broken action for raising or lowering the chair
º Chipped wood
º Heat damage
º Torn upholstery or leather
º Watermarks, especially if the furniture was wet in a storm
º Chairs that don’t swivel or lean back
Repair specialists have the ability and tools to fix every one of these damages. Once they are done, the furniture looks and functions just like a new piece – when you think about it, it is a new piece of furniture.
Have Furniture Donated, then Repair It
Businesses, hospitals, banks and hospices usually get rid of their old furniture. Rather than allowing it to take up space in a landfill, visit each one of these places and ask them if they would donate the furniture to your business. If they know you’re just starting out, they may be willing to help you out.
If you visit a state agency, they may be required to revert their old furniture back to the state. If you speak with a local director, they may be willing to donate their furniture to you, especially if it shows some damage. Be sure to let them know that you’re going to cover all the costs of repair so they know they aren’t going to have to pay for that. State agencies must operate within strict budgets and unexpected expenses may not be allowed. Browse office chairs when you’re ready to buy.
