How Much are Cubicles Worth?
Technically, your office furniture depreciates at 14% per year. You could therefore sell office cubicles for the original purchase price minus 14% per year. In the real world, however, if you’re going to sell office cubicles used, you might want to think more carefully about your pricing. Here are some tips to help.
How well have you kept your office cubicles?
At a minimum, your office cubicles should be clean, robust, and fully functional. The closer they are to new, the higher the price they are likely to fetch. If your office cubicles are looking the worse for wear then having them cleaned and repaired will make them more desirable.
How old are your office cubicles?
How much this matters depends largely on what type of cubicle you are selling. For example, basic, freestanding office cubicles have been much the same for years. They do improve over time but the improvements are fairly small. By contrast, a panel cubicle that was state-of-the-art when you bought it is not likely to be state-of-the-art when you sell it.
How much do you value convenience?
If maximum convenience is more important to you than maximum profit then it might be worth just selling your office cubicles to a used office furniture outlet. This is highly unlikely to fetch you the best price but very likely to get you the quickest and easiest sale.
What’s the demand in your area?
There is an element of luck in selling anything. If you sell the right office cubicles at the right time then you can expect a good price. If, on the other hand, you sell into a slow market then you may have to cut your price or be prepared to wait for a buyer.
