How Much Do Cubicles Cost?
An office cubicle can cost anything from $800 to $4000 plus tax, delivery, and installation. Most office cubicles fall into the $800 to $2000 range if you buy new. If you buy used then the standard range would be $200 to $1000. Here are some of the factors which determine how much you will pay.
The size of the cubicle
A regular, single office cubicle is 6x6x53. There are, however, numerous alternative sizes for different purposes. For example, customer-service departments often like 4*4 cubicles. These are big enough for computers and phones (if companies still use separate phones). They don’t offer much space for writing or meetings but this typically isn’t important.
On a like-for-like basis, smaller cubicles are more affordable than larger ones. This is, however, only more economical if the cubicles are still big enough for their intended use.
The finishes used
High-end cubicles have premium finishes and are priced accordingly. Regular cubicles may have varying levels of soundproofing and this will influence their price. Even if you’re on a tight budget, it can be worth investing in well-soundproofed cubicles at least for some employees. The alternatives are living with excessive noise or paying to add soundproofing later.
The included features
A basic freestanding office cubicle is essentially just a room-divider. As such, it’s very affordable. Panel-based office cubicles will typically include desks and may have shelves, cabinets, and/or drawers as well. Some office cubicles will have integrated power, phone, and internet connections. These are more expensive than “bare-bones” cubicles but very convenient. Some of the cost is determined by availability of the size and configuration you are wanting, the brand if that’s important to you and what you are willing to spend. Bottom line, shopping around you can find a great price on a used cubicle but the caution would be to ensure you are buying from a reputable dealer who will back up the sale with great customer service and support.
