We were recently given the opportunity to conduct an appraisal for a potential client who was vacating their office space. They needed a valuation of everything including: workstations, shelving, desks, and lateral files.
Our first step was a walk-through of the entire space to create the inventory list and determine the value and condition of every piece. To ensure we captured everything and to facilitate provision of a quote, we documented the inventory using an iPad to take notes and photos. We also utilized a very handy Asset Itemizer app to help catalog the contents.
The office liquidation proposal was submitted to the client and we were awarded the project. Our crew jumped into action and began disassembling and removing the furniture from the building. The broker was able to sell various parts of the inventory to dealers and recyclers around the country. Anything we could not sell was either scrapped for metal or taken to a recycler of non-metal. We had 3 large trash cans of actual trash when we were finished. The entire process from the bid to successfully brokering the inventory was completed in seven days.
At Carolina Office Xchange we are committed to the three “R’s” of sustainability: reuse of equipment and recycling of materials resulting in reduction of waste.
