Ways to Save Money on Office Furniture

Everyone has been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on the economy in some way, including businesses. Budgets are currently tight, and companies and employees alike are doing their best to save money. It may be tempting to put off buying new office furniture when cash is a concern, but waiting too long to get the solutions your office needs may cost more money in the long run.

Fortunately, buying quality office furniture doesn’t have to be expensive. Here are some of the ways Modern Office helps businesses save money on their furniture needs.

Quantity Discounts

Buying in bulk is a surefire way to save on cost per item everywhere from the grocery store to major industrial plants, and that goes for office furniture too. If you need to furnish a whole room or even your whole building, our quantity discounts for larger orders will help you out.

Let’s use swivel chairs as an example. The pricing for this ergonomic chair will adjust depending on how many chairs you need: If you order 1-5 chairs, they cost $269 each. For orders of 6-9 chairs, the price goes down to $259 each. If you order 10 chairs or more, the price per unit will drop even further to $249—that would be a savings of $200 for an order of 10 chairs. Similar bulk discounts are available for the majority of our products, resulting in huge savings for customers who need to outfit their entire office at once.
Free Shipping

Nothing is worse than adding a reasonably priced item to your cart only for your total to skyrocket after adding shipping and handling fees. We make furniture shopping easier and lighter on the wallet by offering free shipping to any location within the lower 48 states. Free shipping is especially helpful in our current climate, when ordering products online is healthier and more socially responsible than shopping in person.

Two-person Desks

In most offices, every employee needs their own workstation, and if your company is even moderately sized, the expenses can pile up quickly. If you can accommodate multiple employees with a single piece of furniture, however, you may cut your costs in half. Two-person desks are an excellent solution.

All of our two-person desks have ample space for both individuals to work, and some of them include enclosed storage space and/or open shelves as well. In addition to saving money, you’ll save floor space, which any growing company knows is a precious resource. Having employees share a two-person desk is also a great way to inspire collaboration, encouraging ideas that could lead to more profit down the road.

Modern Office Chair Evaluation Program

When buying chairs for your office, it makes sense that you’d want to try them out before committing to a big order. Our Chair Evaluation Program is a unique way to do just that. We allow customers to receive a single chair, without putting down their credit card information, before deciding whether or not to order more of them. If you decide that chair isn’t a great fit for your office, you’ll only have to pay for shipping to send it back, then we’ll be happy to send you another. Instead of wasting limited resources on a less-than-satisfactory product, we’ll make sure you’re completely confident in your chair purchases.

The long-lasting relationships we’ve built with our customers are based in part on our efforts to help them save as much as possible. We’d love to do the same for you.
