If you’ve decided to close or downsize your office location, you’re definitely not alone. According to a survey taken in August 2021, 69% of U.S. businesses had permanently closed some or all of their offices since March 2020, and an additional 41% of businesses chose to downsize their office space.

The primary reason? A transition to remote or hybrid work. The same survey found that the top reason why businesses have permanently closed their office space over the past two years was because a majority of their employees wanted to work from home. Other businesses closed their office locations to save money or to protect employees’ health (due to the COVID-19 pandemic).

Regardless of why you’re closing or downsizing your office space, doing so likely leaves you with a lot of office equipment you’re not sure what to do with. We can help with that.
