Taking either of these approaches offers a number of important advantages to a business, not least of which are reductions in waste and costs as well as increased efficiency and sustainability.
These factors, in turn, help reduce any unnecessary excess in the use of resources by a business, thus allowing for a reduction in resource depletion and the overall carbon footprint of the business.
Naturally, this bodes well for the environment.
However, office clearance is no small undertaking.
Because it involves streamlining the office-related objects a business uses, the task inevitably entails thorough compliance with complicated environmental regulations and gives rise to corporate social responsibility issues.
Meeting these challenges head-on can be challenging, at the very least.
So how does one go about office clearance? It can be done in five broad steps.
Each step requires answering a basic question.
The first step is a simple audit of all the relevant items that will be affected by the clearance.
It involves asking a simple question: which items does your office need to keep? Figuring this step out saves a lot of time in the overall process and also helps mitigate its cost.
The next step requires the establishment of a time line: how soon do you want your office clearance to be finished?
While you should focus on devising an efficient time frame, it is also important to leave a bit of room for mishaps.
Simply put, your time line should be short enough to keep things efficient but long enough to allow for contingency plans.
Following the establishment of a time frame, a specialized clearance company must be chosen.
Selecting the right organization involves looking at the company's resources, experience and reputation and, of course, prices.
Office clearance itself cannot be done without the help of a specialist.
The fourth step is to sell your used office furniture and equipment through the clearance firm of your choice and get rebates.
The last and final step involves careful disposing of the waste according to environmental regulations.
