Closing down a business is always really hard, especially if you started it. But I had to do it because of the finances. The business was really bad and I closed it a few months back. Last few months I’ve been trying to open it again. But I’ve finally understood that it is not possible at all. Any way now I need to sell the equipment in the office as soon as possible to make up for the loses.
I’ve found a few companies like this one ( https://www.michaelsglobaltrading.com/office-furniture/ )who claims to be doing office equipment liquidation. Are they really good? Or should I look for another option to sell these? (eBay definitely didn’t work.)April 30, 2018 at 2:02 pm #189665

Thank you for the question. We’re sorry to hear about your business closing. It sounds like you gave it a great effort.
Selling your office equipment is a great idea to help you cover some of your losses. I don’t have specific experience with Michael’s Global Trading or other liquidation services, but I would expect that they need to see quite a bit of inventory and also charge a fee to help liquidate.
If you haven’t already, I would strongly recommend trying to list some of your office equipment and furniture on Craigslist and Facebook Marketplace. I’ve seen both of these services work very well for sales of this size, plus both options are extremely cost-effective and easy-to-use.
I hope this helps. Best of luck on your next venture.
