As the work-from-home and hybrid-work trends continue, many businesses are finding that they don’t need as much office space—or office equipment—as before.
If you have a business in the San Antonio area that is downsizing, relocating, or renovating, you may be at a loss to know what to do with old cubicles and desks. As a local professional junk removal service, Space Makers Junk Removal can help.
We offer cubicle disassembly and removal as part of our office furniture removal services. But why should you use a professional junk removal service like Space Makers for this task?
CUBICLE REMOVAL TAKES THE RIGHT TOOLS
Cubicles consist of a lot of little pieces beyond the desks, shelving, drawers, and panels that have to be taken apart. To take those apart, you need to have the right tools to deal with the screws, latches, levers, springs, rods, and rails that connect the pieces to floors. You may also need a ladder. Professional junk removal companies like Space Makers Junk Removal have the tools and the experience to quickly and efficiently dismantle cubicle systems.
TAKING APART A CUBICLE REQUIRES TEAMWORK
It’s hard to disassemble and move a cubicle by yourself. As you loosen screws and connectors, panels can fall on you. At least two people are required to safely lift and move the heavy, bulky partitions and desks out of a space. Space Makers teams consist of at least two members, and we know the steps to safely removing a cubicle system.
YOU CAN GET INJURED MOVING A CUBICLE
To take apart and move a cubicle, you’ll need to get on the floor—on your knees or back—to take apart desks, drawers, shelves, and panels. To move a cubicle, you’ll need upper body and back strength, and it’s easy to pull a muscle or hurt your back if you don’t know how to properly lift heavy items. Space Makers crew members are trained in how to safely lift heavy objects.
JUNK REMOVAL COMPANIES CAN DO THE WHOLE JOB MORE QUICKLY
A total office cleanout can take a lot of work and time. If you take on the task yourself, you’ll likely have to make many trips to several places to dispose of office furniture, especially cubicles. Or you may end up having to call numerous organizations to pick up items destined for different places, like a donation center, a recycling center, or the landfill. Junk removal services like Space Makers have specially designed trucks large enough to handle whole office cleanouts, meaning they can usually do the job in one day, if not in a few hours.
PROFESSIONAL REMOVAL SERVICES ARE MORE ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY
Although part of a junk removal company’s job is to take unwanted or broken items to a landfill, companies like Space Makers try keep items like cubicles out of landfills by donating them to charitable organizations that can reuse them or resell them, or by finding recycling centers. In addition, having one large truck on the highway means fewer emissions and less fuel consumption than using several smaller trucks or pickups with trailers for multiple trips to those kinds of places.
