Used Steelcase Chairs

If you are looking to save money on your new office set-up, try looking for used Steelcase chairs. Steelcase chairs are top quality office chairs and easy to adjust.

Check out this short video on how to adjust one of Steelcase’s office chairs:

When you are looking for used Steelcase chairs always go and sit in the chair before you buy.

Be sure and look for these chair characteristics:

Condition of the upholstery – look for worn threads – most used Steelcase chairs have an extremely high rub count and last for years if taken care of. Ask the store to clean the chair before you make your decision.

If the chair is a mesh office chair, sit in it to make sure that the ventilation of the back and seat are still good. Mesh office chairs should provide a good airflow up and down the back for comfort.

Used Steelcase chairs have long-lasting adjustments, but check them out. Does the height adjustment work? Can you adjust or remove the arms? Does the back of the chair adjust. Also, very important, can you adjust the seat depth.

Are the swivel and tilt functions working properly?

Roll around for minute to make sure all of the casters work well.

Used Steelcase chairs are an excellent savings and can often be found in larger quantities from companies who are downsizing or relocating and plan to update their office image.


Work Spaces for Introverts!

Found a very interesting video by Steelcase® about workers who are introverts and the right workspaces for introverts.  According to the Steelcase® study, 1/3 to 1/2 of all employees are introverts and their brains react differently to stimuli such as sights, sounds and surroundings as extroverts.  Do you have introverts in your office?  And you likely do — are you providing the best environment for the introvert employee to be the most productive?

Watch this video and think about it!


If you are not providing the best environment – perhaps you have an open benching panel system and your employees need cubicles with high walls or glass panels – think about reconfiguration of your cubicles.

Several companies offer free space planning for cubicle reconfiguration.


How To Install Cubicles

Are you looking to install cubicles in your office?  Perhaps it is time to update your look or you need to reconfigure your cubicles for more space.  We found a great video by Bargain Office Equipment in Detroit on how to install Steelcase® cubicles.  Kevin and Mark make it look easy but warning —  it is harder than it looks!

Remember, if you are relocating your office as long as the workstations are down, you are essentially out of business.  It is best to outsource you moves to make sure you get up and running as quickly and efficiently as possible.  If you are in the Houston area, two recommended sources to install cubicles  are and http://officefacilities

What to expect from a company assigned to your cubicle install.

  • A project manager who is assigned to install cubicles and office furniture and will work with you every step of the way.
  • Does the company offer turnkey service or do you have to be on site.
  • How  long as the company been in business.
  • Have they done cubicle installs before?
  • Are they insured?
  • Can they do a install cubicles on weekends or after  hours?
  • Are all fees included in the estimate?  (Look for  hidden fees if moving  or to install cubicles over 2 or three stories and stairways).
  • Do they provide the electricians.
  • Will they work with your designer or architect?
  • Can they furnish a CAD drawing of where to install cubicles?
