MAKING TRANSITION EASY
 
George Walkers works with corporate NZ companies helping them choose the most sustainable option for them whether moving/expanding or liquidating..
 
Our tag line is WHY BUY NEW? We find that ex corporate office furniture is the best quality and has stood the test of time - often the furniture is quite new and the only reason for selling is it does not work logistically if a client has 50 or more staff waiting for the furniture to be RE FITTED - staff are moved to an IN-SITU already set up offices as there is no productivity for the business while they are waiting for the reset and also often the existing furniture does not fit the new space efficiently..
 
I will attach a photo of a fit out we did saving the client 10s of thousands of dollars, this customer has been a repeat customer setting up branches all over NZ..
 
In some cases we blend new furniture with ex corporate to even further reduce the costs saving $$s on the budget..
 
NO TO LANDFILL..
 
We sell to over 3000 nz companies per year over 7000 items 5000 CUBIC METERS that does not reach land fill as well as over 2000 further  cubic meters donated to the community..
 
Carriers remove from the site and deliver to our Megastore in Rosebank Rd - prices paid for job lots of furniture is determined by age and degree of labour for removal - when removal costs are too great the client pays for the removal and GW pays a contribution to help - GW takes the good and the bad regardless as this is the service we stand by to help our customers in their transition as often TIME is the issue..
 
Storage is also a huge issue to our customers as well as ourselves there for fast turnover on budget items as well as donating is paramount..
 
INNOVATION.
GW  refurbish recover and re design much of the furniture..partitions are a specialty of GW due to the original cost can be 10s of thousands of dollars - an example of this is a new partition can cost over $500 where ours start at $80
We refurbish the best quality chairs often the mechanism is top end and the fabric faded example of this is a spectrum 3 chair is over $500 ours refurbished are $275 - there are also chairs form $50..
 
CHARITY AUCTIONS
GW has a  community value which in turn keeps the history and sustainability of GW tied to the past as auctioneers..
GW does not charge for any charity events ..
