Q. Office transitions are a lot of work - how can you help us?
George Walkers have worked with thousands of 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 often stood the test of time. Often the furniture is almost new but a lease has expired and cost of having down time while moving desks to new premises is too much – so a new office is set up and staff are moved straight over with no need to close operations. Sometimes furniture in one place doesn’t work with the design or layout of the new premises etc. We can blend new furniture with ex-corporate to even further reduce the costs. With all of this in mind, we can work closely with your team to understand your needs, wants and desires, help you create a custom made floor plan, and then arrange all of the items you need. We can then arrange delivery and set up when you need it. Making sure that we have a great partnership to make this transition as easy for you as possible.
