To get the perfect office design, ask good questions to your office furniture supplier.


Are you thinking about a new office design,but don’t know where to start? This is a good time to ask questions and truly find out how you really want to lay out your office by asking your office furniture supplier critical questions about office design, office furniture and much needed office supplies. To get started on the right track, try to come up with at least 5 questions to ask your office furniture supplier. The questions should focus on the ideal work environment you want for your office and how you want to redesign the office to resolve office layout issues and upgrade office furniture. One common question people ask their office furniture supplier is this one: ‘How do I create and maintain a modern office design?’

By asking your supplier questions you can learn whether the office furniture supplier is a high quality supplier, provides excellent customer service and learn about the furniture options the supplier has to offer. There are no right and wrong questions to ask, but there are some great questions you can ask the office furniture supplier in order to get the most out of your office design and office furniture shopping. Here are some  questions to ask your office furniture supplier today:

  1. What are your references? This is important to ask the office furniture supplier because word of mouth goes a long way. You will want to learn about the customer experience to find out whether buying office furniture from the supplier is a good investment. Remember, you will want to use an office furniture supplier who is worth using again.
  2. Can you tell me about your delivery price? This is a critical question to ask the office furniture supplier because you do not want unforeseen cost such as freight charges, shipping and handling, taxes and furniture installation. Ask for the total up-front cost as soon as you decide on the furniture you want.
  3. How long do I have to wait for the furniture delivery and installation?  This will help you answer the question about the furniture supplier’s reputation for delivering on time while  keeping you on a budget. You want to buy from a supplier who makes your life more convenient, not stressful. More over, you should ask about the return policy.
  4. What do I need to know about your return policy? This is important to ask because sometimes office furniture doesn’t make for a great fit in a work space. If you do need to return some office furniture, ask about restocking fees and other facts you need to know.

Can you tell me about your furniture warranty policy? No matter the type of furniture you buy for the office, you will want to know about the warranty policy and coverage plan with the policy, including repairs and returns.
