delivered assembled office cupboards

Do you really have time to figure it out?

When you’re purchasing office furniture, you often have a choice between flat-pack pieces that you build yourself or furniture that is delivered to you fully assembled. There are pros and cons to each and the right choice for you will depend on a number of factors.

Here we take a look at the benefits of each kind of purchase to help you decide what’s right for you.

Delivered assembled or flat-packed – the pros and cons

Delivered assembled

Having your furniture delivered assembled has a number of advantages. For instance, if you are having a complete office makeover and are purchasing a large number of items, it won’t be efficient to have these delivered flat-packed. You need to spend a lot of time and manpower putting the pieces together which means down-time in other areas.

Not only that, but there are health & safety considerations too. Would staff be covered if they injured themselves putting furniture together? Would they know the finished pieces were stable and secure?

Even if you’re only ordering one piece, you might not have the best DIY skills and could find yourself halfway through building the furniture before realising you need to shell out on a local handyman to help you.

For large desks and cupboards, you also need to make absolutely sure they are stable once they are built. You don’t want a desk to collapse during use, otherwise you could be risking injury as well as damage to equipment.

Flat-packed furniture

Flat-packed furniture does also have its advantages. It is usually cheaper, both to purchase and deliver, as it is much easier to transport. You could even consider picking up the item yourself. Some people enjoy DIY and you might find you prefer putting pieces together yourself. It can be easier to manoeuvre around the office so that you can choose the perfect site for the furniture.

You can also be sure that the pieces will actually fit in the office. Occasionally, delivered assembled goods can cause problems if you have a lot of tight corridors and corners to navigate.

On the downside, with a lot of flat-pack furniture, you find that it comes with a large amount of small parts such as screws and requires a degree in engineering to put together. What happens if you lose one of the parts? And do you really have time to waste figuring out the instructions?

Ready assembled furniture will be delivered by professionals and installed securely in the correct position, leaving you free to get on with what you do best.

Flat-packed or assembled: what should you choose?

You can see that there are advantages to each type of furniture, so what you choose will depend on your own office and personal circumstances. Of course, you might need help with making the decision, so it’s a good idea to get some help and advice.

We have a sales team on hand who would be happy to offer advice; just let them know your requirements and they’ll talk through the options so that you can make the decision that’s right for you.
