These days, as information floods the web, business owners and facilities managers alike can find most of the information they need about office furniture online. However the question remains, should you make theses purchases online? The answer, simply put, is a resounding NO. Regardless of the amount of information you can find on the web, it should be used for informational purposes only. Most office furniture products, particularly cubicles, workstations and desking systems need to be assembled by professional installers. Workstation and cubicles products require a licensed electrician to make all the connections to the building as well as a licensed low voltage contractor to complete the voice and data installation. Even if you deem yourself a "do it yourself type", complications can arise that could significantly raise the initial cost of your purchase as much as 50%, if not more. A reputable office furniture dealer can provide an array of services at a level that online retailers cannot; most times at no additional charge except for delivery and installation. From customer service specialists to design professionals and hands on business owners, the added value of purchasing your furniture from an established dealer is unsurpassed by online retailers.
