    Hi all,

    I was recently referred to this forum by a colleague. Our business has just won a new contract, which sees us recruit an additional team, and we require additional desks to house this team. This contract is short term however, so rather than purchase a new set of desks, I was wondering if anyone knew of any sources of free, or even second hand / reclaimed desks. No idea where to start, anyone with any ideas?

    Thanks

    We have just got rid of a whole pile of perfectly serviceable furniture and office stuff on Gumtree at about £10 each and a perfectly functioning deep freeze at £20. I suggest you look there!

    Check out freecycle uk , its normal homeowners with stuff they just want rid of. It may not be matching, but there is always computer desks etc that appear on it, and you can search by town, so you can pick who ever lives closest to your business presmises. The idea behind it is to stop unwanted larger items going to landfill. There's quite a few similar sites like this out there too.

    Same as above, we have found eBay and Freecycle to be extremely useful in the past. What's more, office furniture tends to be sold in bulk when upgrading etc

    How about trying warp-it (waste and recycling project) it is national but there are local members who donate such as universities and councils.
