BTI expands furniture management and installation services
By: Brookline Transportation Co.
Decommission services are for corporate and non-profit clients. The decommission services involve the disposal of office furniture, computers and hardware, and other office supplies.
"When a business relocates, shuts down or decides to replace furniture and other equipment, it's a bit more involved than loading up a few trucks and taking a trip to the local landfill. There are rules and regulations for the disposal of these types of items. Not to mention nowadays companies have sustainability requirements to consider as well," said George Rohlfing, owner of the family-owned and operated Brookline Transportation, Inc (BTI). "With our new, expanded decommissioning and acquisition services, we can better meet the needs of our clients looking to cycle out, recycle or acquire new furnishings and equipment."
For clients looking to remove old furniture, BTI's decommissioning services include contacting a network of non-profits to find a suitable donor/recipient. In some cases, this type of donation is tax deductible.
Furniture that can't be donated requires specific steps for disposal. Depending on the item, that could involve separating the metal and pre-fabricated materials so recyclable pieces of the furniture can be properly recycled. For office furniture and most other types of office equipment that can't be recycled, it must be taken to a licensed disposal facility.
"We recently performed a decommission of workstations for a customer in the environmental cleanup field. Taking apart the stations for recycling saved them money for disposal and helped them meet sustainability requirements for the company," said Rohlfing.
BTI's decommissioning services also include the coordination and pickup of computers and other pieces of hardware, software and electronics. This includes coordination and issuance of certificates of destruction for each piece.
"When you take a computer or other piece of electronics out of commission, the customer wants to be assured that the hard drives are being shredded and are not being re-used," said Rohlfing. "It's a little bit involved, but we work with licensed and insured companies for the destruction of those items."
In addition to decommissioning services, BTI offers a wide range of relocations services for its residential and commercial customers. For complete information on BTI's relocation services, please visit https://www.usamover.com/
