How Does Shipping Work?: Office Furniture Center offers a variety of shipping and delivery options for both local and nationwide customers. For select new and pre-owned items- products that can be easily and affordably shipped across the country will be tagged with a 'NATIONWIDE UPS SHIPPING' tag on our website. We offer a $50 local-delivery fee for up to (3) items within 25-miles of the Office Furniture Center showroom (excluding Union buildings). If you are looking to ship larger items, such as private offices and workstations nationwide, we will need to generate a freight-quote for you (this typically takes 24-48 hours to find the lowest rate). Applicable shipping options will be displayed during checkout once your enter your Zip Code.
What Is Your Return Policy?: Office Furniture Center offers a 30-day return policy on all pre-owned products. If you are located in the Chicagoland area, simply bring your items back to our showroom and we can either exchange them or process a refund for you. For orders that are shipped nationwide: If there are any major issues with condition or functionality, we will pay for your return shipping. If you had your item shipped using our nationwide shipping options and simply do not like the item, you will be required to pay for return shipping.
What Warranties Do You Offer?: Office Furniture Center offers a 5-Year Limited Warranty on all Refurbished and Remanufactured items. We do not offer a warranty on pre-owned items, only our 30-day return policy. Warranties on new products are specific to each manufacturer and may vary from product to product.
When Will Your Receive More 'XYZ' Product?: The majority of our pre-owned inventory is acquired through offices that are downsizing or closing. This means that we receive inventory sporadically, and typically will not know exact quantities and features of products until the product is at our warehouse. Because of this, knowing exactly when we will have new product is tricky. The best way to stay up-to-date on our inventory is to check out our website every few days.
What Does 'Custom Delivery Quote' Mean?: If you are looking to have an item shipped outside of the Chicagoland area, we offer a 'custom delivery quote' option during checkout. When you select that option, our team reaches our to our network of delivery suppliers to find you the lowest price available. If the product you are looking to purchase is tagged with the 'NATIONWIDE UPS SHIPPING' tag on our website, the price will always be lower using UPS.
How Can I Check The Status Of My Order?: To check the status of your order, simply log into your OFC Account via our website. If you cannot log in, or have other questions about your order, reach out to our chatbox in the lower left-hand corner of our website, or give us a call!
When Will My Order Ship?: Office Furniture Center actively works to ship orders as quickly as possible. The majority of our online orders are cleaned and packaged as orders are placed, so we currently have a 5-10 BUSINESS DAY LEAD TIME FOR ORDERS TO LEAVE OUR WAREHOUSE + TRANSIT TIME.

Our normal business hours are Monday-Friday from 8AM-5PM and Saturdays from 10AM-3PM (business hours may vary due to holidays, etc.).
Are Your Products Cleaned?: Office Furniture Center cleans and inspects all of our products when we receive them to eliminate any odors and dust. We also clean our products before we ship them.
Why Are Your Prices So Low?: Office Furniture Center prides itself on providing affordable and sustainable alternatives to buying new office furniture. Because the majority of our products are pre-owned, we are able to sell our products a fraction of the price of buying new.
Can You Send Pictures Of The Actual Item?: Our website does not contain any stock-pictures of pre-owned items. All of the pictures on our website are of actual products that we sell, and will depict typical wear and tear to give you a better idea of what you will be receiving. We use a professional photographer who crops our pictures out to give them that 'stock photo' look.
