“…Gillian and the team at Want Dont Want went the extra mile. From helping me shape the vision for our new office, to pushing for the very best deals; they were there to help every step of the way.

Rich Field (Creative Director, 10x)

Hi Gillian,

I wanted to drop you a note to say thank you for your service, we achieved a great result  in such a short period. It is really satisfying to know that nearly 65% of our furniture will be reused and that was down to you guys.

Super, super stuff!

Wendy Langan, Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems Europe, Ltd

Many thanks to you and the WantDontWant team, easy website to look through, easy ordering and fantastic delivery and set up service provided through you. Loving the furniture supplied and the service was fantastic. We will certainly be talking to you again when we next need some new office furniture.

John Radford MD, JR Events
I couldn't have done this last project without you - really big thanks! 
Jenny Noon, Time Inc

Hi Charlie
The furniture arrived 1215, excellent condition, as new! Your description of all pieces was spot on.  The delivery team were great; efficient, professional and cheerful.
As always you and the team at WDW have been a pleasure to do business with.
Feel free to use any of the above as testimonial.
Kind regards

They are extremely friendly, professional and make sure that everything has gone smoothly with your order from start to finish. Would highly recommend! 
Sonia Reini - Office Manager, PaymentSense

Want Dont Want offer a friendly and affordable ‘broker’ service and are now my first port of call when I need any office furniture.

Having previously used Want Dont Want to furnish offices during refurbishment, I had every confidence that they would be able to save me a substantial amount of money when I needed to equip our new offices in London.

I’m delighted to say that we found exactly what we needed, at the fraction of the prices quoted elsewhere, and the service was as attentive and reliable as I had previously experienced.

Alison Nightingale - UK Power Solutions

"We used Want Dont Want when sourcing particular furniture for our new office in London. The process was straightforward and efficient, including delivery and build. I would have no hesitation in using them again."

“The staff and service at wantdontwant is excellent. I have bought and sold a number of items through wdw over the years and always found them to be very proactive. I would certainly recommend them” 

D Brooks - Virtual Human Resources

What a great find! Phil was very helpful, the website was very easy to use and the furniture we bought was of excellent quality and a great price. Cannot fault the process in any way and would certainly use Want Dont Want again and recommend them to anyone looking to buy decent second hand office furniture!

WantDontWant were recommended to me as a company that could get good prices for quality unwanted furniture.  I certainly haven’t been disappointed, they have been professional, efficient and with all transactions being concluded seamlessly.
Jill Tucker, Talk Talk plc
“We were really struggling to find a good way to dispose of our office furniture before a contact recommended WDW.  
Initially quite skeptical but with nothing to lose, we decided to go through their listing process.  We were delighted with the outcome, with most items finding new homes at WDW’s recommended prices.  

Adrian, Gillian, Phil and Eva were our principal contacts at the company and were 100% professional throughout the process.  We would wholeheartedly recommend WDW to anyone looking to sell their office furniture.”
Specialist finance company, London W1J.

“I recently had the very good fortune to use the services of WDW to empty a large office of unwanted furniture and other items, following an office move. I received the most professional, courteous service from all of the team from the beginning through to the end, and the financial results were far in excess to offers I had received from dealers wanting to clear the office.


I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending the services of WDW, and have to say a special thanks to Gillian, who must be their best sales person. A pleasure working with you.”


John Lewis

My company has used “Wantdontwant” now on two occasions (2009 & 2014) to furnish offices in Essex & Leeds.  On both occasions we have bought desks, chairs, storage and boardroom furniture and the quantities have been reasonably large % (50 – 70) desks, chairs etc.

On both occasions I have been impressed by your efficiency, friendliness, customer service, the range, price and quality of what we have purchased from you and the speed at which we have been able to satisfy our requirements.  Your website is now very user friendly and quick to update.

You have an excellent business and your team are a great pleasure to deal with. You have clearly worked very hard to achieve that & deserve to succeed.

G Robertson, Chairman, Robertson & Co

Many thanks for all your help in disposing of the furniture, you certainly managed to sell more than we had anticipated and we will have no hesitation in recommending you to others.

Ocado used Want Dont Want to provide a significant amount of used furniture (200+ chairs, 50+ filing units and other assorted items) for a move into their new offices. The equipment provided was of a good standard and transaction was well managed.

Ocado felt that Want Dont Want provided an environmentally sound, cost effective and flexible service. We again used Want Dont Want to provide good quality second hand furniture (200 chairs) for our recent move into new offices and would have no hesitation in recommending them to potential vendors or clients.

I just want to say that the tambour steel ‘SteelFrame’ cupboards we purchased are fabulous! We are delighted with them.
The company we collected them from was very helpful. Everything is just as described and we feel that we have ourselves a bargain on some really good quality units!
We have used you in the past and shall certainly make Want Dont Want our first port of call again should we need your services again.
We are very happy customers indeed.

"WantDontWant have been fantastic. As a new business setting up, our requirements have changed constantly. WDW's flexibilty and their abililty to work to such tight timeframes has proved invaluable to our business. Thank you Gillian and the rest of the team".
Andrew Ferdinando - The Hubworking Centre
"I would like to give a massive thank you to everyone I dealt with at wantdontwant, with special thanks to Gillian Rossiter for her patience, professionalism, and design skills. I stumbled on the wantdontwant website by chance while looking for furniture for our new premises. We needed a large quantity of furniture and had a small budget! We found 100 terrific desks, and complimentary storage to fill all our needs. The prices are amazing, and the service second to none. I found all of the team gave an extremely high standard of personalized service from the first phone call through to the delivery and making up of the furniture. If I left messages return calls were always made promptly. When I changed my order, I was accommodated without problems. The prices were so low our financial director was suspicious, and loath to pay the deposit requested, and the staff at WDW were extremely helpful in overcoming this and other difficulties, such as an unexpected change in our moving schedule. I would (and will) recommend WDW to anyone. The entire experience was a perfect blend of the best of modern technology and excellent, old fashioned customer service."
Jackie Newton Operations Director, Chiltern
Thanks to you and the team for the excellent job of disposing of furniture. A very helpful income boost which at first we thought would be a disposal cost.
