About Universal Merchants & Managers

The founders of Universal Merchants & Managers have a combined 60+ years of experience in surplus solutions for commercial furniture, moving, logistics, installation, decommissioning and responsible recycling. We deal in surplus furniture and fixtures every day for Fortune 1000s, hospitals, institutions and hospitality clients. No matter what your need, let us be your first resource. If it’s not in our wheelhouse, we’ll refer you to one of our many contacts who might better meet your needs.


We are universal in two senses of the word. One, we have partnerships worldwide to provide assistance anywhere you need it, and secondly, our abilities are multifaceted — we can solution any part of the furniture surplus process.


We are buyers and sellers of surplus furniture and fixtures. We work directly with property managers and others who are looking to sell, donate or recycle old furniture, and connect them with interested buyers, charitable organizations and approved recycling centers.


You may have a surplus of used furniture to figure out what to do with every so often, but we do this every day. We are expert managers in furniture project logistics. From furniture pickup, delivery and scheduling, we provide consultative and hands-on assistance to manage everything for you.

Who We Work With

If you’re in the beginning stages of a remodel, relocation or decommissioning
If you’ve been burned by an unreliable vendor
If you’re looking to sell or purchase used lots of furniture
If you need to consult with experts in the surplus furniture industry
… we encourage you to contact us to see how we can help.

We work with many of the players involved in the FF&E industry. From property managers, to furniture manufacturers and beyond. Oftentimes labor and distribution companies get stuck with huge quantities of leftover used assets after relocating corporate businesses. The great news is we’re interested in large inventories from top manufacturers and take a lot of the frustration out of figuring out what to do next. We help liquidate surplus furnishings and coordinate the next phase of each piece of furniture’s lifecycle.
