    Pear Project Services (PPS) helps businesses solve office furniture problems. The PPS team, led by Kathey Pear, brings creativity to the complex and often messy commercial move process. We are passionate about keeping reusable office furniture from being dumped into a landfill simply because there are no good alternatives.

    PPS does not have “not-for-profit” status. We call ourselves an NJFP, “Not Just for Profit”, organization. The revenue stream that we generate from facilities decommissioning and product resale must cover the cost of our labor, vehicles, warehouse facility rental, and other expenses. While our primary goal is to help businesses solve logistics problems and keep furniture in circulation, without a revenue stream we would not be able to keep our doors open or provide our clients with a way to “Save the Furniture”.

    We take no-longer-needed or excess furniture from larger companies and re-home as much as possible with not-for-profit groups, start-ups, and smaller companies that need good used furniture. Every project presents a unique combination of reusable products for us to donate, resell, recycle, and repurpose.

    Creativity and the sincere desire to “Save The Furniture” is our secret sauce.

    We are proud to report that only a small percentage of the furniture we handle ever ends up in a landfill.
