It used to be the case that renting office space was an expensive process, and as such it didn’t really make much sense to do so. However, the popularity of rented space has increased to the point where there are now many different companies offering office space, which in turn has meant prices have come down considerably.
Renting office space can actually prove to be a very astute move, especially if you take advantage of some of the great deals that are available. By going through a company that specialises in renting offices to you are effectively getting someone else to do all the setting up for you. Nearly all office space these days comes with options such as high speed broadband, PC networks and telephones. Of course these will all come at an extra cost on top of the actual office space, but they are there, ready to go. You don’t need to worry about the time and effort it takes to get an office up and running technologically because it is all in place for you, and for the small amount of money it will cost it is absolutely worth it. There are other excellent optional services you can take advantage of in these kind of rented office spaces, such as telephone answering services, meet and greet at reception, and the possibility to hire executive meeting rooms by the hour or day, depending on your needs. All these things can create a great impression for your clients, especially if you are a relatively new business, after all, first impressions count.
Another great thing about office space rental is that the building that your office is in is managed by the company you are renting from, so if something goes wrong it isn’t your problem. There will be someone on hand to sort out any problems you may have, quickly and efficiently, which takes a lot of the pressure of the daily management of an office off you.
The fact that you are renting offices in Spitalfields doesn’t necessarily mean you have to share it with other people, unless of course you want to. There are many different types of space to rent, from desks in a shared office, to smaller cubicle style offices, individual offices and larger offices that can accommodate a number of employees. You can choose the type and amount of space that suits your needs, safe in the knowledge that you can up or downgrade should the need arise. There will be communal areas, such as toilets and kitchens that you will more than likely have to share with the other companies renting in the same building, but again these areas are maintained by the company you are renting from so are not something you need to worry about.
As you can see, renting office space gives you all the facilities you may need, and has the advantage of being flexible. The great thing is that you are enjoying all the benefits of office space, without any of the hassle that is inevitable when running an office. You can fully focus on running your business without having to sweat the small stuff!
