Serviced offices are extremely popular because they can help businesses of all sizes to save money.
Originally they held many advantages that suited mainly small businesses, but now larger organisations have also started to realise that they can cut costs by moving to a serviced office.
Here are the top six ways Click Offices can find you a serviced office that really benefits your business and helps you save money.
1. One Upfront Cost
One of the biggest advantages that businesses have found is that they only have to pay one single upfront cost each month which includes everything they need. So, while a traditional lease would have a separate charge for rent, rates, maintenance, utilities, telecoms, security and cleaning, a serviced office includes all of these in one bill. What’s more, you’ll usually have office furniture included too, which really cuts costs.
The serviced office model saves you money, particularly when looking at London office space where extra charges could be astronomical, and saves you the hassle of having to organise all of these services yourself too.
2. Shorter Rental Agreements
If you’re setting up in a new location or with a new business, it can be hard to know how successful you might be, so signing a five or even ten-year lease with a landlord can be extremely scary and can leave you still paying long after you’ve shut up shop and moved on.
If you want to try out offices without risking everything, however, then you should look at a serviced office – rental agreements are significantly shorter and you usually have the flexibility to increase or decrease space as you need to.
3. Extra Rooms When You Need Them
You may find that your day-to-day business needs only require a small amount of office space, but that on occasion you need to welcome clients or colleagues from another branch and need some extra space. Most business centres have meeting rooms which can be hired on a daily, or even hourly, basis, so you won’t have to pay for extra space on a permanent basis but which is mostly left unused – you can just add on what you need, when you need it.
4. Save Money On Additional Services
If you had to employ a receptionist, cleaner or security guard for the year, you’d probably end up shelling out quite a lot in labour costs. Yet these services are all essential for keeping your business secure and professional. Most business centres include cleaning and security as part of the package, and you can often also engage the services of a receptionist based in the property who can welcome your visitors and take phone calls as if they were working directly for you.
5. Better Location
It would be very expensive to take out a traditional lease in a smart area of London, for example, but a serviced office gives you that great location in a swish building at a fraction of the cost. Having a good location will also probably earn you more money as your clients will be able to get to you more easily.
