Virtual offices can be the answer to winter woes as the darker mornings and evenings start to bite at either end of the working day, leaving more and more of us trying to navigate urban streets and country roads in the dark.
Putting the clocks back may gain us an extra hour of daylight in the mornings, but it’s at the cost of a darker evening commute – so why put yourself through a commute at all, if you don’t have to?
Our virtual offices in London and Manchester give you all of the benefits of a static address in a desirable location, with postal forwarding and telephone call forwarding, but without the need to come into the office in person.
How do virtual offices work?
With our virtual offices in Manchester and London, you get a physical postal address at our premises, with your business name at the top, as well as a non-geographic telephone number for customers to use.
Everything is unbranded – except for your own brand – so if a client, supplier or anybody else writes or calls, the post will be forwarded on to you or the telephone call transferred immediately to your number.
All of this is without you being on the premises in person, so you are free to work from home and avoid that freezing, dark morning and evening commute, or even to work from wherever you happen to be if you travel a lot.
Virtual offices, real meeting rooms
Working from virtual offices still gives you the option of accessing our physical premises too – you can book meeting rooms in London and Manchester at the same address as your virtual office whenever you need somewhere to meet clients, candidates and potential investors.
And if you ever decide you want physical premises for your business, we also provide serviced office space at those same addresses, so you can seamlessly transition to a bricks-and-mortar business as you grow.
But in the meantime – or indefinitely, if you choose – virtual offices put you in control of where you spend your working day and can mean even on these short winter days, you can time your meetings to allow you to drive to and from our premises in daylight.
Reduced meeting room rates with virtual offices
Finally, on top of all of the other benefits of our virtual offices – lower overheads, transparent and professional services, and the flexibility to switch to on-site serviced offices if you wish – you also get reduced meeting room rates.
That means if you decide to hold a meeting, interview, sales pitch or any other in-person appointment in our meeting rooms in Manchester or London, as a virtual offices customer it will cost you less.
It’s just one more way we at the Serviced Office Company allow you to work flexibly from a prime business address, while making sure you hold on to more of the profits you make from your business activities – not just in the winter months, but all year round.
