The age-old debate of serviced office vs. traditional office comes down to what’s best for your business, but we think there are plenty of good reasons why serviced office space might come out on top.
Obviously for some large companies, there are benefits to having your own privately owned or long-term leased office premises. But for many businesses big and small alike, the flexibility of serviced office space makes much more sense.
Let’s look at some of the relative merits of serviced office vs. traditional office space, and why you might choose one over the other.
Length of Lease
If you’re looking for the flexibility of a shorter lease, serviced office space is typically more accommodating. While many tenants do stay for years, serviced offices are designed to allow for shorter stays too.
This is ideal for many reasons. Maybe you’re exploring a new local market and want to test the waters before committing to a long-term lease. Or perhaps you’re expecting rapid growth and just need some small premises until things really take off.
Serviced Office Company also offer hotdesking facilities in London, Manchester and Telford, under the same roofs as our serviced offices – so if you just need a desk for a day, we’re open to ad hoc bookings.
Traditional office space is often an empty shell, but our serviced offices come fully furnished with designer brand-name ergonomic office furniture.
We have searched high and wide for the best office chairs, desks and other furnishings, so that when you walk through the door to your new office on day one, it’s comfortable and ready for you at no additional setup cost.
If you prefer to use your own furniture – maybe you have an old faithful office chair that you find most comfortable – that’s great too. It’s your office space, and we want you to feel at home.
Our serviced office space comes complete with non-BT telecoms and high-speed broadband, again allowing you to start working from day one without negotiating any business broadband rates or bundled telecoms deals.
SOC’s meeting rooms in Manchester, London and Telford all include high-quality AV equipment so you can give presentations in style, and again support ultrafast broadband so remote workers can attend meetings virtually via conference call and/or webcam.
We pull out all the stops to give you the high-spec premises you might want in your dream premises, without any of the hassle of installing equipment and arranging contracts.
