Has your small business outgrown the garden, the front room or the garage? Do you find that the cramped space you are working in is closing in on you and that it cannot accommodate your growing needs?
As small businesses grow at amazing speeds, many small business owners are grappling with the dilemma of finding affordable business centers to operate from. A virtual office and a one-room space can provide a start-up, but they cannot help the business establish a professional business address. Only a commercial office in an up market location can do that.
This is where the current trend of leasing executive offices can help.
What is a leased commercial office?
Normally, business owners would rent a building or an office. They would then have to deal with a number of endless details like utilities, telephony, furniture, facilities and so on. On top of that, there would be a time gap between looking for the perfect office premises and finding a place that can be a good business address for your company. Then, there is the designing work and the décor to be taken care of.
By leasing an executive office, your business acquires an established commercial office in a good location in town. The office contains all the facilities you would normally require for running a business including office furniture, secretarial rooms, conference halls, telephony, facilities for high speed internet access and state of the art business equipment.
Some of the advantages of leasing a business address include:
1. Flexibility: Ready to use business centers offer you a lot of flexibility. Business owners are under no obligation to sign a long lease as is traditionally done while renting an office building. That means, small business owners can easily upgrade to better facilities as their needs evolve, without having to cut down on staff or skimp on space.
2. Speed: When you lease a ready-to-use business center, you have the freedom to move in, set up shop and start working in less than 24 hours! You will get fully furnished executive offices, with additional services thrown in, without wasting your time or energy on arranging these.
3. Impressive facilities: Fully furnished business centers generally come with: – Office furniture – Office equipment, which will be charged according to usage – Telephone services, which will be charged according to usage – Answering and fax machines – Postal services, which will be charged according to usage – Meeting room rentals – Conference halls – Refreshment areas
4. Inexpensive: Since the office equipment is maintained by the service provider, running costs are low. For a new business that leases a serviced business center, start up costs are low while they still enjoy the use of tastefully decorated business environments. State of the art equipment is available at a fraction of the cost it would normally require to purchase, install and maintain these.
