Serviced offices offer a plethora of conveniences for many modern businesses, particularly those who still do not have their own office furniture (or who do not want to spend a significant part of their budget on such), those who cannot be bothered trying to schedule the installation of their Internet and telephone lines and other IT concerns, or simply those who would like to do away with all the hassles and inconveniences involved in renting a conventional office.
If you yourself are contemplating a serviced office for your business, it would be a good idea to find out as much as you can about the amenities and facilities being offered by the serviced office you have in mind. It would also be in your best interest to learn more about what to expect when you do sign up for a serviced office.
Frequently asked questions about serviced offices
When can I move in?
What most people don’t realise is that if they opt for a serviced office, they can move in on the same day itself. Once you have signed the contract or agreement, you are entitled to move in to the office at any time – even within the same hour.
What if I need to have more space for my business? What will happen then?
Most serviced office locations offer a number of differently-sized office spaces which are ideal for businesses of any size. For instance, serviced offices in Swindon from The Dorcan Complex (you can learn more about their offices by visiting thedorcancomplex.com) come in different sizes – there are offices which are perfect for one to five individuals, and there are also offices which are ideal for about six to 15 office staff. There are even offices that are big enough for up to 50 workers, so you really do not have to worry about having to expand in the future. If you need a bigger office space, you can easily find it and arrange for a different contract or agreement.
What if I would like to decrease my office space?
The reverse is true for serviced offices as well – if you would like to have a smaller space for your office, you can do so without having to think about any additional expense. Downsizing your office space is entirely possible and easily arranged with a serviced office.
Are the utilities included in the rent?
You will also be happy to know that most serviced offices already include the cost of the utilities in the rent that you have to pay. This includes utilities such as heating and air conditioning, electricity, and more. What is also great about this type of arrangement is that you do not have to think about your utility bills any more – when to pay them, how much they cost, etc. These are all taken care of for you, freeing up your own time as well.
Will I be able to ‘personalise’ my office space?
Most serviced offices on offer today are designed to provide you with a general look and feel of a corporate office – but if you would like to have your space more ‘personalised’ and ‘customised’, you can probably do so with permission from the operator of the serviced office. They may even be able to customise the office’s layout for you without any additional cost.
Do I have complete access to my office space at any time?
The answer to this question is a resounding yes. You will have complete access to your serviced office any time you like, so you can basically come and go 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
