How to select the perfect serviced office for your business

31/07/2009

Now that you’ve decided to take serviced office space the next step is to select a provider. With over 1000 business centre locations in the UK alone the choice can seem daunting. 

We recommend that you pin down a clear geographical area of where you want to be based. This may be a county or town but the more specific you can be the easier your search will be. Can you narrow your search down to a postcode area or in Central London; a street or Tube station?

Now search in Google for serviced office space in Canary Wharf and hey presto you’ll be presented with relevant websites. 

We recommend that you go direct to the operator (rather than through broker sites), as you benefit from far better rates. Once you have a short list of centres give them a call, explain your requirement and if you like what you hear arrange a viewing. Tours really are the best way to judge not only the quality of the office space but also how well the centre is run and what the other clients are like.

Here are a few pointers to help you find the right serviced office location: 

  • Ease of Access – is the centre easy for you, your staff and visitors to get to? What are the transport links like? Do you need on-site parking?
  • Location – possibly the number one and overriding factor for all decision makers. City Centre or Countryside Retreat? Close to an airport or Out of Town Business Park? The choice is endless. You also need to weigh up the ‘message’ your office will give out to your clients. 
  • The Team – Ask the centre team questions. Are they being truly flexible to suit your requests? Do they have the ability to solve your problems immediately? What additional business services could they offer i.e. meeting rooms? Remember this centre team will be managing your office and interacting with your clients on a day to day basis.
Use these tips and you’ll be well on your way to choosing the best serviced office provider for your business.
