So you’ve decided that it’s time to move!
This may be your first move into serviced offices, or you may be relocating from your existing premises, but either way, it is a stressful time and choosing where to move to isn’t a decision that should be taken lightly. Follow our top tips to make sure that the office you choose is the right one for your business and, just as importantly, the right one for you.
- Visit the business centre
This may sound silly, but many people will make their decisions over the phone and the internet. The centre may “sound” great, but you need to actually visit it to make sure it is projecting the right image for your business, and providing the right amenities.
- Check the history
New business centres open up regularly, so look for one that has been established for some time. Moving into a business centre is supposed to make your life easier, so the last thing you want is to have to find somewhere else if the centre closes in six months time. Don’t be afraid to ask questions – a reputable, established centre will be only to happy to provide its credentials.
- Speak to the receptionists
The receptionists will be the front line to your business. You need to be 100% happy with the service each one is providing.
- Plan for the future
You know where you want your business to be in three years time. Does this centre fit the criteria? Can you expand within the premises? Is the centre investing in technology? While it may be suitable for now, you also need to be confident that you can grow your business comfortably from it.
