Why rent office space?
An office rental is ready to start business from the client’s first day. This includes internet connection and a telephone handset, as well as a telephone number which is exclusive to the client’s company. Office rental companies such as Avanta Managed Offices provide a dedicated centralised call centre, all incoming calls are answered in the client’s company name and calls are put through wherever required, whether it’s to an office or mobile phone.
All workstations consist of a desk, chair, pedestal and half a storage tambour per person. The real benefit of renting an office space is that everything is taken care of so clients can start working straight away. In addition, highly trained centre teams are on hand to help with moving clients into their new office space, again allowing business owners to continue running their company.
Can I customise my office space requirements, or service provision? All businesses have different needs and many serviced office providers can cater for a number of different options. Should a company renting office space need a dedicated internet connection, a private meeting room or individual management offices, an operator like Avanta can accommodate their needs. Flexibility is a crucial aspect of serviced offices and professional operators will work with each business to be able to satisfy their specific requirements.
What am I expected to pay? Historically, monitoring business support services used within a business centre was a laborious task. Nowadays, it is essential to ensure all pricing is transparent so clients are clear on how much these additional support services will cost their business each month.
Office rental provider Avanta offers a standard Business Services Package [BSP] to all clients. This includes all the day-to-day business services packaged into one, easy to manage monthly price. For £99 per person, per month a user receives free local and national calls, an 8Mb shared internet connection, photocopying quota, postal service and unlimited beverages as well as a 20% meeting room discount. This ensures clients can budget effectively and not have to worry about additional costs incurred when photocopying for example. In addition, meeting rooms at Avanta have free internet provision and, where available, clients can use plasma screens and flip charts for free as well.
What location is best for me? Different business centre locations attract different types of industries. For example in the City of London, clients tend to operate within the financial services sector, whereas in the West End clients are more media and creative types. The majority of clients who rent office space are in the 4-6 workstation range but there are a number of large corporations who let large amounts of office space, as well as small start ups and sole traders.
What if my needs change? The flexibility of serviced offices means that clients can upsize, or downsize their office space let as their business requirements change. This ensures that they only pay for the office space they need, which in turn helps keep their costs down.
