Everything You Need to Know About Serviced Offices

By: Kausik
Leasing a serviced office is quickly becoming the fastest, easiest way to lease office space for growing companies. Serviced offices provide many advantages such as short leases, fully furnished office space and the flexibility of office expansion. Providers of serviced offices are gaining tremendous credibility as more and more businesses take advantage of these services. These are just a few of the reasons that the serviced office market has been growing rapidly in the last few years.

For companies that are just starting up, the flexibility of short leases with serviced offices can be invaluable. Traditional offices leases can be lengthy and inflexible, assuming that you and your company will be there for years to come with unchanging needs. With traditional leases, if you know that your company will eventually expand, you are forced to lease a larger office even though you won’t be using all of it right away. This can be a costly and unnecessary overhead cost and certainly is an inconvenience.

As an alternative, serviced offices typically only require a lease commitment of a few months, satisfying your business’s short-term needs. And if your company expands quickly, additional office space can be immediately available to you, allowing you to expand your office space to your changing needs.

Serviced offices also offer the convenience of complete office furnishings, equipment such as computers, printers, faxes, phones, etc. all provided with the lease. Some serviced office providers can even offer secretarial support for your company. Generally, a serviced office will be maintained by a building operator that will take care of your basic building and office maintenance, heating, air-conditioning, and utilities. Other office needs that are typically included are security, mail support, phone and telecom connections, IT infrastructure and internet connectivity. Because everything is provided for you, a serviced office lease can save you a lot of money, or even eliminate start-up costs.

Another great advantage to serviced offices is that almost all serviced office providers are completely free to use. You request your desired location, lease length, and space requirements, and they find an office for you – completely free of charge. For example, if you are looking to start up a business in London, you can contact a search provider from anywhere in the world and let them know the general location you are interested in. Once they know your specific needs, they can give you all the locations in the area – most of which are available for immediate occupation. Many of these providers can offer you a variety of office space options in most large cities around the world. With all these conveniences, it’s no wonder that serviced offices are quickly becoming the most popular means to office occupation for all types of businesses.
