Think back to when you first set up your business and all the questions that you had to ask yourself when it came to choosing an office. Where would the best location be? How much space might you need? Will you be likely to expand? Will you be successful? All of these same questions apply when it comes to expanding your business too.
Your business may expand in two different ways. Firstly, you might want to increase operations in your current location because you are doing so well. This could include taking on additional staff and so needing a bigger office space to accommodate them all. Alternatively, you might be thinking of opening up a new branch of your business in another location, which is when the above questions need to be answered. Here are some of the ways in which serviced offices can help you achieve either of these expansion methods.
Larger Business Premises
Serviced offices are ideally suited to businesses which start small and want to grow. When you first start up, you might not have the funds to pay for a large office in the hope that business will soon be booming and you’ll have staff beavering away in every corner. And why should you have to pay out for space that you don’t currently need when that money could be invested elsewhere in the business?
Rather than having to shell out for additional new Liverpool office space, for example, or having to wait out your lengthy lease on your current premises before you can move, going with serviced offices Liverpool means you’ll have a flexible lease which you can expand within the business centre to take on more square footage as and when you need it.
Premises in a New Location
Deciding to start again in a new location can be a gamble, but can be one worth the risk. Choosing a serviced office for your new branch has multiple advantages. In the same way as with your original premises, you’ll have the flexibility on your lease to expand if things go well, and you’ll also be able to benefit from a shorter lease in case they don’t.
If you’ve established that there is a gap or a need in the current location in your market, then you’ll no doubt want to get going straightaway, and especially before any competitors get there. You’ll be able to move into a serviced office immediately, with furniture and fittings already in place and utilities set up so you really could start trading the very same day if you wanted to.
You’ll also have the essential staff already on site to help you get started if you’ve not managed to recruit other employees just yet. A full-time receptionist to field your calls, take messages and greet visitors on behalf of your company will be a huge benefit, as will cleaning and security personnel.
