8 Benefits of Fully Serviced Office Space with a short term lease

Finding a place to set up your new business in New York is no easy task. There are tons of things to consider when looking for a space for your startup or a new home for your established business. If you are looking for a short-term lease in New York, you should consider a fully serviced space. Here are the top eight reasons why a fully serviced office space could be the right fit for your business needs:

1. The transition is easier.

Moving your workspace can cause troublesome downtime from the important day-to-day tasks of running a business. Finding a suitable space, setting up a network, furnishing the space, and all of the other necessary steps can be very time-consuming. Most new businesses do not have the stability or resources to be able to shut down or slow their operations for very long, if at all. A fully serviced office can make moving in and getting back to work as easy as possible. 

2. Flexible leases that work for you.

It can be difficult to find a shorter lease in New York for a traditional commercial space. Commercial leases are commonly three to five years, but can go much longer. Commercial property owners are generally not interested in the hassle of a short-term lease. This can be especially inconvenient for entrepreneurs who are looking for a startup office space. Fully serviced offices are generally very flexible and they often have month-to-month plans available.

3. Eliminate secondary costs of traditional offices.

The monthly rental cost of a traditional office space may be lower, but what about the much higher initial costs and secondary expenses? The price of a traditional office space is much more than simply the rental price. You must factor in maintenance, cleaning, furnishing the space, and several other costs that come with a traditional office space to understand the true monthly cost.

4. Work with a professional administrative staff. 

In addition to the hurdle of finding an office with a short-term lease in New York, a traditional office will also need people to help you run and maintain your office. This means going through the process of posting available jobs, interviewing candidates, and hiring suitable staff. A serviced office eliminates the need to hire administrative staff, maintenance staff, and janitorial staff. A serviced office will come fully staffed with professionals who are already familiar with the area and can assist you with your transition into your new office. Not only will you save time and effort by not having to go through the hiring process, but answering calls and many other day-to-day tasks and distractions are eliminated as well.

5. Prestige of your own fully furnished office environment.

A home office may be fine for the initial stage of a startup company, but what about when you need to impress potential investors or meet with a client? It can be harder to come across as a worthy investment if your company does not warrant a space outside of your own home. A modern, well-furnished, and fully serviced office space makes a great first impression and sets the tone for positive and professional interactions with anyone who visits your office.

6. Pay for what you need.

When you lease a traditional office space, you are generally paying for a large amount of space that is rarely used. Meeting rooms, conference rooms, extra office space, etc. can all add up to a lot of money that you may not even realize is being wasted. If you find a suitable lease in New York, you may want a larger office than you currently need to allow for your company to grow. This is wise planning for the future, but you will be paying for space that you do not currently utilize. A fully serviced lease allows you to pay for only the space that you need and makes future expansion very easy.

7. Gain access to premium resources.

The office resources available at a fully furnished office space are generally more modern and well maintained than you would find in a typical office. You will often find top-of-the-line networks, presentation/teleconferencing equipment, printers, and any other traditional office equipment that you may need. This equipment is maintained and serviced regularly to ensure that it is working properly. 

8. Get a prime location for networking.

The location of your office can be a very important factor in the success of your business. Fully serviced offices are often found in prime locations in business districts. When you get a fully serviced office space, you are likely to be surrounded by like-minded people with whom you can network.

It is easy to see that a fully serviced office can remove a lot of the hassle of moving your business or setting up an office for the first time. When looking for a short-term lease in New York, make sure to consider a serviced office space.
