Tips for Choosing Furnished Offices

Posted by Robert Blaker on Dec 17, 2015 2:11:03 PM


When looking at furnished offices for your business, it can be hard to know where to start. These tips will help you in your search for the perfect furnished space for your needs.

Make a List

It is important to consider what you want in a furnished office. Will you need access to a commercial printer? Teleconferencing equipment? Meeting rooms? Make a list of the elements that you would want in your ideal space, and use that as a guide when you are comparing furnished offices online or in person. Create a table that lists the important elements that you are looking for and whether the different places that you are considering offer them. Include prices and any additional notes on the location that may help your decision.

Compare Plans and Amenities

Take time to research the plans available to you. There are often different plans available for your specific needs. A fully equipped business center should have different plans for a wide range of needs. Many furnished office locations are aware that not everyone is looking for a full-time executive suite and they can cater to your preferences. If you are looking for a business address to receive mail and occasional access to meeting rooms or a co-working environment, then a virtual office plan may be the most cost-effective and appropriate plan for your needs.

Flexible Lease Terms 

Part of the benefit of furnished offices is their flexibility. They are equipped to minimize the hassle of moving in and out. Because furnished offices often serve as temporary, transitional, or remote office space, the lease terms are generally more flexible and can offer much shorter terms than traditional commercial office space. This flexibility is attractive to many small business owners looking to expand their business without the initial lease commitment of 3 to 5 years that standard office spaces generally require.

Location Matters

Much of the value of a furnished office comes with its location. Furnished offices in prime locations can be incredible tools for sales and client acquisition. When a potential client is asked to meet at a prestigious location, it can help to set their mind at ease. If you are in a well-known business district, they will probably already have a positive association with your office’s location. The right location can add an heir of professionalism and prestige to your company’s reputation that may be difficult to achieve otherwise.
