A serviced office is already setup with everything that you need from the day you move into it. A great option for those that would prefer to have everything included into one payment. Serviced office providers are responsible for the upkeep of day to day tasks, ensuring everything runs smoothly. This includes the front desk, stocking the kitchen with amenities, cleaning, replacing broken light bulbs and installing the WiFi. This means that you can focus all of your attention onto your business.

Serviced offices are great for companies who wish to move to their desired location quickly and efficiently. They provide flexibility compared to leasehold offices as they have various sized options. This can be great for businesses to size up or down according to the needs of the business. Unlike the traditional office space, a serviced office ensures the company only pay for the space or desks that are being used.

Inevitably, this office type has become a popular option for businesses. Allowing for the small and tedious tasks of what running an office entail to be handled by service providers, which again packaged within what you would be paying. 

Serviced offices charge businesses a single inclusive monthly cost based on a per desk price. The price is established based on location, quality and interior design. Contact the Victor Harris team on 020 7183 8458 or info@victorharris.co.uk to find out more.

Flexibility & Scalability 

Serviced offices are great for start-ups and entrepreneurs, ideal for companies not looking to commit to long-term contracts with hidden costs such as maintenance. Similarly for businesses that are expanding into new markets, this is a great option due to the short-term rental option. Particularly after the pandemic, the serviced office has become the more desired choice due to the flexibility and move-in ready nature of the spaces. 

Serviced offices are the best option for accommodating growth due to the unpredictability of running a new business or freelance operation. For example, if a business takes on new hires and realise they need more space to operate comfortably, they can expand in a fuss-friendly manner. 

The services provided in these spaces also include bookable meetings rooms and a managed reception area. This ensures that the office is maintained in a professional and accessible manner, and so making it great for hosting guests.

A Stimulating Workspace

Many serviced offices strive to provide bespoke and unique aesthetics and layouts such as plush furniture or unique design features. According to what your company provides, being a creative company to a corporate one, the spectrum is wide full of options that would fit your ideal workspace appearance. This is also a selling point as it can negate the sense of monotony that can be intrinsic to the more traditionally bland office environment. Post-pandemic life has pushed for a place that is for wellness as well as work. Many serviced offices offer extra amenities, such as lounges, pool tables and events, all organised by the office provider. 

Summary of a Serviced Office

To conclude, the benefits of a serviced office include flexibility to choose how long you need the office for and how much space you need. The facilities are all included in a monthly payment, and you only pay for what you use. Ultimately, everything is ready for you, along with amenities. You do not need to think about fitting the office yourself – you can simply move in.
