Whether you have a short-term project or need an interim space between office moves, a temporary office can be a great solution for your business. But what should you look for in a temporary office space, and how can you find the right one for you?
What is a temporary office space?
A temporary office space is, just as it sounds, an office that you rent for a short amount of time. You might need an office for a couple of weeks whilst you renovate your own office space, or for a few months for project-based work; whether you need space for a couple of people or a fully fledged team, a temporary office space can work for your business.
Whatever your needs may be, our short term office spaces have everything ready for you to move in and get started immediately. It’s fully furnished and comes with all the amenities you need for your business, including high-speed broadband, a staffed reception, and cleaning services.
That means you don’t need to worry about all the extra things that usually come with an office space of your own, and you can focus on just getting the work done.
Who might need a temporary office space?
There are lots of reasons why you might need a temporary office space, whether it’s on a daily, weekly or monthly basis. Do any of these situations sound familiar to you?
- You’re in between leases and need a base for your team for a few days or weeks
- Your office space is being renovated or repaired
- You’ve hired contractors or project-based staff and need a location for them to work from
- You’ve hired new staff and need extra office space
- You’re a digital nomad in town for a couple of weeks and want to work from an office space rather than your hotel or coffee shops
- You’re wondering whether your business needs an office space and want to trial it
- You’ve got a big meeting with clients (or potential clients) and want to impress them with a meeting room in a beautiful office space
If any of these apply, then a temporary office space might be the right fit for your company.
What are the benefits of a temporary office?
Whatever your situation, a short term office offers the flexibility you need for your business and your team. If you’re in between offices or waiting for your existing office to be refurbished, you may be facing unexpected delays. With Easy Offices, we provide the flexibility to extend your temporary office contract when you need to, welcoming some relief.
Alternatively, if you’re a start-up, you might be uncertain about how long your cash runway is or when you’re likely to start hiring new staff. Again, you can remove the pressure of lengthly office space contracts with a flexible short term office space that offers all the facilities you need without committing to a long-term contract.
As mentioned, with a new business, you might be worried about getting locked into an expensive long-term contract. A temporary office allows you to experience all the benefits of office life, but because all of the services and facilities you need are included in the cost of the rental, you’ll know what the costs are upfront.
As a small business, it’s impossible to overstate the importance of networking. Whether you’re looking for investment opportunities or simply looking to make like-minded business connections, sharing an office building with other businesses is a great way of getting to know others in your industry. Many office spaces host networking opportunities and social events during lunch breaks and after work, so you can meet other business owners in a relaxed manner – and perhaps even meet your next partner or prospect.
Build a brand
When you’re just starting out in business, it’s important to cultivate a professional image. Although it might be tempting to work from home in your pyjamas, having an office space gives you the opportunity to start cultivating the professional image you want to build for your brand. A temporary office space gives you a business address in a prestigious location and a fully furnished office with a staffed reception will give a great first impression to your clients and customers.
Amenities and facilities
You could work from your living room or from a coffee shop, but a temporary office space provides you with the amenities you need on a daily basis to make your job easier. From document printing and photocopying to access to meeting rooms and co-working spaces, a temporary office isn’t just a place for you to work, but for your business to thrive in.
