Although serviced offices are typically associated with providing a short term solution for companies not looking to commit to a conventional lease, Abbey has found that once clients sign up at Weybridge they don’t seem to want to leave! In fact, over the past 4-5 years the centre has run close to an impressive 100% occupancy, proving that clients at this prestigious business address are a very happy bunch indeed.
Back in March, Abbey Business Centres revealed that its clients were so contented that they were staying with them for longer and longer. The high quality serviced office operator, which offers a prestigious London and UK portfolio, announced that the average stay, per client, is now 30 months; a figure that is up by approximately 10% on 2007.
Abbey has put its extended client retention down to a combination of great customer care, money saving opportunities and lease flexibility. In a recent press release, Julie Calder, Managing Director of Abbey Business Centres commented: “Leads and inquiries are up on last year and established clients are staying longer either because they like where they are or because they are wary of taking on the responsibilities and commitment of a conventional office lease. The all-in charging structure of serviced offices helps them budget, which is a comfort in these difficult times.“
And, its not just start ups and small businesses that thrive with Abbey, the operator has attracted many major corporations over the years, Julie added: “Our clients include Telefonica, O2, Virgin Money, Shell, Experian, Barclays and Laing O’Rourke.“ At Weybridge the serviced offices are located at the bottom of St George’s Hill, home to Surrey’s Super Rich and one of the reasons that the centre does so well. A high-profile location and close proximity to the homes of those in the western wealth corridor has put the centre in good sted to attract local entrepreneurs wanting to set up and expand near to home. The centre also sits opposite the grounds of the historic Brooklands Race Course and Mercedez-World complex helping create a prestigious working environment.
But you don’t have to belong to the super rich crowd to afford serviced offices at Weybridge. Recently a number of configurations suitable from 1 up to 10 people have become available here at EXCELLENT RATES plus clients that sign before the end of July can also get one month rent free!*
