For a startup company or a small business, it is impossible to get by with a meeting here and there, in restaurants or at houses. If you want to make your company to grow and be successful, you need to create a space where people can focus on production, where they can come to share a common goal, and constantly be a part of the work they need to do for your organization. However, if you're as busy as most professionals, it is hard to find the right space and it takes a lot of time. If you have looked at leases, you understand that this process is something you almost don't want to get involved in right now. You're making a long-term decision on location, layout, amenities and all the financial and legal matters that go along with a business lease, including:
- Evergreen renewal terms
- ADA compliance
- Whether you can sublease if your business starts to struggle
- Does the lease cover property taxes?
- Does the lease cover insurance?
- Does the lease cover maintenance?
At a certain point, you have to evaluate your position. For most small businesses that are less than a few years old, temporary office space rental is often the wisest choice. In addition to the considerations listed above, you still have to furnish your space and provide the electronic devices that you guys are going to need. Ready-made temporary office packages provide all this for you. The conference rooms typically have High Def AV systems and the Internet, phone and TV service comes standard. Your chairs, desks, computers, copy machines and phones typically come as part of your lease as well.
If your team is already spending a lot of time on phone calls, telephone conferences and web conferences; if you guys could make use of the conference room regularly; and you guys have a need for more privacy than you have; then this is the ideal solution.
Sometimes you might have to share kitchens, reception areas, break rooms or conference rooms with other firms, but if you contact us at Office Finder, we can negotiate all the details for you and make sure to connect you with an office that meets your company needs for pricing, privacy, professionalism and efficiency.
