Home / Blog / Exeid’s Top 5 Tips for finding the right office space
Whether you are starting a new business venture or relocating your current business, Exeid are best placed to find the optimal office space to suit your business needs.  Everything we do is bespoke – because we know ‘one size’ doesn’t fit all – allowing you to focus on growing and running your business.  Before making a decision it is important to consider the following:  

Location

The location of the offices you do business from is an important factor. From allowing easy access for existing staff and clients, to being in a desirable location to help to attract new employees and clients, the location of your office couldn’t be more important. Consider whether it is important to be located in the city centre and the proximity of main transport hubs. Another factor to consider is having a selection of amenities for your employees and clients to benefit from.  

Size and Flexibility of Agreement

This is an important point to consider when choosing your office space. You should always look for flexibility in length of the agreement. Long, traditional leases aren’t ideal for most small businesses so choose an office that allows you to have shorter terms in order for you to better plan and budget for the short-medium term. Look at offices that have the capacity for you to easily upsize or downsize to meet the needs of your business. Make sure that your office not only has enough space to house your staff, but can also accommodate all of your storage and technology operational needs.  

Cost

It is important to find an office that you can afford and that is flexible enough to accommodate growth. You should also have a clear understanding of the costs and services involved to avoid any hidden costs. Exeid are completely transparent when we quote you a price. We will detail exactly what is included in the price for your office and what other facilities we provide as optional extras.  

Office Furniture

Before making a final decision on the office space you need to check what furniture is included in the agreement.  The basic furniture requirements you should consider include desks, chairs and storage units.  

IT Infrastructure

Most businesses cannot operate without IT and telecoms in place.  A high-speed connection is essential for efficient day to day operations such as using cloud based tools, IP telephony, applications and file transfers. A dependable, super-fast broadband connection a business can take full advantage of cloud based tools to boost productivity, improve service quality and increase growth. You should also consider whether any issues can be easily resolved by an onsite team.
