When making a decision…
Top tips for finding the right virtual office for your business
- Visit the address
Even though you aren’t physically based in the building, you need to make sure the address sets the right first impression for your business. Go check it out for yourself, as one day you may want to move your business there!
- The more flexible the contract the better
When finding the right virtual office for you make sure you check the terms of the contract. Virtual offices are ideal for creating a good impression for your business, but if it’s a short term solution then make sure you’re not tied into a 12 month contract. We’d always recommend entering an agreement where all that’s needed is a 4 week notice of termination to minimise costs for your business.
- Test the service yourself
If you are choosing a virtual office package that involves call handling, always ring reception unannounced to test how they handle your calls. The virtual office team handling your calls will be an extension of your business, you need to have the confidence that they take your business calls if you are ever unavailable.
- Join a business community
As you are registering your company with a physical address, you should find a virtual office provider that actively looks to provide you with the same opportunities as physical office tenants. Whether that be tenant networking events, discounted meeting rooms, or website promotion, you want to find a virtual office provider who treats you as part of the business community, an actively looks to integrate you with the other businesses within the building. So do your research!
