Choosing an Office to Rent in Manchester – Three Myths Busted

Whether you’re expanding your bedroom enterprise, relocating to the North West, or you’ve outgrown your existing office space, looking for an office to rent in Manchester is a very tempting proposition. But “Manchester” doesn’t have to mean “city centre”, especially for small to medium-sized businesses.

Carrington Business Park  offer offices to rent on the outskirts of Manchester on a not-for-profit basis.  If you think a central location is a must when renting an office in Manchester, they suggest you think again… 

“I need to be in the city centre to be accessible.”

One of the benefits of renting an office in Manchester is that you can take advantage of the extensive public transport network. You’re never far from a bus route or train station – and there’s even an international airport. For staff and clients travelling by car, a city centre location can actually be a disadvantage, as central Manchester’s roads are notoriously busy and difficult to navigate.

In contrast, Carrington Business Park is very easy to access by road. It’s located just five minutes from the M60 and ten minutes from the M6. What’s more, it’s just 15 minutes from the airport and is served by seven frequent bus routes.

“Parking outside the city centre is inadequate.”

Manchester city centre does indeed offer ample parking – at a cost. Free parking opportunities in the city centre are practically non-existent – there are many car parks to choose from, but they’re certainly not cheap.

However, choose an office to rent in a specially-designed business park and chances are parking will be easier for staff and visitors. And with many business parks – including Carrington – free parking is included in your agreement, saving you money.

“I need to network with other businesses – I can’t do that outside the city centre.”

This certainly isn’t true! More and more businesses are choosing offices to rent in business parks on city centre outskirts, leading to a real sense of community and increased networking opportunities.

Carrington Business Park hold a monthly networking event, but even a chance meeting in the on-site canteen could develop into a lucrative business opportunity – you wouldn’t get that by renting a self-contained office in central Manchester.

These are just some of the reasons why, when it comes to renting an office in Manchester, Carrington Business Park is well worth a look. It’s easy to access, with ample free parking and fantastic networking opportunities. On-site catering is available, and all offices are on short-term agreements – so you won’t be tied in any longer than you want to be.
