Renting an office can be a tricky business. When looking for offices to rent, there are so many things to take into account. Location, size, length of agreement – how do you know what’s right for you?

Here are their top “dos” and “don’ts” of finding offices to rent in Manchester…
Don’t… rent an office in Manchester city centre
Sure, Manchester’s city centre is a vibrant, exciting place to be. But it’s also expensive to rent offices here – not to mention difficult to get to by car.
Do… find somewhere that’s easy to access
Consider Manchester’s outskirts – easy to access and less expensive. What’s more, staff and clients travelling to you by car won’t have to navigate central Manchester’s confusing labyrinth of roads. And best of all, at a business park such as Carrington there’s even free parking.
Don’t… assume bigger is better
Small business? Rent a small office. Bigger offices can have a cold, impersonal atmosphere, and incur unnecessarily expensive heating and lighting costs.
Do... rent an office that’s the right size for you
When choosing your office to rent, consider the space you need for equipment and your team, and rent an office that’s the right size for it all. You can always move to bigger (or smaller) premises as and when you need to – which brings us to our next don’t…
Don’t... tie yourself into a long contract
In six months’ time your business could have transformed beyond all recognition, meaning you may need a much larger – or smaller – office. Not ideal if you’re tied into a 12-month contract.
Do… rent an office with a flexible agreement
So don’t be tied into a 12-month contract! Ensure you rent an office with a short-term agreement that you can leave with no more than one month’s notice.
Don’t… rent the first office you see
It can be tempting to jump right into the first office you see. But think carefully before signing that deal. Make sure you’ve visited a few offices before picking your office to rent.
Do… look for an office to rent with great added extras
One of the differentiators between a good office and a great office is the range of facilities offered. Do you have access to conference and training rooms? On-site catering? Free parking? Carrington Business Park has all this and more.
