A great location

These contacts with neighbouring businesses can provide a great source of sales and help your business to grow and succeed.

On-site facilities

When looking at office space, understand what the whole package includes. Are there catering facilities onsite for example where you can take clients for lunch?

All these elements make your business look well-established and efficient to clients and suppliers. They also make staff feel valued and comfortable.

Flexible Office Space
It makes sense to look for office space that allows your business to upsize or downsize as required. This limits disruption and provides continuity no matter how your business develops.

5 Alternative Reasons to Rent an Office in Manchester

There are many great reasons to look for an office to rent in Manchester. It’s relatively central, cheaper than London, has excellent transport links, and to many it’s considered England’s “second city” (or third after Birmingham, perhaps. But we prefer Manchester.)

But these aren’t the only reasons to rent an office in Manchester…

Carrington Business Park (www.carringtonbusinesspark.co.uk) is based in Carrington, near Trafford, on the outskirts of Manchester. They provide offices for rent and a whole host of other services for small to medium-sized businesses.

It’s also home to many talented creative agencies, bands and artists today. If you’re a creative, or you’re just looking to find an office to rent in an area you’ll find inspiring, Manchester is the place to be.

Nowhere is cooler than Manchester (probably)

From the effortless class of George Best (arguably the finest footballer Manchester United ever saw) through to the 90s Britpop swagger of Oasis, Manchester is always at the cutting edge of cool. If your business is one that could benefit from the cool cachet of a Manchester address, it’s well worth considering renting your office in Manchester.

Manchester is the best place to live – official

For the second year running, in 2013 Manchester was voted the best UK city to live in an extensive worldwide survey. And all the things that make it such a great place to live also make it a fantastic place to work.

Workshop & Training Facilities in Manchester – For When Your Office Just Won’t Do

The office you rent may be perfect for your day-to-day business. But every now and then, you’ll need facilities that your office simply doesn’t have. So where can you go?

If you’re based in or around Manchester, Carrington Business Park (www.carringtonbusinesspark.co.uk) is ideal. They have a wide range of facilities available that can be adapted perfectly for workshop and training use on flexible rental agreements – perfect for short-term projects.

Here are just a few of reasons why you might choose to take advantage of Carrington’s workshop and training facilities:

Researching, developing and manufacturing new products

If you’re developing a new product, you’ll want to ensure it’s rigorously tested in laboratory conditions – but chances are your office doesn’t have an on-site lab! Carrington can provide the ideal space for a lab for you, whether carrying out research and development into new products or manufacturing delicate, intricate electrical components.

Taking powerful commercial and product photography

If you’re producing photography for marketing purposes, not only do you need a professional photographer, you’ll also need a room with the right space and lighting to get the best possible photos – your boardroom isn’t going to cut it. Carrington’s open, spacious facilities can be adapted to provide you with the ideal studio conditions for striking, high-quality commercial photography.

Training your staff – free from distraction

If you need to hold training sessions for your team, your office is not the best place to do it. There are too many distractions, you may not have a room that’s the right size or shape, and if people are travelling from far and wide, your office may be hard to reach. Carrington can help, with their bespoke, reconfigurable training rooms – ideal whether training fewer than 20 or over 100.

But why choose Carrington Business Park for your workshops and training rooms?

Based on Manchester’s outskirts, Carrington Business Park easy to reach whether travelling by car, public transport, or even by plane, with the motorway network and airport close by.

Five Signs It’s Time to Rent an Office in Manchester

So, you’ve set up a business operating from your home – and it’s going well. You’ve never been busier and you feel you may be ready to expand. Is it finally time to move the business out of your home and rent your first office?

If so, and you’re based in or near Manchester, Carrington Business Park (www.carringtonbusinesspark.co.uk) can help you. They have a wide range of offices to rent on the outskirts of Manchester, ideal for small and medium-sized businesses. Here are five signs that it’s finally time to look for an office to rent…

1. It’s not just you anymore

If your business has expanded to the point where you’re taking on staff, working individually at separate locations doesn’t make for good team morale, and may impede the sharing and development of ideas. Working around your kitchen table with a team isn’t a realistic option, so if you’re big enough to have staff, you’re big enough to rent an office.

2. You need to keep work and play separate

Working from home leaves you all too open to distractions. It’s far too easy to treat yourself to more frequent, longer breaks, meaning that you’re not getting as much done as you should. Rent an office and you’ll focus more on work, increasing productivity – and profit.

3. Where do you meet your clients?

No matter what field you’re in, you’ll need to meet with clients regularly. While you may be able to meet at their premises, this involves taking time out of your day to travel – and that means there’s time when your work’s not getting done. Avoid this by renting an office with ample meeting rooms.

4. It’s time to network – but how, where and with whom?

If you’re new to business, you may not have built up a large contacts book yet. Work from home and networking opportunities will be hard to come by. However, find an office to rent in a business park such as Carrington, and you’ll find plenty of lucrative networking opportunities with fellow business owners.

5. Look like the professional you are

Rightly or wrongly, potential business partners, clients or employees may be wary of a business run out of your home. Rent an office and your business instantly appears more professional, respectable and trustworthy.

If you think it’s time to take the plunge and rent an office in Manchester, speak to Carrington Business Park. They’re conveniently located within easy reach of Manchester city centre – and unlike city centre offices, free parking is included.

Best of all, Carrington’s offices are all on short-term rental agreements. If you decide an office isn’t right for you after all – or you grow quickly and need more space – their flexible deals mean you won’t be tied in to your rented office any longer than you want to be.

So why not find out more about Carrington’s offices to rent in Manchester by visiting www.carringtonbusinesspark.co.uk?
