Offices to rent in Manchester

As a leading provider of services for Manchester based businesses, Carrington Business Park (www.carringtonbusinesspark.co.uk) know all the do’s and don’ts of renting an office in Manchester. Here are nine questions you must answer before signing the agreement…

1. Is it easy to get to?
Is there good motorway access or public transport links? Is there ample parking nearby? Better still, is it free parking?

2. Is it on a flexible agreement?
How much notice do you have to give before leaving your office? Is it an office to rent on a short-term agreement?

3. Is it the right size for your business?
Is it small enough to be an efficient workplace, and large enough to hold all the people and equipment you need?

4. Can you access it at all hours?
You may occasionally need to access your rented office outside of standard working hours. Is it possible?

5. Is on-site security included?
On-site security may be included as part of your office rental agreement. It’s an essential service, so if it’s not included, there’s an extra expense you can’t avoid.

6. Are any bills included?
If not, renting an office could prove much more expensive than you might think.

7. Is there on-site catering near your rented office?
Or will you have to rely on disappointing packed lunches or expensive cafes?

8. Are there good networking opportunities?
Are there other businesses nearby to network with? Or will you be alone with limited opportunities?

9. Is there somewhere to “get away from it all”?
Is there anywhere to take a break, to recharge the batteries, and to clear the mind? It’s something we all need from time to time to work efficiently.

Choose a rented office from Carrington Business Park and the answer to all these questions is a resounding YES!

How to choose great office space in Manchester

When choosing your office space, there are many considerations to make. Whether you are relocating due to a change in business requirements or you are looking for offices for the first time it can be a daunting process and one that you need to get right to ensure the ongoing success of your company.

In addition to office space we also offer workshops and laboratory workspace with great transport access. Read on for our tips on choosing the best office space for your business:

A great location

Possibly one of the most important considerations you need to make is regarding location. Think carefully about your business needs. Who will need to access your business? Do you receive many deliveries? Will clients be visiting you onsite? How much parking will you need? At Carrington Business Park you have access to all the major motorways and would be situated just outside of Manchester one of the prime business communities in the North West. Being associated with such a prestigious location can give fledgling businesses credibility and provide larger businesses with a steady stream of talent and customers.

Networking opportunities

One of the major benefits to choosing office space on a close-knit business park is the networking opportunities available. Carrington Business Park is a community of like-minded business people that may become suppliers, customers, partners or useful contacts. 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? Is there a reception area with staff to greet your clients when they arrive? Are there adequate parking facilities for staff and customers? Are offices well-equipped and professionally maintained? 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.

At Carrington Business Park we can help with all your office requirements and have a professional team onsite to help with all your day-to-day requirements. Contact us today on 0161 776 4000 or info@cbpl.co.uk to find out how we could accommodate your business.
