Moving Office

Whatever your reasons for moving offices it’s not a decision to be taken lightly. Careful choice of location can make or break your business. Here at RTC Business Park Derby, we’ve welcomed many businesses which means we’ve plenty of experience in office relocation and know some of the issues you might overlook when making your decision.

Service Costs

Offices rented in Derby, at RTC, are leased by floor area, as well as a small maintenance charge. You need to consider both when deciding if you can afford to move.

The service charge at RTC is pretty unusual in that as well as including all the usual stuff like security, maintenance and insurance it also includes your utilities. We’re able to negotiate as a bulk consumer which helps you keep your costs down.


One of the beauties of living in Derby is that it’s possible to work in a vibrant city but live in the peace of the Peak District. That, coupled with how easy it is to access from the major road networks, means you should consider if your short-listed premises offer sufficient parking for your staff and visitors.

RTC has 28 acres of landscaped grounds giving it a campus-like feel and allows us to be generous with our car-parking provision so “I couldn’t find a parking space” is unlikely to be heard in our offices.


There are two aspects you need to be aware of when considering security. How easy is it for unwanted visitors to gain access to your offices during the day and how secure is the site against burglary when the office is closed?

RTC offers 24-hour manned security and shared reception areas to keep your business secure – why not get in touch to find out more?


How easy are the offices on your short-list to reach? Can you get to London, Manchester or beyond with ease?

RTC is located barely a mile from Derby train station and less than 10 from the M1. Derby is also served by East Midlands Airport which offers international flights year-round.


You want your business to thrive but how quickly will you outgrow your potential new premises?

RTC offers a number of suites, ranging in size and on flexible leases. As your company grows so can your suite meaning the next time you need to do a full relocation could be a long time in the future?
