industrial units to let

Are you interested in finding a commercial property for rent Derby-based? If so, one of the main factors you will obviously need to consider is the price. This is an area where a lot of business owners make errors. They sometimes find that they pay more for their industrial unit than planned, and this is because they failed to look at the bigger picture and take all of the costs into consideration. Don’t fret, however, as that is exactly what we are going to assist you within this post.

Rental costs

First and foremost, you need to consider the rental cost. One of the biggest mistakes business owners make is simply looking for the cheapest industrial units to let in Derby they can find. If you do this, you are almost certain to end up with an industrial unit that is not sufficient for your business. It is vital to address your needs and establish a budget; you can then search within this. If this is all new to you, take a look online to find out average prices for the sort of unit you need.

Potential extras

The rental cost is only the beginning. There are many other potential expenses that need to be taken into account. Firstly, you need to look at how the likes of security and maintenance is going to be funded. Are you expected to pay for this yourself? The best industrial units to let will come with a service fee, where this is all included, so that you know exactly what is outgoing every month, making it a lot easier to manage. You are then usually responsible for paying energy costs on top of this, but a lot of landlords will supply the Energy Performance Certificate so you can get an idea regarding average costs. However, we are different, as we include energy bills as part of the service charge, making it easier and more affordable for our tenants. You also need to enquire about repairs and insurance, as this will often be separate too.

At RTC Business Park, we believe in complete transparency, and this is why you will be provided with all fees upfront. We do charge a service fee, yet the latter includes all of the following – heating, electricity, buildings insurance, external building maintenance, mechanical maintenance, electrical maintenance, and manned security. Thus, unlike a lot of other landlords, you don’t need to worry about added extras, such as insurance premiums, making everything more expensive.
