Why You Should Rent Over Buying Commercial Property
If you are looking for somewhere to locate your business one of the first things you will need to consider is whether or not to buy your own office space. There’s no doubt that buying can be a good choice – if you’re a big business with a healthy balance sheet – but we think that most businesses are better off renting.
New small businesses need to grow or die. It’s a simple fact of business. So if you’re looking for offices to rent in Derby you should be looking for a location that allows you to grow. This year you have thirty employees. What do you do in five years time when it’s a hundred? If you’re renting, adding extra desks is as simple as signing a new contract. Chances are you won’t even need to reprint your letterheads!
Do you know how you keep intending to get that fence fixed or mow the lawn at home? Well, imagine having to worry about that at work too! If you rent an office from RTC all the building and site maintenance is included. We also include 24 hours, 7 days a week security staff, car parking, shared reception areas and (a pretty unusual plus) utilities and heating. There’s even an on-site staff restaurant which runs a daily trolley service serving sandwiches and snacks. Isn’t that better than everybody heading to the nearest pub for lunch?
Buying your own offices means committing to a location. You might find somewhere with great road connections but then land a contract that means regular visits to and from London (and we all know that’s better done on the train).
As a place to do business Derby is amazingly well-connected. It has a mainline train station, international airport and easy access to the trunk road network. And within Derby, you’d be hard-pressed to find a better location than we offer. We’re less than half-a-mile from the station with it’s direct connections to London, Birmingham, Manchester and beyond.
Also included in your office rent is access to our facilities management team. They will endeavour to assist with any queries you may have and arrange for repairs. They can also help you to organise meetings and conferences, booking out rooms as you need them (so you’re not paying for empty space) and liaising with caterers.
