Happy New Year! If your resolution is a change of scene, then we’re on hand to help you consider your options. In this post we cover some of the advantages in securing a new, flexible business premises.
We explore what effect this change might have on your business and importantly, on the outlook and motivation of your workforce.
This isn’t meant to be an exhaustive list, but it should flag up if a move would be good. Ask yourself, and be honest, are you experiencing one or more of these factors:
If any of these are relevant, then you need to move, but when would be a good time to make that move?
Changing premises early on in the calendar year has the advantage of giving you a natural fresh start and run up to the new year. It would be particularly timely if the following factors were also present:
This often is the trigger for a lot of tenants to begin the process of looking around for a new, better or bigger base. Naturally, its always preferable to start this process in good time, so you have as much wriggle room as possible when negotiating a new lease (either with your old landlord, or if you do decide to move – with prospective landlords).
Longer leases generally mean a cheaper overall rent, but sometimes companies prefer more flexibility in return for a slightly higher premium.
Or you could save yourself considerable time and choose Flexspace. We offer flexible business premises with the added advantage of a significant introductory discount (sometimes as much as up to 3 months’ free). Go on, search for a new office or workshop, we have a wide range of locations and sizes.
That can range from broadly positive changes like a period of rapid and sustained growth through to challenging periods where an active phase of downsizing is required.
During these times, as your business premises is one of your highest overheads (with perhaps the exception of payroll), it makes sense that this business critical factor is reviewed and revisited on a regular basis.
There are obvious costs (time and money) of going through a premises move. And unsurprising, at the top of this list needs to be placed the financial cost of moving.
Not only that, what is the true cost of this decision in terms of everyone’s time, the costs of moving and the set up costs of setting up your company within a new premises.
All of the above needs to be considered carefully.

Flexspace have helped me turn my little dream into a profitable reality! Being a small business owner looking for premises can sometimes be daunting but Loraine and the Flexspace team helped me with every step in finding the perfect solution for my business and I couldn’t be more grateful.
The team go above and beyond to look after their tenants and nothing is every too much trouble. Premises are clean, well maintained and I always feel extremely safe when I’m at work even on those dark winter nights! I have highly recommended Flexspace to fellow business owners – a hidden gem in Peterborough!
Our offices in Blackpool are easily accessible for the people we support, some of whom are in wheelchairs, there is a ramp to the entrance door and disabled facilities. Our offices are nicely decorated, comfortable and affordable.
Our Area Manager is very helpful and readily available should we have any queries or problems. The public areas are kept clean, safe and presentable. She goes over and above the call of duty for the clients.
I have enjoyed renting from Flexspace for the last 3 years and hopefully will be there for a good few years to come. Found the staff very helpful and easy to get on with.
Excellent service, the Centre team are happy to assist with meeting rooms at short notice. They ensure that repairs are carried out quickly. I needed several new sockets in my room and these were provided very quickly with no inconvenience to myself.
The staff are friendly, professional and knowledgeable and nothing is ever a problem.
Flexspace Dunfermline has had a big impact on the growth of my business over the last 3 years. Offering the ability to offer in-house training to clients with the use of the meeting room facilities. The team always ensure that the rooms are set up to the exact requirements I need to deliver the training to my clients. From equipment set up to the supply of refreshments to my delegates.
Having a dedicated team onsite that are always on hand to assist with anything from reception to administration is a real benefit to my business. The staff are always very approachable and nothing is ever too much for them when I ask for their assistance.
RDM Group has occupied buildings on the Bilton Industrial Estate for over 22 years and we have seen many owners in our time. In 2007 ‘Flexspace’ acquired the estate and through their resident manager, we have seen a dramatic improvement in the overall operation of the estate together with a continual investment and improvement program into the buildings, security and facilities which makes the estate an extremely good place for our company to be located.
Big thanks to you and Alan for your efficient handling of the whole process.
Many thanks for your support in our move into new office space, everything has been really smooth and easy even down to ensuring locks were changed and secure.
The facilities are excellent and spotlessly clean throughout and it’s so helpful for us to have access to additional rooms for booking for training events when we need it. We are so glad we made the move into a really pleasant and well maintained working environment.
