Need office space? 5 reasons to rent a container office
Getting an office is a big step, but for many small businesses it can seem both prohibitively expensive and too much of a long-term commitment, especially if you’re not sure whether you really need an office.
Not convinced that a container office is right for you and your business? Take a look at the 5 reasons why it could be the solution you’re looking for.
A great flexible solution for small businesses
If you’re looking for an office which can be set up pretty much immediately, then a shipping container office just might be perfect for you. With 24/7 access and a wide range of sizes available to suit small and large businesses alike, we can have you up and running in no time.
And the great thing is, you can configure the container to work for you. So, for example, if you wanted half the area to store your stock, and the other to be your office space, you can set it up that way. And while our shipping containers do come unfurnished, if you do need any help sourcing furniture, our team will be more than happy to help.
A lot of people worry that renting a container office means you won’t have access to other services you need to run your business efficiently. At Jennings, we’re also thought about that and offer:
- an on-site courier service
- a shredding service
- the option to accept deliveries on your behalf.
So whether you’ve already got business storage with us and want to be close to your stock, are looking for a site office while you work nearby or simply want cheap office space, seriously consider a container office.
A surprisingly cost-effective option
If you’re planning on renting office space in London then you can expect to pay anything from £650 – £1,500 a month. And that’s before you factor in things like parking, congestion charge and all the money (and time!) you will spend on commuting.
Container offices on the other hand are a lot cheaper to rent, especially if they are located outside London. Coming complete with an electricity meter and internet connection, we offer a wide range of office space to rent suitable for businesses of all sizes. So whether you need a small office just for one person or require several hundred square feet of space, we’ll have a space suitable.
And as we offer fully flexible, 30 day rolling leases, if your business circumstances change, then you won’t have the worry of being tied into a long-term rental agreement.
Oh, and there is also ample free parking!
Access to additional business services
One thing that often puts people off hiring a container office is not wanting to hold meetings on-site.
At Jennings, we’ve got that sorted, as we are just a stone’s throw from Monument Park, a friendly Business Park offering a number of useful business amenities. Set in stunning surroundings which feature a lake, gardens and multiple picnic areas, you’ll have access to:
- Meetings rooms with flexible spaces for 2 – 50 people
- Business lounge with free wifi
- Cafe, gym, nursery and hairdresser
- Car valet and dry cleaning services
Avoid rush hour with a container office in the Oxfordshire countryside
One of the disadvantages of having an office slap bang in the centre of Oxford, or any other city for that matter, is you’ll have to contend with daily commuter traffic and all the stress that entails.
Located in Chalgrove, Oxfordshire, our container offices are just 10 minutes from the M40. In fact we are also just a 15 minute drive from Oxford, Wallingford and Thame. So, not only will you avoid the daily rush hour, but you’ll also be able to easily get to any business meetings in the local area or further afield.
Peace of mind that your office with be safe
If you have an office with computers, phones and other technology then you’ll want to be confident that it is safe and secure and not liable to be burgled overnight or when you’re away for a few days.
Security is one of the top priorities at our Oxford storage facility. All our portable offices are anti-vandal, and protected by:
- 8ft perimeter fence
- 24hr CCTV with emergency response
- Biometric fingerprint access on our electric gates.
