When it comes to looking at office to rent Mitcham, it is very important that you find the right space for your business needs. It also has to work for you and your employees, giving them a nice place to work from and being easy to commute to.
Within this article we are going to talk you through how to find the right office to rent Mitcham, going into detail on all the things you need to think about before signing on the dotted line.
Let’s get started.
Understanding Your Business Requirements
To begin your search for an office to rent Mitcham, you first need to think about your business needs and consider the nature of your business. Different businesses need different types of office environments i.e creative businesses will need a creative office space, whereas an accountants may need a more traditional, formal office.
You also need to think about your employees – how many you currently have and/or how many you plan to have in the near future. This will allow you to have an estimate on the amount of space you need but you will also need to consider your employees needs. Going for an open plan office may suit you but may be an unsuitable working environment for your employees. Many people work best in a quiet, solitary environment so you will need to speak with your employees or ask for anonymous feedback. You do not want a new office to cost you your best employees.
Thinking about these elements and speaking with your employees will allow you to gauge how much space you need and what type of office will work best for you and your team.
Identifying the Ideal Location
Next, you must think about what would be the ideal location for you and your employees. Your new office in Mitcham must be easily accessible for yourself, your team and any clients or customers that may need to come into the office. You will want to think about the amount of parking you may need and also consider the proximity to transport links.
You will also want to look for offices with local amenities and services nearby such as cafes, supermarkets and banks. These will all make you and your employees’ working day much easier as you will be able to grab food or run errands in your lunch break.

Budgeting for Your Office Space
Once you have figured out how much space you need and the ideal location of your office to rent Mitcham, you next need to think about your budget.
Offices to rent Mitcham can start as low as £12.00 per square foot but they can also go all the way up to £2000+ per square foot. Along with taking into account the rental price, you also need to consider utilities, cleaning and maintenance costs.

Exploring Different Types of Office Spaces
With your budget in mind, you can begin exploring the different types of office spaces available to rent in Mitcham. Within this section we are going to look at the advantages and disadvantages of certain types of offices to help you make your decision.
Traditional Office Space
There is the traditional office space, which is a private commercial space, just for you and your team to work in.
The advantages of this type of office are that the space will be just for your business so you are able to set it up how you want it and have everything related to your business under one roof. Having a private office space will also allow for a high level of data security as no one other than you and your team will be able to access the office.
You will have fewer distractions, you and your team will be able to develop a good workplace bond and, with traditional offices, you will get personalised parking spaces.
The disadvantages of this type of offices is that they often come with a long-term lease, typically three to five years, and once the lease is signed, you cannot break the lease and move into a different office space. This can restrict the decisions you want to make for your business and hinder your business growth.
There can also be a lack of flexibility for employees which could lead to their personal lives and work lives blurring into one, causing stress and poor productivity. Also, you will be in charge of maintenance costs for things such as meeting rooms, desks, computers, laptops etc. This will be a large investment, particularly if you are a small or start-up business.
Next, we have managed or serviced offices, like what we offer at many of our Cinch Self Storage stores including Mitcham.
The advantages of these types of offices are that they offer flexibility and scalability, come fully furnished and equipped with amenities such as heating, lighting, electricity, office furniture and WI-FI. Also, they offer networking opportunities with your fellow local business owners.
The disadvantages of these types of offices are that, within some managed offices, you cannot add any business branding so they may lack the personal touch that some businesses like. Also, there can be a lack of privacy because within some managed offices you may have to share a space.
At Cinch Self Storage Mitcham you will get all the advantages – flexibility, scalability, all the utilities and furniture included and you will get to meet many of your fellow local business owners. When it comes to the disadvantages, the office space you rent will be used by only you and your team. Our offices are contained, with doors, so you will have a good level of privacy. Also, we are happy for you to add your business branding to the office and make it look exactly how you want it to.
