You need temporary office space for rent for a couple of weeks. While you aren’t looking for much other than a quiet place to work, it still pays to ask a few questions. These five will tell you if the rental offer you are considering is the right one.
Do I Have Access to Shared Office Equipment?
While most of your work will be managed using the devices that you bring along, there may still be the need to make use of a copy machine, file cabinets, or some other type of office equipment. Will there be additional charges for using the shared office equipment, or is the expense part of the basic rate? You’ll find that reputable shared office arrangements like those offered by AgileOffice rentals provide detailed information about what is included and what services and support are offered for additional fees.
Will a Receptionist Field My Calls?
When you seek temporary office space for rent, always ask if a receptionist is on hand to answer inbound calls, take messages if you are not available, and in general make sure the callers are cared for properly. Many shared office arrangements do include support from a receptionist as well as temporary voice mail support. This makes it easy to forward your business phone number to one of the numbers owned by your host and ensure calls are answered when you need to work uninterrupted.
How Fast is the Internet Connection?
Connection speed is a factor that you want to consider carefully. It’s not just about being able to access documents you have stored in the cloud or conduct searches quickly. You also want a stable and fast Internet connection that makes it possible to establish and conduct web conferences or even participate in one organized by a client.
While you are asking about the speed, find out what type of security measures are in place. If you will be exchanging proprietary data with a client, it’s important to use a secure Internet connection with a reasonable amount of security. You’ll find that AgileOffice rentals do provide secure connections and have software in place to prevent unauthorized parties from intercepting your data.
Do I Have Reserved Parking?
Depending on the type of office space for rent you seek, parking space may be part of the deal. This is true if the host happens to own a parking deck that’s attached to or is adjacent to the office building.
The space may be reserved specifically for occupants of the shared office space you are renting. At other times, you may receive a parking pass that allows you access to the parking deck. In that scenario, you would be free to use any unreserved parking space that’s available.
Can My Temporary Office Be Locked While I’m Away?
While the building is secure, what about the temporary office space that you’re renting? It’s not unusual for each office to come with private locks. They may be opened with key cards that are programmed and issued to you at the time the rental agreement is signed. They may also use key codes or even old-fashioned keys.
Along with the ability to lock your office door, there are also security guards who are on duty around the clock. Security cameras that monitor public areas, as well as the hallways outside individual offices, are also in place. Between the different security measures, you can rest assured that the temporary space is safe and secure.
