Naylors are well known within Harborough for helping our customers to buy domestic properties, but did you know that we offer services for renting commercial properties as well? We know that it can be hard to locate the right premises for your business, and so here are our top tips…
Size and appearance of your premises matters
Generally, the smaller the premises the smaller the cost, however it’s important to think about how cramped conditions could hinder your business, as well as whether you are able to meet health and safety regulations. Smaller offices or shop units can make your business appear cluttered or disorganised, so think about how the premises may make you appear to potential clients or customers.
As a rule of thumb, it’s better to go for slightly too much room, leaving room for business expansion or simply extra storage.
Location, location, location
Remember that location is always key, whether you’re employing people to work at your premises, or are expecting customers to visit you. Choosing somewhere that is visible is ideal for those hoping to gain from the footfall of other businesses, whilst for those wanting to employ staff, a car park or good transport links are a necessity.
List your requirements
Think about what your requirements are before you start looking for premises, to save yourself both time and energy. Decide on things like whether you’d be happy to adapt or improve a premises, or whether they need to be in a condition that is ready to use, what your absolute highest budget is, what type of premises you’d be comfortable in, and stick to these criteria.
