More up-to-date than ever: temporary offices

An office ready for immediate use in the best location, whenever and for as long as you need it: The concept of temporary offices is right on target. A temporary office offers a quiet retreat and allows the necessary distance to other people, which has become even more valuable in times of Corona. Temporary offices offer complete flexibility, service and optimal working conditions. In this blog post I will explain the advantages of renting an office in a business centre on a temporary basis compared to other office concepts, fixed rentals or the purchase of office space.

Corona pandemic and the temporary office

The Corona period has shown many of us how important it is to have a place where we can work undisturbed. In the home office, the family is noisy and concentration and self-motivation often fall by the wayside. In coworking spaces it is difficult to keep your distance and the risk of infection is increased.

What does a temporary office offer?

With a temporary office you have everything you need to start working immediately. You have the peace and quiet of a locked room, a functional office fully equipped with all the furniture and necessary technology, with your own extension and optional services. In addition, you can book additional offices or meeting and conference rooms at any time if required. The reception desk is always manned during regular opening hours, so you can be reached easily. Access to the offices is even granted 24/7. This means you are free to decide at what time of day you would like to work. The stylish atmosphere you will find in modern business centres will leave a positive impression on your customers, partners and business contacts. This is not least due to the prestigious address in a metropolis that not only looks good on letterhead, but is also google- and visitable.

With a temporary office, you decide for yourself how long and in what size you would like to rent the office space, and you can revise this decision at any time and change it according to your needs. The choice ranges from small and therefore also inexpensive individual offices and larger executive offices to team offices and combinations. Service contracts with business centres offering temporary offices can be concluded for a few hours, one or several days, weeks, months or years. The notice periods for temporary offices are short, allowing for the shortest possible response times.

Who is a temporary office suitable for?

A temporary office is particularly worthwhile for freelancers, small businesses, founders and start-ups. Freelancers enjoy the comfort and peace and quiet, while start-ups can find out how much space they will need in the future. Project teams or companies looking for an adequate interim rental solution due to a move, renovation, seasonal staff growth or for opening up a new market will also find an ideal, flexible and uncomplicated solution in a temporary office. And for business travellers, a temporary office is a far better working environment than a hotel desk with slow WLAN. A temporary office also allows you to receive customers, partners and business contacts in style in a prestigious environment.

Cost control included

Especially for small companies, solo self-employed and start-ups, the cost factor is often decisive. Too many partly incalculable fixed costs can thwart promising business plans. Loans for the initial investment of deposits, furniture and technical equipment as well as rental costs are risk factors. All of this can be quickly reduced if necessary by renting a smaller office or the business centre on a weekly or daily basis, even temporarily as a company address.

Postal service, own extension number, shared use of equipment such as printers and the like and, if desired, an address sign at the entrance are already included in the rent for temporary offices. Further services, which usually include a telephone service and further secretarial work by specialists in the name of your company, can be booked in a cost-transparent manner if required. You have full cost control at all times.

Temporary office vs. home office vs. coworking spaces

As mentioned above, many people have just experienced what it is like to work in a home office during the Corona crisis and have certainly encountered all sorts of stumbling blocks in the form of roommates and other disruptive factors. Even without the corona pandemic, home office work was a great challenge for freelancers and founders. Without a secluded place that is only used for work, concentration and creativity are often difficult. Also, people do not like to receive customers and business partners at home. In terms of working conditions, the temporary office is therefore a clear winner. One point is deducted only for the costs. Here, the home office is logically in the lead.

Coworking spaces in a business centre are cheaper and offer the same services, but do not offer the privacy and privacy of a lockable office. With a coworking space, you share a larger office with other tenants. Although these are usually not open plan offices, but rather team offices, noise cannot be avoided when all tenants are present. This may inspire some creative people, but many self-employed people are more likely to be distracted and disturbed. Also, the currently desirable personal distance cannot always be guaranteed in coworking, which is a minus point in pandemic times, which does not exist in temporary offices.
