27th July 2023
If you are on the hunt for your perfect office, it’s important that you consider whether you want to move into a traditional leased or serviced office space in Hull.

If you are on the hunt for your perfect office, it’s important that you consider whether you want to move into a traditional leased or serviced office space in Hull.

The main difference between the two is that a serviced office has a dedicated team who are in charge of overseeing the maintenance and operations of the building.

Within the building, there will be plenty of businesses all from varying industries which can be a great network opportunity. Along with this, you may find the building has communal kitchens and meeting spaces you can book.

As mentioned in the name, non-serviced offices (also known as traditional leased) don’t have this option so it’s your responsibility to carry out any upkeep or decor on the office space which can impact how quickly you can move in.

Below we have listed the pros and cons of a serviced and non-serviced office so you can make the best decision for your business needs! 

Serviced Office

One of the benefits of a serviced office is that the building is managed so you can rest assured that your office space and its contents are safe and secure. Furthermore, payments including utilities, cleaning, repairs, and IT services are generally included in the monthly payments.

On the other hand, a serviced office can be a limiting option when it comes to pushing your brand out there which is crucial for start-ups. Typically, the office building you work in will have its own name and brand. If the building has its branding displayed throughout, your company will generally fall under this which can impact the amount of exposure your business has.

In many serviced offices, you may find that they offer additional facilities on the site where the office is located. Not only are there communal kitchens and space, they sometimes have an onsite gym or cafe which can be convenient if you are looking to locate somewhere that is close to necessary amenities.

Non Serviced Office

An unserviced office will come as an empty room, whether you take this as a benefit or drawback is down to you! It does provide some creative freedom for you to design the space however you want. On the other hand, decorating can be a timely process which can be difficult if you want to get moving into your office space as soon as possible!

Leasing an office space offers more branding opportunities compared to a serviced office since you have the freedom to customise it according to your preferences, including the front. This is particularly advantageous for start-ups and customer-facing businesses as it allows for easy recognition.

If you have a larger or established business, a non-serviced property may be more suitable as it gives you complete control over your business premises. This can be a great opportunity to promote your company and gain more exposure.
