Choosing a suitable location for your business is crucial, whether you need to be in an out–of-town retail park, industrial estate or the middle of the city. The location is important as it can affect the suitability of a property for the business, its clients, customers or employees. What are the considerations?
Another consideration is what type of people will be using the property. What is the most important feature you need to address?
Whatever option taken, there will be advantages and disadvantages. Here we examine some of which should be taken into consideration.
Locating an office in a rural area might have the advantage of a relaxing work environment and be very cost effective, but could be inconvenient for staff and key suppliers making deliveries.
Locating a distribution warehouse in an urban area might have the advantage of being close to your client base and be very cost effective, but could be noisy for local residents. With transport movements day and night who wants the locals complaining!
On the other hand, being in the middle of an established city could be very convenient, but this may not be the most cost effective option.
Your agent will often have insight as to what is happening locally and have knowledge of developments that could affect your location or business.
