The perfect office space for your business can be hard to come by – especially when your company is changing and expanding all the time.

It's rare that an SME will stay in the same building for a long period and moving into a new office space can offer a wealth of opportunity. Here are five signs you are ready for an office move…

1. You want to hire more staff

Whether you’ve already noticed that your office is becoming a little overcrowded or you’re just predetermining a significant staff expansion, you’ll need to find a new office space. Judging whether there will be enough workstations and storage space to accommodate more staff is essential.

2. You want to appear more professional

If you've a lot of clients dropping by the office, you want to make sure you're giving them the right impression of your business. On top of that, you also want to appeal to potential employees, too, so having a presentable office space is crucial.

If you’re not visited regularly by clients, nor are you looking to hire more employees, but you’re concerned about having a residential company address, virtual offices may be the ideal option for you. Virtual office packages include a range of services from mail collection and forwarding to personalised call answering. Find more information about virtual offices here.

3. Commute time is too long

Are you located a long way from the majority of your clients, employees or suppliers? Your office should be easily accessible by public transport – where is the nearest train/tube station? Are there car parking facilities at your office?

4. You can’t focus

Feeling uninspired by your current working space? It might be time for a change of scenery. A working environment that helps you stay productive is crucial for your business – particularly if the nature of your business is fast-paced.

5. Your finances are healthy

Moving offices is an expense, of course. And many office leases tend to require at least a 12-month commitment, so you need to factor this in before you decide to move to a new space. If you're after a space that doesn't come with a lengthy lease, then coworking office spaces would work better for you.
