Who would a transportable studio unit be perfect for?
The options are really endless when it comes to what a transportable self contained unit can provide for business development and growth. From additional office space for small businesses run from the comfort of the back yard to more complex sites such as industrial areas and shut downs that are needing additional space for staff rooms or site manager offices. Our units can even be used as media rooms for onsite access to power and internet needs, great for large events.
In this blog we will run you through a few options that our portable units can help with when it comes to unlocking business potential and needs.
A start up business
Starting a new business is a major step. Finding a suitable property to lease, and actually landing the one you want, can be a very daunting and costly process. So why not rent a transportable unit with the help of HouseMe, and take all the stress away.
All you need is some spare land and power to get started.
Home office (without being in the home)
Maybe you're not a new business and you have been working out of your spare room for a while now. Perhaps this has been going well, but you are now finding that you need extra space as your spare room isn't quite big enough for you to work from, the store merchandise is starting to pile up, or you have client meetings to think about (walking clients through your home to the spare room isn't always ideal). A HouseMe studio unit can fix a lot of these struggles.
The great thing about having a transportable office space, that is separate to your home, is that it keeps your home and business life private from one another. You don't have to worry about frantically running around the house before every meeting checking to see if the kids belongings are sprawled across the lounge room floor, or if your breakfast dishes have been put away. You simply leave the house, head to your office, and start your day (the chores can wait until later).
A Transportable Unit doesn't have to be a home office. If you are an established business and are finding you are now needing more space you could rent a studio as an office, as a meeting room, or as a staff room with a kitchen and bathroom to boot. These self contained units are versatile and can accompany many business growth situations.
Maybe you have seasonal increases in demand where your workforce expands periodically. Instead of having permanent office space sitting empty for a lot of the year why not rent when you need it?
What are the benefits to renting a commercial office space?
One of the major benefits of renting a HouseMe studio for your business is that you will have lower overheads. If you plan to set up your studio at home or on your existing work site, then the land is already there and there's no need to pay those extra fees for commercial lease.
Rental of a HouseMe transportable unit can be for as short as 6 months, whereas many commercial leases are for 12 or 24 months. For more information on hire periods, zones, and delivery options, look here.
