It can be quite a hassle when you have to move office spaces. First of all, you need to wait until the lease at your old space comes to an end or else you’re going to lose out on your deposit. At the same time, you need to find a space that’s going to be available at the exact time when you move out of the old one. And once you’ve negotiated the rent on that and signed a lease, you’ll also have to move all your things from the old space to the new one. A much easier option is to trade office spaces with someone who has made their space available for such use.
A Barter System
The process of trading office spaces is reminiscent of when human beings didn’t have money and used to practice the barter system. For example, the cobbler would repair your shoes and take some of the fruit you grew as payment. One product or service was exchanged for another. Similarly, in this case, you’re trading office spaces.
Why Trade Spaces?
Trading spaces can come in useful in many situations, such as the following:
- Keeping Employees Happy. Let’s say you lease an office space in one area but you end up staffing your company with people who live in a different area. Moving your office space to that other area would be very helpful in keeping your employees happy, which would in turn increase your sales.
- Reaching Your Demographic. Maybe your company has just started producing a product which you want to sell to college students. Then wouldn’t it be helpful if your offices were located closer to a college campus?
- Collaborating. Maybe you’ve started working in collaboration with another company. So it would help you to be located closer to that company.
In each case, you may not want to break your lease and get a new place altogether. Instead, you can trade office spaces with someone else and make use of our trade facilitators to take care of all the nitty-gritty details.
Trading Furniture and Computers
In many cases, it will even be possible to leave behind all your furniture and computers and just take the ones that the other company has installed in their location. This makes things more convenient for both parties.
It might seem like the process of trading spaces will be complicated but in fact, it’s convenient because all the little details are managed by our trade facilitators. You just need to find a space that works for you.
