You can read more about our history in our company profile page and the service we provide on our about us page.
Are you really a free service?
For tenants looking for office space, our service is 100% free from start to finish. We are able to offer this service because of the unique way we are funded by the office providers.
How can you help me in my office search?
You can either search our website to find offices or call us now on 02038197020. One of our trained advisors will then consult with you over the office space you require and advise on suitable rental options, inform you of relevant pricing and provide you with an interactive search report to view details and even arrange appointments on your behalf.
Can you find an office for me?
Absolutely. We can search our database and handpick suitable offices for you, free of charge.
How do I search office space on your site?
Enter the name of the area or the postcode you are looking for space inside the white search bar at the top of the page, or the search bar on our homepage, and press ‘enter’. From there, you can browse and filter offices to your specification.
What types of workspace do you market?
We typically market Serviced Office Space which can be presented as private offices or co-working deskspace.
What are serviced offices?
Serviced Offices (also known as Business Centres, Executive Suites or Furnished Offices) offer an immediate solution to all your office space needs. Read more on our serviced offices page.
What are Coworking offices?
Coworking (Shared offices) are open plan offices where individuals or medium sized companies can rent a desk in a shared environment with other like-minded freelancers.
Are serviced offices more expensive than leasing a conventional commercial property?
Many businesses would save a lot of time and money if they were to use Serviced Offices in our London and UK locations. Depending on the size of the company and specification required, offices have been known to cost anything from £5000 - £100,000 to set up with the correct infrastructure. In addition, the time and money lost in managing a traditional office is also overlooked and can cause a business many problems along the way. With a Serviced Office, all of this cost and hassle is usually saved, making it a more viable option for businesses.
Can I furnish a serviced office space with my own furniture and IT systems?
Typically speaking, a Serviced Office provides you with a readymade furnished and equipped solution; however that model has become more flexible throughout the years meaning most of our centres allow you to bring in your own I.T. and furniture.
What sizes of offices do you market?
We market anything from 1 co-working desk to a whole building that can accommodate 100’s. If you have a large requirement, get in touch with us now and we can point you in the right direction. We are aware of buildings as they are being acquired/purchased by landlords and can very often get you through the doors before they go to market.
How much space do I need?
Typically speaking, it is normal to allocate 50 square feet to 60 square feet per person. This changes slightly based on the size of space. So for a 1 person office, we would advise a minimum of 100 sq ft, but if you were looking for an office for 50 people, we advise 30 to 40 square foot per person.
We are looking for a specific style of office. How can you help?
We are looking for a specific style of office. How can you help?
I have a specified requirement i.e. Pets/treatment centre?
Some of our offices are pet friendly and we can tell you which ones. With respect to treatment centres, providing the treatment is non-invasive (doesn’t penetrate the skin), then we have office providers who would accommodate your business.
What should I expect in my workspace?
Your workspace should include (can be taken out if specified) furniture, internet, phones all ready and working. We sometimes refer to this type of office as a ‘plug and play’ office.
Why do some of the offices you market not display pricing?
Some providers prefer us not to market their prices publicly whilst others haven’t updated us with pricing. Call us and we will provide you with guidance on any pricing you need.
What does the monthly rental price of an office include?
The typical monthly rental price includes rent, rates, service charge, utilities, furniture, use of communal facilities, flexibility to move office and other things dependent upon the office provider.
How up-to-date are your listings?
We are adding and removing locations every day, so we would like to think our database is very much up to date.
What should I expect to happen after I have contacted you about my commercial property needs?
We will discuss your office space requirements with you, assess your needs, identify the most suitable options and then present you with a selection of offices to rent. Should you have an urgent requirement and want to arrange to view offices immediately, we can also arrange those for you. Our consultants have in-depth knowledge of the offices we marker. It is nearly impossible for a new client to fully understand the most suitable options from behind the computer, so it is advisable to allow a consultant at FreeOfficeFinder to advise and handpick the most suitable offices for you to go out and view. This will allow you to gain a first-hand experience of the offices, their prices and offerings
Will my details ever be given or sold to any other company?
Client information is never given or sold to any third party and is kept strictly for the use of FreeOfficeFinder. Unless you have specified otherwise, and in order to ensure that we don't waste your time showing unsuitable offices, we consult with the office providers using the basic details of your office search in order for them to update us with suitable office space - the availability of which can change on a daily basis. We are GDPR compliant however, should you have any questions, please contact us if you have any preferences in how we handle your information prior to starting your search with us.
