Do you and your employees find it a challenge to work practically in the small business premises that you also first began business life in? Many times when people have been working in their small business endeavor for some years, they will they find themselves outgrowing their current premises often without even realizing until there is no available floor space in sight!
Is Personal Space an Issue?
The available space around employee’s desks needs to be practical. More so, because a cluttered and claustrophobic area can lead to hazards and result in accidents occurring during the working day. If you can’t really find any more space to place a desk for a new much-needed employee, you may want to think about upgrading to a more prominent building.
Is Storage Space Limited?
There is no getting away from the fact that businesses must by law keep hold of individual records, particularly financial ones, for many years after their year-end accounting dates. Therefore, there will always be a need for adequate storing space that is dry and safe. If you find yourself beginning to become overrun with masses of files and paperwork which you do not want to pay to put into storage, you could have outgrown your current space and need to look at new surroundings.
Are Your Current Premises Deteriorating?
Do you find that the maintenance of your current business premises is becoming too much to handle and expensive? Are the walls moldy, does the roof have a leak or would it merely cost an extortionate amount to redecorate and solve all the buildings problems? If this financial outlay is running into costs that you really can’t justify as a small business, this could be the final push that you need to look at starting anew somewhere less demanding.
