Choosing shared office space means more than just having the flexible space your business needs to operate, it means having the daily supplies you need as well.
Although renting temporary office space can encompass many different scenarios, at Metro Offices, you get much more than a room in which to do business.
Make no mistake, we do offer plenty of space — offices, conference rooms, shared work spaces and more. But sometimes when you lease temporary office space, all you get is a spot at a long table to set up your laptop, or a barren office with little more than a desk and a chair.
Supplies for Your Rented Office Space
Metro Offices fully stocks our shared office space. You not only have access to computers, printers and copy machines, but you also get all the little things like staplers, paper clips and sticky notes.
Fully stocking a working office takes planning, time and money. Oftentimes it’s hard to even know what you'll need. Sure, you need computer paper, but what kind? You may see a dozen kinds at your local office supply store. You don’t want to pay more than you have to, but you don’t want low-quality paper that will bring your company embarrassment when you have to send out invoices or correspondence.
Staples lists nine items you need to set up your first office. These are good suggestions, but they are quite basic, and you'll need to tailor them to your business’ needs. Conversely, if you take a look at this list of supplies recommended by Bizfluent, you may quickly feel overwhelmed. The list includes everything from a first aid kit to whiteboards.
Imagine that you had the time to make a list of everything you need and to go to the store and get it. The chances are great that the store won’t have everything on the list, or that you will forget some items, or that you will buy the wrong size, or you won’t buy items that you didn’t realize you needed until it was too late.
Temporary Office Space, Permanent Supplies
When you rent temporary office space from a company such as Metro Offices, you can rest assured that if you need it, we have it. In this digital age we don’t staple papers as often as we used to. So you might not even think to buy a stapler. If you did buy one, you might be surprised at how they’ve changed over the years and how complicated they have become. You will likely be further challenged by finding the correct staples to fit in your stapler, and how to even get them in.
They may seem small, but items like highlighters, fasteners, folders, envelopes, and stamps can combine to make or break a business. If you never have what you need and are constantly running out to get it, you have less time to put into your business and your bottom line takes a hit. It’s just this kind of situation that can cause stress, which can impact your performance and therefore your business and even your health.
