Post-COVID-19: 4 Tips For Choosing A New Workspace
The COVID-19 pandemic has hit many businesses hard – from the airline industry up to the leisure sector. Even SMEs (Small Medium Enterprises) and MNCs (Multinational Corporations) are gradually being affected by the economic crisis as a result of the virus. However, over time, we will eventually get past the pandemic and be able to return back to our normal lives.
As such, to stay at the top of the game and return to the workforce easily – we must always stay prepared by taking extra steps first. One way to do so is by making the right workspace selection. Particularly, it would be ideal to go for a cheap small office space for rent considering that you would have only begun operations and will need to adjust to the ever-changing business trends or consumer needs after the pandemic.
Now, let us look into the specific factors one should take note of when searching for a new workspace for your business.
Go through the lease terms and conditions
Certain storage and workspace companies may offer spaces with hidden charges – which is why it is crucial to get a clear look at the lease terms and conditions before confirming your choice of space. Don’t rush into signing the lease document and discuss the facilities or perks you can enjoy together with the staff – that way, you can get the most out of your rented space.
At Work+Store, we don’t just offer flexible lease terms – but we also provide 24/7 camera surveillance and accessibility for all our spaces. Meanwhile, we offer a short lease period and the possibility of contract transfer to several other services or products within our building or even our parent company, LHN Group, which covers a broad variety – such as serviced apartments and offices, event location, and many others.
Layout and space
How big do you want your office to look like? If you do not have a huge staff and clientele load, then a small office for rent will do. However, in case you are looking for a large workspace or self-storage that can host a huge number, then you would need to look at alternative options.
We are able to provide a vast range of the cheapest self-storages as well as workspaces, where our storage rooms vary from 6 sqft to 730 sqft, while the range starts from 88 sqft onwards for our workspaces.
Make sure that you are getting value for money
What is the advantage of shifting to that new location? Is it prime and strategic? It is advisable that you ask yourself these questions before moving into the new premises. It should reflect value for money in every possible way. The goal of any start-up or company is to make as much as it can from the business.
For the reason of getting value for money, it’s important that you first choose the right location which boasts accessibility and convenience. At Work+Store, we have a wide range of location options where you can pick a space that matches your convenience best.

Assess your business first
Initially, you should look at who you are as a business before moving forward with any other aspects of a workspace. Knowing who you are will help you even to decide on the most preferable location. Do you require somewhere quiet or will your team be able to work in any environment? How should the interiors of your workspace be? Are you supposed to be next to the main central business district? These are questions you need to find answers to, as they will guide you in choosing the right location.
Besides understanding your business objectives, you should also have a business space which can help with your operations. We offer businesses with the cheapest self storages and workspaces whereby our workspaces can function as an ancillary office to help support other core business activities such as industrial or marketing tasks. Work+Store also provides essential facilities within our workspaces, specifically, a powerpoint, lighting, and air conditioning. By innovatively combining workspaces and self storages together, it brings forward a solution in which goods acquisition is much efficient while logistics processes are a lot smoother, altogether resulting in better customer service.
While these are indeed the basic steps for choosing a workspace, it’s important to keep them etched in your mind so you don’t lose sight of the important factors when it comes to selecting a space.
