Workbench Serviced & Virtual Offices | Cardiff

How to choose a serviced office that is right for your business?

What is a serviced office?

A serviced office is the kind of office that is fully equipped and ready to move your business contents into whenever is right for you. It is run by a third-party provider and includes services such as shared break-out areas, a kitchen, toilets, showers, meeting rooms, etc.

They are a flexible and cost-friendly alternative to a long-term lease, with no need to worry about office maintenance. What is a key concern, though, is choosing the right one for your business and its needs.



A key factor to consider when deciding on where your company’s home will be is how flexible the terms of the lease are. At Workbench, tenants receive a short-term agreement of just 2 months’ notice, meaning it is less of a commitment than taking out a long-term lease of 12+ months.


Another element to deliberate over is the location of your serviced office. For instance, Workbench is a central location based in a quiet and accessible business park just off Ocean Way, Cardiff. Having a central address for your business, especially being a start-up or small company, is essential for accessibility and networking, and Workbench can offer you just that!



One of the biggest worries of a start-up business can be the cost of renting an office space, which is why a serviced office tends to be the safer and more appealing option. Workbench prices are very competitive, and our serviced offices begin from just £194 per month, with the option to co-work and hire a serviced desk being just £20 a day and/or £165 per month. Parking is also free at Workbench, and we have over 50 spaces available!

Added Benefits 

Most serviced offices will offer a package with incentives and added benefits to having a serviced office with their company, and this can range from free parking to security and cleaning services. 

At Workbench, we pride ourselves in being a flexible and hassle-free company, as well as a sociable bunch who like to meet new people and network with other businesses within the offices. This alone is what stands us out from the rest, as we enjoy being a community rather than acquaintances who pass each other in the corridor.
