In today’s Mumbai, a convenient location may not be the heart of the city due. The city centre is overcrowded, the traffic congestion is only on the rise, the commuting time is very high, parking problem and the overall expenses are high.
More and more people are opting for spaces in New Mumbai or Navi Mumbai,CBD Belapur, Panvel, Seawoods, Sanpada to get the benefits of convenient commuting, less congestion, affordable rents and better availability of manpower.
The amount of floor space you require has to be clear at the outset. You can rent that amount of bare space and get it furnished or alternatively, you can get an empty flat to set up your office. This will be a convenient option because:
- You don’t have to divide your office space with cubicles
- More secured and comes with better power backup
- A dedicated washroom and pantry space
If you can get a well lighted and well ventilated office you can save on your electricity bills as there will be less work for your electric lights and air-conditioners.
A workable washroom
A washroom is very important when you are spending a majority of your waking hours in your office space. Getting a private washroom is the best option but in case you have to share one, try to have as few takers as possible, otherwise hygiene becomes a major problem.
Adequate parking space
You will need enough parking spaces for your private vehicles and for those of your visitors. Parking along the kerbs and on streets may be a common feature in Indian metros but for your office needs that will not be a good solution. Otherwise, you may have to run around for every little skirmish and lose valuable working time and peace of mind.
When you have just begun or are planning to begin, lavishing your money on office rent will not be judicious. Go for a smaller space, if required, but don’t compromise on the quality.
Uninterrupted power supply and power backup
Electricity is essential for your office work. An area with frequent power cuts will be a hindrance. However, if all other factors are conducive, you can always arrange for a good inverter or generator to give you adequate backup.
Although this may apparently seem a trivial point, this is important. Even if you bring your lunch from home, your employees may not do so. You may even want to serve a cup of tea or coffee to your visitor from the local stalls. Dependable lunch services are also available. Ask a local for details.
Keeping these points in mind you can rent an effective office space in Mumbai to give your career a head start.
