- Serviced Workspaces offer
more than just a mailbox.
Typically, someone looking for a mailbox to rent is an entrepreneur or small business owner simply looking for a way to keep their home address (where they actually work) hidden from their clients, and to separate business communication from home bills and catalogs. For many, picking up the mail is simply a chore – get in and get out as quickly as possible. The US Postal Service provides a variety of sized mailboxes to rent at very reasonable prices; and a P.O. Box, while not ideal, is an acceptable option for legitimate business. Also, it is common for a variety of package service companies and copy franchises (think The UPS Store & FedEx Office) to locate next to Post Office locations to provide convenient access for additional business services.
However, many small business owners do not realize that a Serviced Workspace Business (AKA Executive Suites or Office Business Centers) can also provide a monthly mailbox rental, but the myriad of additional advantages these locations provide may mean less chore and more business opportunity.

Where is your company going to be in two years? In five? Even if you have a very detailed business plan that outlines your future success step by step you can’t be exactly sure how your business will do and how many employees you’ll have until you walk the walk.
Is your office space prepared for your growth? Since you can’t say for sure how big the size of your business will be in the next few years, it’s impossible to tell how much office space you’ll need. What’s a business owner to do? Signing a multi-year lease for office space paints you into a corner. If your business doesn’t grow to meet the size of the space, you’ll be paying for space that you can’t use. Because you are locked into your lease, your overhead for your business will be greater than your need for space. Paying a lease that is too high for your needs can suck up capital that could be used to grow your business.
