Virtual Business Address For Start Up Construction Company

This Week – A Virtual Business Address For A Start Up Construction Business

Starting a business is an exciting time for anyone, and something that we get a lot of pleasure from is working with those start up businesses and being able to share the excitement with them.  This week we started working with a new client who is in the process of starting his business and he wanted a virtual business address to give his business a local presence without giving out his home address.

The business owner has set up a construction business.  He’s worked in the family business for several years and has just decided to go it alone.  He wants to be seen very much as a local business and will use the virtual business address that we have, as well as the local telephone number we have provided him with as part of his marketing to show that he’s a local business and to help give him credibility.

He approached us right at the start of his start up process as he wanted to use the virtual mailing address as his registered address with Companies House when he set up the business, so he came in with his ID and started the virtual business address before then approaching Companies House to set up his business, enabling him to use this address from the outset.

Since the beginning of the week we have received mail from him which has included his certificate of incorporation as well as letters from suppliers from whom he is setting up trade accounts, as again, an established office address helps to give a professional impression.

As we always do with our business address clients, we have been letting him know as soon as mail has been arriving for him and he has been calling in to collect it.

It’s been great to see his enthusiasm every time he comes in and to hear about the work he is already picking up locally.  Seeing him pull up outside in his branded up van with his local mailing address and telephone number on and how proud he was when he got out of it brought a smile to my face as well.

Mail Redirection For Business

One thing is certain running a business – nothing ever stays the same.  Even with a solid business plan in place it is still difficult to judge how things will be in your business in the next five years, in fact for some early stage businesses it can be difficult to accurately predict the next 5 months.  For this reason, amongst others, many business owners will choose to use a mail redirection service.

Mail redirection, mail forwarding or mail handling as it is sometimes called is the process of sending mail on from one address to another.  So when it arrives at the business address, the mail forwarding company simply redirect the mail to you wherever you are based.

How does this benefit small business owners?  Quite simply it enables them to have a business address, which will be a real physical building, which to all intents and purposes as far as the outside world is concerned is the real address of the building.

This can be helpful to business owners, particularly in the early stages of business who may for instance start out working from home but want to keep their home address private, or for those who may be looking at moving premises, either to expand or to downsize.   Using a mail handling service means that even if the business moves premises the business address remains the same, which helps to give a stable and established impression to the outside world of the business.

It can be  a cost effective option to those wanting to keep costs down without appearing to be on too much of a tight budget to any clients and prospects as if it’s not necessary to be based in an office the business can be run from home.

A mail redirection service may often be used in conjunction with a telephone answering service to form a virtual office.  If you are thinking of using a virtual office service read our blog post on How to find the right virtual office for your business.
