You’ve decided you want to find new warehouse space for your business but where to start looking? Our top three places you are most likely to find your space are:
The great thing about the internet is that there are a number of useful websites with all your options in one place. Some big residential sites with commercial portals to consider are rightmove.com, primelocation.com and zoopla.com. We also recommend looking at the following commercial property specialists such as Realla, EG Property Link, Novaloca and Move Hut.
When approaching letting agents, we recommend you taking a drive around the area you wish to locate your business to see which local agents have the most boards up. Remember that different agents will dominate different areas, so be sure to get in touch with the best agent for your chosen area. One thing to consider, however, is that, while agents are a useful free resource for market information, they are paid by the landlord and may not be impartial.
DIRECT TO THE LANDLORD
It is more common nowadays to find landlords marketing their own space and handling their own leasing negotiations. Nobody knows their buildings better than the owners, so you may find the information you receive from them is more detailed.
