Why a business address with Whitehill might make sense for you

Posted by admin on February 5, 2016

Given the rate that modern technology is developing, it's becoming both easier than ever to market and advertise your business online, and much more difficult to maintain the privacy you need. A variety of options will help: a business mobile that you can switch off, a bookkeeper to manage your accounts for you. Such options enable you to switch off when your work is done for the day, but what about keeping your home private?

Did you know: the address you register with Companies House is viewable by anyone who searches for your company online?   And that the address you use to register a web domain is also viewable by anyone who wants to find you?  Check out what others can see about you in our simple guide.

Why a professional address makes sensemailbox-22149_960_720.jpg

When you’re running or even setting up your own business, it can be tricky to keep home and work life separate. You don’t want to run the risk of a customer turning up at your doorstep, but you don’t want to spend thousands per year on running and maintaining a physical office. And although a London address sounds prestigious, what good is it if your clients are local, or you want to come and collect your post?

We have a large variety of clients who enjoy using our mailbox service, from rising YouTube stars who want to be able to communicate via mail with their viewers but don’t want to disclose their personal address, to a Veg Fest Best Vegan Cosmetics 2015 nominee and start-up business who want a solid, local address that won’t change even if the director decides to relocate.  Our clients chose a professional address for 3 main reasons;

  • they're not resident in the area but want to establish a physical presence without the overhead of a staffed office
  • they don't have an address where parcels and recorded delivery items can be signed for, stored and collected at will
  • thet work from home or wish to guard their privacy

For more details, check out our article - 5 reasons why you need a professional address.

Why choosing Whitehill makes sense

We're proud to be the most cost effective supplier of mailbox rentals (otherwise known as professional/business address) in the south west at £18* per month. Our fully trained staff will send you electronic notifications via email or text of any mail or parcels arriving, for you to decide whether to get it forwarded, scanned and stored or when to come and collect it. With a member of staff always on hand during office hours, you’ll never have to worry about missing that important parcel or letter again.

Maximum flexibility, minimum cost

We will give you rights to use our full address for any mail – whether you want to:

• Take a holiday and not miss any important post – no need to rely on your neighbours with our scan and store facility
• Project a solid, unchanging address to customers if you move homes frequently
• Protect your privacy by giving out our address instead of your own

Want to view your mail from the comfort of your computer? We’ll send you scanned copies of your mail for a small additional fee.

And if you'd rather receive the original copy of your unopened mail, we can organise to deliver it straight to your doorstep for just the cost of delivery plus a small administrative fee.
