Drive Happy is looking for a new office. We really, really, hate moving, but unfortunately we need to. These are the requirements for our new office:
100 – 200 SQ Feet
Wow, that seems small right? Remember that we are a family business with just myself and my wife Amber. We are not looking for a mammoth space, just room for our desk and a few chairs.
This is the main reason we are moving. Our landlord moved us into a space with NO windows, and it is depressing. Our office plants are dying, and whenever one of us spends the day in this box we end up grumpy by the end of the day. Our next office needs a window. It does not have to be a spectacular picture window with glorious views, just a window. Something that allows natural light in to prevent claustrophobia induced insanity. 😉
Space For A Sign
We are legally required to post a sign. It does not have to be a 100 foot tall flashing neon sign, but it would be cool if we could use our snazzy smiling sun logo. Also, our customers appreciate being able to actually find our office. I know, crazy right? 😉
We need to be able to receive mail. Our current office has no mail service, which sucks. Unfortunately no one told me about it until after I had signed the lease. We don’t receive a lot of mail, but we do receive documents from the DMV so mail service is essential.
We have no problem sharing space with a business that compliments ours. We are young and friendly people. We teach people to drive. We are also great tenants. We pay the rent on time and we run a quiet office.
Old Town Murrieta
We like Old Town. It is a nice area, and centrally located in our service area making it convenient for our customers. We would like to stay in Old Town if possible.
Now that you know what we are looking for maybe you can help us out. If you or someone you know has a small office that meets the above requirements give us a call at 951-805-8666 or send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. We are looking to move by the end of February 2010.
Why are you moving, again?
Unfortunately we have not had good luck with office space. Our size requirements are small and that makes it difficult to find space. It seems that everyone wants to lease enormous spaces, and frankly we do not need that. I would feel ridiculous sitting in an a huge empty office.
In the past we have tried sharing office space with complimentary businesses. We had space inside 2 insurance agencies, but thanks to the wonderful economic disaster of the past 2 years, both of them went out of business. Believe me when I tell you that coming into the office on Monday morning to find an empty building because your “business partner” has fled in the middle of the night is not cool.
We are currently in a joint office with a counseling center. This was not by choice. They took over the lease when the last insurance company went under. It is not working out very well. They are nice people, but our businesses clash with each other. Also, as I mentioned above, we have NO windows. Not cool!
So, that is the story. We are shopping for space. If you have space, or know someone that has space, get it touch with us. And thank you.
