One of our Macclesfield office space tenants recently received a letter from EON, the electricity supplier outlining their new prices for the next year.
When this Adelphi Mill Offices Macclesfield tenant first moved into the mill he gave both EON and British Gas a quick call for power quotes.It is really important to let each energy supplier know that you’re considering the option of a rival company because once the energy supplier knows you’re talking to a rival company about electricity for your Macclesfield office space they will often offer to beat the other supplier’s quote. In this way, it’s relatively easy to achieve a good price.
Considerations when deciding on your energy provider for your offices in Macclesfield
There are a few things to think about before deciding on a deal.
1. You would be wise to take advantage of your office space storage heaters, which can heat up overnight and arrange a separate night tarrif (lower rate) for these.
2. Will you be using a lot of electricity in your Macclesfield office over all? If you’re a one man band you might want to choose a deal with a lower standing charge but slightly higher costs per killowatt. However, if you’re a two man plus business or you think you’ll be using lots of electricity, then you may be better opting for a higher standing charge and lower unit prices per kilowatt.
Response to the letter our offices Macclesfield tenant received
The letter revealed that the revised electricity prices for year two were to be significantly higher than the great deal in year one.
The offices Macclesfield tenant simply called up EON and expressed his dissatisfaction with the less than competitive prices he’d been given for the second year. EON were then quick to offer up lower prices which, based on the tenant’s usage so far, would actually reduce his bill by around 5% (instead of increase it by the 20% on the initial prices outlined in the letter). The figures were agreed and EON issued a further letter to confirm them.
The moral of the story is that you should always query your revised electricity prices each year to ensure you’re getting the best deal. It only takes 10 minutes and can save you £100s or even thousands in lower bills.

If you’re looking to rent office space in Macclesfield you will come across three key types of office space providers:
- Fully serviced office space providers
- Part-serviced offices
- Non-serviced offices
Fully Serviced Office Space to rent Macclesfield
Fully serviced office space providers give you just that – the full service. You will pay just one bill each month to your Macclesfield office space provider which will include all the services you require.
Beware of hidden extras from fully serviced providers
When you receive quotes from fully serviced Macclesfield office providers the initial price will often only include the basics such as office space, lighting, business rates, heating, furniture etc. However, you won’t get very far without services such as broadband, parking spaces, keys. These extras must be purchased through the fully serviced office space provider in most cases. These extras can bump up the price significantly. In our experience broadband from fully serviced office providers can cost £50 per person per month, parking can cost £30-£70 per person per month, and keys can cost £50 per person.
Part Serviced Office Space to let Macclesfield
Adelphi Mill Office Macclesfield falls into this category. Your basic services are included in your monthly rent / service charge. We offer extras such as parking and keys free of charge and you have the freedom to choose your own supplier for other services you require such as broadband. You pay the providers directly for these services so we don’t ‘mark them up’ as in the case of fully serviced Macclesfield office providers.
- Office rent
- Car parking for all staff
- Maintenance of public areas such as toilets, car park, outside of building etc.
- Security and 24/7 keypad access
For a comprehensive list of included services please see our office space facilities page.
What’s not included
- Business rates – More information on calculating Business Rates can be found on the Business Link website and on at the website of the Valuation Office Agency VOA. The VOA are an executive agency of HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) and administer Business Rates. To give you a rough idea of Business Rates, at the time of writing this a 600 Sq Ft office is paying £80 a month in business rates (including Small Business Rates Releif).
- Phone and broadband – When I last checked, BT was running a deal including broadband, a phone line, 500 minutes of free calls per month for £54 / month.
- Electricity – you can use your prefered supplier and at the time of writing this article one of our tenants using a modest amount of power is receiving rates of DAY 0.0828 , NIGHT 0.0408 DAILY STANDING CHARGE 0.1466 with EON.
- Furniture – Most tenants provide their own. However, if required we can often lend you furniture which has been left behind by old tenants.
Non Serviced Office Space Macclesfield
Non-serviced office space providers generally charge you for leasing the premises only. You are responsible for everything else, which in many cases includes maintenance of the building itself, running wiring and infrastructure.
Macclesfield office space to rent under 500 Sq Ft
The Enterance to the Third Floor of the Adelphi Mill Offices in Macclesfield
Over at the Adelphi Mill Offices Macclesfield we’ve been experiencing a strong demand for smaller 300 Sq Ft office space to let in Macclesfield. Building work is currently underway on the creation of three smaller 300 Sq Ft offices on the 3rd floor of the Adelphi Mill to meet this demand.
All three of these offices feature relaxing views accross the Macclesfield Canal, which runs alongside the Adelphi Mill. These offices are ideally suited to start-up businesses who want the professionalism of having their own office space without having to invest in larger offices. The new offices are ideally suited to established businesses who only require a smaller base.
How many people can fit in a 300 Sq Ft Macclesfield office
Stairs up to the third Floor of the Adelphi Mill Offices Macclesfield
As a very rough guide the 300 Sq Ft offices can potentially accommodate anywhere from 1 person through to 6 depending various factors such as how much furniture you have in the office. However, we strongly recommend you arrange a viewing to see for yourself. As your business grows in size and your require more space, the Adelphi Mill can accommodate this by moving you to a larger office within the Mill. You wouldn’t even need to change your address on your business cards.
We expect these new 300 Sq Ft offices to rent in Macclesfield to be available during August 2010. Given the popularity of these smaller offices in Macclesfield we strongly urge interested parties to arrange an immediate viewing to avoid disappointment.
