What is a coworking space?

A coworking space is a shared workspace where you can rent a place or an office to work. As the spaces are usually rented individually, people working in these spaces rarely work for the same company, or they work in small teams.
Using a coworking space can have some advantages for freelancers, start-ups and small businesses.

  • Costs. Coworking spaces are cheaper compared to renting an entire office and you can decide whether you want to rent your space per day or per month. This represent a big advantage especially for free-lancers, young entrepreneurs and start-ups.
  • Productivity. With many different people in one space, there is a big chance that someone can help you or offers the service that you are looking for.
  • Creativity. Working in the same space with like-minded people increases creativity.

 

Important things when shipping to a coworking space

Sending or receiving a parcel from or to a coworking space can be a convenient option when you spend more time at work than at home, or when you frequently need stuff for your job. Printers, video equipment, samples and game consoles are items that are often shipped to coworking spaces. Whatever the reason, you always want it to go as smooth as possible. Shipping packages to a coworking space is not complicated when you keep the following things in mind.

Opening hours. Always keep in mind the opening hours of your coworking space. The courier cannot deliver the parcel when the coworking space is closed.

 

Access to the area. Some coworking spaces use an access code so you should provide the courier with the access details. Also check if the courier can enter the premises with the van for the delivery in the coworking space.

 

Exact location. Coworking spaces can have multiple rooms, floors or even buildings. Without a precise location of the coworking space, the courier cannot pick up or deliver the package. Always report all the details of the address to help the courier.

 

Telephone number. It is recommended to provide a local telephone number. The courier usually only speaks the local language and, in case of calls, only local phone numbers will be contacted. When you don’t speak the local language (because you are an expat for example), provide the telephone number of someone else who can help you with this.
