Creating business addresses for your Serviced Office

Earlier on we have written an article on business addresses in general. We further this with the creation of a business address in your environment. Now in the traditional environment you had one whole business which contained a self served organisation with staff to produce delivery to their customer. This would have been contained in one lot with the minimum being a single floor of a premise or at worst a substantial portion of the premise if the organisation was really small.

In that situation the business address would have been easy. Just follow the standard of addresses as created by the postal service relevant to your area. Some examples are as contained in these links.

  1. Wikipedia – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Address_(geography)
  2. Universal Postal Union -http://www.upu.int/uploads/tx_sbdownloader/descriptionPostcodesGuideToTheHeadingsUsedInThisChapterEn.pdf
  3. United States Postal Standards – http://pe.usps.gov/text/pub28/28c2_002.htm
  4. A general Google listing of various standards – https://www.google.com/webhp?sourceid=chrome-instant&rlz=1C1MSNA_enMY660MY660&ion=1&espv=2&ie=UTF-8#q=international%20postal%20address%20standards

So an example relevant to Malaysia would be as follows: –

Salutation and Name of recipient: 

Position and department (Optional):

Company Name: 

Unit/Lot Number, Level/Floor, Building Name, Commercial Area:

Street name:

Post Code and District/Town:

State:

Country:

Now in a serviced office that information could be handled in a general manner utilising the standard postal address. And in some cases is the only way, else the items (letter, courier document, parcel etc) may be rejected as the addressing is not to standard or recognisable if modified.

But where possible, the unique identifier addition for those in hosted premises or serviced premises (Semi, full or none) in the case of serviced offices can be applied at between line 3 and line 4.

Salutation and Name of recipient: 

Position and department (Optional):

Company Name: 

<Insert serviced Office identifier for relevant customer>

Unit/Lot Number, Level/Floor, Building Name, Commercial Area:

Street name:

Post Code and District/Town:

State:

Country:

What kind of identifiers could we use? Well the most regular would be suite A1-01 or some such assignment would be relevant. There are other options as specific names like Azure, Diamond, Room 1, Office unit 01 and many more variations from simple to exotic. 

So an example could look like this: –

Mr/Mrs/Ms. Ageless Entreprenuer

Director

Entreprenuer Sdn Bhd 

Almond Suite

3-12 Dataran Pelangi Utama,

Jalan Masjid,

47400 Petaling Jaya,

Selangor Darul Ehsan

Malaysia

Of course if the location is small that the hosting is conducted in, the only reason that you would include the additional address line could be considered pretentious in todays setting. Especially when you do not need the organising of which location that mail belongs to. And without that additional address line it could enhance your customers prestige of being in an more friendly environment.

So do some research and some thought on how you wish to handle the business address offered or to be offered. Though not everyone is too impressed by big addresses nowadays, even with the more accepting nature of all in general,  a little thought to how it will be used in a practical way is necessary for all parties utilising the address.
