The benefits of using a virtual address

If you’re a small business or start-up that doesn’t require a physical office, a virtual address could be an affordable solution for you. A virtual address can provide a physical location to associate with your company, which can be beneficial in many ways. Read on, to find out why your business should be using a virtual address.

Business credibility

Using your home address for your business is less than ideal, especially if you’re wanting to look professional to potential customers.

Having a physical virtual address can help build trust and credibility in your brand, plus you will be able to advertise your virtual address on your website, business cards and marketing materials with confidence.

Protect your privacy

One of the key benefits of a virtual address is that you don’t have to advertise your home address anywhere, which means you never run the risk of unwanted visitors turning up at your home. Furthermore, a virtual address provides stability, as if you decide to move house or upscale your office, you don’t have the hassle of changing your business address.


A virtual address solution provides all the benefits of a physical office space without the hefty price tag. Instead of your revenue being eaten up by expensive office leases, you can save money and concentrate your finances where you need them most – by investing them back into your business. You’ll also find different virtual address packages include different benefits, like mail forwarding. Here at DESKGO, we offer mail forwarding and handling in all our virtual address packages.

Let customers know you are based locally

You can set up a virtual address in most places and it can be a great way to require a presence in a specific location. Another advantage of a virtual address is that there’s no need to relocate your business or purchase a premise, you can easily set up various addresses all around the world if that’s what your business requires!


Above all, a virtual address offers convenience – have your business mail forwarded to any address of your choosing and advertise your virtual address wherever is needed, without worrying about having your privacy compromised.

As there are no long term office leases you only pay for what you need and at DESKGO we pride ourselves on being flexible, which is why our virtual address subscription is payable by a monthly direct debit with one months’ notice to cancel.

Another key benefit of a virtual address is having the freedom to work from anywhere, whenever suits you. A virtual address is ideal for those businesses who wish to work remotely as it can give you the flexibility to have a business address in the city and work from home in the countryside, whilst maintaining credibility and prestige. If all your business needs is an internet connection then a virtual address is the perfect solution for you.

Business services

A virtual address is more than just a physical address. Virtual address packages offer extra features to support your business so that you can concentrate on the more important task. Depending on the package you choose, you will usually benefit from other services such as call forwarding, coworking desks, meeting room hire, business support from coworking space management and printing facilities.

The DESKGO telephone package will allow you to have your very own Peterborough telephone number as well as a call forwarding service. Just like our mail forwarding service, you can choose any phone number to have your calls forwarded too. You can benefit from keeping your personal phone number private, whilst also letting your customers know you are local to Peterborough.


A virtual address allows you to scale up or down your business, without incurring any penalties. This is a lower cost and stress-free alternative to traditional expansion which often requires relocating. At DESKGO, we have 3 packages available to help your business grow:
