Hey guys.

I'm looking for a professional business address for a new website I am launching.

Office needs to be in Wellington.

Things won't look that professional if I just use my home address for the Office location. Its also not really very professional to not list any address either. (Gives the site a dodgy impression IMO)

Any of you guys made use of a virtual office before for this type of thing?

Regus seems to be quiet good. Can anybody recommend them or anybody else?

Cheers

If you give an address for your business you usually expect people to go there to contact you.

But from your post you just want an address as you think " 24B Moorefield Road"  sounds better than " 5 Dawson Street" ?

Why not put a POBox or alike?

Yes there are "virtual offices addresses" like http://www.privatebox.co.nz/virtual-office/ but personally I find people who give addresses like these are sometimes dodgy.

Also as said @ http://www.privatebox.co.nz/virtual-office/businessreg.php

if you have a company you MUST put your real address in the companies office which anyone can look up which will be your home anyway.

Thanks for the privatebox link. I will have a look at them as well.

I know whats required by the companies office and my home address is already listed with them. I'm just after a professional looking business address for a new business venture.

Something like this:

Privatebox will be perfect for your needs. I should know, I used to own the company :)

I would not recommend privatebox.

I signed up to them a while back because I wanted services that they listed on their website. (An Auckland address and pick up location.)

It turned out that they did not offer Auckland pick up.

First, they denied that they ever offered it.

Then, when I sent them the url of the page that listed the service, they denied that the page was live and said that it was not linked to by any page on their site.

Then, when I sent them a link trail going from the home page to the page the I had seen they just stopped responding.

I ended up losing both mail and money.

Very dodgy.

I now use a wonderful outfit that used to be called MBE and had a lot of outlets. Now the Auckland branches are known as More Than Print. I do not know if there are any other parts of that business in Wellington. Perhaps you could ask them.
