We were recently contacted by a frustrated Will, whose wife was trying to work from home, but was being affected by the noise of their neighbour’s renovations. With the renovations likely to take months, Will asked us if it was possible to rent a garden office. The answer is yes, you can rent a garden office from Booths Garden Studios.
They are only available within a 160-mile radius of PE8 5AS which is in Peterborough. But, this could be a great option if you have a short-term requirement for a home office, like Will and his wife.
Booths Garden Studios offer three sizes of rentable garden office. 12ft x 8ft, 16ft x 8ft and 20ft x 8ft. Each size is highly insulated so will be comfortable all year round, and designed not to require any maintenance. In most cases, they can be built without needing planning permission and can be cleanly removed from your garden, when you no longer need the office.
You pay an installation fee and delivery fee upfront. For the 12ft x 8ft option, this is currently £699 installation and delivery of £2 per mile from Booths HQ to your home.
You then pay a weekly rent. For the 12ft x 8ft model, you’d be looking at £32 plus VAT per week. The rental can be classed as a business expense and if you are VAT registered you can reclaim that part of the payment.
If you return the office within 18-months, there is a £1,475 recovery fee. If you keep the office for longer than 18-months, there is no fee to return it.
