Virtual office rentals starting at $50/month
Because it’s unprofessional to use a home address for your business.
Because it’s unprofessional to use a home address for your business.
A virtual office rental is an “unbundled” office rental arrangement where businesses get the professional presence of a traditional commercial office and have access to all its resources, such as an address to receive mail, a physical location to meet clients, conference rooms, receptionist and admin services, and temporary office space.
The difference is that businesses pay for these office services only when they need them, rather than a large monthly fee.
Business owners using virtual office rentals work primarily from another location, which can be a home office, or a traditional bricks-and-mortar office in another city.
Starting at $50/month, a virtual office rental is a cost effective way to maintain a traditional, brick-and-mortar business presence in a particular city, making it particularly useful for home-based entrepreneurs and professionals who don’t want customers popping into their home, and out-of-town businesses who want to maintain a local presence without the expensive cost of maintaining their own commercial lease.
Ripple Coworking sells virtual office rentals in “plans” that start at $50/month and go up to $250/month. Higher priced plans include more services, such as discounted conference room hours and deskspace usage.
Due to changes in Google’s policies about Google Business listings (formerly Google My Business) and virtual offices, members who want to use Ripple Coworking’s business address for a Google Business listing must instead subscribe for a “Local Office” plan which start at $100/month. Not all businesses qualify for Google Business. For example, online businesses who do not meet with customers do not qualify for Google Business. So you may be able to use a virtual office. Any business is welcome to get a Virtual Office for mail services and discounted conference room and deskspace time.
For more information about Local Office plan and whether you need one, speak with a Team member by phone or text (386) 888-2700.
The size plan that will work best for you will depend on how many services you need. For example, if you are an attorney or accountant and know you will need to host client meetings, depositions or closings several times a month, than a higher priced plan is more cost effective, because you get more conference room hours at a deeper discount. However, if you only plan on getting a virtual office to collect mail, the lowest cost plan will work.
The beauty of a virtual office is that, because it’s a month-to-month arrangement, you can upgrade your plan at any time, and downgrade with one-month’s advance notice.

When you purchase your virtual office plan, you will pay for the balance of your first month and last month up front. No additional security deposit is required unless you have a plan with conference room hours and you plan to use those hours after hours or on weekends. In that case, arrangements will need to be made to hold a security deposit, and the amount will be determined on a case-by-case basis.
Some customers collect their mail in person. Your mail will be collected and sorted before the end of the business day on which it is received, subject of course to unforeseen issues with weather or staff. Your mail will be stored together with the mail for all other virtual office clients. You can collect your mail from Ripple’s receptionist during our normal business hours (9 A.M. – 5 P.M.).
Some customers have their mail forwarded to them. We forward your mail daily, weekly or monthly. There is a $5 service charge for each package sent to you, plus the cost of first class postage. If you prefer to have your mail forwarded by courier, we require that you use FedEx and give us your account number so shipping charges can be billed directly to you by FedEx. The $5 handling charge will still be applied.
Yes! Even though conference rooms may not be included in your plan, you can reserve a conference room (or deskspace) at any time and just pay for it as you need it.
If you run out of your allocated conference room hours, you can either pay hourly for conference rooms, or you can purchase one of Ripple’s conference room bundles.
As a virtual office client, you are not subject to the two-hour minimum conference room requirement.
If a guest shows up to the office to see you, and we know you are not in, our team will inquire whether you have an appointment. We will kindly inform them that you are not in the office at the moment and we will ask if they would like to leave you a message.
Our staff will never tell a visiting guest that you maintain a “virtual office” at Ripple. We simply advise them that you are not in the office at the moment.
