Contractor Accommodation Near Me - How To Find It?

Finding suitable contractor accommodation near you requires careful planning, research, and consideration of various factors. By understanding your contractors' needs, utilising online and offline resources, and being open to negotiation, you can help secure comfortable and affordable housing options for your workforce. Providing appropriate contractor accommodation not only enhances your contractors' job satisfaction but also contributes to a positive working environment and overall project success. So with all of this in mind, where do we start?

Tips to Find the Best Contractor Accommodation


Type of Workers Accommodation Near Me


When looking for accommodation, contractors have a number of options, with three of the most popular being hotels, guest rooms, and self-catered accommodation. For groups, renting an apartment or house is usually the most cost-effective means as they can accommodate multiple guests per room, and are the most flexible option. When staying at a property, it is possible to have the accommodation serviced like a hotel, but it is usually cheaper to forego this option if it is optional. A popular option when looking for these types of accommodations could be through a property search engine such as Airbnb or Booking.com, however, these platforms predominantly focus on leisure bookings, have limited filters that are not suited to contractor accommodation searches, and tend to be a lot more time consuming to manage for the booker (especially with large groups!) 

Budget & Location For Corporate Stays


The last thing you want to do after a long shift away from all your home comforts is to travel over the odds to your corporate stay. If you’re working in a city or big town, chances are you’re going to have an abundance of nearby contractor accommodation that's suitable and available to you, but if you’re in a small town or village, your choices are going to be more limited, and the few options that you do have may have a monopoly on the area and demand a high price. 

In many cases, the further out you go from city centres, typically the cheaper your accommodation will be, however especially in the peak of summer, high demand and low supply may force you to either stay further from your desired location or pay significantly more for it. If you’re currently looking for all your corporate accommodation yourself, we recommend reaching out to a contractor accommodation provider such as Comfy Workers to do the leg work for you. Not only is it a free service, but because they have a network of thousands of hosts, you’ll often find properties that aren’t listed anywhere else. This includes accomodation closeby to construction sites. They are also usually able to negotiate reduced prices on your behalf.

Duration of Stay


Whether you are looking for long-stay corporate lets or short-term accommodation for business, you usually have more complex requirements than your traditional leisure booking. For example, you may require accommodation for a year, but only Monday to Friday. Using an agent such as Comfy Workers would give you an appointed expert who can handle complex inquiries such as this with the utmost ease. We can speak directly to numerous hosts from our extensive network, and have the capability to book long term temporary accommodation, without you entering into a lease agreement. We can bring you the “home from home” comforts along with the necessary flexibility needed for corporate stays.

Where to Find the Best Corporate Accommodation Near Me


For contractors looking for accommodation, first thoughts might be the likes of Airbnb, Booking.com, or Travelodge, but looking for contractor-specific accommodation through providers such as Comfy Workers can often save you time and money over the alternatives. The benefits of using Comfy Workers are countless, with hosts all across the country, you can get rates that aren’t available elsewhere, and you don’t need to do any of the leg work. They understand that the nature of your business requires a high amount of flexibility but with no compromise on quality. After completing an enquiry online, or speaking to one of their dedicated agents, you’ll receive a shortlist of suitable serviced accommodation properties that fit your requirements via email, so you don’t need to spend time pouring through site after site and listing after listing.


 


Unlike regular hotels and Airbnb, specialist contractor accommodation providers better understand the needs of contractors, and they can accommodate last minute accommodation near construction site requests as well, and they do this without a fee.
