Below is a selection of comments from clients across a range of the sectors we operate in. Most clients use a the full range of our services and this is reflected in the comments below.
We have used the services of UniLink to help us with some issues on existing leasing arrangements. They helped the school to exit and end these leases in a cost effective manner.
In future, when we are looking at funding options for new equipment we will certainly be asking UniLink to quote and arrange, as their solutions are cost effective and offer greater transparency.
UniLink have been providing their services to Alec Hunter Humanities College for a number of years and have assisted us with our annual leasing requirements. UniLink have arranged funding solutions for a number of ICT projects and have also assisted in arranging the leasing for our minibus requirement. We have found their staff to be efficient, knowledgeable and easy to work with.
In addition to these specific services, UniLink have provided free help and advice on other leasing matters, which is a part of their service that we have found to be particularly useful. Using UniLink for all of our leasing requirements has made the whole leasing experience quite simple.
The College has used the services of UniLink for the last four years after approaching the market seeking a leasing advisor. They manage our lease portfolio efficiently and ensure costs are minimised at the end of the lease.
For new leases we have awarded and an EU compliant leasing framework in association with UniLink, who also manage the individual call offs on our behalf.
The services provided by UniLink add value in the asset finance/leasing area and the College would recommend their services to anyone interested in appointing a leasing advisor.
UniLink have greatly assisted the Council in getting its leasing portfolio into shape and since we have been using the services of UniLink our exposure and risk to leasing has been mitigated. We have also made significant savings both in extensions and return condition charges.
We feel trust is a very important part of the relationship and that is why we continue to use their services and we would not hesitate to recommend their services.
We are very happy with the portfolio of services UniLink provide, in particular, the comprehensive leasing advisory and lease portfolio management service.
The Council has around £12m of leased assets that are managed by UniLink and we have been very happy with the savings achieved on lease expiry costs. The on-line lease administration system is a valuable tool as it allows us and UniLink to track the expiry of leases, allowing new vehicles to be ordered in plenty of time, reducing the need to enter into extension rentals while we are waiting for new deliveries.
The system also allows our user departments to be informed of lease expiries directly, saving valuable administration time for the fleet management department.
Going forward we will also be using UniLink to assist in our review of asset finance and leasing including reviewing the use of contract hire.
This Authority has used the services of UniLink since 1996. I have found the services of UniLink to be excellent. The level of service, advice and commitment to serving this Authority is without question.
They have acted with integrity throughout, providing sound advice, analysis and most importantly transparent transactions.
Over the years, UniLink have consistently provided an excellent service through expert technical knowledge combined with highly effective practical solutions to our funding needs.
Asset finance is a specialized area of finance and we rely on UniLink’s market knowledge to obtain best value. We would recommend their professional integrity and strong desire to work in our best interests.
