At a difficult economic time when nearly all commercial enterprises are feeling the pinch, British enterprises profit from pulling together. Business-to-business relationships are changing as networking becomes an integral part of operations. Positive change is spreading throughout the UK as companies go above and beyond what’s expected to offer a helping hand to clients. One of the best examples we’ve seen of this involves a chartered accountancy firm, Jones Harris. The Fylde Coast enterprise recently referred their client, Budget Blinds to us, and we couldn’t be more grateful. Here’s how it happened.
Budget Blinds, a local company based in Lancashire, required a van to enhance the mobility of their business and expand their customer base, only, they weren’t sure which model would best suit their needs, or who to turn to. So, their trusted accountants at Jones Harris gave them our name, UK Carline, as we’ve previously provided several of their clients with ‘consistently excellent service’. Jones Harris realised that by recommending us, they were also putting their own company’s reputation on the line – as such, they referred Budget Blinds in confidence, knowing that we were well up to the task and would meet their high standards of service.
When Budget Blinds came to us, they had a van in mind, and asked only for prices and vehicle information. However, we were able to match their budget and business needs with a far more eco-friendly and economical model, with higher spec ratings – overall, a much better value.
Matthew Kay from Budget Blinds had this to say about their new vehicle: “It’s an excellent van, and a better one than we chose ourselves with our far more limited knowledge. The Renault Trafic comfortably carries a tonne – which is a lot of blinds and kit – and importantly it’s very fuel efficient with low emissions. For the driver it’s got all the things we’re used to these days in the cars we drive including sat-nav, blue tooth, air conditioning and an alarm. It comes with a complete on the road package including tax and even sign writing, at an unbeatable rate of finance. What more could we want!”
We’re pleased that Budget Blinds are happy with their new purchase, and grateful to Jones Harris for the referral. Jonathan Nolan, our business leasing manager who helped organise the deal, recently thanked Jim Baker, business development manager at Jones Harris, for his help, and the vote of confidence. Mr Nolan said: “Thanks again for referring UK Carline to your clients, Jim. We are always pleased to be of assistance. It’s great to hear that they were happy with our advice and service (and they had a cracking deal too!) Thanks for putting everyone in touch.”
Our upstanding reputation is only a part of what shapes our success. We rely on customers like you to spread the good word. B2B networking has had a positive impact on us, thanks to Jones Harris. By connecting service providers and providing helpful, cost-effective referrals, organisations like the Fylde Coast accountancy firm are doing their part to make Britain a better place to do business.
