Unit base take the hassle away of all the mind blowing aggravations on short term leasing."
Martin Bignell, NCP Cluster Manager
“The railway is a popular location for filming and TV production companies. Unitbase has been looking after our interests in that field for some years now and they provide a courteous and professional service. We are happy to recommend them to others.”
Chris Hudson - Media Relations Manager - Southern Railway
“Unitbase.co.uk has looked after all of the filming, photography, events and film parking at NCP for the last two years and we have been very happy with their professional and efficient service. Within this time they have generated a great deal of secondary revenue, with a whole host of exciting and interesting events projects.
Their professionalism is second to none and their expertise in the locations industry means they are able to bring to us only worthwhile and profitable location enquires. We no longer have to deal with the enquiries, which allows us to focus on our core business, safe in the knowledge that Unitbase.co.uk are managing these on our behalf and in doing so, have generated a substantial level of secondary revenue. This service has been of great value to NCP
The staff at Unitbase.co.uk always take on a hands on approach; are efficient , friendly and professional every time you pick up the phone. We are excited about what exciting enquiries will come from Unitbase.co.uk over the coming months and looking forward to continuing our successful business relationship”
Ben Heath – Regional Manager London - National Car Parks
‘Since we have been using Unitbase.co.uk to handle our filming enquiries, we have increased the revenue from filming by 80% year-on-year to date. One of the biggest positives for us is that they have vastly reduced the amount of time spent and the workload involved in liaising with location managers and crew and negotiating rates which has allowed us to concentrate on other areas more relevant to our own core business. The system Unitbase.co.uk has in place is simple and effective and I have found them to be expert and professional in every way.’
Teresa Walden, Business Development Manager, Brent Cross Shopping Centre
‘Since beginning our relationship with Unitbase.co.uk in April 2005 numerous bookings have been secured and over £100,000 worth of additional revenue has been generated which would not have previously been possible. The service provided by Unitbase.co.uk is second to none and can not be faulted. We have come to rely on our account manager who consistently meets and exceeds our expectations with his professionalism and friendly approach and by communicating effectively with all our internal departments. He has been extremely pro-active in gaining a sound understanding of our operational requirements and restrictions which is essential to contributing to all bookings being processed without any difficulties. I am sure that our relationship with Unitbase.co.uk will ensure a maximum utilisation of our facilities as bookings continue to flourish generating much wanted revenue.’
Paul Field, Business Development Manager, Earls Court and Olympia Limited
We began a trial relationship with Unitbase.co.uk Ltd in January 2008, to generate additional revenue from a former MOD site portfolio, planned for redevelopment. Since then, Unitbase.co.uk has sourced numerous viable bookings with reputable production companies, resulting in a welcome injection of revenue that has helped towards neutralising the high costs of the site. In addition Unitbase.co.uk Ltd have comprehensively proved the value of their location management service, professionalism with all operational matters and efficiency in co-ordinating with our onsite facilities and security staff. We’ve subsequently renewed their contract first site and also appointed them to act on a further site, as well as introducing them to a sister company within forward to working with them on other properties within our portfolio.
Barrie Simpson, Managing Director Vinci Properties PLC
“Unitbase.co.uk began managing filming at Thomas More Square in 2006, initially on a non exclusive basis, but performed so well during this period, handling a number of high profile and profitable film shoots, that in January 2009 we appointed them as our exclusive agent for all future filming and photography at the site.
I have found Unitbase.co.uk to be professional, highly organised and committed to ensuring filming on site does not disrupt our day to day operations, or disturb existing tenants or resident business. They undertook to liaise with the on onsite security staff, involving them every step of the way, so I could not speak more highly of their communication skills.
In short Unitbase.co.uk provides an outstanding service, that has delivered to Land Securities important secondary revenue, achieved by building positive working relationships with all involved in the filming process, so I couldn’t speak more highly of them or recommend a better location agency.”
Anthony Nottage - Estate Manager - Thomas More Square
“Unitbase.co.uk has been promoting my property for 4 years now and since then I have received a continued flow of filming and photographic enquires which have always been handled faultlessly by the team at Unitbase.co.uk.
Throughout this period the majority of the work has been commercials, which always bring with them large crew numbers and use the location from dawn until dusk, if at any time there are problems or issues Unitbase are always first to react and always seem to be able to iron out any creases to make sure that my property is looked after and that the production company get what they need and have paid for.
I would immediately recommend Unitbase.co.uk to anyone looking to hire out their property as a location; the team have great expertise in the field and know what a location is worth will negotiate to get the best deal. They are honest, straight forward and professional and subsequently they deliver a great service.”
Judy Hill - Residential Location Owner
We have been a client of Unitbase.co.uk with an exclusive contract since 2004 and have been thankful for their great service from day one! We operate a very busy car park in central London and with thanks to Unitbase.co.uk we have been able to open up a new avenue of revenue that we would have probably turned away in the past.
The team at Unitbase.co.uk were able to make the whole process from initial enquiry, to receiving the payment completely stress free. They make the effort to meet with the production company looking to park at my car park and discuss all of their parking requirements such as how the parking will be carried out. Their attention to detail is second to none and without their involvement and management, we simply wouldn’t take such business on.

TESTIMONIALS...From Production People...
"The event was a success from our point of view – the venue made a brilliant setting for our product and was a contrast from what most people expected when visited. Other than that, we were really happy with UnitBase and will definitely look at your properties again when considering our next event. I felt the event went smoothly and the organisation process was one of the least stressful I’ve been through in organising an event."
Ravi, NC Soft Event, Bastion PR
"The location worked really well, and everyone was very helpful. Unitbase was great for helping organise everything"
Tom Booth, Producer
"Having been involved with the team at Unitbase.co.uk since the company was formed, I'm happy to say we have developed a valuable shorthand when it comes to finding locations and unit bases in and around the London area. I know we can get straight to the point regards the nuts and bolts of each request, not wasting time on unnecessary paperwork and being able to discuss rates in a flexible way to suit each budget / type of project. There's always someone available for advice and site recces which is helpful and I've always appreciated the fact they have worked very hard to maintain a sense of nurturing a professional relationship with me rather than the 'short term - ism' that has crept in with some other companies I have worked with."
Jim Chambers - Freelance Location Manager
"Unitbase.co.uk have always worked very well for me. They are efficient and thorough and will go the extra mile to make a location work. I used them recently in the feature “London Boulevard” for several unit bases and for a location at the NCP Great Eastern Street. A simple phone call is usually all it takes for a unit base to be booked and given all the other pressures in setting up a shoot this is a big help. The NCP at Great Eastern Street was to be used for a torture scene and to be dressed as though it is a building site. Through out the negotiations and recces, Unitbase.co.uk were very supportive and helpful and as a result the shoot went very smoothly. "
Camilla Stephenson - Freelance Location Manager
“Unitbase.co.uk offers a personal involvement; I know the guys there well enough to be able to phone them at unusual hours if necessary, often for any last minute requests. When you deal money with them, the first rate you get quoted is always the best rate, rather than having to go through some ridiculous negotiating period when I’ve got another fifty location to find. As a location manager, you just want your best rate straight away and I think Unitbase.co.uk understands filming - above all else you get treated as a client.”
Johnny Ludlow - Freelance Location Manager
