Stash It Storage
“Lance is one of the key people I rely on to give me sound advice. He's business savvy and provides much more than a straight accountancy role for us – providing sound advice on strategic business and tax planning, as well as anything else that crops up.
My wife Gabi and I have been a client of Lance’s for 20 years, and that has meant that together we have opened and closed companies, sold businesses and started new ones. He was introduced to us through my parents, as he was their accountant. This association grew from just doing our accounts, as when issues arose within the various businesses we have been involved in over the years, Lance would be there with the skills and know-how to solve them.
What I really appreciate about Lance is his ability to talk to the layman. It doesn’t matter what background you come from, Lance will make sure that you understand the issues and give you solutions. He doesn’t talk over you in industry jargon, but relates the information to you in a way that you will understand. Lance is also accessible – I can flick off a quick email to him, and he will respond in a timely manner, with the answers or advice I want. And with our children also becoming more involved in the business these days, the relationship with Lance has now grown to include the third generation.
Lance’s advice during the sale of a chain of storage facilities proved invaluable. The buyers were a large corporate business who had a team of five lawyers. On our side of the negotiations we had Lance, my lawyer and I. We were a small reliable team, but an extremely capable one. However, truly invaluable was that if Lance didn’t know something, he was big enough to seek the answer from someone who did. He always had our best interest at heart”.
