Might get you a good deal, but it ends there.

published

Shockingly poor customer service. It is so hard to find support for even petty issues. No one takes responsibility and almost no support offered after the sales stage. Even during the sales stage, I had to make ten calls for getting a response from the sales representative. I am not sure why would not he sit at his desk and respond to phone calls. Overall, It has been a terrible experience so far with NLC except for getting a reasonably good deal for a car that I was looking to buy.

2 months to set up a lease and still send quote for a different car. Heights of bad customer experience in todays world.

published

Had taken me 2 months to have a lease set up for my car. Everytime they go on radio silence and respond in upto 10 days after multiple follow ups. Quality of work is so poor that in the end after all documentation they send quote for wrong car and choose not to acknowledge the mistake, again radio silence for a week.

Appalling customer support

published

NLC does a fantastic job at signing you up - but the good work stops there. They way underestimated my costs so I am always in arrears and they constantly change and make random deductions without advising me. The customer team rarely return calls and never seem able to answer your questions. Think twice before signing with NLC.

5 months and counting for a renovated lease

published

My experience with NLC has been extraordinarily terrible. After changing employers I sought a renovated lease through NLC commencing in June. Despite payroll deductions, ANZ (the vehicle financier) have informed me my account is in arrears! I have been repeatedly ignored and duck shoved by NLC staff that not interested in fixing the problem. For my payroll to be deducted without on-forwarding the leasing fees is akin to theft. Engage with NLC at your own risk.

Not worth it- Terrible company

published

Got made redundant from my employer a year into my 5 year contract. NLC structures their contracts to never benefit you. There is redundancy insurance but you have to pay an excess, you have to pay a termination fee, they took weeks to reconcile my account and were terrible at responding. Now, 2 months later i am with a different employer and wanting to set a novated lease up again (to try and recoup the excessive interest that comes with these loans) and i now find out i have to go through NLC to set up the lease and the want to charge my even more fees to do so.

HORRIBLE- nothing but dramas! WOULD NOT RECOMMEND!!!

published

Terrible experience from initially signing up all the way to early termination.
Imagine paying outright, upwards of $30,000 and not receiving ANY CORRESPONDENCE after numerous phone calls requesting call backs.

Nicole Davidson was prompt, polite, and straightened out issues really quickly - I even got my car a day earlier than expected! I would recommend NLC to anyone who was interested in getting a novated lease

Customer service not very good

published

Signing up the contract and everything was good til I had to wait for the fuel card. Then I got the fuel card but the details were incorrect so I had to contact the customer service who keeps passing my calls around and not even bothering to reply to my emails. Customer service is surely 1/10.

Takes some time

published

Customer service was excellent when we had one consultant working on the project (Josh). When it was passed around when he was on leave, it was not a good experience with days in between contacts.
When Josh was back on the ball, everything was kept under control. It took some time but he kept us appraised of what was happening every day. He ended up getting $4000 more for the trade-in than was offered previously. I am very satisfied with the result.

Terrible service and high fees, not worth it

published

Took more than 2 months to get a novated lease and still ongoing. Customer service takes 10-14 days to reply. Despite information provided in emails, they are not actioned and I have to keep following up. Customer service officer also not knowledgeable and doesn't follow up. Eg 'i can't tell you the fees until you've done it'.

They charge a lot and this offsets any tax benefits unless you have very high fuel usage and lease a luxury vehicle.

Finally the stress of dealing with this company is just not worth it. I would rather pay more and not deal with them. Having said that, the novated lease is not worth it with them.

So Grateful for NLC

published

I have experienced great service from NLC and would go as far to say that they exceed my expectations. All communications are prompt and the customer support staff have always been friendly and helpful in resolving any issues or queries I throw at them. I am never made to feel silly for asking questions and information provided is understandable. I am very satisfied with my loan and recommend NLC to anyone.

Seamless, straightforward process.

published

From initial inquiry to receipt of my new car and the subsequent follow up support, the process of organising a novated lease with nlc was smooth and fuss-free. The consultant assigned to me was super-professional, friendly and responsive, and his colleague who covered his leave was similarly so. Everything was explained in detail over several phone calls, and the (not insignificant amount of) paperwork was easy to understand and navigate. My only suggestion is to have fillable pdfs for busy professionals so they can complete them 'on the run' rather than having to print them out, complete them, scan them and email them back. Otherwise: it was a really excellent service and experience all round.

Great service. Excellent packaging.

Hands down the best of the three novated lease options. Service was above and beyond and the flexibility in packaging is what won my business. Happily recommend to others. Best of the three major providers by far. Thank you To Hayley and Terrance.

Excellent Customer Service

published

There were unforseen delays with my car settlement, due to my employer changing their business name whilst my car settlement was in progress. To add to the mix, we were departing on an outback trip where service was going to be quite limited, and my contract needed to be resigned. Nicole Davidson stayed on top of the issue and updated me frequently, and pushed my contract through. The service Nicole provided was outstanding, of which I feel management should be made aware of. Thank you again Nicole, for your excellent customer service, and a very satisfying outcome.

Questions & Answers

Sylvia

Sylviaasked

i just signed up to a new lease, do i have the ability to remove the fuel and maintenance, rego, insurance, costs and just pay the lease for the car itself pre tax, remove the other options at a later date? im just thinking if in the future i want to change is that possible. the only small thing i don't like is that the maintenance costs are not pre-tax they are taken out of my post tax pay and its not really worth it for me since the running cost allocations are very high and not realistic.
