Southern Heli Lift Limited

Southern Heli Lift Limited provides aerial services and heavy lifting work for the agricultural and forestry sectors in the Canterbury and West Coast regions.  We recently needed to introduce an additional Hughes 500-D helicopter to our fleet to cover an increased demand from the rural sector and offer more versatility.

Lynda and I have a longstanding relationship with Greg Columbus at Finance New Zealand and this latest Hughes 500-D is the third aircraft he has facilitated for us. We love Greg’s enthusiasm and his ability to keep looking for opportunities to find the best finance solution for our business. Greg sits down with us, taking the time to listen and really understand what we are trying to achieve.

Greg also makes the process so much easier, minimising all the paperwork and never giving up until he has found a structure and solution that he knows will work for our business. Greg previously funded our Bell UH-1 which other funders declined due to its age and uniqueness, however, Greg’s persistence and never give up approach resulted in a loan approval.

We would not hesitate to recommend Greg Columbus or Finance New Zealand Limited to anyone looking for a professional and personal approach to their business finance solutions.
