About us - The Warehousing Matchmaker
Your guide to finding the perfect warehouse for your requirements.
We are on a mission to become the number 1 place for tenants (businesses, big and small) to find warehousing space, whether that is for only one-hundred pallets or a new facility. The uTenant platform simplifies the connection process between businesses who require pallet storage direct and 3PL’s or other businesses that possess warehousing space.
At uTenant, we have three main services:
1. uTenant Warehousing & Logistics
Getting started, the uTenant way:
- List your warehousing requirements through our system.
- uTenant take your requirements to market and keep your name confidential.
- All available 3PL’s with space quote on your work in a uTenant standard rate card.
- uTenant collects all rate cards from the respective 3PL’s and provides to the client.
- The client chooses which 3PL they would like to speak with, and a direct introduction is made.
Most appealingly, uTenant does not add any additional margin or brokerage on this service offering. One of our major goals is to standardise how businesses receive 3PL quotes to ensure everyone is on a level playing field.
Most people think... "What's the catch? How do these guys make a buck? So here it is, we get paid a transaction fee when we introduce a tenant/ business to the correct landlord for long term leasing arrangements. If you think about the world's largest companies, some of them offer free services to add more value than their competitors. Amazon in Australia offer free delivery once per month with their Prime subscription. You don't pay to use Snap Chat, Instagram, Facebook or Linked in unless you want more premium services.
YouTube let users upload and watch videos for free to build value and make 90% of their revenue through advertising, think of the landlords like our advertisers. See below.
2. uTenant Property
Getting started, the uTenant way:
- Standard scale of fees. Unlike traditional methods of sourcing Industrial Property, the uTenant model charges all landlords the same standard scale of fee's. Which is important for obvious reasons.
- One technology platform to introduce tenants to landlords directly for inspections and negotiation.
- The Tenant's name is kept confidential throughout the process
- uTenant’s fees can be up to 30% less than other providers
- uTenant share 10% of our feedback with the tenant as a thank you, upon successful completion of leasing transactions between tenant & landlord (*except NSW) uTenant can engage with real estate agents if they are exclusively appointed and we are unaware of who the landlord/owner of the property is.
- This assists in still having uTenant as the one point of contact.
For the Tenant
Why spend hours trawling through irrelevant property listings when you can make use of uTenant, the Warehousing Matchmaker?
Simply register on our website and complete your profile with your property requirements. uTenant will then curate a list of available, upcoming, and eligible properties and provide you with access to contact details so you can reach out to the landlord directly.
uTenant is 100% free for tenants to use, and once a transaction is complete, we share our fee with you. On the off chance we cannot find what you are looking for immediately, we will keep searching on your behalf. uTenant is here to guide you through the process.
For the Landlord
At uTenant, it costs nothing to list your property. All you need to do is register on our website and input your property details, and then our work begins.
We match your listing with tenant requirements and provide your contact details to compatible tenants who have shown an interest in your property. Once a new transaction is complete, we charge a fee which is typically lower than traditional real estate agencies and is shared with your new tenant.
Landlords and developers can list current vacancies, upcoming vacancies, and pre-lease opportunities. Since all listings are hidden in our private database, you have the freedom to also list possible vacancies if a tenant of yours is eager to move out early but does not want to publicise said information
uTenant is entirely confidential for landlords and tenants alike until a match is made and both parties are notified.
3. uTenant Solutions
The Australian supply chain, warehousing and logistics industry is an ever-changing, ever-complex landscape to navigate. Amid freight forwarders, wharf cartage providers, 3PL’s, transport/distribution providers, etc, it can be difficult to ascertain who is the best provider to store your product. At uTenant we help businesses navigate the complexities of finding a suitable logistics provider.
One of the many challenges in the industry is that every logistics provider in the market is unique, and each has a different charging mechanism or rate card to name a few. When you provide your requirements to the uTenant team, we go to market confidentially on your behalf and speak to all available providers that we deem suitable.
Confidentiality is key at uTenant. As you may know, another challenge is once a business goes to market, unsolicited calls about your requirements soon begin.
This is value added service for our clients/tenants of industrial property to assist with their goals and strategic growth plans. We offer advice at no cost depending on the detail of the project. The experienced uTenant team can also run Tenders, RFQ' s & RFP's as required to ensure you get the best solution.
A message from our founder
We strive to offer shippers, logistics providers and landlords an alternative to the way business has always been done. With your help, we will create a community of shippers who are trying to source space, and landlords and logistics providers who are trying to source tenants.
“We have built this platform for the landlords, 3PL's and tenants of industrial property within Australia because we believe there is an easier way to do things and together with the right input from the people at the heart of the industry we can make it happen.”
