Testimonials

  • Unique Support Services have carried out window cleaning work for me for over seven years on two of our university campuses. This has included annual complete site cleans and agreed schedules ahead of recruitment days and other key events.

    Unique Support Services have always worked to a high professional standard, with flexibility, providing complete RAMS and procedures to manage our portfolio of buildings which includes anything from a listed Manor House to a ten storey tower block.

    David – University Site Manager – UK
  • I have used Unique Support Services for many years now at a significant number of premises ranging from Universities, Colleges, Councils, very large Retail Premises and private dwellings.

    Paul Vincent, the proprietor, has consistently provided the highest quality of service on a competitive basis.

    To date, Unique have always been able to devise innovative solutions to problems other contractors have shied away from.

    Unique are one of the very few support service companies who actually deliver what they say they will at the price quoted.

    I cannot recommend them highly enough.

    Tim – Head of FM – London Borough Council
  • It is my pleasure to write a letter of recommendation for Paul and the team. I have used Unique Support Services for many years at the university and their attention to detail, professionalism and flexibility makes it easy for me to choose them to fulfill our cleaning needs.

    I am highly satisfied with their work and have used them for window cleaning, night cleaning, the cleaning of student accommodation blocks and deep cleans etc. as and when required and often at short notice.

    Paul and his team are reliable, courteous and always deliver impeccable, high standard service. I highly recommend Unique Support Services to anyone who needs the best in business.

    Chris – Services Manager – University Campus
  • “As the owner of multiple restaurants, all of our daily restaurant, equipment and kitchen cleaning is done by a company called Unique Support Services (USS). I have got to know the owner Paul Vincent pretty well and USS are superb for us, cost effective and nothing is ever too much trouble (including call outs). I have watched Paul build a sizeable business and a number of 5* central London hotels use his teams and have done so for a long time. If you are moving your support arrangements I would whole heartedly commend USS to you.”
