Genuine reviews from our customers in the last 30 days from www.feefo.com

Have you heard about Feefo? It’s a global feedback website where people leave their reviews and opinions about everything from businesses to products and services.

It’s a great idea because it means everyone can check out a company before investing any time or money into it, or making a purchase. The company cannot alter, edit or delete any comment which means you always know what you’re reading is the honest truth from the customer’s perspective.

So when Feefo got in touch and told us that we were receiving 100% positive feedback from our customers - and that we’d been awarded their highly coveted Gold Trusted Merchant status as a result - we felt extremely proud and grateful.

Here’s a selection of those comments.

Very professional service which dealt with the tedium of the necessary FSA security and protection aspects.
Very helpful specialist in Eric who was really helpful and the whole remortgage went through without a hitch.

They explained everything ,and arranged the complete process in the comfort of our home. Our consultant from Bower Retirement Sheila Carroll, made sure we had
the plan that suited our needs.

Once we decided to proceed ,Nicola Randall from Bowers head office took over the process to completion.

They arranged a solictor, an independent valuer, and we even received a home visit from the solicitor to sign the paperwork. Throughout , Nicola was superb with updating us on progress.

Service:-

Adequate. No different to the other ER companies. I went with you because the ROI was lowest. Mistakes and errors were blamed on Just Retirement. They may have been responsible but it didn’t give me confidence.


On 09-Jul-2018 the supplier responded:
Thank you for your valuable feedback. I am sorry to hear that you felt we were the same as the other Equity Release companies; at Bower we work relentlessly on behalf of our customers to ensure their experience is smooth and that they are not inconvenienced, however very occasionally issues arise outside of our control – it is at these times that we manage, on behalf of our customer to ensure the best outcome - and this can take additional time to complete.
Glad to hear that you were confident we provided the “best ROI” and we will take your comments on board. In the meantime one of our Customer care team will contact you to discuss in more detail.


Kind regards
