TRY IT NOW

Once again I have to write to congratulate you on the swiftness of your services.

I put the abandoned vehicle legal sign that you gave me on an old type Audi which had been just left on our land, and it was quite interesting having several people watching me doing it, but no one came forward to ask me what I was doing. Obviously the word got around and the vehicle was removed within 48 hours. This has saved me having to pay to get it removed and recycled, so a big thank you to strikes B2B Debt Collection agency

Ann Rumsby, Dencora

Just want to say thank you to Strikes Collection Services for your help with our unwanted visitors, it was much appreciated.

Zoe Schager, Senior Customer Service Representative

I would just like to say a massive thank you to you and your staff for removing the unwanted travellers from our car park in Peterborough.

To have them moved on without them even staying a night is absolutely great and our tenants on the business park are very grateful. If I had the same service through the courts this would have taken three weeks, and I am sure it would have cost us at least double, especially with the clear up afterwards.

Ann Rumsby, Dencora

I will certainly keep you in mind for future work as was thoroughly impressed with your service

Jacqueline, Associate, LLP

I have known and worked in conjunction with Strikes for sometime now. Chris Bane and his team are reliable and always on hand to assist whenever that may be.

I would not hesitate in recommending Strikes services.

Peter Harling, Insolvency, Litigation, Debt Recovery and Company Restoration solicitor at Chadwick Lawrence LLP Solicitors, West Yorkshire

This is the first time we have used a debt collection agency.

I would have no hesitation in using Strikes Collection Services again and recommending them to others.

I had been chasing the outstanding debt myself for almost six months but Chris managed to reclaim the outstanding monies within a matter of days. Chris was very professional and took away all the stress. I only wish I had contacted Strikes earlier!

Katie, Credit Control Manager, Manchester Recruitment Agency

We, as a company, have used Chris for a number of year. Always on hand to advise us and very professional in dealing with our lessees.

Billy Wilson, Senior Credit Controller, Heineken UK

Always can be counted on for a fast, efficient and reliable service.

Clare, Solicitor, Real Estate Dispute Resolution

We instructed Chris Bane, of Strikes Bailiffs, to evict some travellers from our car park at the John Smith’s Stadium here in Huddersfield. This was done in a very professional manner and to a time scale that meant there was no disruption to our business, tenants or customers. We would certainly have no hesitation in recommending Chris Bane, of Strikes Bailiffs to anyone needing the services of a Bailiff.

Philip. J .Armitage MBIFM, Operations Manager, Kirklees Stadium Development Limited, The John Smith’s Stadium

I have found Strikes CS to be efficient, professional and most importantly effective when managing our ledger/clients.

Strikes CS have provided a service that we will most certainly be using again and I feel confident recommending to other businesses without reservation. The results speak for themselves! Thank you for your continuing support over the last 12 months.

Emma, Strand Recruitment
