I was a self employed builder who stupidly took out loans to try to keep my head above water when the recession took hold. I managed to get a PAYE job but couldnt see a way out of the 18K debt I was in. ClearDebt has given me the chance to repay the debt easily and become eventually debt free, obviously I would prefer not to be in this position but am happy that there is light at the end of the tunnel. I have always found the staff at ClearDebt very helpful and always happy to listen with patience and understanding.
My interaction with the company:
The transition from first phone call to my present position started amicably and respectfully and continues to be so. Never once have I been made to feel any less a person because of my actions than I should do. It is always a pleasurable experience which never leaves a bitter taste.
Why I gave the ratings I did:
I gave the ratings I did because of the way I have been treated and the professionalism in which it is served.
One thing they did - which really impressed me:
The easy way together we achieved an answer to a problem and the way it was executed.
One thing they did - which I felt could be improved:
Having never been in this position before I can only follow CearDebts guidance and up to now have no complaints.
I am presently in full employment and am paying off my debt through an iva. Although I would prefer not to be in this position I am glad to be paying it off in a way which is affordable.

Very informative with lots of useful information. A lot of reviews on firms that really help understand their customer service and ability. The reviews appear to be genuine as they offer interesting insights. Didn't really use the the map but looks impressive!
The site is a bit cluttered and sometimes hard to navigate around.
A useful site that is free to use and full of useful information about IVAs. If you are thinking of doing an IVA then this is a must use site.
