Aside from our feedback culture, as a company we pride ourselves on the continuous improvements we strive to make in all areas of the business. Having a service such as Feefo allows us to get a clear idea of our services and how well our customers respond to what we think we do best.

Benjamin Garside, Marketing Manager at First Response Finance commented:
“ We’re delighted to be awarded the Five Star Gold Service Award by Feefo for the second year running. One of our company values is to be ‘Customer Driven’ and receiving this award shows that we are truly living our vision & values. Over the last few years we have put a lot of effort into training and development, and this is shining through in the non-stop effort provided by all First Response Finance employees, and the constant positive reviews from our customer base."
The Trusted Service award is only presented to businesses that use Feefo as a tool to collect genuine reviews and insights into the service we provide each day to a high standard. The award is based upon the number of reviews which are collected and the average rating off these, and as all reviews are verified as genuine, the accreditation is a true reflection of a business' commitment to outstanding service. Below is what was said when we were congratulated on winning this year’s award...
Matt West, CEO at Feefo, commented:
“The Trusted Service award has always been about recognising those companies that excel beyond the norm. This year we’ve seen many remarkable businesses leveraging the full potential of Feefo to provide outstanding levels of experience for their customers – and rightly being awarded our most prestigious accreditation. I’m looking forward to the continual success of the businesses that work in partnership with us throughout 2019.”

Here's what people have to say...
"I have a poor credit history, I have little joy and feel uncomfortable applying for finance as a result, however that wasn't the case this time. Very friendly, understanding and helpful staff who have your best interests at heart rather than making money for the company. That peace of mind means a lot more to me than I can express in words." - Trusted Customer, 2 months ago.
"Great and honest customer service from the second I hit apply. My assigned finance telephone assistant was as down to earth, matter of fact and proactively helpful in my journey from application through to picking up my keys to drive my chosen vehicle home. Thanks guys!!" - Jemma Watson, 2 months ago.
