We advised the Volunteer Tavern how to leave a mis-sold contract, saving them 24% on their card processing costs in the process;

“Utility Swap identified that we were mis-sold by our current merchant provider and helped us to negotiate leave of them fee-free (despite being in a long contract). On top of this, they were able to deliver a four figure annual saving (24%) on our card processing costs. They have also made us considerable savings on both our energy and waste contracts; which is great as I have a single point of contact for all of these services.”
