The level of service was excellent throughout the process. I’m so glad I came across them, they did exactly what they said & got me relinquished from my timeshare & there was no charge. Well done KwikChex.Reviewed 01-Nov-2017
I asked KwikChex for advise in the first place, they offered a full support of my claim against a scam company. They were very helpful and found me a legal team, and the support they gave me in these stressful times was fantastic. I would recommend you speak to KwikChex if you need advise and help on timeshare matters.Reviewed 11-Sep-2017
A responsive, helpful and knowledgeable service which has been instrumental in helping me with issues. In an industry filled with companies trying to operate beyond the law they offer an irreplaceable and necessary service, professionally and without prejudice. I cannot recommend them highly enoughReviewed 09-Sep-2017
I found Kwikchex when making a legal claim against [another business]. They provided excellent information which helped in the court case and lots of moral support. I doubt I would have gone all the way to the court hearing had it not been for the support they provided. I would highly recommend them to anyone seeking redress particularly with [another business] as they have considerable experience.
