I know I promised to do this review a while back but finally got round to it tonight. I have used quite a few debt collection firms over the last few years but none have come anywhere near commercial domestic investigations. Since signing up with them about 9 months ago I think I have passed them over a dozen bad debts ranging from £400 up to £7000. They have probably recovered about 80% of them which is a brilliant recovery rate I’m very pleased with. Well done and keep up the great work.

Was recommended this company by my main supplier as I was always the last person on the job to get paid. Not anymore if I have any problems they go straight to CDI to collect. I don’t get many problems but anything that arises is dealt with very efficiently by this company. Also they allow me to do credit checks on new customers I’m about to do work for.

Started using this company at the beginning of the year when my cash flow was shot. I was sick to death of people not paying and dragging their heels. Was cold called by their sales department and decided to give them a go. I don’t normally do reviews but my cash flow has never been better and they notified me this morning they had collected my main debt in full. I’m very happy with what they have done for me and hopefully I don’t need to use them much in coming months. Thanks again for all your hard work and help.

Started using this company the back end of last year after being cold called from their sales team. At the time I was owed just under 15k by the main contractor who was stalling and giving me excuse after excuse. Enough was enough as I was sick of waiting and when this company contacted me I didn’t hesitate to get them involved. This turned out to be a great decision as it took them less than 3 months to recover the debt with interest. I have since recommended them to several business colleagues who I also know are now using them. A little update further on my account they have just recovered a debt in full for 2k. Keep up the good work.

Dealing in the agricultural industry I constantly suffer from bad and slow payers. I got involved with this company 12 months ago and my cash flow has never been better. In total I have passed them 14 debts in which 10 have been collected in full and they are still working on the others. Happy with the service moving forward.
14:17 17 Apr 19
This is now the 3rd year I have been with CDI. Although I don’t get many debts they are always on hand when one arises which a very good success rate. They take a load of pressure away from me and give me great peace of mind as I’ve never liked chasing debts myself.

Got this company involved 4 months ago to deal with a restaurant who were refusing to pay. Just been notified this morning they have collected just under 10k as full and final settlement. I’m delighted with this result as I honestly thought the money was gone. Will happily use again should another debt arise but hopefully it doesn’t.
14:51 20 Mar 19
After having my fingers burned with firstly a collection company in Liverpool and then one in Newcastle I was very dubious about signing up with this company. After finally being persuaded I decided to give them a go to prove themselves. They haven’t collected every debt I have passed to them but they are by far the best company I have used to chase my debts. 3rd time lucky.
11:33 20 Mar 19
Have a great success with this company in recovering my bad debts. They save me loads of time as when a problem arises I just pass it straight to them to deal with. I have recommended them to several other businesses I deal with and I only hear glowing reviews from them as well.
19:22 07 Mar 19
Used this company last year to deal with a builder who was refusing to pay for no reason. The job was signed off and after ignoring numerous letters and phone calls he obviously thought I was going to write it off. Once these got involved he started making contact with me and the debt was resolved in under 6 weeks. Will definitely use again should anything else arise in the future. Hopefully not though.
13:38 07 Mar 19
Was convinced to give this company a try by their sales guy and after 4 months with them I’m very happy with the results. I have passed them 14 debts in total and already 10 of them have been collected. Keep up the good work.
16:20 08 Feb 19
Although not all debts collected I’ve had a decent return for what I paid them.
16:05 08 Feb 19
I run a small electrical business and had been chasing the main contractor for nearly 5 months for the final payment. It felt as if I was banging my head against a brick wall so I got CDI involved who had everything recovered in just over 6 weeks. Will definitely use again should any other bad debts arise.
15:58 08 Feb 19
Have used this company for last 6 months and have been very impressed with their tracing facility in tracking tenants who have done a runner. I would normally just write the arrears off but they have done a great job in recovering this.
10:38 12 Jan 19
Started using CDI in November and have passed 4 debts to them to collect. 2 of them have been collected in full and the are still working on the other 2 so pleased with that up to now. I will keep you updated on how they get on over the next few months. Seem a decent outfit.
10:29 12 Jan 19
Use this company to collect rent arrears and have been very impressed with their success rate. It saves me a load of time which means I spend more time on the golf course. They also have a great tracing facility for tenants who have done a runner.
09:37 07 Jan 19
Just been notified they have collected my debt in full. Very happy with the service as I only passed it to them at the beginning of December.
13:45 29 Nov 18
Had my debtor in a payment plan since August and just been notified today they have now paid in full. Very happy this has been resolved before Xmas.
19:42 02 Nov 18
Although not all debts have been collected I’m more than happy with their success rate. Was dubious using them as this is the 3rd collection company I have used but these are by far the most successful.
19:45 07 Oct 18
Used this company for the last 3 years to trace tenants who have absconded leaving rent arrears. Have had great success finding the tenants and putting them on payment plans getting the arrears back. I had wrote the money off so it’s a massive bonus to get this money back and they do everything for you.
15:29 28 Sep 18
Collected 4 out of the 6 debts passed to them within 8 weeks. Very impressed with the service as 1 of the debts collected had been outstanding for nearly 2 years. Thanks again CDI for all your help and advice and please try and make it a full house with the other 2 debts.
15:16 28 Sep 18
Just signed up with them for another 12 months. They are a massive part of my company now moving forward as they save me a load of time. Money well spent.
08:11 14 Sep 18
Things didn’t start well the first time I used this company but after 3 months of really no activity they got a break through and managed to find the person that done off without paying his rent on a shop I rented to him.They collected everything baring their charges and to be honest I was happy with that as I just wanted it put to bed as he had been a nightmare to deal with . Since then I have passed them another 2 debts and they have collected one in full with their charges and the other is on a payment plan and paying. So a slow start but since then can’t fault them and I will use them every time I get a problem .
13:42 02 Aug 18
I run a butchers firm mainly supplying pubs and restaurants. Have passed 4 debts to this company since signing up in May. 3 of these debts including interest have been recovered so very impressed so the steaks are on me haha. On a serious note your help is much appreciated and my cash flow has never been better
13:34 18 Jul 18
Used this company to collect just under £10k from a builder who was refusing to pay. Debt was sorted within 8 weeks with their help and assistance. Will definitely use again should any other problems arise.
12:19 18 Jul 18
This is the 3rd debt collection I have used and by far the most professional and successful. I don’t get that many bad debts but majority passed to them have been recovered. I have also recommended them to several of my clients.
14:29 21 Jun 18
I work in the accounts department of a small brewery and got this company involved to deal with a public house who were dragging their heels. The debt including interest was collected in just under 8 weeks. They weren’t taking any of my calls so very impressed with how quickly they resolved this. Sorry Natalie it has taken me so long to put this review on but thanks again
15:11 20 Jun 18
Was a little sceptical after reading some of these reviews so decided to go to their offices and see them face to face. Was very impressed with the set up so decided to give them a go. I’ve now been with them nearly 8 months and have been very impressed with their success rate and my return on my initial investment
09:26 16 Jun 18
Was recommended these by the electrician on site as I was having problems with a client who would not pay for extras. The client was not budging saying the extras were included in the original quote. Anyway I got this company involved and within 3 months they got me 50% as full and final settlement. Very happy with that as I was just going to write it off and put it down to a bad experience
19:23 15 Jun 18
I run a trade counter and it was starting to get ridiculous with people not paying and making every excuse under the sun to drag it out as long as possible. I got a cold call from this company 3 months ago and the success they have had has been amazing. I just wish I’d done this years ago
12:23 14 Jun 18
Used them on and off over the last 5 years. Great service as they save me a load of time. If someone doesn’t pay I pass it to these to collect so no more messing about. Keep up the good work
09:58 09 Jun 18
Used 7 times over 3 years and they have collected 6 out of 7 so can’t complain .I will be renewing as they come in handy and are far cheaper than using solicitors .
11:17 03 Jun 18
I run a small engineering company and it was taking far too long for me to get paid on completed contracts. One contractor hadn’t paid me for nearly 5 months when I got a cold call from CDI. I signed up with them and the debt was collected in full within 6 weeks. Very happy with the service and if it happens again in the future I won’t hesitate to pass it to these guys to collect.
12:41 31 May 18
Been using this company since January and have been very impressed with their success rate. They save me a load of time which allows me to concentrate on new business rather than chase old invoices. Thanks CDI and sorry for it taking me so long to post this review but I’m just always busy.
13:57 31 Mar 18
Have used this company for over 2 years and have had no problems whatsoever with the service. I don’t get many bad debts but I think that is down to the credit checks they do for me. They are now a major part of my company moving forward
21:02 16 Mar 18
I run a building business and regularly have problems with people either not paying my final invoice or disputing it, I have previously used solicitors or the courts and had mixed results at a cost. I got a call from these guys offering their services and whilst at first I was a bit sceptical of paying a fee upfront without results I decided to take a punt and I am glad I did as they have had better all round results than my solicitor ever has and whilst I sometimes get an invoice for their commissions it’s worth it as it means they have collected my money in,so I can’t complain. Well worth their fees .
13:38 15 Mar 18
Been using this company for the last 18 months and have been very impressed with their success rate. If I don’t get paid for any jobs I just pass it straight to them to collect which saves me a load of time and hassle as I personally don’t like chasing people for money. I also find their credit checking facility very helpful when dealing with new customers
17:35 10 Mar 18
Don’t normally do reviews as to be totally honest I haven’t got the the time and I don’t read much into what other people say until I have experienced the service myself. Fair play to them I’ve been using them for the last 10 months and have a great relationship with their collections team. I don’t pass that many debts but they have had great success in the ones sent their way. Majority of the debts passed had been wrote off in my mind so to get them back was a great surprise and welcome bonus so I cant wait for July as just booked a 2 week family holiday.
15:40 08 Mar 18
Have been dealing with this company for the last 3 months and the amount of time it is saving me is brilliant. Nothing worse than being out at work all day then coming home to chase monies that are owed. If people don’t pay me then I pass it straight to them to chase and the results have been excellent. I have passed 6 debts up to now and 3 of them have been paid in full. My cash flow has never been better
19:56 22 Feb 18
Was in two minds whether to sign up with this company after reading these reviews. The sales guy then supplied me some client references which I was able to speak to directly. I decided to have a punt on them even if it just caused my debtors some hassle. I have been with the company nearly 5 months now and although not all debts have been collected I have had a great return for my initial investment and will not hesitate to recommend their services
16:12 21 Feb 18
This is the third collection company I have used and by far the best. All of my debts are under £200 and they have managed to recover majority of them. I am flat out with work and haven’t got the time to chase them so I feel as if a massive weight has been lifted off my shoulders. Thanks Mick
