How Smart differs…

A couple of days ago I was asked a very simple question by someone who was thinking of buying property abroad: "How do currency companies differ?" 

He went on to add: "They all seem the same…they seem to offer the same benefits when I speak to them about transferring money abroad.  How do I know which one to choose?"

Actually, the people at Smart Currency Exchange are often asked this…and their reply is that there are enormous differences between Smart Currency Exchange and any other exchange company, differences that could make a world of difference to you.

Firstly, Smart Currency Exchange is the only currency company in the UK that does not pay their traders commission – they get a regular salary.  That fact alone will allow you peace of mind that you’re not in the hands of someone who is trying to make the most money they possibly can out of you.

Secondly, they do not spend thousands of pounds on marketing.  Generally, the word is spread via the Internet and by word of mouth, from one contented client to their friends and relations.  This means that Smart is able to save vast sums on advertising and this is reflected in the exchange rates they are able to pass on to you, the client.
Thirdly, Smart is totally dedicated to personal service, a rare thing in this day and age.  I don’t know about you, but if there is one thing that absolutely MADDENS me it is when I phone somewhere – be it my bank, water or currency exchange company – and I spend the next half an hour pressing buttons and listening to ridiculous messages like ‘Your call is important to us’ – quite clearly it isn’t, otherwise they would actually be talking to me!!

When you phone Smart Currency Exchange, you will actually speak to REAL PEOPLE – people who can explain the whys and wherefores of transferring currency abroad and all about currency exchange rates.  So please, don’t hesitate to pick up that phone and ask questions about this – Smart’s currency experts will have heard them all before and will be delighted to help you.  You will immediately speak to someone who can clearly and concisely explain the whole process to you.

Smart sometimes feel that they have ‘friends’ rather than clients…and Ken Smith is a case in point.   This is what he had to say:

"I would like this opportunity to offer my thanks to Smart Currency Exchange.  I have been dealing with you for some time now, as I am having a property built abroad. I obviously use your services to transfer funds overseas. Your facilities being much quicker, easier and vastly cheaper than using my own bank. In fact I have recommended a couple of friends that have also used Smart Currency Exchange (names available if required), and likewise are extremely pleased with your services.

I have found all the numerous staff that I have personally dealt with to be polite, helpful and full of good advice, a service not very often seen these days but nonetheless extremely welcome. 

I would particularly like to give my thanks to James who I deal with on a regular basis. I have always found him to be particularly friendly and efficient dealing with any issues I have with prompt attention.

Once again thanks to all
Kindest regards

Ken Smith"
