Happy with EC Credit Control after the second iteration of our Terms and Conditions, as we are now dealing with a great account manager. Have made the process of advising our clients of changes to our Terms of Trade easy, by providing us with advice on what to say, and also providing a document with the changes to our original (for clients who request it). You don't know what you don't know, so recommend using EC Credit Control for your business Terms and Conditions of Trade.

EC Credit was charged with writing my (complex) TnCs for my new website. The whole job, from request and dealing with lovely Stacey to final print, was seamless, easy, helpful, and very prompt. I really appreciate the personal touch and help I received. I would recommend and trust EC Credit for the job you ask of them with no fuss and no excuses but with lots of care and swiftness. Thanks, Stacey.
