I looked around the internet for some time, all I looked at was very confusing to me. I then found Grove Financial and found it very easy to read and take in. I sent an email with a question to see the response. I had a perfect response in plain english. I was very happy to carry on with the excellent personal service.

Mr JB, Bristol

The whole experience was comprehensive and informative. I was never put under pressure, and the whole procedure was conducted professional, with feedback. Everything that I was told would be done was done in the time frame that I was advised of.

Mr MD, Plymouth

The people who dealt with my case were very helpful & non judgmental about the reasons why I wanted the case payout. Everything was explained to me thoroughly and the risks highlighted. Although this course of action is not for everyone, it has been a lifesaver for me. Thank You.

Mrs CS, Telford

After wasting so much time on sites belonging to “big players “. I selected an unfamiliar one belonging to Grove Financial and never looked back – excellent service and commitment.

Mr TJ, Surrey

from the point of initial contact right the way through to what was an extremely painless and satisfactory final outcome I was treated with courtesy, politeness and kept informed of every stage. My requests for any further clarification are treated with great patience and understanding.

Mrs HB, Newcastle Upon Tyne

I have already recommended your services to some of my colleagues. I was highly delighted with all aspects of the services I received. Thank you for a painless, understandable transaction.

Mr GWB, Driffield

Definitely I would recommend Grove Pension Release to anyone as they give personal and friendly help to people who need help, where other companies don’t.

Mr MG, Stockport

When I made my initial enquiry via the Grove Website I received a response within 30 minutes. I realised straightaway that I was dealing with a highly professional operation. From beginning to end my case was handled with utmost speed and courtesy. I would highly recommend your services to anyone thinking of releasing their pension.
