PPI Sheffield

Claim Your PPI In Sheffield

Just like every other city in the UK, Sheffield played host to a great many familiar financial names in the late 1980s and early 1990s. These institutions were trusted by the public, and could at one time always be relied upon for fair and frank advice and guidance. If the local bank manager recommended a particular course of action, that course was generally accepted without a moment’s thought.

At that time, interest rates were high and the financial sector was enjoying large, easy profits. The rates tumbled soon after and from then on banks, building societies and credit providers looked for other streams of income that would keep the cash flowing in. That other stream turned out to be Personal Protection Insurance, a product that required little or no staff training and could be sold on to just about anyone.

The high streets and shopping malls of Sheffield played host to all the major names in finance. The Halifax, NatWest, Barclays, TSB, Yorkshire Bank and all the rest maintained a strong presence in the city, and they sold PPI policies with great gusto, recommending the product to a great many consumers who didn’t really need it and in some instances didn’t even want it.

It’s worth noting that PPI wasn’t just added to bank loans. If you lived in Sheffield at that time and you signed up to any of a number of financial agreements you may well have had PPI. Many credit cards, mortgages, car loans, catalogue accounts and store cards all came with this white elephant of an add-on, and some customers weren’t even informed of its presence at all.

Where did the trust go?

Looking back now, it’s hard to imagine just how enthusiastic the finance companies were about selling a product that was often of little or no use to the customer. The banks and building societies dropped their former benevolent personas and evolved into hard-hearted corporations that were aggressively looking to achieve their sales targets. The trust between banks and consumers crumbled.

Here at Beat the Banks, we have a team of experienced specialists who are dedicated to bringing our customers the justice they deserve. We have handled cases for many years now, and we have an in-depth understanding of just how underhand the mis-selling of PPI became. We know how low some organisations went in order to generate sales, and we don’t think they should be allowed to get away with it. The PPI story is nothing short of a national scandal, and it’s one that the financial sector should be thoroughly ashamed of.

If you feel you may have been a victim in all this, the sensible option is to get in touch with our friendly team as soon as possible. You can complete the online contact form or call 0800 193 1234, the process takes only a few minutes, then we can take it from there. Justice might be easier to achieve than you thought, so get in touch today. We’re looking forward to having a chat with you.

  • Mrs C, Glasgow

    “From beginning to end, Beat the Banks have been very efficient. I am very pleased with the service from Jenna and the team. I am highly delighted and I have been recommending all of my friends.”

  • Shona, Dundee

    “Huge thank you to the team. After attempting to claim PPI myself and getting absolutely nowhere, I got Beat the Banks involved and ended up getting  £12,000. What a result. Beat the Banks made it so easy and were committed right to the end.”

  • Mr A McQuillian

    “From previous experience of PPI claim companies, I was a bit dubious if anyone could help me but I thought I would try Beat The Banks. To say I am pleased with the service and conclusion to my claim is an understatement. Beat the banks and my claim handler in particular handled all aspects of the claim from Clydesdale Bank with professionalism, courtesy, and efficiency to secure a positive result on my behalf. I would certainly recommend the services of Beat the Banks to anyone who thinks they have PPI claim, especially with the Clydesdale Bank.”

  • Mrs S, Falkirk

    “I was apprehensive about using a company to claim my PPI as I had previously responded to a “cold call” and was pestered with calls. I heard about Beat The Banks on a local radio station and because they were based in Scotland I felt comfortable approaching them. I have had a very positive experience with Beat The Banks. They are not pushy and answer any queries timeously. All the Agents I have spoken to were knowledgeable, polite and friendly. After the initial information gathering conversation, they understood my needs and just got on with my claim. No hassle. Even when it was clear that my claim was of a relatively low value they processed without delay. I would definitely recommend using Beat The Banks …. they put all the other companies out there to shame.”

  • T & A, Dundee

    “Down entirely to Mike’s hard work, we previously had a successful claim with Clydesdale Bank. Mike was convinced we had more loans with PPI and he was relentless in efforts to recover our paperwork from the bank. Finally, after many attempts, enough records were recovered to submit several claims. We have now received much more compensation, covering loans going back many, many years. If it had not been for Mike and the team at Beat the Banks this would never, ever have happened. Literally, all we did was sign our name and bank the cheque.”

    “We really appreciate the doggedness and professionalism of Jenna and the team at Beat the Banks. This is something we’d never have gotten round to doing and we’re so glad we went through the process with professionals as we’ve now had great results. Only positives have come from the experience.”

  • Mrs S, Falkirk

    “Excellent service so helpful, I received a substantial sum back that I had no idea I was due, thank you again to Beat The Banks especially to Gary who was so helpful and efficient in every way.”

  • Dave & Linda , Dundee

    “We had no paperwork but £52,500 reasons to say thank you, we are now living our Spanish dream! Exceptional service.”

  • Mr S, Dingwall

    “Have just found out I have won all my cases with the bank, going back many years and been awarded compensation of just over £15,000!”
