All Services

Ancillary Services

Our ancillary services are available to all our clients. If a case requires a specific service such as legal action or debtor tracing, the associated issuing cost will be explained to you before any speculative action is taken and we will require your express instruction before undertaking any fee incurring work.

No collection, no commission

In most cases, our typical commission rate is 15%, and we only charge commission if we successfully collect. Which means we’re fully focused on getting results.

Dependent on our clients’ terms and conditions, or relevant legislation, costs may also be recovered where we are legally able to do so.

'We appointed Redwood Collections to help us retrieve monies owed and they were great from start to finish. They were never pushy and were always professional and offered great advice.

Unlike some debt companies we have used in the past which when using it took great expense and time and took its toll on both our business and our health. Redwood was brilliant and it took no time at all to get the monies owed. Simple and efficient!

We shall definitely be using them again if required and advise others to do so if they need help.
Great service, friendly and professional service.'

DVB Hire

'I had an unpaid invoice from a client and after several attempts via phone, mail and email I had zero response and had to pass the debt on to Redwood Collections.

It was easy to chat to them and after sending all the evidence required, they got straight onto it and issued the client the necessary paperwork within 24 hours. They were on the case and a week later, I received a phone call to say they had received the payment in full.

Brilliant service and will definitely use again.'

Libra Carpet Care

'I am a small plumbing and heating business from Oxford. I had been contracted by a builder to complete a full refurbishment of the plumbing and heating in a 3-bed house he was renovating. The final payment was reduced by him by £700 for snagging. After 3 months, no snags had been brought forward. I asked time after time for payment to be made but I was ignored.

The builder agreed that the amount owed was correct, and after 5 months told me that the bill would be settled within a week. After getting fobbed off for another 4 weeks, I contacted Redwood Collections. After explaining my case to their agent, I was able to leave the case in their capable hands.

The builder still did not plan on paying, but eventually, he did pay. After 7 months of waiting, I finally received payment. I now recommend Redwood weekly to any other tradesmen who are in a similar situation.'
