Had read the reviews on the comparison website and this site was offering the best buy-back rate so took a chance. Sent money by Special Delivery so could see when it was delivered. Received returned sterling at end of third day following receipt. Also guarantees rate for up to 5 days provided received in that time. Good service

Ok after finding I couldnt exchange currency in the uk, a quick google search brought up this company. Id never heard of. I was so so skeptical, especially after a google postcode search showed address as po box place. So I emailed to ask about this and shared my concerns. I received a quick response, explaining this is to keep costs down and they dont have business premises to save money etc. As I was unsure, i decided to send a small amount of my money to them. I sent it special next day delivery guaranteed before 1pm, and took out insurance. The company kept in touch with me. And was sent text and email confirmation today that the money was received today and the payment issued. Within 90 minutes the money was in my bank account. Super impressed with them, il be sending the rest tomorrow now I know theyre legit. Helpful staff, great customer service, speedy transaction, honestly cant fault the service I got. Thanks UTM FX much appreciated xoxo

This is the first time I have used this company and am very pleased with the service. I used their service to exchange odds and ends of multiple currencies. It was quite straightforward, although I was nervous of posting cash (special delivery secure) and I was nicely surprised to so the expected amount (decent rates) in my account within an impressive 48hrs. Would now happily use them again.

Excellent service. I dropped off a bag full of unsorted coins and some old bank notes and a day later money was wired to my paypal account. They did all the sorting and provided a report detailing each and every currency along with the exchange rate. I'd highly recommend UTM to anybody who has a load of old currency and wants to release some value.

I sold some left over Croatian Kuna that I had sitting in a draw from my travels earlier this year. I was a bit apprehensive about posting £600 worth of currency, but I had emailed ahead to secure a rate and the customer service department were very reassuring when I called. I received an email confirmation of my order. The whole process was swift and professional, not to mention that I got a great exchange rate! I will definitely be using the company again and will recommend UTM fx to all my friends and family! Definitely Five Star company!

I cannot lie despite the excellent reviews you still have that little doubt in your mind as you put all that money in an envelope and post it off, But it was fantastic, excellent communication via e-mail and the exchange rate given was brilliant, the money was in my bank account the next working day and they even e-mailed me to confirm this, I could not recommend this company enough and I will certainly be using them again.
