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 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!

The rate was as advertised and I was paid really quickly. The only downside was needing a printer to print the form that goes in the post.

14th March 2016

I have used this company a couple of times now. They always seem to have the best rates on currencies that are not easily changed elsewhere.  The company are really good at responding to emails very quickly. I really like the calculator function on the website because it allows me to find out exactly how much money to expect for my currency. 

14th March 2016

I was looking for somewhere to change my Romanian Leu and looked around for the best exchange rate. UTM Foreign Exchange offered a very good deal. I emailed the company and they were abe to secure the rate for 5 days which allowed enough time for my money to reach them by post. The order process was efficient and I received my GBP very quickly. I would recommend the service to my Friends and family and would definitely use this company to exchange my cash with again!

14th March 2016

I exchanged £400 worth of South African Rand with UTM fx and found they also exchanged Botswana Pula, so I was able to get rid of that at the same time. I was a bit worried about putting money in the post so sent it Royal Mail Special Delivery which meant that I was able to track its arrival date. I then got a confirmation email of receipt and within 24 hours the money was paid directly into my bank account. Fantastic service and it paid a really good rate, although the website could be improved.
