"We have seen the steady growth of German Autocare and Vancare over the last 20 years. Over the last 3 years we have seen rapid growth and feel that there is a demand in other geographical areas for an established German Car and Van service specialist. In order to achieve our goals, we felt that the support of a good local bank would assist us with our expansion plans and following advice from several business associates and our accountants, we approached Handelsbanken. I called the Leeds office and when the phone was answered in the old fashioned way i.e. by someone who I could speak to and not an automated message, I felt we had got off on the right foot.
Since that first call we've moved all our business banking to Handelsbanken as well as the personal banking of several directors. They have provided excellent support and advice on both business and personal matters and because we have a Personal Banker we can get a quick decision on any proposal we put to them. Unlike all other banks they are able to make decisions within the branch which facilitates a very efficient operation. The day to day paying in is dealt with through their partnership with HSBC where the efficient systems avoid delays waiting at the counter.
I have recommended Handelsbanken to several business associates who have also had a similar experience to ourselves."
