Why Might You Need a Loan Desperately?

Review of Shawbrook Bank

Brilliant service. The application process was a doddle, the Shawbrook representative who called me was polite, understanding and cheerful. The whole thing (from starting the application process to receiving the money) took around 3 or 4 hours. Very quick and efficient and no long or silly forms to fill out. Just what was necessary. Am very pleased I chose Shawbrook.
