“I’d like to thank the Scarf team for their first hand service in helping me to resolve a billing dispute. The dispute had been going on for months and was making me feel really ill as I had no idea how I was going to pay. A big weight was lifted off my shoulders when they managed to resolve the issue. They also provided me with extra measures like draft excluders and energy saving bulbs to help me keep my home warm and my bills down.”

“The Scarf team were excellent at supporting one of my tenants with a great service. Angela from Scarf and I carried out a joint visit to the tenant. Angela sorted ongoing issues with both the tenants meters, sourced her credit for both and supplied an air fryer. Scarf followed up with the tenant the following week to after to check all was ok.”
