You might be interested in the Financial Section on this site. Banks, like Building Societies, often have a restricted range of services - and are notoriously conservative when investing your money. This usually results in very low rates of return. Our financial section covers other Financial Institutions, Mortgages, Investment Consultants, Credit & Finance Companies - and Crowd Funding!

Moving over from Swan Lane surgery has been a very positive experience for myself and my family. I have always found the reception staff polite, professional and helpful, even when I've heard them under pressure. I have always managed to get an appointment when I needed one (not always the case before) and found the doctors to be professional and caring.

Find Recycling Centres

Total Waste Management Ltd

Hovefields Ave, Basildon SS13 1EB, UK – 01279 444406

A no nonsense professional operation. They were on top of the house keeping and the yard was well ordered and tidy. I arrived early and was booked in to load a 20ft container.

I hired a skip from Total Waste last month and their service is brilliant. After I called to enquire, they delivered the skip the next day and even offered if there was anything immediate that I needed help loading into it. I was allowed to keep the skip for as long as I wanted - I just called when I had finished with it. I kept it for a week. They came to pick it up the day after I notified them I was ready for it to be collected. Again, the guys were really friendly. What's more, I got a very good price. Would definitely recommend and use again

I recommend Marco polo 5☆☆☆☆☆ for staff, food and environment.

This was a good Indian restaurant. Everything was very nice, a good selection on the menu that included all the usual fare and some interesting dishes unique to them. Very nice, but nothing to write home about
