Professional and relatable

"I’m always nervous about speaking to companies as a small business because I’ve been taken advantage of more than once and ended up with huge bills. I spoke to Cheryl today who switched my commercial bills over for me and saved me an amazing amount. She was great, professional and thorough without making me switch off with her great sense of humour. The deal she got me was also brilliant. Thank you Cheryl I will be recommending you in future"
