checkmyfile stands alone in the UK as the only provider of online credit reports from all three credit reference agencies. We present credit information from each in the same format, making it easier for consumers to understand and compare them. Uniquely, we explain the very important differences between the public credit files that are available to most UK companies, landlords and employers, and the full private credit files that are available only to the top 200 or so credit grantors.
We have pioneered the provision to consumers of online credit reporting, credit scoring, identity theft solutions and precision credit-finding services.
Our accessibility through freephone on 0800 612 0421 or through email and our standard and speed of customer service sets us apart from our competitors.
Our independence enables us to give expert analysis of credit file information, providing professional advice for those who find errors on their files or who need help in understanding credit jargon. Where we can, we raise and resolve disputes with the agencies on behalf of consumers.
We provide these services either free, or at very low cost to the consumer, who is offered the most extensive range of payment options in the market.
