As the only independent builders merchant in Chester, it’s vital that Hoole Bridge Building Supplies accept card payments to avoid missing out on sales. Manager, Mark Bryant, took part in the Handepay Price Challenge to see if he could reduce his company’s card processing fees.

“I had a feeling that I had a good deal on my card terminal, but when my local Handepay advisor told me she could save me money I was happy to take part in the Price Challenge.

It was so simple to enter; it only took a few minutes to find some recent bills and send them across. A few days later our advisor called to let me know that I’d beaten the Handepay Price Challenge, and would receive £1,000!

You always think there’s going to be a catch with these types of promotions, but Handepay put my cheque in the post the next day! One of our wagons has just broken down, so the money we received means that we’ll be able to repair it without dipping into our business funds.

I think that all independent businesses should take part in the Handepay Price Challenge. A lot of our customers have card terminals, so we’ve put leaflets up in our shop to encourage them to take part.”
