KwikChex is a unique business that was founded in 2010. Since then we have battled on behalf of both consumers and businesses committed to high standards.
We go beyond any other online business – using expert investigation, verification and resolutions services to achieve the results that both consumers and good businesses want.
After several years based in offices in Bournemouth, KwikChex now primarily uses the internet to enable our employees to work remotely. This enables us to keep costs down and to have employees in multiple locations, including in the UK and in other EU countries.
Our registered office as published on our websites and all other communications is a new facility for KwikChex (commenced December 2018) which is used for all legal purposes, post and to conduct some meetings – it is not permanently occupied by KwikChex, so any meetings or visits must be prearranged.
WHO WE WORK WITH
KwikChex works closely with many organisations in several countries, including law enforcement, government bodies and consumer organisations – providing information, cooperating in investigations and submitting cases on behalf of businesses and consumers.
In June 2019, we received a CTSI Hero Award in recognition of our work supporting consumer protection, civil actions and criminal investigations and prosecutions.Quote from Trading Standards “Its role in trying to stop scams or seek justice against the offenders is uncompromising and KwikChex has greatly helped to reduce consumer detriment, particularly within the Timeshare sector.”
TRADING STANDARDS APPROVED AND A MEMBER OF CTSI
KwikChex has been vetted and approved by Trading Standards – acknowledging the diligence and quality of our work – particularly in respect of providing free and effective assistance to consumers affected by timeshare and related holiday products. Our official ‘Buy with Confidence’ accreditation can be viewed on this link.
KwikChex is also a Corporate Affiliate member of the Chartered Trading Standards Institute (CTSI) – a process that requires sponsorship from Trading Standards Officers and approval by the CTSI. Thorough the CTSI, KwikChex presents and cooperates with law enforcement and consumer protection organisations, including exhibiting and presenting seminars at the annual CTSI conference.

SOME OF OUR HAPPY CLIENTS
(Reviewed February 2018)I found Kwikchex when making a legal claim against [another business]. They provided excellent information which helped in the court case and lots of moral support. I doubt I would have gone all the way to the court hearing had it not been for the support they provided. I would highly recommend them to anyone seeking redress particularly with [another business] as they have considerable experience.
"I was more than a little distressed (about fake bad reviews attacking my business on TripAdvisor). My business is my life & the only way I can support my daughter & also my staff, who are more like family to me than staff.One day I came across KwikChex & realised I wasn’t going mad after all & that many others had been stalked & victimised in very similar ways.I rang them the same day & to my surprise they rang me back in Viet Nam.I remember very clearly being quite emotional speaking to them & I always get a bit that way when someone is being kind & decent to me but asking for nothing in return.I’ve since joined KwikChex but was never once asked to & mind you the price is really very reasonable too.After TripAdvisor were contacted by KwikChex about the fake reviews, within 7 days, the posts disappeared. My warmest gratitude goes out to all the KwikChex team & all of us here will be forever in your debt."

"I found KwikChex totally by chance when my family and I had been under attack via a vicious libelous blog set up on Google in my name. Google had failed to respond to us or to police. My MP had been helpless, my trade union uninterested; lawyers demanded large sums with no guarantee of success. KwikChex were hugely sympathetic and pulled out all the stops with their particular expertise and finally Google did the right thing and took the blog down. It was a horrible time and, without the KwikChex team, might well have ended badly. Google need to be made to take responsibility and respond to this type of malice. The KwikChex team did what others had failed to do and protected us."
