Assessing your debt consolidation compamy

How do you access a debt consolidation company

1. Check reviews

First you want a company in business long enough to generate reviews.  Then you want mostly good reviews.

2. Interim Check 

If you retained a company, check to see if progress has been made in 3 or 6 months.  By then creditors should have been contacted and some arrangements made for resolution.  Otherwise, you could find after say 2 years that little progress has been made.

3. Clarify Long-Term Contracts

One worries that you could enter into a long-term agreement and find that little has been done during that period and the consumer is without recourse.
