"We are changing our mobile phone contract providers", announced Jan our office manager. Now I am hopeless with technology, so to speak of more data, new SIMs and tethering was lost on me. We even had a countdown to 'new SIM day'. It dawned ominously, and with no children on hand; I had to swap networks myself.

It went seamlessly, as has our move to Croft. We received great service from people who value our business. I can now use my mobile at home as I have a better signal, and we are saving money as a business. What’s not to like?

David Hesketh, Managing Director

T. Rowe Price

Croft has supplied our mobile telephone contract for over ten years including assisting us with moving our fleet of over 500 numbers to the EE network.

The mobile fleet consists of a number of different handsets and data options and Croft were extremely thorough during the process of the changeover, ensuring that all of our UK and international requirements were met and advised of the various options open to us.

Croft provided us with all of the information required to help us manage our expectations on the day of transfer. The transfer was carried out without any issues and with the knowledge that they were on hand should any problems have arisen.

Over the years Croft has been looking after our fleet, and the support and account management received have been exceptional. The account is analysed on a monthly basis with any charges explained and proactive suggestions made where we may be able to make savings moving forward.

Overall, we are extremely satisfied with the team at Croft and look forward to the relationship continuing in years to come.

Cost-effectiveness and quality aren’t often used in the same sentence. However, this is where Croft buck the trend, and they meet our objectives whilst overcoming any challenges we may have.

Charlie Mullins, Founder 


A massive thank you to the team at Croft who have steered us through complex compliance, upgrades and major improvements to our systems and network.

A great effort and a continuation of the premier service we have come to expect across the full range of services we have been provided (IT, mobiles, landline, consultancy, data et al.) which is critical for any finance business.

I look forward to their continued recommendations, being challenged on the status quo and the push they continue to give us as a business.

What a wonderful job Croft did on upgrading our broadband and office phone system.

Peter was instrumental in setting everything up initially which he did with efficiency and professionalism. This continued right the way through up to the phone call to check everything was up and running.

Tim was also extremely helpful and was so patient with the hundred and one questions we had for him and the numerous phone calls and emails. Nothing ever seemed too much trouble for him. He was also very good at deciphering what I was trying to tell him about our complicated set up here (without visiting site). When things didn’t initially work on the porting day, he came up with an interim solution and then sorted out for an engineer (who was also exceptional) to come along to re-wire and re-position the fibre broadband box.

What a great asset they both are to Croft.

Croft have been absolutely brilliant. Sorted out our mobiles and we also have office broadband which is faultless. Amazing service and prices you cannot get anywhere else. Highly recommended!

Andrew Fairclough


Croft has given us a lot of help and support over the years; we would highly recommend their services as they offer their very best efforts in all areas of communication and all services they provide.

MCD started working with Croft over 5 years ago on the telecommunication side of the business. We then decided to take all our business to them for all our company’s telecommunications and IT.

The support team was very efficient from start to finish, and dealing with the support team was always a pleasure thanks to their friendly approach. The whole team is a great credit to the company.

Keep up the amazing hard work and excellent support you provide.

Leigh Pillans, PA to Managing Director

North East Truck & Van Limited

Just wanted to send a quick note of thanks to Croft’s assistance in sorting the issue I had with my phone. I felt very much that the team were making the utmost effort to resolve the issue for me which I really appreciated. Marco was very on the ball and proactive in trying to help and make sure things were kept moving along.

I’m often approached by other firms who wish to tender for our mobile phone contract or who are adamant they could do it cheaper, but it’s service levels like this that mean I have no interest in even discussing the prospect with them.

John McDonald


As a digital marketing agency, the staff at Wagada rely heavily on telecoms equipment to effectively complete our day-to-day jobs, whether that be liaising with clients on calls or providing our services online. So, when COVID-19 hit and we were forced to work remotely, we were so thankful to have Croft’s support, who provided us with unlimited data broadband dongles and business mobiles.

With Croft’s help, we’ve been able to continue to provide exceptional customer service for our clients, and our team have been able to collaborate efficiently and productively throughout the pandemic. We now also have a remote working solution that’s futureproofed our business in today’s uncertain economy.

With next day delivery of equipment together with immediate, responsive and friendly support, I cannot recommend Croft enough!
