The Fast Cash Company Store LoansThe Fast Cash Company offers a range of financial products through 3 shops each located across Essex. The specific locations are Canvey, Pitsea and Southend. The owner (Ranzell Ltd) also has a single shop nearby in Westcliff-on-Sea called Griffin Financial. Griffin however focuses on foreign exchange only, whilst the core brand delivers more choice. This includes cash for gold, cheque cashing, payday loans etc. There is also a Buy Back scheme ideal for those unable to qualify for their loan. They use for informational purposes. Perhaps in time they may extend to offer their loan on here. They are actually still relatively fresh on the scene having started up the business in 2014.

The Fast Cash Company loans are priced at 0.8% daily and so you’ll pay £24 per £100 when borrowing over 30 full days. The potential amounts are not shared. Whilst “Payday” is promoted in the main content area, within the FAQ they in fact state that applicants can borrow between 1 week and 12 months and so the flexibility is notable here. They use up much of the space to alert on the required documents being 2 proofs of your address, bank statements heading back 3 months as well as photo ID. Those who are likely to fail their credit check could still get some funding through Buy Back where they simply require photo ID and obviously an item of value.

When popping on to you’ll be welcomed by vibrant branding in red at the top with yellow and white text. As seen on the attached picture above they primarily use yellow on their store fronts using black text with “The” differing in red and white. We have only pointed this out as this is exactly the same styling as used by The Money Shop who we can’t see being overly happy about this. The opening hours are matched across the 3 stores as 9.30am to 5.30pm between Monday and Saturday whilst they are closed on Sundays. The Griffin branch has different times of 9am to 6pm during the week and 9am to 4pm on Saturdays.
