A review of the bills will indicate if an increasing amount of water or waste is used on site. Data on the bills assists with the determination of a water leak and overcharging for waste and water. We usually find some immediate savings here.
A site visit identifies areas where excessive or unnecessary waste/water is used. Savings are very much dependent on the activities that occur on-site but there are always opportunities. Recommendations for the reduction of waste/water are generated from on-site staff and expert advice to find practical solutions which deliver savings yearly.
A brief report and user-friendly checklist are produced to implement recommendations and increase savings. We don’t want to swamp you with complicated industry jargon that will make your life harder. We also don’t want to try to impact the culture of your business.
We’ll give you an easy-to-understand list of steps outlining our recommendations based on our thorough audit of your business, tailored specifically to the needs of your business.GET IN TOUCH

"Mark has supported my accountancy business for more than 12 years. We recommend his consultancy services to all our clients including merchant card services, finance, IT services and support, gas and electricity tariffs, photocopiers, business and general insurance services and others.
Mark and Maxwell Grant Consultancy recently arranged and oversaw the transfer of our office telecoms to a fully hosted cloud system including connectivity. I was delighted with the seamless and effortless transition. It now provides our business with a quality and flexible solution!
Mark always provides a simple and stress-free process with his professional management. Looking forward to his help with many more projects for us or our clients in the future."
"My two estate agent’s businesses span two different counties and we have used Maxwell Grant Consultancy for several years now, who have no doubt saved us a lot of money over the years by managing all our utility accounts. Mark is superb and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him and his company."
"Maxwell Grant Consultancy have helped me and my clients save considerable amounts of money on telecoms, broadband, mobiles, energy and photocopying services. The Suppliers that Maxwell Grant Consultancy work with are all easy to contact and communicate with, as this was an area which we had struggled with previously. We can now focus on other business projects rather than trying to get in contact with large service providers, trying to get through complicated switchboards to speak to someone. Mark himself also goes out of his way to be available and bridge the gap if something isn’t going quite as expected with one of his partners. Many of my clients have not only been able to save money but have got a much better service and product by using Maxwell Grant Consultancy to obtain these various services."
“I would like to thank Mark from Maxwell Grant for the help he provided in getting my utilities provider changed. Mark’s service was efficient and professional and it was a pleasure to deal with him. I would be very happy to recommend Maxwell Grant to anyone else.”
“Maxwell Grant was recommended to us some two years ago whilst we were in the process of carrying out a general review of usage and spending in relation to telecommunications. Apart from the cost savings that have been made, we are able to understand our usage better from the trend analysis provided. Maxwell Grant has continued to be involved in terms of both ongoing review and in ensuring that the service provided by our new providers is maintained at the level that we expect. Our contact with Maxwell Grant has remained the same since our first meeting and that, coupled with regular contact, has enabled a relationship of mutual trust and respect to be formed.”
“After an initial meeting with Maxwell Grant, they proposed a telephone business package which resulted in a 40% saving against our previous telecom company. The changeover was seamless and it’s great to know that if we do have any problems we have our own account manager who we can contact. I have no hesitation in recommending Maxwell Grant.”
“Mark has arranged our landline and mobile contracts for the past 5+ years and has always been pro- active and considerate to our company’s requirements. Maxwell Grant is always easy and a pleasure to deal with and can be regarded as 100% trustworthy in getting the best value for money in the marketplace.”
“We have worked with Maxwell Grant for the last seven years. They saved us over 40% on our telecom costs and continue to be proactive by arranging regular review meetings to ensure that we are still on a competitive package. We have recently moved office and Maxwell Grant recommended a Hosted VoIP solution which we are delighted with. I would have no hesitation in recommending Maxwell Grant to any company wanting to review their costs.”
“Thanks to everyone at Maxwell Grant. Not only was switching my business utility accounts quick and easy, but it’s already saving me hundreds of pounds. A professional service from start to finish!”
“As the Head of Facilities Management at Surrey and Sussex NHS Trust, I asked Maxwell Grant to review our telecom estate. They saved the Trust over £150,000 annually which equated to a 53% cost saving. We achieved these savings with no disruption and no decrease in staffing resources and I would recommend Maxwell Grant to any organisation seeking to reduce their procurement costs.”
“We contacted Maxwell Grant to review our telephony costs as we felt it was impossible to review them ourselves as we did not have the in depth knowledge of the market. After giving them details of our existing costs they provided us with a detailed audit clearly setting out our existing costs and savings that we would make by changing providers. Mark Shearring has continued to monitor our progress; for a recruitment business such as ourselves operating in a fast moving sales environment it is absolutely vital that we have a high quality reliable telephony service.”
“We have used Maxwell Grant to review our current utility contracts. Not only have they provided us with an exceptional, straight-forward service with constant feedback on their progress, they have also saved us money on our utilities – a refreshing result in the present economic climate where prices are often increasing. As part of the latest renewal negotiation, they have also enabled us to have our previous sizeable deposit returned.
It’s hard to find a transparent, honest, courteous and prompt service provider like Maxwell Grant – I would recommend them to anyone.”
“Following recent notification of large increases in our credit/debit card merchanting charges we were recommended to contact Maxwell Grant – Independent Banking Advisers. They were quickly able to carry out a free of charge assessment which resulted in a reduction in charges almost back to pre-increase rates. We have no hesitation in recommending their services.”
“We have been extremely pleased with the cost savings achieved by using Maxwell Grant. Mark is always easy to contact and because of the trust that has been created between us, we are content to leave the telecoms side of the business to Mark leaving us to concentrate on what we do best, running a successful bar and restaurant business.”
An existing energy and telecoms’ client who runs two retail shops asked MGC to review his merchant card services’ account which was coming up for renewal.
