Fastest Exit Review

Fastest Exit is a relatively new timeshare exit company based out of Scottsdale, Arizona. The company was incorporated in April, 2019.

This company came to our attention from a live chat conversation we had with a Club Solaris timeshare owner a few days ago. This timeshare owner told us that Fastest Exit contacted him and told him that Fastest Exit could get the total amount paid for his timeshare returned if he joined a class action lawsuit against Club Solaris. Most legitimate timeshare exit companies do not cold call customers out of the blue like this, so our alarm bells began to ring. The timeshare owner further went on to tell us that Fastest Exit told him that it got a full list of all 40,000 members of Club Solaris from the Profeco Consumer Protection group of Mexico. Again, alarm bells. It’s very unlikely that Profeco, a consumer protection group in Mexico, would give Fastest Exit a full list of members at Club Solaris.

So, we looked at the Fastest Exit website to investigate.

After reviewing the website a few things stand out to us. On the FAQ page the company says that if you want to recover money from your timeshare, contact Fastest Exit for help. However, on the /exit-your-timeshare page Fastest Exit says it won’t buy your timeshare and doesn’t recover money that has already been paid for the timeshare. A confusing start.

Heading over to the Scholarship page and we see that Fastest Exit is offering a scholarship to those who write an essay answering two questions. One question asks the students to write about why it makes sense to pay an upfront fee to exit your timeshare. More alarm bells. We like to recommend timeshare exit companies that offer an escrow payment option so the timeshare exit company does not get paid in full until after your timeshare has been cancelled. When you pay a timeshare exit or resale company upfront, you have no idea if the company is going to do what it says it is going to do. You could pay the company upfront, and the company may never cancel your timeshare. When you pay with escrow, the company has an incentive to complete the work it was hired to do. Learn more about escrow and why it’s important here.

Fastest Exit is not a law firm. On the company’s FAQ page it states that most timeshare exits do not need a lawyer. Instead, most exits can be done directly with the resort. If this is true, it begs the question, why would Fastest Exit’s services be needed if an exit can be obtained directly from the resort? Why wouldn’t a timeshare owner simply contact their resort themselves and cancel the timeshare on their own? After all, many timeshare developers now offer “deed back” or “take back” programs that will take a timeshare back when an owner no longer wants it.

Fastest Exit Cost & Fees

Like most timeshare exit companies, the Fastest Exit costs are not available on its website. The company does indicate that it is less expensive that a lawyer.

Fastest Exit Reviews

Fastest Exit reviews are difficult to locate on third party websites around the Internet. There are several reviews on the Fastest Exit website, but it’s typically not a good idea to trust reviews on a company’s own website because most companies only display positive reviews. Video reviews are a bit more trustworthy, but in this case we don’t see any video reviews.

Summary

In summary our recommendation does not change. Work with a timeshare exit company that offers an escrow payment option for extra piece of mind when cancelling your timeshare. Learn more about escrow and why it’s important here.

Timeshare Freedom Group Review

Timeshare Freedom Group is another timeshare cancellation company that may be able to help relieve you of your timeshare ownership. The company has locations all over the United States with several offices in Southern California.

Timeshare Freedom Group claims it has attorneys and advisers that can help you legally and permanently get rid of your timeshare. According to the company’s website, they’ve helped more than 9,500 clients get rid of their timeshare. The domain timesharefreedomgroup.com was registered in November of 2017. This is a bit odd for a company that has claimed to have helped more than 9,500 clients get rid of their timeshare, but perhaps they previously operated under a different domain name?

Timeshare Freedom Group advertises an easy and painless 4-step timeshare exit process. The process doesn’t include much detail, but in general you’re assigned an account manager, your paperwork is processed, and then your timeshare is cancelled. According to the company’s “reviews” page, Timeshare Freedom Group does not take on clients it knows it cannot help. This is a good sign because timeshare exit companies that take on every client regardless of their situation often end up not being able to cancel every timeshare which results in refunds and unhappy customers.

Their FAQ page states the entire process can take 9 to 12 months, but a response from Timeshare Freedom Group on Trustpilot states that the process can take 9 to 18 months. Perhaps the company’s website is  out of date?

This same response from Timeshare Freedom Group on Trustpilot states, “Occidental generally bars all purchased on the secondary market. So a change of ownership is extremely unlikely.” Occidental is a timeshare, so it is always possible to sell it on the resale market. A timeshare company can not “bar” an owner from selling their timeshare. A timeshare company can exercise something called a right of first refusal and take the timeshare back if the owner tries to sell it too cheaply, but a timeshare company cannot “bar” a sale.

It is unclear if this company charges an up-front fee because this is not mentioned anywhere on the website. The company does mention a 100% money-back guarantee though, which usually means there is an up-front fee. On the FAQ page the company states that if your timeshare has not been cancelled after 24 months, you will receive your money back. So there is a guarantee, but you have two wait 2 years to get your money back. A lot can happen in 2 years. For example, the company could get sued by a resort developer and go out of business. If the company goes out of business, there’s a good chance you won’t be getting your money back.

This is why we like to recommend timeshare exit companies that offer an escrow payment option. When you pay with an escrow account, the timeshare exit company does not get paid in full from the escrow account until after your timeshare has been cancelled.

Learn more about escrow and why it’s important here.

Timeshare Freedom Group Cost

Like almost all timeshare exit companies in existence, Timeshare Freedom Group does not display its prices online. Timeshare cancellation is a customized service, so this is to be expected. The company offers two ways to get a quote. You can call in for a free 20-minute consultation and get a quote that way or you may submit an online form on their website without speaking to anyone. If you submit an online form, the Timeshare Freedom Group cost will be sent via email.

Timeshare Freedom Group Reviews

When reviewing the company’s website there is a page that shows several celebrity endorsers that recommend Timeshare Freedom Group’s services. It is unclear if Timeshare Freedom Group paid for these endorsements, but it is unlikely that radio personalities would advertise a company without being paid for air time on their show. Paying for endorsements isn’t necessarily a bad thing, just something to keep in mind.

Like most timeshare exit companies, Timeshare Freedom Group shows several positive testimonials on its website. One thing that sets them apart is their positive reviews on Trustpilot and Yelp. Reviews on Trustpilot are harder to fake than testimonials added on the company’s website itself.

At the end of 2019 and early 2020, it looks like Timeshare Freedom Group received some negative reviews on Yelp. All businesses get negative reviews from time to time. It’s really only a concern when the company does not respond to the negative reviews. In this case, it looks like Timeshare Freedom Group has not responded yet, but the company has responded to other reviews so it is likely they simply have not seen these negative reviews yet.

Oddly, we’re unable to find a BBB page for Timeshare Freedom Group. The address on the company’s contact page is the following:

23046 Avenida De La Carlota Suite 600
Laguna Hills, CA 92653

A search for this address brings up a shared office space. There are several business with a BBB profile with this address, but none are related to timeshare.

Different Company Names?

It is unclear if Timeshare Freedom Group is the same company as Timeshare Freedom LLC. Timeshare Freedom LLC is operating under a few different names and websites including:

• Timeshare-answers.com
• TimeshareFreedomGroup.com
• Integrity Marketing Solutions
• Legaltimesharecancellation.com
• cancelatimeshare.co
• cancelatimeshare.com
• cancel-timeshares.com
• timeshare-help.com
• timesharequestions.com
• timesharecancellation.org

These companies are all connected by the following address:

7350 Futures Drive, Suite 17, Orlando,
Florida 32819

We aren’t sure why Timeshare Freedom LLC has chosen to register so many different domain names and operate under so many different company names. This isn’t something most companies choose to do. This may be a different company entirely though.

Summary

Overall, we still recommend working with timeshare exit companies that offer an escrow payment option, so you are 100% protected from all possible scams. Learn more about escrow and why it’s important here.

Timeshare Compliance Review

Timeshare Compliance is a trustworthy timeshare exit company that may be able to cancel your timeshare even if you still owe a mortgage. The company has been in business since 2012 and is based out of Irvine, California.

When reviewing the company’s website, the main thing that immediately stands out to us is the Escrow payment option. Using an Escrow service to cancel your timeshare is the smartest thing you can do because the timeshare exit company does not get paid in full until after the timeshare has been cancelled. Learn more about 100% money-back vs no up-front escrow here. Timeshare Compliance gets a +1 from us for offering an escrow option.

When reviewing the company’s “Services” page it appears that Timeshare Compliance specializes in helping timeshare owners who feel they were deceived during the sales presentation. This differs from other timeshare exit companies that claim they can simply help anyone who wants to exit. The fact that Timeshare Compliance is selective with the timeshare owners it chooses to work with is a very good sign. In the past, a greedy timeshare exit company by the name of Resort Release took on every single client without any sort of selection process and later went bankrupt because it couldn’t cancel everyone’s timeshare. Timeshare Compliance is selective with its clients because it only wants to work with timeshares it knows it can cancel. 

Get your free consultation from Timeshare Compliance

Working our way over to the Calculator page and we see an interesting tool that helps timeshare owners understand how much money they are truly spending on their timeshare each year. This can be a real eye-opener if you’ve never broken down all of the costs of your timeshare before. With maintenance fees, special assessment fees, exchange fees, membership dues and more, you’re likely not saving money with your timeshare ownership. Give the Calculator took a try for more insight.

The Credit Advocacy page is next. It shows that Timeshare Compliance has chosen to partner with a company called United Doc Prep. This company might be able to assist timeshare owners with document preparation in relation to cancelling a timeshare. It appears to be more of a do-it-yourself option for certain timeshare owners that qualify for its services.

In addition to United Doc Prep, the Credit Advocacy page also talks about services that can help timeshare owners keep an eye on their credit throughout the cancellation process. This is important because you don’t want your credit to be negatively affected when cancelling your timeshare.

Timeshare Compliance Cost & Fees

Like most timeshare exit companies, timeshare compliance cost and fees are not available online. You will need to contact them directly for an accurate quote, as every timeshare situation is different.

Timeshare Compliance Reviews

The company has more than 200 positive reviews on TrustPilot and more than 10 positive reviews on Google. To find Timeshare Compliance on the BBB you’ll need to look for a company by the name of Pandora Marketing LLC because Pandora Marketing LLC is doing business as Timeshare Compliance. Pandora Marketing LLC has an A+ on the BBB as well as more than 50 positive reviews. 

In addition to reviews off-site, Timeshare Compliance also has several reviews on its own website. We like to look for video testimonial reviews because these are generally the most trustworthy, and as of Feb. 2020, Timeshare Compliance has three. See below:

This is a very good sign.

Summery

Overall, Timeshare Compliance is a trustworthy timeshare exit company that we’d recommend using because they are one of the only companies that offers an escrow payment option.

Timeshare Exit Team Review

If you’re looking for Timeshare Exit Team cost and fees you’ve come to the right place. Timeshare Exit Team helps timeshare owners get out of their timeshare commitments. The company has been in business since 2012 and is based in Bellevue, WA.

Timeshare Exit Team is endorsed by popular radio personality, Dave Ramsey and TV personality Steve Harvey, among others. They have 30 locations around the U.S.A. and run radio ads around the country. They are by far one of the largest timeshare exit companies in existence.



Timeshare Exit Team 100% Money-Back Guarantee

When reviewing the homepage we see a mention of a 100% money-back guarantee. A 100% money-back guarantee sounds good, but it doesn’t actually mean anything at all because you must pay the timeshare exit company up-front to begin work. This is an issue because you never know if the timeshare exit company will honor it’s 100% money-back guarantee. The company could simply go out of business and never refund your money.

Several other timeshare exit companies have recently gone out of business. A few of them include:

  • Resort Release
  • AconsumerCredit
  • Castle Law Group
  • UDI Consulting
  • And more.

Each of these companies offered a 100% money-back guarantee, but customers were not able to receive a refund because the company went out of business.

This is why we here at TimeshareExitCompanies.com only recommend timeshare exit companies that offer an escrow payment option. If you pay using an escrow account, the money is held by a third-party escrow company until your timeshare is cancelled. This holds the timeshare exit company accountable and gives them an incentive to complete the work it was hired to do. With escrow, the timeshare exit company does not get paid from the escrow account until AFTER your timeshare has been cancelled.

Timeshare Exit Team Cost

Pinning down an exact cost for Timeshare Exit Team online is going to be hard to do. Fees can sometimes change depending on the type of timeshare you have. Not all resort developers are the same. Some are much harder to work with than others. The only true way to find out the cost of their services is to give them a call and go through a free consultation. During the free consultation you will be provided with an estimated fee to cancel your timeshare. With all of that being said, it is important to point out that a representative from Timeshare Exit Team was quoted in saying the average cost of their timeshare cancellation service is $4,000. This is a good general rule of thumb and is more straight forward than just about any other exit team on the market. Transparency like this says good things about a company.



Always negotiate!

It’s funny how the price can go from $4,000 to $3,900 just by asking for a lower price. Just try it. Everything in life is negotiable. Especially when you’re talking with a commissioned salesmen, which Timeshare Exit Team may or may not have (ask them). A salesperson cans sometimes have a monthly allotment of discount money they are free to work with. This means they are sometimes able to provide you with a discount that depends on how much they have left in the monthly allotment. Always just ask for a discount when  you’re speaking to a sales person. If you don’t ask the answer is always no!

Timeshare Exit Team Dave Ramsey

Dave Ramsey is one of the most respected financial radio personalities in existence. His radio show, The Dave Ramsey Show, is listened to by more than 13 million people each week! He gained his fortune in real estate and is considered an expert in this area. This is one of the reasons why he is a perfect endorser for the Timeshare Exit Team. Dave Ramsey has authored more than 15 books on personal finance and some have even gone on to be listed as best sellers by the New York TimesWall Street Journal and Publishers Weekly. He also runs a class called Financial Peace University that helps everyday citizens become debt free. If Dave Ramsey endorses a company such as Timeshare Exit Team, he is likely doing so only because he fully supports their business practices.

Timeshare Exit Team Steve Harvey

Steve Harvey is also endorsing Timeshare Exit Team on his various TV and radio programs. Steve Harvey is known for giving trustworthy advise, so if he is endorsing a company such as Timeshare Exit Team, he likely has good reason to do so.

Timeshare Exit Team In The News

Update 2/13/2020 – Timeshare Exit Team is one of the largest timeshare exit companies in existence, so it tends to attract the most attention from the law. Just recently a Florida judge ruled that timeshare developer Westgate was unable to prove claims related to false advertising and deceptive/unfair trade practices against Timeshare Exit Team, securing a major win for the company.

Timeshare Exit Team was also in the news recently for a lawsuit with Holiday Inn Club Vacations (HICV) that started back in 2017. Both sides ended up settling. As a result, Orange Lake, a HICV resort, will take back 1,300 timeshares. Another major win for Timeshare Exit Team. Although, HICV says consumers could have cancelled directly through its new Hoizons deed back program without the help of Timeshare Exit Team. One must wonder if HICV’s Horizons program would even exist had it not been for Timeshare Exit Team’s efforts to help timeshare owners exit their timeshares.

Even with these recent wins for Timeshare Exit Team, a Washington Attorney General recently sued Timeshare Exit Team for allegedly deceiving more than 32,000 consumers. The suit claims the company violated the Consumer Protect Act, but Timeshare Exit Team strongly denies these allegations. It seems that lawsuits are just a cost of doing business for Timeshare Exit Team.

We hope this advice helps! Note, 321exit.com is the same company as Timeshare Exit Team, so don’t get confused.

Overall, we still recommend working with timeshare exit companies that offer an escrow payment option, so you are 100% protected from all possible scams. Learn more about escrow and why it’s important here.

Wesley Financial Group Review

Wesley Financial Group is a trusted timeshare exit company that may be able to help you get rid of your timeshare. The company has been in business since 2012, has hundreds of employees, and has offices in both Franklin, TN and Las Vegas, Nevada. 

Wesley Financial Group gets a strong endorsement from us because it has a high rating with Dun & Bradstreet. This is important because it shows that Wesley Financial Group has a high net worth, among other things. A high net worth is important because it shows that Wesley Financial Group is able to keep its promise of a 100% money-back guarantee if the cancellation of your timeshare is not achieved.

Just recently a large timeshare exit company by the name of Resort Release went bankrupt and was not able to keep its promise of a 100% money-back guarantee for hundreds of customers. This further reinforces the significance of the high Dun & Bradstreet rating that Wesley Financial Group was able to obtain.

Chuck McDowell Lawsuit Against Wyndham

Chuck McDowell is the CEO of Wesley Financial Group. He has had a significant impact on the timeshare exit industry because he won a lawsuit against one of the largest timeshare resort developers in existence, Wyndham. The lawsuit was brought by Wyndham against Chuck McDowell for allegedly divulging Wyndham’s trade secrets when helping timeshare owners cancel their timeshares. The jury took only 12 minutes to decide that Chuck McDowell did not divulge Wyndham’s trade secrets, so Chuck McDowell won the case. This was a major step forward for consumers hoping to get rid of their timeshare, and Chuck McDowell took the risk in court against Wyndham to make it happen.

Wesley Financial Group Reviews

Wesley Financial Group has more than 80 positive reviews on Google, more than 200 positive reviews on Trustpilot and more than 25 positive reviews on Best Company. The fact that the company has positive reviews on various websites around the Internet speaks volumes about its legitimacy. Let’s analyze a few reviews to determine their validity. 

This is exactly the kind of review we want to see from a timeshare owner. The timeshare owner, Dan, states that Wesley Financial Group helped him get rid of his Marriott timeshare AND get money back from Marriott. It is not common for a timeshare owner to receive money back after a timeshare cancellation, but Wesley made it happen, and within only two months!

Here is another great review from customer Yyvette Wade. What we like about this review is the owner stating that they did not receive a bad mark on their credit report. Some timeshare exit companies will assist with your timeshare cancellation, but your credit will receive a negative mark. That does not appear to be the case with this customer. 

This positive review was found on Best Company and mentions a Wyndham timeshare cancellation with a debt of a $170,000.  That is an awful lot of money to save a timeshare owner!

Wesley Financial Group reviews also include video testimonials from customers. Video testimonials are the highest level of review a company can receive. Think about it. If a husband and wife is willing to go on camera and endorse a company, they are likely satisfied customers. They aren’t hiding behind a keyboard and they’re willing to put their name out there to express their gratitude for the company’s services. This is another good indication that Wesley Financial Group is a trustworthy company. Have a look at some of these video testimonials here:

Qualification For Services

Unlike other unscrupulous timeshare exit companies, Wesley Financial Group is selective with the timeshare owners it works with. The company will only work with timeshare owners that own timeshare with certain resort developers.

For example, if you own a vacation club rather than a timeshare, Wesley Financial Group won’t be able to assist you. On the bright side, Wesley Financial Group works with more than 300 different timeshare resort developers, so there’s a good chance they’ll be able to help.

Wesley Financial Group Cost

Like almost all timeshare exit companies in existence, Wesley Financial Group does not disclose its cost online. This is understandable because timeshare cancellation is a customized service. Some timeshares are easier to cancel than others. The mortgage balance on the timeshare can also be a factor. You will need to contact Wesley Financial Group directly for an accurate quote, as every timeshare situation is different.

Wesley Financial Group Commercial

This company has run commercials to advertise its services. The commercial features company owner, Chuck McDowell, and two of the company’s satisfied customers. Again, video testimonials from actual customers are always a very positive sign. If the commercial featured paid actors, the company would not be as trustworthy. New commercials from the company mention a website by the name of icanceltimeshare.com. This is a different domain name, but the brand behind it is Wesley Financial Group. icanceltimeshare.com reviews should be one in the same with Wesley Financial Group.

Summary

Typically, we advise timeshare owners to work with timeshare exit companies that offer an escrow payment option to cancel your timeshare because this ensures the timeshare exit company will not take your money up-front and never cancel your timeshare. Wesley Financial Group does not offer an escrow payment option, but we’ve chosen to make an exception with them because of their high Dun and Bradstreet rating.

Wesley Financial Group is not a fly-by-night timeshare exit company that is going to take your money and run. The company has the financial net worth to return your money if it is unable to cancel your timeshare. Overall, Wesley Financial Group is one timeshare exit company that we can recommend for help with your timeshare cancellation.

Timeshare Law Team Review

Timeshare Law Team is another timeshare exit company that may be able to relieve you of your timeshare. The company is located in either Fort Lauderdale, FL, Irving, TX or Myrtle Beach, SC. The address on the Timeshare Law Team website is:

2598 EAST SUNRISE BLVD

FORT LAUDERDALE, FL 33304

But a quick Google search shows this address as a virtual office. A search for the company’s phone number brings up a BBB page for a company by the name of Resort Placement Services that lists Timeshare Law Team and Resort Exit Group as an alternate business name. The address for Resort Placement Services is in Irving, TX and the address for Resort Exit Group is Myrtle Beach, SC.

When reviewing Timeshare Law Team’s homepage, the first thing that stands out to us is the mention of a “money-back guarantee.” Most timeshare exit companies offer a “100% money back guarantee” or a “100% satisfaction guarantee”, but this doesn’t really mean anything at all. If there is a money back guarantee, that means the exit company would like for you to pay them upfront for its cancellation service.

We like to recommend timeshare exit companies that offer an escrow payment option so the timeshare exit company isn’t paid in full until after the timeshare is cancelled. Learn more about escrow and why it’s important here.

Moving over to the testimonials page and we see several positive testimonials. Many testimonials mention Resort Exit Group rather than Timeshare Law Team even though we are on the Timeshare Law Team website, so Resort Exit Group is likely the primary name of this business.

It’s important to look at reviews of a company outside of its own website because most companies only display positive reviews on their own website. We can’t find any reviews for Timeshare Law Team, but there are a few for Resort Exit Group.

Timeshare Law Team Reviews (Resort Exit Group Reviews)

Resort Exit Group reviews on the BBB are all very positive. The company has an A+ rating with the BBB as well. We are not able to find any other Resort Exit Group reviews or Timeshare Law Team reviews online.

Timeshare Law Team Cost (Resort Exit Group Cost)

Like all timeshare exit companies, the Timeshare Law Team cost and Resort Exit Group cost are not available online. You’ll need to contact the company directly to obtain a quote for its services.

Summary

While the reviews for Timeshare Law Team and Resort Exit Group are positive, the company does not mention an escrow payment option anywhere on its website. Our recommendation is to consider a timeshare exit company with an escrow payment option so the company has an incentive to complete the cancellation of your timeshare. You do not want to pay an exit company up front only to find out later that they’ve taken your money and never cancelled your timeshare. Learn more about escrow and why it’s important here.

TS Elimination Review

TS Elimination is yet another company that claims it can help you get out of your timeshare. The company has been in business since 2015 and is located in Las Vegas, NV.

When reviewing the homepage the first thing that stands out to us is the mention of a 100% guarantee. TS Elimination promises to get you out of your timeshare or give you 100% of your money back. If TS Elimination promises to give you your money back, the company must want you to pay them up front before canceling your timeshare.

We here at TimeshareExitCompanies.com like to recommend timeshare exit companies that allow timeshare owners to pay using an escrow payment option so the timeshare exit company does not get paid from the escrow account until after your timeshare is cancelled. Learn more about escrow and why it’s important here.

Heading over to the FAQ page and nothing alarming stands out. The company says it typically takes 3 to 9 months to cancel a timeshare with no mortgage and if you owe a mortgage it typically takes longer. This is in-line with other timeshare exit companies in the industry.

The testimonials page is filled with positive testimonials which is great but doesn’t really mean anything. It is extremely rare for a company to post negative testimonials on its website. That is why it is typically better to look at third party review websites.

 TS Elimination Reviews

TS elimination reviews on the BBB are positive. The company has 48 reviews with 5 complaints as of 11/15/19. There are a few negative reviews on the BBB, but all have an answer from TS Elimination. Negative reviews typically relate to customers claiming TS Elimination did not return their call. There is also a negative review on a site called Complaints Base but it is difficult to verify the authenticity of this anonymous negative review.

TS Elimination Cost & Fees

TS Elimination costs are not available online. This is very common in the timeshare exit industry. No company displays its costs online. However, sometimes a cost can be found by reading reviews of others. In this case, we see one person on the BBB mention that it costs $9,000 for them to get rid of their timeshare with TS Elimination. Another customer mentions paying $5,645.

Summary

Overall, our recommendation does not change. We recommend working with a timeshare exit company that offers an escrow payment option. When you pay with escrow, the timeshare cancellation company does not get paid until after your timeshare is cancelled. Learn more about escrow and why it’s important here.

Heartland Transfer Review

Heartland Transfer is a timeshare exit company located in Crown Point, IN that may be able to help with your timeshare exit. The company has been in business since 2012 and is the same company as Go Away Timeshare that we previously reviewed.

Having a look at the homepage of their website and a few things stand out. Under “The Truth About Timeshare” headline we see that the company says, “the only place timeshare gets sold is in those high-pressure timeshare presentations.” This is sort of true, but some timeshares are in fact sold on the timeshare resale market quite frequently. For example, Disney Vacation Club is a great timeshare product that is commonly sold on the resale market. Some timeshares in Hawaii are also commonly sold on the resale market as well.

Moving over to the “What’s my timeshare worth?” headline and we see that Heartland Transfer recommends timeshare owners go to Ebay and Craigslist to get an idea of how much their timeshare is worth. This is good advice that we also recommend. If other timeshare owners are advertising their units at the same resort that you own at for $1 on Ebay and Craigslist and no one is bidding, then you have a good idea of how much your timeshare is worth on the resale market (hint – likely nothing).

Moving down the homepage and looking at the section under “Some of the companies we have worked with…”, we see that Heartland Transfer claims it has worked with timeshare resort developers including Wyndham, Westgate, RCI, Marriott, and Holiday Inn. Heartland displays the logo of these timeshare resort developers on its website, which is generally not a good idea because it can get them sued.

Heading over to the testimonials page and we see a video “testimonial” that isn’t really a testimonial. Instead, it is a video of timeshare owners who have just signed up with Heartland Transfer at one of Heartland’s in-person seminars. Hate to break it you Heartland Transfer, but it’s not a testimonial if you haven’t performed any services for your new client yet.

Moving over to the About page and we see one of the company’s owners talking about the story behind Heartland Transfer. Similar to the story on the Go Away Timeshare website, the owners bought a timeshare and had difficulty getting rid of it. They eventually figured out how to get rid of their timeshare and then opened a timeshare exit company to help others get out as well.

Heartland Transfer Cost

Like virtually all timeshare exit companies in existence, the Heartland Transfer cost is not available only. If you’re looking for Heartland Transfer cost and fees, you’ll need to give them a call.

Heartland Transfer Reviews

Heartland Transfer reviews around on the Internet are mix of positive and negative. The company has an A+ on the BBB as well as 35 positive reviews, but there is one negative review on Yelp and one negative review on Google as of 10/10/19. The negative Google review complains of poor communication and the negative Yelp review mentions that that the 100% money-back guarantee is worthless. There also seems to be some negative reviews on a website called Revdex where owners complain of an attorney Heartland Transfer previously worked with. It appears that Heartland no longer works with this attorney, so this is likely not a big deal in 2019.

Overall, our recommendation does not change. We like to recommend timeshare exit companies that offer an escrow payment option, so they don’t get paid until after the timeshare is cancelled. Learn more about escrow and why it’s important here.

Global Business Consultants Timeshare Scam

This is a short blog post to warn timeshare owners about a new timeshare scam being carried out by a company calling themselves Global Business Consultants. The company has an F on the BBB along with 3 complaints.

According to online reviews and customers who have contacted us, Global Business Consultants contacts timeshare owners out of the blue and offers them a ridiculously high price for their timeshare. Usually, this scam is used for timeshares in Mexico. Global Business Consultants will tell you to wire them money for some sort of international transfer fee, and then your timeshare will be sold. This will not happen. You will transfer the fee, and never hear from them again.

This is the oldest scam in the book when it comes to timeshare resales. The truth is, most timeshares lose most of their value the second they are purchased. Timeshare is not an investment. This is why you can find many timeshares on for sale by owner sites like Ebay for sale for $1 with no one buying them.

Because timeshares are so difficult to sell, many owners have turned to timeshare exit companies to cancel their timeshare. These companies work with lawyers to get your timeshare cancelled. For more information on how to cancel your timeshare with a timeshare exit company, initiate live chat, submit a contact form on the right side of the page or give us a call.

Preferred Cancellation Services Review

Preferred Cancellation Services is another timeshare exit company that may be able to help you cancel your timeshare. The company has been in business since 2014 and is based in Daytona Beach, FL.

When reviewing the company’s homepage, we see that PCS does not use lawyers to cancel your timeshare. Instead, the company claims that its process can get timeshare owners out of their timeshares without costly attorneys. This is becoming more common in the timeshare exit industry, so it’s not necessarily a red flag. However, the following statement made on Preferred Cancellation Services’ homepage is a red flag:

 “If we do not get you released within one years time you will receive a full refund at that time upon request”

This means timeshare owners must pay Preferred Cancellation Services up front to cancel their timeshare. We here at TimeshareExitCompanies.com do not like timeshare owners paying a timeshare exit or resale companies up front because the company could take your money and never cancel or sell your timeshare and never provide you with a refund. Just because a company says it will give you a refund doesn’t mean it will.

We typically recommend that timeshare owners use an escrow payment option when cancelling their timeshare. When you pay with escrow, the timeshare exit company is not paid in full until after your timeshare has been cancelled. Learn more about escrow and why it’s important here.

Heading over to the FAQ page and we see one thing that we like. Under question 6, the company states that getting money back after a timeshare cancellation is a rarity. We agree with this statement. Sometimes timeshare exit companies claim they can get you money back after cancelling your timeshare, but this is almost always NOT the case.

Heading over the Our Attorney page and we see that PCS works with a lawyer by the name of Richard J. D’Amico, Esq. The company makes it clear that this lawyer does not represent its clients, but instead represents PCS instead. Either way, this lawyer does not have any notable negative reviews that we could find.

Preferred Cancellation Services Reviews

As of 7/29/19, Preferred Cancellation Services reviews on Google are quite positive. 36 people praise the company’s services. The reviews look legitimate enough. We did find one negative review on the company’s BBB page under their LLC name of Windham Ventures LLC, but the review was addressed and responded to by PCS.

Preferred Cancellation Services Cost

Like all timeshare exit companies, the Preferred Cancellation Services cost is not available online. The only way to obtain the company’s cost is to contact the company for a consultation.

Summary

Overall, our recommendation does not change. Although Preferred Cancellation Services looks like a legitimate company from the outside, you never really know what’s going on behind the scenes. This is why we like to recommend using a timeshare exit company that offers an escrow payment option. Escrow can protect you if the company goes out of business or takes your money and never cancels your timeshare. Learn more about escrow and why it’s important here.
