It took me 18 years of business before I elected to accept credit cards. In fact, after initially speaking with Aaron it took me another year to make up my mind. Aaron was patient with me and casually followed up during this time. Overall dealing with Aaron was easy. Paperwork was straightforward and the process was automated to the extent that it took very little of my time. More importantly, one of my concerns is that whomever I deal with be a long term player in the processing business. Homegauge appears to have taken a long term position with Aaron, giving me some comfort he will be there if I need him down the road.
I recommend Aaron and Guardian Financial if you are shopping for a processing company. www.southernhomeinspections.co

Ben was great helping me to fix a problem I had inadvertently created. Starting a business can be very trying especially when navigating through unknown territory. Ben made it simple for me and was very kind. Thank you so much! www.kandshi.com Sandy Owczar with K&S Home Inspections Winnipeg
I'm a new home inspector and really wanted to build my business for 2 inspections per day 5-6 days a week right out of the gate. Securing the proper technical training, marketing programs and business processes can be like drinking from a fire hose anytime you deploy all there at the same time. On the business processes side I wanted to use ISN for total integration from order entry, to reporting software integration and finally credit card processor integration. Well all was going great until I realized that my standard PayPal Business account would not integrate and they wanted much higher fees for PayPal Pro. In comes Guardian and Ben Tolman to my rescue! Not only is Guardian's fees less than my free PayPal Business account, but with Ben's help the integration to ISN only took me about 30 minutes tops. From account creation to ISN template modification and remember this is my first week using ISN! I also opened and integrate my business checking account with Guardian the same day. Now I can finally focus on doing quality home inspections for my clients and let Guardian keep the money flowing into my bank account. www.homecheckpi.com Don Shaw with HomeCheck Property Inspections Tifton, GA
The Guys at Guardian walked us through the entire process of setting up our account from start to finish. We are looking forward to a long relationship. www.aproalliance.com Steve with A-Pro Alliance Spanish Fort, AL
Finding a company to accept credit cards through was a bit overwhelming in the beginning as I was afraid of fees and contracts etc. Signing up with Guardian was easy from the beginning. Their simple explanation of cost and no contract put me at ease to ask for more information. After reviewing the final details it was even more simple than I imagined; and the low-cost is true! I had clear and simple directions and guidance to assist me from beginning to end. The website used to manage the account is perfectly simple as well, I honestly could not be more pleased! www.certifiedpropertyinspectionsfl.com

Credit Card processing in the AmeriSpec Management System provides efficient service to our customers, agents & inspectors.
87% of our inspections complete payment authorizations in advance, freeing the inspector for better service to our customers and their agents.
Guardian set up our processing with very competitive rates, prompt processing and the ability to complete subsequent charges when necessary. Their payments can be synced to Quick Books for accounting automation and efficiency. We highly recommend them. www.amerispec.net Charles Lyday with Amerispec Deerfield, FL

Ben and the team at Guardian Financial were wonderful to work with. This was my first time setting up an account of this type online and he was there to personally walk me through any questions I had. I would highly recommend Guardian Financial to anyone looking for this type of service. Not only is their customer service outstanding, they also have the best rates available. www.boldcityhi.com Jeff DeMarco with Bold City Home Inspections Atlantic Beach, FL
My experience with Guardian Financial has been excellent from the first time I spoke with Aaron on the phone. I am in the middle of starting a business and the last thing I wanted was another week long project of having to figure something out.
Guardian made the process of opening my merchant account simple, quick, and easy. Every time I emailed with a question in those first few days, I had an almost instantaneous reply.
Their communications were always very detailed, explaining everything I needed to know about the different parties involved in my credit card transactions.
I’m very satisfied with their rates and highly recommend their service. You’ve got enough on your plate, let Guardian do some heavy lifting for you. www.4sonshomeinspection.com Kristofer with 4 Sons Home Inspection Spring HIll. TN
My experience was not what I expected when I decided to set up an account to except credit cards for my business. The process has been nothing short of inspiring to see that customer service has not been lost but has been taken to a new level. I have never had any business relationship were I had questions but didn't have to ask. They were anticipated and answered before I could think of them. That is a true sign of experience and dedication. Thanks for all your efforts. www.allcoveredhomeinspection.com Dana Stringer with All Covered Home Inspection Woodstock, GA
Guardian Financial has been an exceptional choice for my business from the beginning. I was referred to Guardian by a friend who had nothing but positive words
to say regarding the service he has been provided through them. I made one inquiry to obtain rates and to learn more about Guardian. With in the same day I was contacted by Ben Tolman of Guardian. Ben not only explained everything I wanted to hear but he quickly followed through with what he claimed. Running a small business like mine it is difficult to manage all aspects financially and spend the time to find the " best option" for your financial needs. What I found through Guardian was not only proficiency setting up my account but I truly feel like I am part of a team of professionals which makes my company that much better. Ben was consistent with his follow up and made my choice one of the easiest transactions I have had to make with a start up company. My recommendation goes without saying, Guardian works for you and would be a plus to any company starting up or already vested. Thank you Ben and the entire Guardian family for making me feel like My small company matters.

As a new business owner, I knew that it was important to have a credit card clearing company that had my best interests in mind. I was directed to Guardian Financial by the HomeGuage team (a home inspection software reporting system). Ben promptly set me up and within a few days I was up and running. The best part about using Guardian Financial was the competitive rates and ease of use.
I would recommend Guardian Financial for those setting up their business for the first time. It is great having Guardian Financial as a business partner www.myhi.biz Russell Newsom with My Home Inspection Lehi, UT

I would highly recommend Guardian Financial, and look forward to continued business together.

I have used several credit card processing services over the years and most recently I have been using Square. I switched to Guardian based on recommendations from other home inspector that have used Guardian. The main reason for switching is their seamless operation with Inspection Support Network (ISN), with my other provider I did not have this. Switching over to Guardian was extremely easy, the information that was provided made the entire process painless. I’m sure I will be pleased with their services as it has been great so far and I can recommend Guardian to anyone looking for a credit card processing service. www.traceinspections.com Scott Patterson with Trace Inspections Nashville, TN
It was seamless. So, nice not to have issues or confusion. Thanks! www.a2zcolorado.com

As I set up my online presence I wanted a very smooth customer experience. I wanted people to be able to log on to my website www.izonhouz.com and learn about our service, be able to order our service, esign a contract, book an appointment and pay for our home inspection service. To do the later I needed an easy to integrate and proven financial partner that could securely take payments online and via my smart phone. I chose Guardian financial because they came highly recommended by my website and software provider HomeGauge. Guardian financial made the set up and test process so easy and in less than a few days I am up and running. I highly recommend Guardian and their solution if you are looking for a way to take electronic payments. www.izonhouz.com Simon Eastwick with Izon Houz Inspections The Woodlands, TX
