Rockwell Debt Collection Debt Collectors is a debt purchasing company or debt collecting company listed in the website of the DBSG (The Debt Buyers and Sellers Group) and/or mentioned in consumer finance forms. They have a legitimate function as debt collectors, but there is some indication that some such companies (not necessarily Rockwell Debt Collection), and especially the debt purchasing element, go a bit too far sometimes and can make people’s lives a misery when those same people are at their most vulnerable. We do not suggest that they are acting outside the law, but getting that letter or phone call is not exactly helpful to you right now.
Read what to do if you can’t pay back your debt.
So the first thing you must do if Rockwell Debt Collection is bothering you is not to panic or despair. That’s just what they want! They’d love you to call their number and speak to their specially trained sales team for ‘advice’. But once you do that you’ll be suggestible to whatever they tell you, instead of getting independent advice. While we always say that you should keep an open dialogue with debt collectors, we would recommend that you do so in writing only. This will prevent them ‘railroading’ you into any action which is not in your best interests, as they so love talking people into doing things on the spur of the moment. Of course, they are only doing their job, but that’s hardly a consolation for you in the present situation.

Alternatives to Rockwell Debt Collection
There are several courses that are open to you, and some will suit your own situation better than others.
A sensible option, we would suggest, is a debt management plan or even an IVA – which is designed to actually write off a large chunk of your unsecured debt. But you would need to take advice on this and look at your income and expenditure in detail. This option won’t suit everyone. There’s more on this below.
For an alternative type of loan you could apply for a ‘logbook loan’ which many people find a very handy option. It is actually a loan secured on your car, except you get to keep the car and keep the cash as well! That’s why some people find it such a good idea, as it unlocks the equity in your vehicle without taking away your means of transport (there’s no need to sell the car). To apply for a logbook loan click here.
Yet another option is a no credit-check guarantor loan. This is especially useful because your own credit rating is not looked at; you must find someone else willing to act as a guarantor for you such as a friend or family member. This is an ideal solution if you’re at the stage where your credit profile has been downgraded by recent events, etc. So click the following link for Unsecured Loans that don’t need you to be credit checked.
If you wanted to try a debt management plan, then we provide a whole-of-market service, with a number of debt management experts on our panel. So whatever your circumstances, your application will find the plan for you, meaning the optimum outcome for your situation. It also means there are no minimum requirements for debt levels or income.
So apply for a debt management plan using the form below.

Rockwell and the Truth About Your Debt
Rockwell Debt Collectors Limited is a debt collecting agency that has bought the debt from the original lender (or in some cases another debt collecting agency) for a small percentage of the original value of the account and is brazenly attempting to get the full sum of the original from you.
Rockwell Debt Collectors Ltd will use all sorts of methods to get money out of you in order to profit from you. You may already have experienced bad and terrifying experiences of them. They may phone you at strange times when they know it is inconvenient for you and on an unacceptably numerous number of occasions. They may send you official-appearing sternly drafted letters or cards threatening to send people round and collect the money in full or that they will take you to court for the full amount. Other strategies may include saying that they will make a charging order on your home or in some way bring about your homelessness or destitution.
So ask Rockwell for a copy of the original contract when you took out your loan or credit card.
To find out if you qualify for an IVA or can benefit from a debt management programme, try the IVA Test. It’s free to apply, and again you are protected by the consumer laws regarding debt management at all stages. Click here to go to the application form.
