Client Testimonials | What Our Customers Have To Say

“I use the Belco on Jonestown Road in Harrisburg, everyone there knows you personally and takes care of your banking needs professionally every time, all the time. I needed a business account in 2006 and was forced to bank other places until Belco began to take business accounts. What a difference! Your money is never held for out of town checks, they assist me in payroll and they make money readily available without hesitation. Thank you Belco – Sam, Renee, Jason – you are all a great team!”

Sheena T. – Member of 43 years

“They did a great job. It’s one thing I’m glad I did move to Belco several years ago. Even with our kids, they treat them as a family, not as a customer. Keep up the good work Belco.”

Robert F.

“Anytime I stop in to do a transaction or ask questions, I always receive the BEST customer service from Kathy Keiser at the Belco Big Spring branch. It is clear that she goes above and beyond for customers and always has a smile on her face no matter what day or time you stop in. She is the epitome of a hard worker and I always look forward to seeing her. Thank you, Kathy! Keep up the good work, we appreciate you! Also – Cheryl Reese is just as amazing! Thanks, ladies, keep up the good work!”
