We are using Visa-go www.visa-go.com . Very helpful and cost I think is 1,800 paid as you go, price includes all doc certification but not TRA/visa/ Meds.
Some TRA goes to Vetassess see link
also changes to visa

GO MATILDA ARE DEFINITELY THE BEST - GET THEM @ WWW.GOMATILDA.CO.UK - ASK FOR LORRAINE SHE'S LOVELY AND SHE'LL RING TO SPEAK TO YOU IN PERSON AT NO COST TO YOU.
HAVE YOU TRIED LEGAL ADVICE ABOUT GETTING SOME OF YOUR MONEY BACK, THAT SOUNDS LIKE YOU WERE TOALLY RIPPED OFF - I'D FIGHT FOR SOMETHING BACK IF I WERE YOU. BET YOUR CONFIDENCE IN AGENTS IS SHATTERED BUT TRY GM THEY WON'T LET YOU DOWN
ALL THE BEST TO YOU ALL
We also using Go Matilda, Lorraine in the UK and Shaun for TRA. Both have been excellent, loads of preliminary assessment forms to fill in but then everything done for you! All we did on the visa form was sign it in a few places. They have been fantastic!
We aren't using an agent. Don't see why we should tbh. Any questions can be answered on forums like this and so long as you give more info than you think is needed there shouldn't be a problem. It seems like an awful lot of money to pay someone to fill forms out.
We are not using agents either and havent had a problem so far, we just thought a few days ( and quite a few evenings research) online was worth a £1500 saving, having said that if i did it at my own pace i would still be sorting out my TRA, fortunately my wife cracks the whip.

:( OH ****E where have you been ..? we got f#####ked by that crowd too , and thought we had put enough tips out on various sites about this bunchI'm so so sorry for you , and can totally relate to how your feeling....don't don't give up ,you are in a far better circumstance than us so be brave and just do it yourself , all you need to do is speak english and do exactly what is asked. it's not in your hands after that.! we fought them for ages and got about half our money back. we got lots of pm's from people giving support but in the end it was losing site of what was important.... australia. if i was loaded i would have fought untill the bitter end but unfortunatly i'm also fighting time so move on and think logically. It's a shame that these bas###ds spoil the rep of good agent's.W e spoke to a few after but were so far ahead with the tra stuff that we thuoght stuff it lets look into it ourselves... hard work but worth it.! and for everything you don't know well just ask on here as every one on this site will help if they can. If you don't want to do it yourselves well then use someone with a fixed rate, Lisa gave us a list of names that were recomended to her on here so we phoned them all up... we liked all of them but Go matilda were really helpful. good luck Stu.;)
Hi we are thinking of using ASA seem to have been helpfull so far!
With regards to the TRA if you are on the list of trades that are changing and havent got your TRA approved yet then you will have to be quick or you will have to have the trade test, and the cost will be higher if you already have you TRA then i think your ok., the trades are things like capenter plumber etc. but not all are included as mine isn't and i'm a hairdresser so its business as usual so far!
