THE refurbished Westpac Bank at Stockland Hervey Bay is offering customers 24 hour banking services to make lives less stressful.

Bank manager Carolyn Hogan said Westpac in Hervey Bay was the 64th branch in Australia to go Bank Now offering customers three new services.

"We have electronic night safe ATMs for customers to deposit money into their accounts 24 hours, seven days a week which most other banks don't offer," she said.

"For our business customers it's really handy to know that they don't have to keep large sum of cash in their premises."

Westpac's other offer is a machine that allows customers to get small notes and coins for their business at any time of the day.

"No other bank in town offers this change machine and our customers here are absolutely loving it and it's a real positive thing for our customers," she said.

"Another cool machine other banks have but don't offer all day and all night is a machine that allows our customers to deposit coins.

"You may have a whole bucket full of coins at home and you can empty the bucket into the machine and it will sort all the coins through and will put it straight to your bank account."

With three new machines for customers, Westpac is giving customers the option to do their banking at their own time.

"It's about seeing the future of banking and insuring that we're giving our customers the best service that we can possibly can," she said.

Westpac bank also offers customers professional advises on loans and business matters.

"They can call professional advisors from Sydney during working hours to get advice on financial matters," Ms Hogan said.

Westpac Bank is located on the ground floor of the Stockland Shopping Centre.
