Complaints Policy

 

 

Step-by-step complaints procedure

If you’re not completely happy with our service we’d like to hear about it so we can do something to put it right.
We do everything we can to make sure our customers get the best products and service possible. However, sometimes we may not get things right the first time.
When that happens we want you to tell us what went wrong so we can put matters right.
We want to:

  • Make it easy for you to tell us what went wrong;
  • Give your complaint the attention it deserves;
  • Resolve your complaint fairly without delay; and
  • Make sure you are satisfied with how your complaint was resolved.

If you are not satisfied with any aspect of our service or products you can tell us about your complaint in the following ways:

In person – call into our office at the address shown on or site. We are open Monday to Friday from 10.00am – 5.00pm and from 10.00am – 5.00pm on Saturdays.

How long will it take?

If we can’t agree a solution with you within eight weeks, we will:

  • Send a letter giving our reasons for the delay and an indication of when we expect to provide a final decision.
    OR
  • Issue our final decision letter which will explain our final position.

Our aim is to resolve all complaints internally. However if after receiving our final decision letter, or if eight weeks have passed, you may have the right to refer your complaint to the Ombudsman Service. Their contact details are shown below
