Our Customer Complaints Procedure

ECCS offers a policy in respect of customer complaints. This policy is to attempt to bring about a mutually agreeable conclusion

There are comprehensive stages involved in our customer complaints policy and each stage is an important part of the process in achieving a successful outcome for all parties and so must be followed

We must advise that we cannot become involved in any complaint if:

  1. Any matter has already resulted in a claim being submitted to any Court in the UK for resolution or any other dispute resolution service and irrespective of whether the Court proceedings are on-going or have already been adjudicated;
  2. If any incident has already resulted in a claim being submitted to an insurance company, either yours or the member sweeps, for resolution, irrespective of whether this claim is on-going or has been decided and
  3. If any matter has been referred by either party to the police.

Stage One

The first stage if you wish to make a complaint is to contact us and put your concerns in writing. This gives us an opportunity to resolve the matter with you. You will appreciate that we may not be aware of any issue you may have and so once notified of this, we may be prepared to resolve the situation to your full satisfaction.

When putting your concerns in writing please be precise about the exact issues you have, when these occurred and what rectification you would like. This will aid us in deciding how best to resolve the situation. So that we can look into your complaint please provide to us the following information
