Complaint handling and resolution process
We are committed to providing you with the best value residential telecommunications service in the UK. We understand that faults can occur, and when they do, we want to correct them quickly. We provide a comprehensive complaint handling process to solve your problem as soon as possible.
When you call us on 0800 888 6020, a customer service adviser will note the details of the problem and will agree a course of action with you. Due to the complex nature of some queries, these may take a little longer to resolve. If you are not happy with the response you receive you may ask for the matter to be referred to a senior manager for further investigation.
In the rare event that we are unable to resolve your problem we will write to you informing you of the position. This is sometimes called the ‘deadlock’ letter. When you receive this letter, you have the right to refer your case to CISAS, also if after three months from first making the complaint and you do not hear from us you can contact CISAS. The deadline to bring the complaint is nine months after first making the complaint. CISAS’ contact details can be found below. CISAS will want to ensure that you have followed this process before contacting him. If this is not evident CISAS is likely to refer the matter back to Get Business Solutions Limited for resolution.
An application to the CISAS does not relieve you from any obligation you may have to pay any amounts not in dispute.
Get Business Solutions Limited is a member of CISAS, which provides a free, independent, service to help sort out complaints when customers and telecoms companies can’t agree. Their job is to investigate complaints fairly, listen to both sides of the story and look at the facts. If CISAS decides your complaint was justified, Get Business Solutions Limited will honour their decision and put things right for you. Email: email@example.com
Address: CISAS Centre for Effective Dispute Resolution
