Complaints policy

Tell us if you’re not happy with our service

We think great customer service helps make great insurance, but we know we don’t always get everything right. If things do go wrong we’ll do our best to clear things up quickly and fairly.

We always endeavour to provide the best service and products for our customers. However, on rare occasions, we recognise that there may be times where our customers may not be completely satisfied. To ensure we are able to put things right as soon as we can, please read our complaints procedure below and we will respond promptly to ensure complete satisfaction.
As soon as possible after the completion of the works, please inspect the work to ensure everything has been carried out to our usual high standards. In the unlikely event there is anything you are not completely satisfied with, please contact us as soon as you can, so that we can rectify any problems as soon as possible.

Here’s how we deal with complaints, how long it takes, and who to get in touch with.
