Complaint Handling

What is a complaint?

A complaint is an expression of dissatisfaction whether justified or not. Sometimes a problem can be resolved quickly, simply by speaking to a member of our staff or a manager in the relevant department. However, if the member of staff considering the matter believes that a more substantive review will be required in order to respond to the issues raised, your complaint will be considered under the formal complaint procedure.

If you wish to raise an issue or complaint to Motor Outlet Ltd

At Motor Outlet Ltd we believe that if a customer wishes to register a concern or make a complaint they should find it easy to do so. Our policy is to welcome complaints and look upon them as an opportunity to provide better customer service in the future. Our policy is to ensure that complaints are dealt with quickly professionally and consistently and that all comments made by customers are taken seriously and acted upon.

If you have any concerns regarding your vehicle or the service you have received these should be raised with our Service Centre in the first instance, contact details can be found on our homepage. The Service Centre will take full details of the issue and arrange for the vehicle to be inspected at the earliest opportunity.

An acknowledgement of your complaint will usually be sent to you within 5 working days. We will keep you updated and let you know when we expect to be able to reply in full. Complaints received are logged and analysed for business improvement.

Following receipt of the complaint Motor Outlet Ltd will launch an investigation and within 28 days should be in a position to provide a full explanation to the complainant. This will be provided either in writing or by arranging a meeting with the customer (where appropriate). If your complaint is too complex to complete the investigation within 28 days, you will be informed of any delays as soon as this is apparent. If we cannot resolve your complaint within 8 weeks, you may refer your dispute to the Financial Ombudsman Service. This service is free to use.
