Autorama Group Complaints Procedure
We have an industry leading reputation for our excellent working relationships with our clients and as a result, we very rarely need to adopt a complaints procedure. However, we feel it is vital that we have one in place to ensure our clients have complete peace of mind. It is our intention to resolve any issues quickly, and at the point of initial concern. We understand that there may be instances where a complaint requires escalation, in which case the following procedure will be implemented:
In the event of an unresolved service or quality issue with Autorama UK Ltd, please email email@example.com. If the issue cannot be resolved satisfactorily, Joanne Wilkinson, Customer Service Team Leader, will become involved. All details will be recorded and filed, and we will adopt the following steps in conflict resolution:
We will identify the problem
We will get the perspective of all parties involved (client, finance company, salesperson or any other third party that may be involved)
We will identify options that will satisfy the client's need
We will determine the most appropriate and fair option
We will implement a resolution
We will notify all parties of the action taken
We will identify steps to assure that this conflict will not recur
We will implement appropriate actions
We will review what action steps were taken to resolve conflict with client
We will act with the client, to ensure their satisfaction with the outcome
We will encourage communication to ensure that all channels are open for further feedback on the process taken and the outcome determined. We will apply the following protocol:
The client will notify the Autorama Group Customer Service Team that a concern exists.
If unable to be resolved at this point, The Autorama Group Customer Service Team will notify Joanne Wilkinson, Customer Service Team Leader, of the concern and the matter will be researched.
Joanne Wilkinson will contact the individual involved directly in the sale within two business days. She will then either provide the client with a resolution at that time or explain why more time is needed to identify the best possible solution.
If the client is not satisfied with the proposed resolution, Joanne Wilkinson will elevate the issue to Kate Cullen, Administration Manager.
In summary, we feel we can confidently provide a service of the highest quality across all aspects of vehicle leasing.
