We hope that this information is never required. That’s our very clear objective with every Mitchell Glass customer. But of course, it’s important that we make provision for the unthinkable and create a complaints procedure that’s clear, fair and timely.
Complaints are exceptionally important to us, we treat them not as distractions or inconveniences, but as opportunities to learn and to make things better. That’s why, if you’re not happy with anything at all about our products or service, we really do want to know about it.
If you do wish to get in touch with us regarding a complaint, then it’s totally up to you how you do it. We make provision to capture complaints no matter how they might arrive.
Below is further information regarding how to get in touch should you wish to make a complaint.

Clearly, we’ll try and resolve things straight away, we’ll do everything we can in fact, but on occasion this just isn’t possible as a bit of work has to go on behind the scenes to investigate exactly what’s happened, so we can work out how to put it right. Where this is the case, here’s how things will work:
We’ll acknowledge your complaint within 5 working days, either by email or by letter. We’ll tell you the reason why we couldn’t resolve it straight away, who is in charge of dealing with your complaint (your case manager) and how to contact them if you need to.
As we investigate your complaint, we’ll update you every week regarding progress and the next step in the process. Even if there’s nothing further to report, you’ll have the peace of mind that we’re on top of it.
We’ll aim to reach a decision regarding how to proceed regarding your complaint within 2 weeks of it being made. Rest assured that we’ll always tell you if there’s going to be a delay beyond this date. Decisions are always confirmed in writing to you.
We’ll aim to resolve your complaint within 8 weeks of it being made as an absolute maximum. Rest assured that we’ll always tell you if there’s going to be a delay beyond this date.
Where we can’t reach an agreement together, when appropriate we’ll provide you with the relevant information for the Financial Ombudsman Service or the GGF – whichever organisation is most relevant. This is a last resort though and clearly we hope that things never reach this stage.
The Financial Ombudsman Service is there to help consumers with complaints which relate to the sale of financial services. If your complaint is of this nature, you may have the right to refer your complaint to them. Their contact details are below.
