CSS Telecoms Complaints Procedure
CSS Telecoms are fully committed to providing our customers with outstanding levels of service, but from time to time we understand that you may be unhappy with certain aspects of the services we provide.
With this in mind, we have developed a Complaints Procedure which clearly sets out what you need to do if you have a complaint.
The Complaints Procedure is described below.
If you would like to make a complaint about our service, here are the methods by which we hope to be able to resolve your complaint as quickly as possible:
Phone: 01928 444101 Monday to Friday between 09:00 and 17:00 hours
Post: Fao Customer Service Department, CSS Telecoms, 72A Townfield Lane, Frodsham, Cheshire, WA6 7RL
Please ensure that whichever method you choose to contact us, that you have the following information in order for us to deal with your complaint as efficiently as possible:
• Company name and account number (located on any of your invoices)
• Name, contact phone number and postal address
• Nature of the complaint, including any relevant detail
Once we have logged all of the details of your complaint, we aim to supply you with our initial response within 5 workings days, and resolve all complaints within 20 working days from when you notify us, with more complex cases taking longer.
Taking further action
If we have not been able to resolve your complaint to your satisfaction within 40 working days from when you notified us, we will send you a letter confirming this.
This letter is normally referred to as a “deadlock letter” and confirms that there is nothing more we can do with respect to your complaint.
When you have received the deadlock letter from us, you may wish to refer the complaint to one of the following two organisations.
Office of Communications The Office of Communications (Ofcom) if you are a large business
The Ombudsman Service is appropriate if you are a small business
