Complaints

 

If you have any questions or concerns about your policy or the handling of a claim you should, in the first instance, contact the Insurance Broker who arranged your insurance.

However, if you remain dissatisfied and wish to make a complaint you can do so at any time by referring the matter to Commercial Express.

You can contact us by:
• Telephone - 0800 978 8007
• Email - complaints@commercialexpress.co.uk
• In writing - Compliance Manager, Commercial Express, B1 Custom House, The Waterfront, Level Street, Brierley Hill, DY5 1XH

Where a complaint arises we will, wherever possible, endeavour to resolve the matter by no later than the close of business the third working day following receipt. If this is not possible, to enable us to remedy the situation in a speedy and efficient manner, we have a documented, formal complaints procedure, details of which are shown below.

1) We will acknowledge your complaint promptly, to reassure you that we will be dealing with the issue as a matter of urgency, giving you the details of who will be handling the matter in our office, and details of the service of the Financial Ombudsman Service, where this applies.

2) In the event that your complaint relates to activities or services provided by another party, we will advise you of this in writing within five working days giving the reasons for our decision and ensure that your complaint is promptly forwarded to the appropriate party, in writing.

3) We will aim to make a final response to you as soon as is practicable, and keep you reasonably informed as to progress. We anticipate that we will be able to provide a substantive response to most complaints within eight weeks.

4) By the end of eight weeks from receipt of your complaint, we will issue you with our final response, or issue a response that gives the reasons for the delay and indicates when we will be able to provide a final response. If you are dissatisfied with our response, or the delay at this time, you will have a period of six months in which you can refer the matter to the Financial Ombudsman Service, whose details are shown below.

When we provide our final response letter, we will endeavour to ensure that we have taken into consideration any financial losses, or material inconvenience you may have suffered. If we do not feel that your complaint is justified, we will advise you of the reasons for our decision and we will also advise how you may pursue the complaint if you remain dissatisfied.
