Most of the time buying and servicing a car is a smooth and easy process. However, occasionally things do go wrong. Most of the time, these things can be addressed by your point of contact or their immediate manager within the department you’re dealing with.
If you’re not satisfied with how your concern has been handled and would like to make a complaint, the first point of contact should be the Head of Department that you have been dealing with. Their details are below:
Automotive Hub Ltd
35 Trinity Street
The person investigating the complaint will contact you within 48 hours (depending on the complaint this could be sooner) to confirm their contact details and provide any immediate update.
We will do our best to resolve the complaint as soon as possible. If it is not resolved immediately, we will update you every 5 days. Whilst the Motor Ombudsman advises to allow 8 weeks to resolve a complaint, we would aim to resolve and confirm the outcome in writing within 4 weeks.
If you are not satisfied with the outcome of your complaint, you can appeal this outcome to the Director of the business who will review your complaint and respond within 48 hours to acknowledge your complaint. We ask an appeal is lodged within 48 hours of receiving an outcome from the head of the department.

If the Director cannot resolve your complaint immediately, we will update you every 5 days.
We will aim to give you a final outcome quickly and not more than 8 weeks from when the initial complaint was raised with the business.
Where your complaint cannot be resolved, once you have exhausted our internal process and received a final written response you may refer the dispute to one of the following Alternate Dispute Resolution (ADR) processes.
