Snows strive to ensure that the experience of buying, leasing or servicing and maintaining a vehicle is always as smooth as possible. However, in what we know can be a stressful transaction, occasionally things may not always go according to plan. With this in mind, we have a rigorous process to ensure any problems that may arise are resolved as quickly as possible.
All Snows colleagues treat customer satisfaction very seriously and you have our assurance that we will endeavour to resolve any concerns with your best interests in mind.
If you wish to get in touch with us directly in order to address any issues or queries that you may have faced, please select from the links below:
In the first instance we try to resolve any issues within the dealership by involving the people who know you and your vehicle best. Please initially contact the Management team at your local dealership to raise any concerns, the relevant manager will then ensure your complaint is dealt with as effectively as possible.
Logging formals complaints
If you feel that your complaint has not been handled appropriately by the team in the dealership, the Customer Services Team at our Head Office would like to know about it, so that we can ensure it is resolved in a timely manner by a member of our Senior Management team.
On receipt of your complaint, the Customer Service Team will acknowledge your email, at the very latest within three working days. We will then ask the senior management team (for the dealership involved) to investigate and respond accordingly. The relevant individual investigating will contact you directly to discuss your experience in more detail and work with you personally to bring the matter to a satisfactory close.
We genuinely hope that all concerns raised can be settled amicably between us. However, if you remain dissatisfied you may wish to consult The Motor Ombudsman, who provide a free, independent service for dealing with unresolved disputes. Please note, The Motor Ombudsman will not consider your complaint until you have allowed us eight weeks to respond.
