In writing: Customer Services Manager West Coast Motors Benmhor
Campbeltown Argyll PA28 6DN
You should give as much information as possible including:
the date and time of your journey, the number, route and direction of the bus you travelled on and if possible, the registration number of the bus.
When you submit your complaint, please let us know how you would like us to respond (by email, post or by telephone).
We will accept complaints from any individual dissatisfied with our services or from a third party acting on that person’s behalf with their consent. Anonymous complaints will be passed to the Managing Director and any anonymous complaints, written or verbal, which are considered unacceptable, such as those containing threats, are abusive or contain foul or derogatory remarks will not be pursued further and if appropriate may be reported to the police.
Customer complaints will be investigated by the Customer Services Manager who shall endeavour to remedy the complaint or issue an apology where necessary.
Complaints may be submitted via letter, email or telephone and should be made within 7 working days of the incident. An acknowledgement letter, confirming receipt of the complaint, will normally be issued within 7 working days and will explain what investigation needs to take place.
The Customer Services Manager will review all files in relation to the matter and issue a decision within 4 weeks of receipt of the complaint. Where this is not possible, an interim reply will be issued setting out the reasons for the delay in responding.
Where a Customer Complaint relates to a specific member of staff, we will investigate and take action as appropriate. Where a mistake has been made an apology and explanation will be offered and every effort will be made to rectify the matter.
Where a complaint highlights that our processes or procedures are inadequate, every effort will be made to remedy the situation as quickly as possible.
If you are not satisfied with the response of the Customer Service Manager you may lodge an appeal with the Managing Director.
