4. How we handle your complaint

We aim to resolve your complaint at the first point of contact or as quickly as possible thereafter. If you are satisfied with our response, we will send you confirmation articulating the mutually agreed resolution and reasoning. At all times you are entitled to seek independent legal advice regarding your options.

In order to investigate your complaint, we may request the following: 

  • your vehicle registration and contract details; 
  • the name of the person at SG Fleet you have been liaising with; 
  • the nature of the complaint; 
  • details of any steps you have already taken to resolve the complaint; 
  • information to support your complaint. 

If you call us to make a complaint, we will ask you to confirm that we have understood your complaint correctly.  We will provide you with the contact information of the person who will assist you and a reference number for your complaint. 

If your SG Fleet representative is unable to resolve your complaint, or you are dissatisfied with the response, it will be escalated internally for further review, in accordance with our Complaints Handling and Dispute Resolution Procedures. 

We will consider the information you have provided to us, our actions in relation to your dealings with us, and any other information relevant to your complaint. In our investigation of your complaint, we may need to seek further clarification or information from you to assist in resolving your complaint. 

We always aim to resolve complaints as quickly as reasonably possible, however, some complaints may take longer to resolve due to the complexity of the complaint. If we think your complaint is likely to take longer than 30days to resolve, we will advise you of this and explain why it is taking longer, what is happening, and when you can expect a response.  

Once we have finalised your complaint, we will advise you of our findings, the reasons for those findings and any action we have taken or propose to take. We will do this in writing, unless it has been mutually agreed that we can provide it to you verbally.
