Alternative Methods for Placing 1st Central Complaints
Sometimes, companies do not provide the customer service we deserve. When businesses are lacking or they refuse to respond to your complaints, it is prudent to make a complaint against them with consumer agencies, so other customers know to steer clear.
If you aren't getting anywhere with 1st Central, you may need to utilise other methods for filing your complaints, such as:
- Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) Schemes
- Filing a complaint with an ombudsman
- Going to Small Claims Court
Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) can involve either arbitration or mediation. A mediation may end up with both parties satisfied to a degree. In an arbitration, a third party evaluates the situation and may come up with a decision that you may or may not like, but both parties need to adhere to.
Speak With an Ombudsman
The Ombudsman Association allows you to find qualified professionals who can help you with your complaints. You should:
- Click the "Find an Ombudsman" option.
- Search through the results, or narrow your choices based on your complaint type, location, and category of business it falls under.
- Visit the website of the chosen ombudsman and locate their contact details.
Note that an ombudsman is a neutral third party who comes in to hear the disagreement. They look at both sides and come to a decision to resolve the dispute. This may or may not go in your favour.
Small Claims Court
As a last resort, you can sue in a small claims court. The amount you can claim depends on your location in the UK. For instance:
- England and Wales: £10000
- Scotland: £5000
- Northern Ireland: £3000
Many times, filing complaints like this gives the business the push it needs to assist you in the way you deserved in the first place. They don't want negative remarks against them, so they'll try to help you promptly this time so you'll remove your report.
