Its subsidiaries include Max Spielmann, Snappy Snaps, Johnsons Cleaners, Jeeves of Belgravia, Flock Inns, and The Watch Lab. Of course, you have Timpson Ltd which is the flagship, with over 1,300 shops located throughout the UK and Ireland. This makes Timpson the largest service retailer in the region.

Timpson Ltd offers a wide range of services that include dry cleaning, watch repairs, shoe repairs, phone repairs, decorative engraving, photo processing, and key duplication. In response to COVID-19 restrictions in 2020, the organization established Timpson Direct with half of its shops located in out-of-town supermarkets. These shops are primarily modular buildings that facilitate self-service photo printing kiosks and self-service photo ID booths. Timpson Direct also manages the company's website.

  1. Fill out a contact form and wait for someone to respond.
  2. Use the website's shop finder to find the nearest location to you.
  3. Visit the Timpson Head Office.
  4. Though not provided on Timpson's official website, you might be able to contact a service representative. Double-check with your phone provider to be sure that those phone numbers are accurate.

Of course, if you're having a hard time resolving your via the aforementioned channels, you could always use the small claims process.

How to Use the Small Claims Process to Resolve Timpsons Complaints

If you have a serious complaint about Timpson or one of its conglomerates and find it difficult to resolve it, UK's small claims court may be capable of assisting. Most contractual consumer issues can be solved using the small claims process. UK small claims courts handle a wide spectrum of complaints. They range from companies that deny responsibility for defective products and/or shoddy services to fighting private car parking firms over unfairly issued parking tickets.

Claim value limits vary depending on where the claimant lives in the UK. For example, in England and Wales, the claim value limit is £10,000. In Northern Ireland, it's £3,000 while in Scotland it's £5,000. Nonetheless, there are a couple of exceptions that could not only affect the claim value limit but whether it can be heard in small claims court:

  • The limit is £1,000 for housing disrepair or personal injury claims.
  • If such claims are considered by a judge to be too complex, a judge could determine that they cannot hear the case. It doesn't matter whether the claim falls within the claim value limit.
  • Pursuing claims outside small claims court will most likely involve a more complex approach. As a result, you will probably need to hire a solicitor to help you prepare your case.
  • It won't only end up costing you more money upfront but the time it takes to resolve these types of cases takes much longer.

To go ahead with the small claims process, follow these steps:

  • Obtain a claim form and other documents that help guide you through the small claims process.
  • Visit the Her Majesty's Courts and Tribunals Service's website for small claims in England and Wales to download these documents. You may also visit your local small claims court office.

Scotland and Northern Ireland Have Different Small Claims Procedures

In Northern Ireland, you can visit the Northern Ireland court's website to begin the claims process. Alternatively, you can pick up an application from the court office, at a local advice centre, the Citizens Advice Bureau, or Trading Standards Office. In Scotland, Simple Procedures (the term for the small claims process in Scotland) can be initiated at the sheriff's court. Claimants are not required to hire a solicitor to do this. The Scottish Courts and Tribunals guide can be accessed online and provides detailed information on how to make a claim. You can take your claim to any court office, or post it to the Civil Processing Centre.
