Our commitment to you
Kay & Lane Insurance Brokers are committed to providing the highest standard of service to its customers. However, should you need to complain, we will do everything possible to ensure your complaint is dealt with quickly and fairly.
How to complain
There are a few things we’ll need from you to find out about the current status of your policy/claim:
- Your policy number. This is the most important of all as it will help us to find your details easily and where possible understand how best to rectify the situation.
- Details of what went wrong. Please give us as much detail as possible. Where necessary please include the dates of your interactions with us and key events which are relevant to your complaint.
- How can we contact you? Just in case we need to speak to you further, please include some contact details and a preferred method of contact (e.g. phone or email).
Give us a call
The easiest way to complain is simply to give us a call.
Our main office telephone number is 01226 491001.
The member of staff receiving your call will try to resolve your complaint immediately. If they cannot, or further investigation is required, we promise to inform you of this within five business days.
In the unlikely event that your complaint has not been resolved within four weeks of its receipt, we will contact you and let you know the reasons why and the further action we will take.
Within eight weeks of its receipt we will either issue you with a final response letter detailing the outcome of our investigation and our decision, or a letter confirming when we anticipate to have concluded our investigation.
To email us regarding a complaint, please email the Managing Director – email@example.com
When sending emails you should not include any personal, financial or other confidential details as this method is not a secure way of supplying information.
