Vitesse strives to provide a fast, efficient and friendly service to all our customers. We believe that we are here to provide you with superior service and we aim to ensure that our customers are completely satisfied with the service they receive at all times.
If at any time we do not measure up to these standards or we have given you cause for dissatisfaction, please tell us about your experience. We can assure you that we will listen sympathetically and do our best to resolve any issue or misunderstanding promptly and in a manner that is both fair and effective.
There are 2 main ways to tell us that you’re not happy with any aspect of our service.
a) If possible immediately raise any issue with a member of our staff. Explain the nature of your problem. They will do their best to help you and will refer your issue to an appropriate person who will attempt to resolve it immediately. If this is not possible, they will document the details of the problem and arrange for you to be contacted by an appropriate Manager.
b) If it is inappropriate or impractical to raise your problem with a staff member then you may wish to raise a complaint and to contact the Complaints Team direct. Contact may be made by any means you find to be convenient. Please make sure that you fully explain the nature of your complaint and we will strive to resolve it as soon as possible.
