At Avon Insurance Brokers Limited, we aim to perform our services with reasonable care, skill and integrity based on the needs you have advised to us. We always treat clients fairly, however we recognise that occasionally things can go wrong. This guide describes our process for dealing with any service issues or complaints.
If you have any complaint in respect of the service Avon Insurance Brokers Limited has provided to you, we want to hear about it so that we can investigate your concerns. Similarly, if you have positive suggestions about how we can improve our service, please let us know.
If you have a complaint or query relating to the terms of your insurance coverage or claims under your policy, you may be referred to your insurer and their complaints process. Complaints are an important part of maintaining and improving our standards.
