Complaints Procedure

At Mobile Homes Abroad Limited we have policies and procedures in place to ensure that we offer a faultless service to our customers. On the few occasions where a customer may feel dissatisfied, we will do everything in our power to resolve the matter by following the above rules. We encourage our customers to provide us with feedback, whether positive or negative to help with our ongoing customer service, making any improvements where required.

Customers can make a complaint in one or more of the following ways:

  • By telephone
  • By email
  • By letter
  • We will treat all complaints seriously and impartially.
  • We will investigate all complaints promptly, consistently, diligently, and fully.
  • We will aim to conclude all matters to the mutual satisfaction of the concerned parties as quickly as possible.
  • All complaints will be recorded on our complaints log which will be updated at each stage of the complaint.
  • We will acknowledge receipt of all complaints within 5 business days of receiving the complaint by way of a written acknowledgement confirming that we are reviewing the details of the complaint.
  • We will aim to resolve all complaints received within 5 business days from receipt.

    • Advise the customer that if they do not contact FOS within six months, we will not enable them to consider the complaint, except in very limited circumstances such as FOS considers the delay to be as a result of exceptional circumstances
  • If we are unable to resolve the complaint within 5 working days, we will aim to resolve it within 8 weeks and will confirm this in writing to the customer.
