Our Complaints Procedure

If you’re not completely happy with our service we’d like to hear about it so we can do something to put it right.

We do everything we can to make sure our customers get the best products and services possible. However, sometimes we may not get things right the first time.

When that happens, we want you to tell us what went wrong so we can put matters right.

We want to:

  • Make it easy for you to tell us what went wrong;
  • Give your complaint the attention it deserves;
  • Resolve your complaint fairly without delay; and
  • Make sure you are satisfied with how your complaint was resolved.

Where to complain?

If you are not satisfied with any aspect of our service or products you can tell us about your complaint in the following ways:

In person:  Visit our Bower (Caithness) Showroom at Bower Workshops, Bower, Wick, KW1 4TL

We are open Monday to Thursday from 9.00 am – 5.00pm and Friday from 9.00am – 3.45pm.

In writing: write to The Customer Complaint Manager, Norscot Joinery Ltd, Bower Workshops, Bower, Wick, KW1 4TL

By telephone: call us on 01955 641303 during our office hours and ask for the Customer Services Department.

By email:  you can also email us at admin.office@norscot.co.uk

How long will it take?

We will wherever possible try to resolve your complaint immediately, but if we can’t then we will write to you within five business days to tell you:

  • why we have not resolved your complaint;
  • who is dealing with your complaint; and
  • when we will contact you again.

We endeavour to resolve any complaints as quickly as possible.  We will keep you informed on a regular basis but if you need an update please call us on 01955 641303 and ask to speak with the member of staff who is handling your complaint.

If we cannot reach an agreement with you?

If we can’t agree a solution with you within eight weeks, we will:

  • Send a letter giving our reasons for the delay and an indication of when we expect to provide a final decision.


  • Issue our final decision letter which will explain our final position.

The Financial Ombudsman Service

Our aim is to resolve all complaints internally. However, if after receiving our final decision letter, or if eight weeks have passed (this is sometimes referred to as the “eight-week rule”), you may have the right to refer your complaint to the Financial Ombudsman Service (FOS). The eight weeks start from the date a complaint is received anywhere in our business. Their contact details are shown below.

Please note: Only complaints relating to the sale of financial services should be referred to FOS.

Financial Ombudsman Service can be contacted in writing:
