Customer complaint

We would always advise that in the event of a complaint the first contact is made with the trader by you - preferably in the form a letter (with proof of delivery). If that has not worked, if you are located in the UK, Consumer Direct (external website) will give you advice. From outside the UK contact the UK European Consumer Centre. (external website)
