Our Complaints Handling Policy
We (CarMoney Pty Ltd, Credit Representative Number CRN 547324) are committed to providing all our customers with excellent service. However, if you or any customer believes we have not adequately met our obligations, or you have a complaint about any of our services; we encourage you to let us know so we can resolve to your satisfaction.
What is a complaint?
A complaint is defined in AS/NZS 10002:2014 and ratified by ASIC as “an expression of dissatisfaction made to or about an organisation, related to its products, services, staff, or the handling of a compliant, where a response or resolution is explicitly or implicitly expected or legally required.” Any person who is dissatisfied with our service, for any reason, may contact us to complain. Sometimes we may receive negative feedback, which is not an actual complaint and as such may not require a resolution or formal follow up. Whilst we welcome feedback from all our customers, this policy does not apply to feedback of this nature.
