The majority of postal service customers buy standard products that are subject to standard terms and conditions. If you are unhappy with the service you have / are receiving and wish to make a complaint, you should take the following steps:
1. Register your complaint with the service provider and follow its complaints procedure
In the first place you should ask your service provider to try to resolve the complaint. Both Guernsey Post Ltd and Jersey Post Ltd have codes of practice in place which set out the procedures for handling complaints, including time limits for resolution.
2. Trading Standards (Guernsey)
If a complaint made in Guernsey remains unresolved either because you are dissatisfied with the outcome, or the target time in the customer charter has not been met, you can take the matter to the Trading Standards Service who will act as an impartial body and attempt to find a fair outcome for all the parties involved.
You can make a complaint by email to Guernsey Trading Standards firstname.lastname@example.org or in writing to Trading Standards, Raymond Falla House, Longue Rue, St Martin, Guernsey, GY4 6AF
If either party is dissatisfied with the outcome they can ask that the matter be referred to us. Trading Standards will submit a report to us, the complainant and the service provider.
3. Submitting a complaint to us
If your service provider has been unable to resolve your complaint to your satisfaction (and, in Guernsey you are dissatisfied with the outcome of Trading Standards' involvement) you can ask us to consider your complaint.
