We treat all client data in this strictest of confidence and will not be discussed with any third party.

All prices quoted by us will be presented in writing via email or post to avoid possible disputes. In this respect we also require all delivery dates requested or agreed by you to be confirmed in writing or via e-mail.

Our basic standard charges are currently as outlined in the proposal and quotation documentation however as delivery and requirement varies from company to company please note that you will always receive a formal sales order for any work that we have proposed prior to proceeding with any delivery.

All invoices where not pre-paid must be paid within 7 days from date of invoice or in timescale agreed with the client, for example where fixed payment terms exist in the Public Sector.

Complaints Policy

We try very hard to ensure that you will have no cause for complaint about the products and services supplied by [Harrison IT Services ]. However, we are only human and it is possible that at some time a mistake may be made. In the unlikely event of this happening it is our stated intention to address

the problem directly, and to learn from any problem that may arise in order to reduce the chances of any future difficulty from a similar cause. We therefore undertake to:

  • Deal with any problem that may arise quickly, efficiently and sympathetically.
  • Always treat our customers with respect and courtesy.
  • Put right as a matter of course anything that we may do wrong – our customers should expect that rather then hope for it!
  • Give all our staff the authority to deal with simple complaints on the spot without needing to refer to senior management.
  • Always allow customers to access the highest level of staff if they are dissatisfied with a decision of a less senior staff member.
  • Learn from any complaint we may receive so that any avoidable problem is not repeated.

If you ever have cause for complaint you can contact us via Telephone, Email, Post or indeed any other contact method in order to get the problem addressed. You can use any of the contact details published on our website, but may care to call[07905 118509] or email [sales@harrison-it.com] in the first instance.

If you are reading this section because you have a complaint you wish to raise, please accept both

our apologies and our assurance that it will be dealt with as soon as you notify us.
