Helps you prepare your emails

We provide a wide range of flexible email templates for you to adapt to your needs – just slot in the specific details for your case, and in a few short clicks your issue will be ready to go.

Creates a case file for you

Your case file is a secure online location for all important documents regarding your issue. You can upload photos, tickets, copies of receipts or external emails from before you raised your issue with Resolver.

Lets you record all your communications

One of the most important aspects of a complicated issue is keeping a record of all your correspondence regarding the complaint – Resolver does this for you automatically.

Lets you know when to escalate your complaint

If you’re not satisfied with the initial response from the organisation you have an issue with, our escalation process will let you know when you can raise your complaint to the next level of seniority and, ultimately to an ombudsman or regulator, where appropriate.

Resolver sorted out my problem with the council who had just left me with 20 days of rubbish and that was after I had applied for help to get the wheelie bins out. They sorted it out in a day and I'm delighted

Really good website, helped me with my parking ticket complaint.
Kevin T via facebook
Just a thank you to say without you I would not have resolved my issue with Brittania Parking. I tried to challenge the fine on their website but it wouldn’t let me submit. I looked on line and found Resolver and I have just had a letter from Brittania to say they’ve dropped the charge. Thank you so much!

I used this for a complaint to social services. There are reminders when you need to take action and immediately sends your message/complaint to the appropriate person within an organisation. There are many businesses and companies that can be contacted in this way. My complaint went to the Ombudsman who have now dealt with my complaint satisfactorily. I would definitely use this again and recommend it to anyone.

Hammersmith & Fulham took seven weeks to investigate and respond to Marcus’ complaint but found in his favour and cancelled the parking ticket. Marcus said: “This was really stressful and I am not sure why I even got the ticket, but, I am glad the right thing has been done!”
