For pawnbroking (our only consumer credit product) it is especially important that we have a clear, consistent mechanism for receiving, handling, addressing and learning from any complaint.
We have a comprehensive Complaints Policy in place.
Among providers of short term credit, pawnbroking stands out as one sector of the market that has attracted almost no complaints historically*. As for the Miltons businesses themselves, they have had a formal complaints policy in place for some years under the auspices of the Financial Ombudsman Service and advanced millions of pounds of loans in that time. It is very satisfying to confirm that complaints are almost unheard of at the Miltons companies and negligible even across the wider pawnbroking industry.
The Financial Ombudsman Service (www.financial-ombudsman.org.uk) publishes a consumer leaflet which we can provide on request, though you may also like to visit their website page www.financial-ombudsman.org.uk/publications/consumer-leaflet. As that website is not under our control, please advise us immediately if the link no longer appears to function correctly.

* In Autumn 2017 the Financial Ombudsman Service released its latest full year figures. In that full year they had received some 321,000 complaints about various financial services (payment protection insurance, current accounts, payday loans etc) but statistically pawnbroking complaints were negligible. Across the whole of the UK only 12 complaints about pawnbrokers were upheld in the year.
