Customer Service Policy
Leekes Retail has been in business for over 115 years and is still very much a family company. Our aim has always been to give value for money and excellent customer service but we do recognise that occasionally things do go wrong.
We take all the feedback we receive seriously and aim to resolve our customer’s concerns promptly. To ensure that we provide the kind of service you should expect from us, we welcome your comments.
If you are dissatisfied with your product or any aspect of the service you have received, please make contact with your local Store Management team, Sales Consultant or Installation Manager (Conservatory, Windows and Door orders only) who will aim to resolve your query quickly and efficiently.
Contact details: via Leekes Central Switchboard on 0333 222 4120
Failing that, you can write or email the details of your concerns, along with the sales order number where applicable, so that we can review the circumstances of your issue. We aim to achieve the following:
- To acknowledge your written communication within 5 working days.
- To resolve issues, following assessment and investigation as quickly as possible.
- To contact you with a full response from a named Leekes contact, together with their direct contact details.
Most of our customer’s queries can be resolved quickly but occasionally more investigation is needed, particularly if your issue is complex in nature. If we are unable to resolve your concerns quickly, we will keep you updated at regular intervals. If you wish, you can contact our Customer Service Team directly by writing to:

Our aim is to resolve your issue directly and we always welcome the opportunity to discuss any problem you are experiencing and make every possible effort to reach an agreement. However, if you remain dissatisfied with our final decision you may be able, dependent on the nature of your concern, to refer the matter to the following organisation:
