SSE customer services and how to call them

Some customers lodging complaints have been disappointed when their calls go answered. Many customers have complaints on the SSE customer care representatives taking too long to answer their calls during their lunch breaks. According to the clients, the customer care representatives do not answer calls during an extended lunch break that takes two hours from 12 noon to 2:0 p.m. Clients rant over customer care representatives not attending to their calls and take long to solve their complaints when they finally do.In other instances, the effort to contact SSE for clarification for double billing has become futile. Customers have lodged complaints of call-back functions on SSE customer care lines being non-functional. Clients have experienced instances whereby they received two separate bills for the same home address. More so, some of the bills show figures that are not in relation to the consumption. For example, a customer that has not spent a single night in his or her apartment for the entire month receiving a £200 double bill on the same address.

Such matters call for urgent measures prior to SSE debiting the customer’s account twice. The frustration is far from over when SSE customer services cannot be reached via phone and neither do they call back for a follow-up.Clients have also dismissed some SSE customer services representatives as incompetent and unable to assist them in their complaints. Customers that call SSE with the hope of getting assistance are met with disappoints when the customer care representatives from the other end fails to provide meaningful information towards solving the customer’s complaint.
