You must give your service provider a chance to fix your problem by following its internal dispute resolution process. Many complaints can be resolved quickly once you contact your service provider.

Ask your service provider for a complaint reference number. If you have difficulty contacting them, call us on 1800 062 058 or email tio@tio.com.au

Here are some helpful tips for talking to your service provider.
