Castle Water’s customer service is being increasingly highly rated by customers. With more five-star reviews than all other water retailers combined, Castle Water is the only one of the ‘Big Four’ water retailers to be rated four-star on Trustpilot.
Castle Water CEO, John Reynolds OBE, explains: “We are delighted that customers are recognising the benefits of our extensive programme of investment and training. We will be announcing further new developments before the end of 2018.”
In the past quarter, a new customer service centre has become fully operational, an online account management service has been launched, and, in an industry first, Castle Water unveiled a new customer referral programme. Castle Water now offers customers the opportunity to benefit directly both from referring new customers and by transferring their own additional services to Castle Water.
