When does the Qanvast Guarantee start?
The Qanvast Guarantee is applicable only for recommendations made by Qanvast starting from September 1, 2016.


What should I do before I make a claim?
Contact the Contracting Service Provider’s managers to notify them of your complaint and try to resolve it with them directly. Most of the time, they can resolve the issue by assigning a replacement Contracting Service Provider.
However, if the Contracting Service Provider is a sole proprietorship, and you’re unable to come to a resolution, read through the Qanvast Guarantee Terms and Conditions to see if you are covered.
If eligible, compile as much evidence as possible to submit with your claim. You’ll need some identification details of both yourself and the Contracting Service Provider, along with evidence for your claim.
How do I submit my claim?
