We expect all businesses that join our Love Your Doorstep Directory to be able to prove that they are reliable businesses that offer their customers a great service and good quality.

Love Your Doorstep monitor this through several means, the main one being the feedback we receive from the community in the form of reviews that customers leave on the business page for that specific business.

Why are so many of the reviews positive and 5 star rated?

Many of the businesses that join LYDS have come highly recommended to us based on their previous good reputation among our community, therefore they continue to receive glowing testimonials from our members that reflect their quality.

My review isn’t showing up on the website – why is this?
Reviews have to be manually uploaded on to the website so your review will not appear instantly on the business’ LYDS page.  Negative reviews/complaints will be contacted prior to publishing to double check the circumstances, so there may be a delay which investigations take place. Also, if you do not leave a star rating, technology of the website doesn’t always process the review.

Do LYDS only allow the good reviews to be published?

Each business will have all of their reviews published on their directory page unless we find it to be a malicious attack or uses inappropriate language.  Also, if we investigate a review and find it to be false or misleading this will be withdrawn

How do you deal with negative reviews?

We need to be confident that our LYDS businesses are trustworthy, quality businesses delivering a good customer experience at all times.  Therefore we operate a strict complaints policy.  We treat every complaint seriously – the first and second complaint we receive about a business will be discussed with both parties involved to see if a satisfactory resolution can be reached.  The third written complaint we receive will result in automatic dismissal from our LYDS directory and platforms.

If the reviewer has taken legal action against a business, or vice versa, then we will remove any related reviews until legal proceedings are complete.

Moderation of Reviews

As each review is manually uploaded to our site, each review is checked through for content appropriateness e.g. foul language, personal attack or defamation of character.  We try to publish the reviews as frequently as we can but cannot guarantee a time scale for their appearance on our website.  If a review form is not completed fully then we will not receive it and unfortunately have no way of retrieving it from our system.

How to submit a review

In order to submit a review, you need to click on the individual directory page of the business, then click on the ‘review’ tab at the top. Each section of the form (including star rating) must be complete otherwise the review will not be uploaded onto our system.  We recommend you leave a genuine email address. This will not be published but will enable us to contact you regarding your feedback. 

Review Content

If a review breaches any of the below, we reserve the right to not publish the review or remove already published reviews at any time and without notice to either party.  Furthermore, publication of a review does not mean that Love Your Doorstep share the same opinion as the content of the review.

All reviews should:

Reviews should NOT:

1) Be defamatory of any person; obscene; offensive; hateful or inflammatory.
2) Promote discrimination based on race, sex, religion, nationality, disability, sexual orientation or age.
3) Disclose the name, address, telephone, mobile or fax number, e-mail address or any other personal data in respect of any individual.
4) Infringe any copyright, database right or trade mark of any other person.
5) Breach any legal duty owed to a third party, such as a contractual duty or a duty of confidence or be in contempt of court.
6) Be likely to harass, upset, embarrass, alarm or annoy any other person. Your Review should be of the business not the individuals involved.
7) Impersonate any person, or misrepresent your identity or affiliation with any person.
8) Advocate, promote or incite any third party to commit, or assist any unlawful or criminal act.
9) Contain any advertising or promote any services or web links to other sites.
