- EQC Mediation Service- EQC has set up a mediation service to help resolve disputes. With the complex issues surrounding earthquake matters, many homeowners are experiencing difficulties in dealing with their insurance claims. Mediation can be offered as an option if claimants have not been able to resolve their complaint through EQC Customer Complaints Resolution Team. Mediation offers an opportunity to sit down with an EQC representative (EQC negotiator) to talk about the issues, to share information, to look at options and hopefully to make steps towards the resolution of your claims. The mediator acts as an independent, and impartial third party. His or her role is to facilitate the conversations between yourself and the EQC representative.EQC mediation service is independently administered by AMINZ (Arbitrators and Mediators Institute of New Zealand). The service is free to claimants. You can visit www.eqcmediation.org.nz or call 0800 866334 between the hours of 10.30am to 4pm Monday to Friday for more information.
