TERMS OF SERVICE AND CARRIAGE:
PRICING AND FEES: An estimate is always issued prior to the commencement of any contract, typically the estimates are accurate in the majority of cases. However, should the customers requirements change so will the final invoice amount, Invoice totals may be greater or lesser than the estimate should this happen. The estimate will be issued in writing which MUST be accepted and signed before commencement of service. It is a condition of the insurance that this contract document is signed prior to undertaking ANY service to the customer. Should we undertake an "absent collection" the contract must be signed prior to offloading the vehicle. Fees are charged for both outward and return journeys. "Keywaiting" is charged at £20 per hour
INSURANCE: The vehicle is insured for Third Party, Fire & Theft risks, this relates to the vehicle & passengers only and not contents. All customer property, shipments and goods carried in the vehicle are covered by Goods In Transit Insurance up to £16,000 per claim with a £250 excess payable by the customer unless the Insurance Waiver Premium of £15 is agreed IN ADVANCE, paid for and recorded on the Invoice. The insurance covers loss of or physical damage to items caused by the driver or during transport but not internal malfunction such as vibration damage where all reasonable steps are taken to secure the load. Certain items are excluded from cover. In the event of loss or damage to goods the full invoice amount must be paid by the customer in order to benefit from the Insurance cover. If the Insurance Waiver is not paid the insurance excess must be paid by the customer from any compensation they may receive. In all claims the decision of the Insurer is final. Reimbursement will be forwarded to the customer within 7 days of receipt from the Insurer. In all cases the invoice MUST be fully paid.

If the customer requests the driver to park in any position that contravenes parking regulations (e.g. yellow lines/permit parking) the customer must sign a disclaimer accepting to pay any incurred parking fines plus £5 administration fee per fine but this is solely at the drivers discression. It is the drivers responsibility to ensure that all paid parking (e.g. Pay & Display) is paid which will be charged to the customers invoice if incurred during paid service.
INABILITY TO DISPENSE DUTY: If for any reason (such as illness or mechanical failure of the vehicle) the driver is unable to undertake or complete any service requested the driver accepts no liability for direct or indirect losses incurred.

Fees will not be payable during such period of breakdown but will resume once the vehicle is underway. On any such occasion the fees for service will remain payable however the driver may choose (at his discression) to levy up to a 25% discount from LABOUR time for the inconvenience to the customer. UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES shall the driver be liable for any costs should the customer wish to complete any journey of their goods or persons by any other means.
