3.1 When we will provide the Service.
We will provide the Service on the date agreed between us in writing.
3.2 Payment must be received in advance of our provision of the Service
Invoices will be issued to you in respect of the Service to be provided and full payment must be received a week in advance of the agreed collection date. If full payment is not received by this time, then we will cease to provide the Service immediately, and we reserve the right to claim administration charges incurred in the performance of the Service up to this point.
3.3 We are not responsible for delays outside our control.
If we are delayed or affected by something out of our control, then we will take actions to minimise the effect, delay and or disruption, and will notify you in advance. We will not be liable for delays, disruptions of failed collections/ deliveries for causes such as road works, traffic accidents, breakdowns or adverse weather conditions etc.
3.4 If you do not make your vehicle available for collection at the agreed date and time.
If it has been agreed between us that, in order for us to provide the Service, your vehicle will be made available for us to collect on an agreed date, time and location, and that either yourself or a representative you nominate will be present at the collection and delivery point to hand over the keys. If either of these things do not occur, then we reserve the right to charge you for any additional costs incurred by us in the provision of our Services up to this point and to terminate the contract.
A waiting charge of £30 per hour will be applied, with no limit, if the vehicle is not made available for collection at the agreed location within 30 minutes of the agreed collection time.
It is of paramount importance that the vehicle is easily accessible for us to perform our Service. If the trailer arrives and the vehicle cannot be loaded for any reason outside of our control, such as unsafe environment, insufficient access, problematic terrain, etc., then the job will be aborted without any refund provided.
3.6 Condition of the vehicle
Unless agreed otherwise between us in writing, your vehicle must be in full working condition. Full working condition shall be taken to mean driving forwards and backwards,
able to start with sufficient fuel, braking safely and able to steer. If the vehicle is not in full working condition, or to the particular condition agreed in writing beforehand, then we will be entitled to recoup any additional costs incurred from performing the Service with the particular vehicle.
3.7 Insurance of the vehicle
Your vehicle will be fully insured up to £250,000 by our insurance provider. If your vehicle exceeds the value of £250,000 please contact us for an individual quote so we can adjust our insurance to cover your vehicle. Please find our contact details in (clause 2.2)
3.8 Damage, cleaning and maintenance costs
In the event the vehicle in transport deposits oil or other fluids a cleaning fee may apply. In the event the vehicle in transport causes any damage to the trailer costs will be applied via our insurance cover.
4. IMPORTANT: VEHICLE VALUE AND LIMIT OF LIABILITY
4.1 Your notification obligation.
As confirmed to you already, you are required to notify us in writing prior to booking (prior to our acceptance of your booking request) if the vehicle that you require us to transport has a replacement cost of more than £250,000. This enables us to quote accurately for the transport movement. If you do not notify us that the vehicle has a replacement cost of more than £250,000 at the time of your booking request, we will base our transport quote and plan our Service based on a replacement cost of £250,000 or less. We reserve the right to amend our rate or Service provision at a later date post booking if we are made aware that the replacement cost of the vehicle is in excess of £250,000 (see clause 4.5).
4.2 When we are liable for the cost of repair to damage, or the destruction of your vehicle.
Subject to the caps on our liability set out in clauses 4.4 we will be responsible for the cost of repair to any damage to, or destruction of your vehicle caused by us while providing our Service. However, we are not responsible for any reduction in the value of your vehicle resulting from any such damage caused by us. We are also not responsible for the cost of repairing any pre-existing faults or damage to your vehicle or for damage which is caused by a third party. For the purposes of these terms, destruction of your vehicle shall be considered to have occurred when the vehicle is beyond economic repair and, in that event, where these terms provide that we will be responsible for either the cost of repair to any damage or for destruction, we shall be responsible for the destruction of your vehicle at its replacement cost (subject to any caps on liability set out in these terms).
4.3 Our right to make changes if notification provided after we have already accepted your booking request.
In the event that you notify us that your vehicle has a replacement cost of more than £250,000 after we have already accepted your booking request (and not prior to booking, as per your notification obligation in clause 4.1), we have the right (but are not obliged to) to make changes to the Service and/or price of the Service as necessary in order to cater for the increased risk to us. If you do not agree to the change of the Service or price, we shall be entitled to terminate the contract without liability. If we continue to provide the Service to you in respect of such vehicle and you have not agreed such change to the Service and/or the price or we have not sought to make any change to the Service and/or the price, the provisions of clause or 4.4 (as the case may be) shall continue to apply.
4.4 Cap on our liability if notification provided.
In the event that you notify us in writing that your vehicle has a replacement cost of more than £250,000 in accordance with clause 4.1 or clause 4.3 above and we continue to provide the Service to you in respect of such vehicle, our liability for the cost of repair to any damage caused to or destruction of your vehicle in all circumstances (other for damage caused to by fire, lightning, explosion, aircraft, earthquake, storm or flood, riot or civil commotion) and for loss of and/or theft of your vehicle shall be limited to the lower of: (i) £250,000 per vehicle damaged, destroyed, lost or stolen, or such other higher cap on our liability as is expressly agreed by us in writing; and (ii) the replacement cost of the vehicle which has been damaged, destroyed, lost or stolen. For the avoidance of doubt, a notification by you to us in writing that your vehicle has a replacement cost of more than £250,000 and an agreement or confirmation in writing by us to continue to provide a Service, which does not expressly state that we have agreed a higher cap on our liability shall not in itself constitute an express agreement by us for the purposes of this clause, for a higher cap on our liability.
4.5 Limit and exclusion of liability if you are a business or using the Service for business purposes.
If you use our Service for any commercial, business or re-sale purpose we will have no liability to you for any loss of profit, loss of business, business interruption, or loss of business opportunity. Further, subject to clause 4.4 our total liability to you under the contract shall be limited to 100% of the price paid and/or payable for the Service.
4.6 We are liable for death and personal injury.
We shall be liable to you for death or personal injury caused by us and nothing in these terms and conditions shall limit or exclude or liability for this.
5. IF YOU ARE ENGAGING US AS A SUBCONTRACTOR
5.1 If you have engaged us as your subcontractor to provide the Service to a third party, you acknowledge that the contract with the third party to provide the Service is with you. Our contract to provide the Service is solely with you and you agree to make the third party aware of this fact in writing.
