13. GOVERNING LAW 

These conditions are governed by and interpreted following the laws of the United Kingdom, and the use of the United Nations Convention of Contracts for the International Sale of Goods is expressly excluded. If your habitual residence is in the EU, and you are a consumer, you additionally possess the protection provided to you by obligatory provisions of the law of your country of residence. URemovals Ltd ("Company," "URemovals," "we," "us," or "our") and yourself both agree to submit to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of London, which means that you may make a claim to defend your consumer protection rights in regards to these Conditions of Use in the United Kingdom, or in the EU country in which you reside.


14. DISPUTE RESOLUTION

Complains: We will inform a driver via email of any complaint submitted by a customer. We allow 7 working days from that initial email for the driver to respond to the complaint. If no response is received from the driver, we will send a second chasing email. In the event of further non-response from the driver, after 7 working days of him being notified of the complaint, the complaint will be resolved by URremovals on behalf of the driver.

Any complaint under investigation will be considered void if the customer fails to respond to correspondence from us for a period in excess of 28 days.

In the event that a complaint cannot be resolved directly between the customer and service provider ("driver") we offer the customer the option of a Complaint Mediation Telephone Appointment held between the customer, driver and mediator in an attempt to resolve the outstanding issues. The Mediation Appointment is limited to one hour and the driver is expected to make him/herself available to participate in this, after being given reasonable notice. If the driver fails to participate in the mediation process, URremovals will settle the complaint in full on his/her behalf.

In the event of a dispute between customer and service provider proceeding to Court, we agree on the request of the driver, to issue any claim notice on behalf of the driver for an amount in dispute in excess of £500. The driver remains solely liable for any resulting counterclaim by the customer.

URemovals operate a fair and robust complaints procedure and will do everything in our power to resolve any complaint. By confirming a booking with us the customer agrees that no outside negative third party feedback will be left against URemovals until a period of 14 days has elapsed since the complaint was first brought to our attention in writing via email.

Informal Negotiations: To expedite resolution and control the cost of any dispute, controversy or claim related to these Terms of Use (each "Dispute" and collectively, the “Disputes”) brought by either you or us (individually, a “Party” and collectively, the “Parties”), the Parties agree to first attempt to negotiate any Dispute (except those Disputes expressly provided below) informally for at least thirty (30) days before initiating the arbitration. Such informal negotiations commence upon written notice from one Party to the other Party.

Binding Arbitration: Any dispute arising from the relationships between the Parties to this contract shall be determined by one arbitrator who will be chosen in accordance with the Arbitration and Internal Rules of the European Court of Arbitration being part of the European Centre of Arbitration having its seat in Strasbourg, and which are in force at the time the application for arbitration is filed, and of which adoption of this clause constitutes acceptance. The seat of arbitration shall be Southampton, United Kingdom. The language of the proceedings shall be English. Applicable rules of substantive law shall be the law of the United Kingdom.

Restrictions: The Parties agree that any arbitration shall be limited to the Dispute between the Parties individually. To the full extent permitted by law, (a) no arbitration shall be joined with any other proceeding; (b) there is no right or authority for any Dispute to be arbitrated on a class-action basis or to utilize class action procedures; and (c) there is no right or authority for any Dispute to be brought in a purported representative capacity on behalf of the general public or any other persons.

Exceptions to Informal Negotiations and Arbitration: The Parties agree that the following Disputes are not subject to the above provisions concerning informal negotiations and binding arbitration: (a) any Disputes seeking to enforce or protect, or concerning the validity of, any of the intellectual property rights of a Party; (b) any Dispute related to, or arising from, allegations of theft, piracy, invasion of privacy, or unauthorized use; and (c) any claim for injunctive relief. If this provision is found to be illegal or unenforceable, then neither Party will elect to arbitrate any Dispute falling within that portion of this provision found to be illegal or unenforceable and such Dispute shall be decided by a court of competent jurisdiction within the courts listed for jurisdiction above, and the Parties agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of that court.


15. WHAT WE DO

We aim to provide a pier-to-pier sharing platform where you ("the customer") and businesses that provide transport services ("service providers") can find each other. URemovals does not provide any transport services whatsoever.

It is up to you to select the transport supplier on the basis of the service you require.

Please note that with regard to any transaction made between you and your chosen service provider, the resulting legal contract is between you both and not between you and URemovals.

The drivers allocated and scheduled to service your specified needs are not employees of URemovals and are self-employed or registered company contractors who operate their own vehicles.

23. FEES

Our site is a free site for customers. Initial payment is paid when a service provider is booked by the customer by credit or debit card. The balance is then paid to the service provider in cash at the conclusion of the job.

Service providers are responsible for the collection of monies owed at the conclusion of a job and also the payment of all VAT associated with the provision of services to the customer.

Confirmed bookings from URemovals are exclusive of VAT.

We reserve the right to impose immediate temporary or permanent withdrawal of your right to use our website.

We also reserve the right to disclose any information to law enforcement authorities as we deem appropriate.

We reserve the right, upon non-payment to a service provider, to register your details with various blacklists and credit reference agencies.

All payments made to service providers must be made in cash or by pre-arranged credit or debit card.

There is a 30-minute minimum charge on all bookings. After the first 30 minutes, our service providers charge every half hour thereafter at their respective half hourly rate (service providers' half hourly charges are displayed on the Quotes Page).

No time will be refunded under any circumstances for any hours booked irrespective of how many hours have been used.


24. CANCELLATIONS

You can cancel your booking anytime after you received your booking confirmation. If you cancel at least 48 hours before the booked service is scheduled, you will get a full refund of the initial payment. If you cancel your booking less than 48 hours before the date of the booked service is scheduled you will not be entitled to a refund.

If your selected service provider rejects your booking (due to unforeseen circumstances). In that case, we will endeavour to find a replacement provider or refund your Initial Payment in full if we cannot do so. Meanwhile, if you decide to cancel this booking, we will process a refund straight away. Usually, it takes 3-5 working days.


25. INSURANCE

URemovals will require drivers to confirm that they have insurance and documentation; in particular full UK driving license, a certificate of vehicle insurance, goods in transit insurance(optional), a certificate of Public Liability Insurance(optional) and are permitted to work in the UK

In the event that any of your items and/or property are damaged in transit, it is the assigned service provider’s responsibility to compensate you for the agreed cost of the damage to your item(s). All assigned service providers have declared they have goods in transit insurance and therefore shall be able to reimburse you for any damages.

Items transported with a value exceeding that covered by the driver's Insurance are covered to their full value by insurance held by you, the customer. URemovals accept no responsibility for damage, loss or breakages to customer goods or third parties during the duration of the work.

It is the assigned service provider’s responsibility to deliver your goods to you or produce them for your collection, undamaged. By "undamaged" we mean in the same condition as they were in at the time when they were packed or otherwise made ready for transportation. URemovals do not provide insurance cover. Goods in transit insurance and any applicable vehicle insurance or licences and permits are owned by the driver at all times and any liability for loss or damage to a customer's goods and/or property as a result of work carried out by them resides with the assigned service provider and/or their insurance provider.

If you indicate you wish to ride in the van as a passenger you agree to ride in the van at your own risk and accept that any liability for injury or loss rests with the service provider who accepts your booking and not with URemovals.

It is up to the driver's discretion to allow customers to travel in the van.

26. YOUR RESPONSIBILITIES

Congestion zone / Road Fees / Ferry Fees: The customer is responsible for paying any additional road fees, this includes, but is not limited to, congestion, low emission zones, ferry fees and parking charges. It is the driver's responsibility to collect any monies from the customer to cover these costs.

Van Sizes: It is entirely the customer’s responsibility to choose the correct size vehicle. Our Customer Services Team can give you all the relevant measurements to help you make the right choice or you can view our guide.

Parking: It is the customer’s responsibility to reserve parking. If there is no pre-arranged parking and the service provider receives a parking ticket it will be the customer’s responsibility to pay the penalty amount at the end of the job.

Packing: It is the customer’s responsibility to pack everything properly (unless packing services are requested). URemovals does not accept responsibility for damage or breakage caused by poor packing.

Dismantling of Furniture etc.: It is the customer’s responsibility to dismantle items before our arrival. This is to include any unit, system, furniture or beds unless this service has been requested in the brief description box. Our drivers all carry basic tools. 

Access to the new Property: It is the customer’s responsibility to make sure that all items are able to be moved into the new property (for example, wardrobe, bed, sofa etc). Service providers are not insured for removing any windows or making new entrances to the property.

Customer Delays: If any delay is caused by the customer (e.g. everything is not packed, waiting for keys, incorrect address, etc) our service providers reserve the right to add an extra cost to the final bill.

Changes to the Collection Time: If the customer needs a significant change in their booking and they are more than 48 hours away from the day of moving please cancel the booking and make a new one. We will refund the initial payment of the original booking. If the customer needs any small changes within 48 hours of the confirmed booking, please contact the service provider directly. The service provider’s contact details can be found in the confirmation email.

Customer Conduct: No staff abuse will be tolerated. If the driver is forced to terminate a job because of abuse from a customer, the customer will still be charged in full.

Recycling Centre: If you require the driver to attend your local recycling centre, it is your responsibility to check with the centre you intend to use that a waste disposal licence is not required. In general, our drivers will not carry these. Also, please check if there will be an additional fee for the van entering and using the centre's facilities, as you will be responsible for this charge.


27. NO AGENCIES

Nothing contained herein shall create, or deemed to create, any agency, joint venture or partnership relationship between URemovals and you whatsoever and you should not hold yourselves out as implying any such relationship with us.


28. LOSSES/DAMAGE

We do not accept responsibility for damaged or lost property once the job is complete and payment is made.

Ikea/Argos Like products: Please note that URemovals or its drivers will not take any responsibility for any damage or breakages involving any Ikea or Argos products of any type. This is due to the poor standard of construction and the one-off build design of their products.


29. DELAYS AND NON-ATTENDANCE

All of our service providers do their very best to be on time, but there may be delays caused by circumstances out of our control (for example, weather, traffic, etc). We do not accept responsibility for any customer losses that are out of our control pick-up/delivery delays. In the event of a delay, you will be contacted prior to your pick up time by the man and van driver or removal service and kept up to date with an estimated time of arrival.

In the highly unlikely event the man and van driver or removal company does not arrive at your pick up address as arranged, please contact our Customer Support Team immediately at info@uremovals.co.uk
