All rates are based on information provided by the booking person or organisation. Your booking may require a deposit or payment in full. The company or transport agent are not responsible if a delivery cannot be completed due to the customer providing incorrect, poor, incomplete information. The booking or job specification can be changed, cancelled, aborted and/or be subject to additional charges without any refund if the customer provides false, incorrect information, or the customer takes undue care to ensure all job details are provided that will allow the transport agent to complete the job without incurring additional time and costs that were quoted at the time of booking. This may mean you will lose your deposit or even full payment. It is your responsibility to ensure all necessary communications are made in a timely and appropriate state in order for the transport company to complete your booking. In particular, the benefit of any promotional rates may be lost and the full fare charged. Any damage to vehicles will be covered by the transport agents insurance.
