By accessing our Site or by using our Service, you indicate that you accept these terms of use and that you agree to abide by them. If you do not agree to these terms of use, do not access our Site or use our Service.

  1. Accessing Our Site Or Our Services
    Access to our Site and to our Service is permitted on a temporary basis, and we reserve the right to withdraw or amend access to our Site or our Service without notice. We will not be liable if, for any reason, our Site or our Service is unavailable at any time or for any period.

If you have any concerns about your login details or think they have been misused, you should contact [email protected] straight away to let us know. We can deactivate your account at any time.

  2. We operate an online marketplace and act as a fee collecting (’Deposit’ referred to as ‘Service Fee’) booking agent for individual Partner Driver(s)/Porter(s) and/or Transport Companies, who agree to operate using our platform. Whenever you book a service using our website www.removalsquad.co.uk or our App available on the App Store or Google Play Store (“our Platform”) you agree to these terms and conditions (“the Terms”).

  3. We can update these Terms at anytime so always read the latest version on our website before making a booking with us.

  4. These Terms are important, and you should read them carefully. They explain our relationship with you, what we do and what happens if things go wrong, including what you may be charged for cancellations.

  5. Our Partner Driver(s)/Porter(s) and/or Transport Companies may also have terms and conditions that are separate to these. You should read them as well and these are available on request.

  6. When you book a Partner Driver(s)/Porter(s) and/or Transport Companies through us the contract is between you and the Partner Drivers/Porters and/or Transport Companies. We act for the Partner Driver(s)/Porter(s) and/or Transport Companies for the purpose of determining your requirements and selecting the appropriate Partner Driver(s)/Porter(s) and/or Transport Companies from those available.

  7. Each Partner Driver(s)/Porter(s) and/or Transport Companies is solely responsible for performing the service you set out in your request and it is your responsibility to make sure all the relevant information is provided to us, so we can select a Partner Driver(s)/Porter(s) and/or Transport Company to complete your booking.

  8. Fixed Price Bookings -The price we quote to you on our Platform is only for the item(s) you have told us you need moving. If you have selected a fixed price (’make an offer’) booking option, your price will be fixed as long as your moving conditions remain the same. Example: you list 10 boxes to be moved from the pickup address on a ground floor, to the drop off address also on a ground floor, which you provided when you made the booking. Upon the drivers arrival, you now have 20 boxes and your pick up is on a 2nd floor with no lift and you wish to move to a different address. It means the moving conditions have now changed and will either result in a price increase (to be negotiated with the driver). If for example the driver is unable to lift the boxes alone due to excessive weight and you are unable to assist, or the new drop off address is too far away compared to your initial drop off address, then your booking may be cancelled entirely and all deposits will be forfeited, as the deposit will act as a charge towards the drivers attendance and our administrative cost.

  9. Minimum Bookings - Where you have chosen to book for the minimum period of 1 hour, you will be billed per minute in 1 minute increments after the first hour has lapsed, if your job takes less than an hour you will be billed for our base rate which is equivalent to an hours charge.

  10. Future Bookings - If you have selected an estimated duration, example 3 hours, you will be billed for a minimum of 3 hours, even if your move was completed in a lesser duration.

  11. Fixed price Offer - When you make an offer to move the offer price will be fixed for the listed inventory, we are not under any obligation to accept your offer, as we cannot guarantee a Partner Driver(s)/Porter(s) and/or Transport Company will be prepared to do your job at your offered price.

    Important: We understand that it may be difficult to know how long your move may take; we therefore recommend that you select more time than you think you may need, just to be on the safe side. As you can appreciate drivers book in other jobs near you, so that they can get a full days work in your area. If your move is too big for the duration you selected, the driver may not be able to complete your move in 1 go as they may have another customer waiting. The driver may be able to return at a later time or date to complete your move, but we can’t always guarantee this will be possible. If unsure on how long you will need to book for? Contact our office; alternatively opt for a fixed price quote that is not time based.

  12. If you require any other items to be moved from or to other locations, you must make a separate booking.

  13. We reserve the right to reject your Booking on behalf of a Partner Driver(s)/Porter(s) and/or Transport Company at our discretion based on the information you provide.

  14. Our Platform is designed for use in the United Kingdom for personal or business customers and is governed by English law. Access to our Platform by you from any other jurisdiction other than the UK is entirely at your own risk.

  15. Our liability to you under this agreement is a maximum of £250.00 (two hundred and fifty pounds sterling) per booking.

Before you can place bookings for jobs using our Application, you need to open a Removalsquad account. When you open an account you may create a password, or other secure login method, and may also have to provide credit card details. You must keep any password you create, or other secure login method, secret, and prevent others from accessing your email account or mobile phone. If another person uses these methods to access your account, you will be responsible to pay for any jobs they book, and we are not responsible for any other losses you suffer, unless the person using your password obtained it because we did not keep it secure.

You may close your account at any time by requesting to do so in your account section of our website or contacting us using the contact details above. We may suspend your access to your account, or close it permanently, if we believe that someone else has used your account. We may also close your account if in our opinion you are abusing our Service (for example, by applying for refunds or credit to which we do not consider you are entitled, making repeated unreasonable complaints, mistreating our staff, or any other good reason). If we close your account permanently we will refund any remaining account credit you have validly obtained from our customer service team or Application following any issue with a job, by applying a credit to your registered credit card, or if that is not possible for any reason, by way of a bank transfer using bank details (provided you have supplied them to us).

5. BOOKINGS

When you place a booking you will have the choice to place it as an ASAP Booking or a Future Booking. For an ASAP Booking, we will tell you an estimated arrival time before you place the booking.

For a Future Booking you will select the date and time of your pick up, you must be available at least 1 hour before your selected time and 1 hour after your selected time. Once the assigned Driver/Porter/ Transport company is ready to proceed to your pick up location, they would activate the ‘go to pick up’ tab on their App, which will send you an alert that your driver is on their way with an estimated time of arrival. Should the drivers arrival time not be suitable, feel free to give them a call or send them a message with any arrival time concerns you may have, and in most cases the driver may be able to accommodate your timing requirements.

Any booking you make through our platform needs to be accepted by the Partner Driver(s) or us/Porter(s) and/or Transport Company before it is confirmed. We will send you a notification or an email if your booking has been accepted (the "Booking Confirmation "). The contract for your booking comes into existence when we send the Booking Confirmation. You are responsible for paying for your booking using your account, and for related charges, and for complying with these Terms, even if you have made the booking for someone else. All services offered are subject to availability. Please contact our Partner Driver(s)/Porter(s) and/or Transport Company once they have been assigned to your job, that is of course if they don’t contact you first. Removalsquad cannot guarantee that a Partner Driver(s)/Porter(s) and/or Transport Company will contact you first once your booking is accepted, and assigned, but we can guarantee that we would send you the contact details of your designated Partner Driver(s)/Porter(s) and/or Transport Company.
