3. THE DECLUTTER ON DEMAND PLATFORM
3.1 We act as a booking agency for self-employed Organisers. Our contract with Organisers and Clients is limited solely to provision of use of our Website.
3.2 Individual Organisers are responsible for providing Services to Clients and there is a direct contract concerning the provision of Services between a Client and the relevant Organiser/s. The Client and the relevant Organiser/s are responsible for any taxes arising as a result of provision of any Services.
3.3 We have carefully selected the Organisers available for Booking through the Website. We conduct interviews and request background checks of Organisers, with these checks reliant on information obtained from third parties. We require all Organisers to provide valid and up to date insurance details. Clients acknowledge that we do not and cannot guarantee the accurateness or completeness of such checks, whether conducted by us or by third parties. Clients acknowledge that they book Organisers at their own risk.
4. BOOKING SERVICES
4.1 By making a Booking through the Website, Clients confirm that:
(a) they are at least 18 years of age and legally capable of entering into binding contracts;
(b) the personal information which they provide when they make a Booking is true, accurate, current and complete in all respects;
(c) they agree not to impersonate any other person or entity or to use a false name or a name that they are not authorised to use;
(d) they agree to provide a safe working environment for Organisers and prior to each Session disclose any information about the assignment or working environment that might put the Organiser/s at risk of harm or damage to their health. If the moving of very large and/or heavy items is required, they agree to arrange additional help from other parties to do so;
(e) they agree to be present with the Organiser/s during Sessions (unless otherwise agreed with the Organiser/s).
(f) they agree that all advice is given by the Organiser in good faith but it is ultimately always the Client’s decision as to whether or not to take such advice, to keep a particular item or to dispose of it. Organisers will not accept liability for the consequences of any decisions the Client makes or assessing the value of any of the Client’s possessions;
(g) they accept responsibility for all or any items disposed of as a result of carrying out the Services and accept that items taken to charity or recycling cannot be returned by the Organiser/s after they have been removed;
(h) they accept that while the Organiser/s will always endeavour to handle the Client’s property with the utmost care, the Organiser/s and Declutter on Demand Ltd will not accept liability for any loss or damage howsoever caused during the course of providing the Services; and
(i) they agree if the Organiser/s recommend or provide contact details for other third party service providers or products, the Organiser/s and Declutter on Demand Ltd are not responsible or liable for such third parties’ or products’ performance nor for any loss or damage that they may cause.
4.2 All Bookings made via the Website, our social media pages or any other access point we make available to you, must be made by paying the relevant Deposit in advance.
4.3 All proposed Bookings are conditional and subject to acceptance by the requested Organiser. We will confirm such acceptance to Clients by sending a Booking Confirmation. The contract between a Client and the relevant Organiser is only formed when we send you the Booking Confirmation.
4.4 If a Client's requested Organiser is unable to accept their proposed Booking, Clients will have the option of either having their Deposit refunded or their Deposit being used towards booking a Session with another Organiser.
5. PRICES AND PAYMENT
5.1 The prices of Services will be as quoted on our Website, except in cases of obvious error.
5.2 Prices may change from time to time, but changes will not affect Bookings in respect of which we have already sent Clients a Booking Confirmation.
5.3 Reasonable efforts have been made to ensure that making a Booking is secure. However, we cannot be responsible for fraudulent use on our Website of a lost payment card.
6. BOOKING CANCELLATION BY THE ORGANISER
6.1 The Organiser/s reserve the right to withdraw the Services at any time without notice due to undisclosed or unforeseen circumstances.
6.2 If, after Booking and receipt of a Booking Confirmation, the Organiser is unavailable for a Session, we will endeavour to find the relevant Client a replacement Organiser for that Session or the Client will be able to reschedule for another date.
7. BOOKING CANCELLATION BY CLIENTS
7.1 Clients can cancel a Booking for any reason up until 4 days (96 hours) before the start time of a Session without a cancellation fee being charged. Clients will have the option of either having their Deposit refunded or their Deposit being used towards booking an alternative Session with that Organiser or another Organiser.
7.2 Clients may reschedule a Booking with the same Organiser up until 2 days (48 hours) before the start time of a Session without a cancellation fee being charged. After a Booking has been rescheduled, it cannot be rescheduled again and paragraph 7.3 below will apply to such Booking.
7.3 For cancellations within 2 days (48 hours) before the start time of the Session (or if an Organiser arrives for a Session and the Client is not present to allow the Organiser access, unless otherwise agreed with the Organiser in advance), the Client will lose their Deposit as a late cancellation fee in order to compensate the Organiser for the loss of opportunity of alternative work, unless determined otherwise in exceptional circumstances at our sole discretion.
