Quotation

1.0 Our quotation is an inclusive price. 


Amendments

2.0 We reserve the right to amend the price stated in the quotation to take account of changes of circumstances which were not considered by the Customer when preparing our quotation. These changes must be confirmed to us in writing and issued to the Service Provider within a minimum of 5 working days before the Service provision date. Upon receipt of these changes an amended quotation will be provided to the Customer.Such circumstances may include the following:

2.1 We have to collect or deliver goods at your request to above ground and first floor and were not made aware of this at the time of quotation provision. 

2.2 If the property is an apartment/flat it is the responsibility of the customer to make sure the goods fit in the lifts of their building. Failure to inform Hampson & Mealey Ltd of any items that can not be transported via the lift, whether the customer has knowledge or not, additional charged will be incurred. 

2.3 Increased costs resulting from currency fluctuations or changes in taxation, freight charges or increased road fuel prices.

2.4 We provide any additional services.

2.5 We are requested to provide additional services not included in the quotation on the date of Service, including the collection and moving of extra goods.

2.6 Working Hours: Hampson & Mealey Ltd operates between the hours of 07:30 – 18:30. In the event your move runs past this time due to no fault of Hampson & Mealey Ltd – for example, but not limited to, receiving your property keys late, unloading your items late due to insufficient or incorrect packing by the customer, then Hampson & Mealey Ltd will take your items to our storage unit and re-deliver the next available day.

This will not occur on home removals which require the services of transport larger than a Luton van or moves cross county or national. These home removals are exempt due to their nature and our staff are required to complete delivery. In the event an issue occurs regarding a move of this type, please contact Hampson & Mealey Ltd as soon as possible so a solution can be arranged.

In the event your items are taken back to our storage unit and redelivery us scheduled, a fee will incur of;
1. An overnight storage fee,
2. Transport for your items to be re-delivered,
3. Wages for required staff for the day.

If the move is running past 18:30 due to a fault of Hampson & Mealey Ltd, our staff will work past this time to complete your move. Alternatively, we may place your items in overnight storage at no extra cost. 

2.7 We are requested to provide additional services not included in the quotation, including the moving or storing of extra goods.

2.8 We allow up to 1 hour for our Team and Vehicles to wait for keys as a gesture of good will but there after we charge £50 per hour for our time. If the customer has to wait for key collection the day of removal, Hampson & Mealey must be informed prior to arrival. If not informed, additional charges may apply. 

2.9 Or if there are subsequent customers on the day, it may not be possible to complete the move. If this occurs, full payment is still required.

2.10 We are unable to access the collection or delivery point, or such access is inadequate or inappropriate for our vehicles. If access is not possible then we may offer the alternative for you to hire at your expense a smaller alternative vehicle. It is the responsibility of the customer to arrange direct parking for the vehicle(s) supplied by Hampson & Mealey Ltd. If access is further away than the customer upon quotation supplied, additional charges will apply. 

2.11 We have to pay parking or parking penalty charges. If the vehicles(s) supplied by Hampson & Mealey Ltd are forced to park on double or single yellow lines, the customer will be liable for any parking fines that may be occurred. Parking permits, restricted loading areas, etc., must be organised by the customer prior to arrival. Failure by the customer to do so will be classed as customer negligence with them being liable for any fines incurred by Hampson & Mealey Ltd during the service duration. 

2.12 There are delays or events outside the control of Hampson & Mealey Ltd which increase the cost of resources required to complete the work.

2.13 We have to pay operational charges in order to carry out the services, which may be brought in at any time by the law and amended at any time. Such operational charges may include (but are not limited to) Low Emission Zone (LEZ) and Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) charges and congestion charges.

2.14 Our quotation does not constitute a contract and accordingly there is no contract between us until you have returned the Acceptance Form duly signed and dated with the appropriate deposit paid and we have confirmed receipt of such form. The contract will then be on these Terms and Conditions.

Our Liability for Loss or Damage

10.0 We do not know the value of YOUR goods therefore WE limit OUR liability to a fixed limit per item. The amount of liability WE accept under this agreement is reflected in OUR charges for the work.

10.1 Hampson & Mealey Ltd offer goods in transit Insurance as standard for all customers who book with us. Our Liability is limited to the value of £10,000 per van. If we have not been made aware of the value of your goods (combined, and single items worth more than £500), we limit our liability to a fixed limit of £40 per item. Any relevant breach of contract on the part of the customer will nullify the obligations Hampson & Mealey has to honour the corresponding section of the contract. If items are not adequately packed, we will not be liable for any damages to such items.

10.2 Unless otherwise agreed in writing if we are negligent or in breach of contract WE will pay YOU up to £40 for each item which is lost or damaged as a direct result of any negligence or breach of contract on OUR part.

10.3 In this respect an item is defined as any one article, suite, pair, set, complete case, package, carton, or other container. These limits may affect the quotation. We are NOT LIABLE FOR ITEMS OR BOXES you pack yourself.

10.4 Any underrepresentation of the total value of your goods more than 50% will be treated as a BREACH OF CONTRACT and will absolve us of any LIABILITY for your items.

10.5 Our liability for damaged goods operates via a repair then replace pathway. If the item can be restored to the state it was in before the damage occurred then repair of the good/s will be first attempted. If the good/s are unrepairable then a replacement on a ‘new for old’ basis will occur. This replacement will be of the same equivalent value of the good/s when originally purchased or attained if proper evidence is submitted to our Insurer (receipts, bank or credit card statement, gift receipt, etc). Evidence of this purchase price will need to be sent to our Customer Service Team at Hampsonmealey@outlook.com within 3 days of written notification of damage. If no evidence can be provided by the Customer, our Insurer will ascertain the value of the good/s at their own discretion.

10.3 We shall not be liable to the extent that loss or damage is caused or contributed to by moving goods under your express instructions against our advice and in a manner that is likely to cause damage.
