B. Supply of Service
bookaskip acts as an agent for the refuse skip service suppliers listed on the website. Those suppliers have authorised bookaskip to enter into skip contracts for the supply of those services on their behalf, and to collect payment under those contracts. bookaskip receives payment from suppliers for all refuse skip services sold via the website.
Operation of Website:
The website will invite you to supply certain information regarding your service requirements. On the basis of that information, bookaskip will recommend one supplier to you based on the best price for services matching your requirements. You will then be invited to submit a purchase order.
Submitting a purchase order to the website constitutes an offer to enter into a contract for the provision of refuse skip services with the third party supplier (“Supplier”). On receipt of confirmation of that order, you will be bound by a contract to purchase the services requested in the purchase order, subject to your rights to cancel or vary the order set out in clause 11 of these terms and conditions. You must be 18 years of age to purchase services using the website, and bookaskip reserves the right to decline orders on that basis.
bookaskip and Supplier will supply services to you on these terms only (as may be amended from time to time). The only circumstance where any variation to these terms will apply is where bookaskip has expressly agreed in writing to that variation. If there is any conflict with other terms of trade, these terms will take priority over any other terms of trade.
The price of the goods or services is that stated on the website at the time of acceptance of your purchase order, unless otherwise expressly agreed in writing by bookaskip. The prices include value added tax (“VAT”). All prices are stated in Pound Sterling. All prices include the cost of delivery and removal of skips. Prices quoted are based on the information which you submit to the website, and bookaskip and Supplier reserves the right to vary prices if that information is incorrect.
You must make payment for your order upon submitting that order (“due date”) by credit card payment directly to bookaskip.
You are responsible to pay the Supplier directly for any fees incurred for incorrect waste or excess weight.
Supplier will endeavour to deliver refuse skips on the agreed delivery dates but neither bookaskip nor Supplier will be liable for any failure or delay in delivery except as provided in clause 8. Late delivery does not entitle you to cancel any order or part order.
bookaskip will provide a full refund of fees paid in respect of:
(a) any ordered services not provided due to failure or delay by Supplier; or
(b) any services provided not being substantially the same as the services requested in the purchase order, provided you notify bookaskip of the request for refund within 5 working days of the scheduled delivery date for the service and subject to confirmation of the failure, delay or substantially incorrect service by Supplier.
Use of Skips:
While refuse skips are in your possession, you will not:
(a) light fires in the skip; or
(b) place or allow to be placed into the skip:
(i) substances hazardous to health such as toxic or corrosive materials or liquids;
(ii) any liquids of any kind whether contained or not;
(iii) cans, drums or other containers of any kind unless they are empty and crushed; so incapable of carrying any liquid;
(iv) medical waste of animal carcasses of any kind or quantity;
(v) any other material not listed above however considered unsuitable for containment e.g. malodorous waste;
Including but not limited to: asbestos, paint, tyres, gas bottle, fridges, freezers, TVs, fluorescent tubes, light bulbs, vehicle batteries, computer monitors, fibrolite, liquids and solvents.
(c) fill any skip higher than the top of its sides and in such a manner as to prevent spillage of material from the refuse skip either while stationary or in transit; or
(d) move any skip without Supplier’s consent.
You will be liable to Supplier for any damage to refuse skips which occurs while in your possession, subject to fair wear and tear.
Access and Ground Conditions:
You will be responsible for the provision of free and suitable access to and from the delivery site (including the removal and reinstatement of local obstructions) and for ensuring suitable ground conditions for the delivery, placement and removal of the Skip. No responsibility will be accepted for the damage to any surface and you should therefore take steps to protect surfaces (e.g. paving slabs, soft ground) before delivery.
Third Party Liability:
You shall fully and completely indemnify bookaskip and Supplier in respect of all claims by any person whatsoever for injury to person or loss or damage to property howsoever caused including all costs and charges in connection therewith and arising from or in connection with the use of the Skip.
Insurance and Notification of Accidents:
You shall be responsible for obtaining all prudent insurance cover, including third party liability and cover against loss or damage to the Skip. If the Skip is involved in any accident resulting in injury to persons or damage to property, immediate notice must be given to bookaskip and Supplier.
Order Cancellation and Variation:
You will be entitled to cancel or vary an order provided that the Supplier receives notice of cancellation or variation no less than 2 working days before the delivery date under the order. You will incur an Administration Fee of £30.00 for a cancellation. Any variation made to your order within two working days prior to delivery will be granted at the Supplier’s sole discretion and, in addition to the Administration Fee, may be subject to payment of reasonable costs. bookaskip reserves the right to cancel or vary any order if Supplier is no longer able to provide the services set out in a purchase order, provided that bookaskip will first notify you and use all reasonable endeavours to procure a viable alternative to meet your requirements. In the event an order is cancelled by bookaskip the customer will receive a full refund of any monies paid in advance for the cancelled order.
bookaskip will pass on to you the benefit of any warranties normally given by Supplier. bookaskip and Supplier expressly excludes to the fullest extent permitted by law all other warranties, descriptions, representations or conditions whether implied by law, trade, custom or otherwise. You acknowledge that bookaskip is not responsible for the quality of services provided to you and any dispute regarding those services is between you and Supplier.
Limitation of Liability:
The liability of bookaskip and Supplier for any claim, damages, loss or expense related to the supply of services is limited to the cost paid by you for those services except where statute expressly requires otherwise. To the fullest extent permitted by law, neither bookaskip nor Supplier will be liable in any event whether in tort (including negligence), contract or otherwise for any loss of profits or any consequential, indirect or special damage, loss or injury of any kind suffered by you or any other person.
Neither bookaskip nor Supplier will be liable for any failure or delay in complying with any obligation imposed by these terms if the failure or delay arises directly from an any circumstance beyond bookaskip’s or Supplier’s control, including without limitation fire, flood, earthquake, explosion, war, insurrection, sabotage, industrial disputes, transportation, embargo, changes in law, delays or disruption by government or government agencies.
