Bigger options (15m3, 20m3, 30m3) enable you to choose the exact date and time for collection. The 20m3 and 30m3 options are dedicated, so the van will be for your exclusive use. Once a dedicated van is loaded, it goes straight to the delivery address.

4. Excluded Property

The following items are specifically excluded from this contract and will not be removed:

  • jewellery, watches, trinkets, precious stones, money, deeds, securities, stamps, coins, or goods or collections of a similar kind
  • potentially dangerous, damaging or explosive items
  • goods likely to encourage vermin or other pests or to cause infection

If you submit such goods without our knowledge, we will not be liable for any loss or damage except when death or injury is caused by our negligence or that of our employees or agents. You will therefore indemnify us against any charges, expenses, damages or penalties claimed against us by third parties. 

5. Overloaded Vehicles

We are required by European law when transporting goods across the EU, Switzerland and Norway not to exceed the van’s total weight of 2400kg (this includes the weight of the van itself AND the goods being transported by the van). Should the driver at the time of loading believe the allowed weight limit has been reached, he/she will request you stop loading more items into the van.

You may disagree with the driver and choose to load more items into the van. Should this be the case you will indemnify us against any charges, expenses, damages or penalties claimed against us by third parties and we will not be liable for any loss or damage to your items.

If, at the time of loading, the addition of more items necessitates the use of an additional van due to weight constraints, it is the responsibility of the customer to bear all associated costs for the additional vehicle. This includes but is not limited to, rental charges, extra labour, and any other related expenses

If the van is overloaded it is the customer’s responsibility to pay the fine for the exceeded weight restriction.

6. Ownership of the goods

By entering into this contract you confirm to us that:

  • the Goods are your own property; or that you have the authority of the owner of the property to make this contract in respect of the Goods
  • You will be responsible for paying for any claim for damages and/or costs against either of the above if this proves to be untrue.

7. Cancellation and postponement

If you cancel this contract we are going to charge you the order processing fee in the amount equal to the amount you’ve paid as a booking deposit.

You can re-book the collection of your goods for another agreed with us date free of charge only if you notify us more than 48 hours prior to the originally agreed removal date.

The ‘agreed removal date’ is considered to be 00:01 am on the date arranged between you and MyCheapRemovals Ltd. for your move.

In the event that customer indecisiveness, cancellation, or any changes made by the customer after the final agreement lead to additional costs for MyCheapRemovals Ltd., the customer shall be fully responsible for covering these additional expenses. This includes but is not limited to, costs incurred from reallocating resources, additional labor, storage, and transportation fees that exceed the initial agreement.

To minimize such occurrences, customers are encouraged to finalize their decisions and communicate any changes or cancellations to MyCheapRemovals Ltd. as early as possible.

Payment of these additional costs is required within a specified timeframe as outlined in the invoice.

8. Claims

If any Increased Value insurance is effected by the Assured on the cargo insured herein the agreed value of the cargo shall be deemed to be increased to the total amount insured under this insurance and all Increased Value insurances covering the loss, and liability under this insurance shall be in such proportion as the sum insured herein bears to such total amount insured. In the event of a claim, the Assured shall provide the underwriters with evidence of the amounts insured under all other insurances.

Where this insurance is on Increased Value the following clause shall apply: The agreed value of the cargo shall be deemed to be equal to the total amount insured under the primary insurance and all Increased Value insurances covering the loss and effected on the cargo by the Assured, and liability under this insurance shall be in such proportions as the sum insured herein bears to such total amount insured. In the event of claim, the Assured shall provide the Underwriters with evidence of the amounts insured
under all other insurances.

Minimising Losses

It is Your duty and Your servants and agents in respect of loss recoverable hereunder to take such measures as may be reasonable for averting or minimising such loss and to ensure that all rights against carriers, bailees or other third parties are properly preserved and exercised and the Underwriters will, in addition to any loss recoverable hereunder, reimburse the Assured for any charges properly and reasonably incurred in pursuance of these duties.

Measures taken by the Assured or the Underwriters with the object of saving, protecting or recovering the subject-matter insured shall not be considered as a waiver or acceptance of abandonment or otherwise prejudice the rights of either party.
