All Orders are subject to acceptance by us, and we will confirm such acceptance by sending you an email to confirm, which Services will be carried out (“Service Confirmation”). The Service Confirmation will confirm the Items associated with the Order and the pricing for the provision of Services in relation to those Items. The Contract between you and us will only come into existence when we send you the Service Confirmation.

We will not be liable for any error you make.

 

3.5  If we cannot accept your Order. If we are unable to accept your Order, we will inform you of this and will not charge you for the Service. This might be because of unexpected limits on our resources, which we could not reasonably plan for, because a credit reference we have obtained for you does not meet our minimum requirements, because we have identified an error in the price or description of the Service or because we are unable to meet a delivery deadline you have specified.

3.6  Your Order reference. We will assign an order reference to your Order and tell you what it is when we accept your Order. It will help us if you can tell us the Order number whenever you contact us about your Order.

(a) Please ensure to thoroughly check all the Items for hazardous items e.g. coins, pens, keys, etc.

(f)  the Wash and Fold will not include any bedding and towelling products. If these are included then it will be added as an individual product and your bill will be amended accordingly; and

(a)  shrinkage of up to 4% may occur. This is roughly equivalent to 4′′ on curtains 8’6′′ long;

(b)  sunlight, age, general wear and tear and certain atmospheric conditions will have weakened the fabrics which would cause them to shred during the cleaning process;

(c)  some glazed fabrics will become fully or partially delustered; and/or

(d)  cleaning will remove soiling which may reveal:

(i)  sunlight;

(ii)  yellowing of fabric through smoke damage;

(v)  hidden staining.

(b)  not all marks, dirt, and stains, such as ink, blood, milk, or egg, can be removed as ingrained dirt can penetrate garments and damage the skin;

(c)  dye from darker coloured skin may run or bleed into lighter colour skin, lining and/or fabric and discolour the lighter areas;

(d)  the first time a garment is cleaned may result in a change of colour, share, texture, or finish;

(e)  after cleaning, slight differences in shading of panels may become apparent. This is due to skins of more than one animal being used in manufacturing of that garment;

(f)  dyes used during tonnage are not always colourfast, therefore there may be some loss or change in shares;

(g)  the use of adhesives during garment manufacture to secure hems and other parts may result in the adhesive coming to the surface of the garment during cleaning;

(h)  no responsibility is taken for fancy trimmings, buckles, zips, or buttons;

(i)  scar tissue may become apparent for cleaning;

(j)  garments manufactured using weak skins are liable to break up or tear during the cleaning process;

(l)  linings without a good seam allowance may come apart during the cleaning process;

(m)  fine skin may lose its shape after cleaning;

12. PRICE AND PAYMENT

12.1  Where to find the price for the Service. The price of the Service ill be the price indicated on the order pages when you placed your order (“Price Schedule”). We take all reasonable care to ensure that the price of the Service advised to you is correct. However, please see 12.4 for what happens if we discover an error in the price of the Service you order.

12.2  Minimum Order. All Orders are subject to a minimum price as indicated on the order page when placing the Order through the Platform (“Minimum Order”). In the event that the Order amounts to a value less than the Minimum Order, you will be charged the Minimum Order. Please note that the Minimum Order may differ depending on location.

12.3  Changes in prices. Prices are subject to change at any time, but changes will not affect Order in respect of which we have already sent you a Service Confirmation.

12.4  What happens if we got the price wrong. It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the Services we sell may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices before accepting your Order so that, where the Service’s correct price at your order date is less than our stated price at your order date, we will charge the lower amount. If the Service’s correct price at your order date is higher than the price stated to you, we will contact you for your instructions before we accept your Order. We are under no obligation to provide the Services to you at the incorrect (lower) price even after we have sent you a Service Confirmation. If we accept and process your Order where a pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could reasonably have been recognised by you as a mispricing, we may end the contract and refund you any sums you have paid.

12.5  What happens if the Items do not match the description included in the Price Schedule. Certain Items may not match the descriptions included in the Price Schedule (or the assumptions upon which it is based), whether because of their size, nature, delicate or heavy fabric, the amount of cleaning required or some other substantive reason. We reserve the right to agree on separate pricing arrangements in relation to such Items and in such circumstances, we will contact you to discuss such pricing. The Contract will therefore only relate to those Services that we have confirmed in the Service Confirmation. We will not be obliged to provide any other Services, which may have been part of your Order until such Services have been confirmed in a separate Service Confirmation.

12.6  When you must pay and how you must pay. Payment for all Services must be by credit card or debit card., or in some limited cases by Direct Debit. Upon placing an Order, we capture the payment but do not directly charge your credit card or debit card although some banks will show it as a recent transaction. We process payment when we have received your Order at the facility and after cleaning. If your final total is greater than the total set out in the Service Confirmation (i.e. we have updated your Order), it may show on your recent transactions but the captured amount will be released when we have taken full payment. We will take payment from the debit or credit card, details of which were supplied with your Order. If for any reason, we are unable to take payment, you will become liable to Us for the sum due plus interest in accordance with Clause 12.7.

12.7  We can charge interest if you pay late. If for any reason, we are unable to take payment in accordance with Clause 12.6 or If you do not make any payment to us by the due date, we may charge interest to you on the overdue amount at the rate of 2% a year above the base lending rate of Bank of England from time to time. This interest shall accrue on a daily basis from the due date until the date of actual payment of the overdue amount, whether before or after judgment. You must pay us interest together with any overdue amount.

12.8  What to do if you think an invoice is wrong. If you think an invoice is wrong, please contact us promptly to let us know. You will not have to pay any interest until the dispute is resolved. Once the dispute is resolved, we will charge you interest on correctly invoiced sums from the original due date.

Loss or damage is foreseeable if either it is obvious that it will happen or if, at the time the Contract was made, both you and we knew it might happen, for example, if you discussed it with us during the sales process.
