24HEP Terms & Conditions
PLEASE READ THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF USE CAREFULLY BEFORE USING THIS WEBSITE.
By using this website, you signify your acceptance of these terms and conditions of use (“Terms”). For the purposes of these Terms:
“Service/s” means after-hours tradesman booking service.
“Us”, “Our” and “We” refers to 24houremergencyplumber.com.au and After Hours Plus Pty Ltd including all directors and employees.
“You”, “Your” and “Customer” refers to you, the customer, visitor, or person using our website and engaging our Services
PROVISION OF SERVICES
We act as a facilitator to assist people requiring after-hours tradesman services (Customers) and individuals seeking to provide those services (Providers). Those services requested by the Customers, which are to be completed by the Providers (‘Professional Services’) may include the delivery and/or assembly of spare parts, materials or other items (Parts) required to provide the Professional Services and fix the Customer problem but shall not be deemed to include the Parts themselves. Any cost of the Parts will be in addition to any quoted Professional Services amount.
We do not provide Professional Services. The provision of all Professional Services is the responsibility of the Providers, which may be booked through Us. You agree we act only in the capacity of matching the work and Professional Services you require and a Provider to do the work.
Whilst we at all times try to ensure our final recommendations meet your requirements, we are reliant on the information provided by you and any additional discussions we may have to ensure we understand your requirements or the history of your issue/problem in order to be able to send a qualified tradesman to repair it.
Every effort will be made to ensure that the Providers we refer are qualified, insured and competent to carry out the Professional Services required to a proper standard. However, we do not accept any responsibility whatsoever for the acts or omissions of any provider and do not warrant accuracy, completeness, or fitness for purpose of any Professional Services or Parts or that such Professional Services or Parts comply with all applicable product safety and consumer product information standards. Any purchase of goods or services you make from Providers will be a separate contract with that Provider for those goods and services and Provider shall be solely responsible for the goods and services arranged through our Service.
We are not in any way responsible or liable for any failure in relation to:
a) the communication from you to the Provider
b) the provider’s failure to deliver the goods or services ordered;
c) the condition of the goods or services on delivery; or
d) the payment of any goods or services tax (or similar tax) payable on the supply by the Provider of the goods or services.
We will notify you of the callout fee at the time of booking your Professional Service. The Provider will advise you when they may be arriving at your property and will assess the work. Upon request, they will advise a quote estimate for the work and any Parts prior to commencement of any work. This quote will be an estimate only and subject to any issues that may be discovered during the course of the work. This quote for work will be in addition to the callout fee and all fees will be payable directly to the Provider on completion of the work. For the sake of clarity: Full payment must be made directly to the Provider on completion of the work including the cost of any Parts, labour and the callout fee.
CANCELLATION OF PROFESSIONAL SERVICES
Cancellation by Customer: Customers may cancel their scheduled Professional Service appointments through Our Service at any time, subject to the following:
If a Customer cancels more than 24 hours before a scheduled Professional Service appointment, there is no cancellation fee. If a Customer cancels between 2-24 hours before a scheduled Professional Service appointment, the Customer will be charged a $15 cancellation fee. If the Customer cancels during the 2 hours before a scheduled Professional Service appointment, the Customer will be charged the full Professional Service call out amount.
Cancellation by Provider: When a Provider cancels a scheduled Professional Service appointment, We generally notify the Customer and make the Customer’s Professional Service request available for another Provider to select. However, We cannot guarantee that a cancelled Professional Service appointment will be selected by another Provider and rescheduled or that the Professional Service request will be completed. We will do everything possible to ensure another Provider is sent or available or will otherwise notify You.
Lateness or No show: If a Provider fails to attend a scheduled Professional Service appointment, We will use commercially reasonable efforts to find another Provider as soon as possible. However, We will not be responsible in any way for any loss or damage, howsoever caused, arising in connection with any failure or delay in the provision of Professional Services or the non-availability of any Provider.
PROFESSIONAL SERVICES WARRANTY AND REFUND
All Professional Services come with a 30 day guarantee where the Provider will either offer to provide the Professional Services again or offer a full refund for the services where the same problem or issue arises that has previously been fixed by the Provider and the work has not been touched or tampered with and no other tradesman has worked on the issue.
There is a 12 month guarantee on all Parts excluding labour.
ACCESS TO PREMISES
You must ensure that the Provider has sufficient and safe access to your premises at the times they may reasonably require in order to perform the Professional Services. You agree to indemnify the Provider and Us against any loss or damage arising in connection with your failure to provide access to the premises at the agreed time.
