Terms and Conditions
All recoveries will need to have the callout fee paid in advance as a minimum to book or for us to action any recovery.
The balance will be settled once the driver arrives with you.
Impound recoveries need to be paid in full to book, please see impound recoveries in our terms and conditions for more information below.
Under no circumstance is the callout charge refundable for any recovery.
If you wish to cancel the recovery at any time the remaining balance will be refunded to you minus any charges incurred (admin fee, mileage, congestion charge/ULEZ, time and tolls etc.) as long as we have not reached you beforehand. Please also see payment and cancellation policies.
All police pound recoveries will have to be paid in full at the time of booking. By Bank transfer only!
If the customer is not present, an admin fee of £55 will be charged. Failed collections are non-refundable for callout, admin and waiting time fees unless it is our fault. (This means the police will not release the vehicle to us due to our paperwork not being correct or we cannot load the vehicle)
All documents for your vehicles release will need to be emailed to us prior to collection and release fees and recovery funds transferred to us via bacs only prior to collection. (NO EXCEPTIONS)
All pre-booked transportation needs to be paid for in advance, payments should be received no later than three days before the collection is made. If the booking is made less than three days in advance, payment is required immediately on booking. Until payment is received, your booking will not be confirmed, and therefore we may not be able to undertake your job, or offer you your preferred date or time.
Payment, Cancellations, Waiting Times and Refund Policy
Payment should be made either by bacs, cash or credit/debit card over the phone prior to recovery. For transportation jobs, payment needs to be made at least three days in advance of collection. Any recovery costing more than £100 needs to be made via bacs only.
We can accept the callout fee by card and you may pay the rest in cash on arrival for the recovery.
This is due to a number of fraudulent chargebacks that have been made.
For all cancellations you will have to pay a cancellation fee of £55 as long as its cancelled before the driver has been dispatched to you.
If the driver has already been dispatched then you will be charged a callout fee plus mileage, tolls, congestion charge and time travelled.
If the driver arrives with you and you wish to cancel you will be charged the full recovery fee no exceptions.
Please see specific service required for full refund information.
