SECTION 18 Liability and claims
Where you deal with us as a consumer, nothing within these terms and conditions shall be deemed to affect your rights under the Unfair Contract Terms Act 1977. For the avoidance of any doubt, when you deal with us as a business the Unfair Contract Terms Act 1977 is hereby excluded to the fullest extent legally possible and you are further referred to additional terms relating to business clients set out below.
Nothing in this agreement shall limit or exclude our liability for:
(a) Death or personal injury caused by our negligence
(b) Fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation
TX Parcels and the couriers offering the services available on our site to the customer shall perform the service in a professional manner with the appropriate level of skill and care. However, there are instances where damage to a consignment or loss of a consignment may occur whilst the courier you have chosen carries out the service. In such circumstances the liability we offer will be limited as set out in these terms and conditions. The reasoning behind such limitations of our liability is as follows:
(a) The value of a Consignment and the amount of potential loss to you that could arise if a Consignment is damaged or lost is not something which we can easily ascertain but is something which is better known to you. In many cases it cannot be known to us at all and can only be known to you
(b) The potential amount of loss that might be caused or alleged to be caused to you is likely to be disproportionate to the sum that we could reasonably be expected to charge you for providing the Service(s) under this Agreement;
(c) It is not possible for us to obtain protection which would give unlimited compensation for our full potential liability to all of our customers and, even if it were, such protection would be much cheaper if taken out by you (rather than us taking out such protection and passing the cost on to you) and on that basis, it is more appropriate for you to take out such protection;
(d) We wish to keep the costs of providing the Service(s) to you as low as possible;
(e) In light of the above we wish to limit our liability for any damage caused to you to levels which we consider proportionate to our low charges for providing the Services.
(f) In these Terms and Conditions, damage to you means any damage suffered by you (including any loss of, and/or damage to, a Consignment and any other loss, whether or not known to you or us or in either of our contemplation at the time of entering into this Agreement), however it arises but only so long as it is caused by our negligence, breach of duty or other wrongful act or omission (which includes any deliberately wrongful act or omission) and any breach of any of the terms of this Agreement, or any terms implied by statute (where applicable);
(g) We investigate all claims received by us in a fair and speedy manner, but such investigations are more accurate and are easier to perform soon after the loss or damage is alleged to have incurred and is reported to us and on that basis, the timescales set out in this Agreement are necessary to ensure that such investigations can be performed fairly.
To the greatest extent that is permitted by law, TX Parcels will not be liable for any claim for loss of profit, loss of use of an item, loss of revenue, administrative inconvenience, disappointment, or indirect or consequential loss or damage arising out of, or in relation to, the service you booked.
We shall only be liable for damage or loss caused to you if it is caused by our negligence, breach of duty or other wrongful act or omission, and only subject to the limitations set out within this whole clause.
We shall not be liable to you under any circumstances for any direct or indirect loss (including, but not limited to loss of profits, or loss of goodwill) or for any other special or indirect losses, costs, damages, or claims which do not arise naturally as a result of our negligence, breach of duty, or other wrongful act or omission.
We shall not be liable to you under any circumstances where there are any material discrepancies (meaning more than 5% difference) between the declared dimensions and weights and the actual dimensions and weights.
We shall not be liable for any items sent that are listed on our prohibited and/or restricted items list, these will be sent at the customers own risk.
If a number of parcels or individually wrapped goods are sent as one through our service they must be encased within one outer box, as per our packaging guidelines. Failing to do this, any package or individually wrapped item that comes apart in transit resulting in one or more of them being lost, once the remaining parcel(s) are signed for by the recipient, you accept that you cannot make a claim for loss or partial loss of that consignment.
We shall not be able to accept liability for any parcels that are handed to the wrong courier by the sender or that are left unattended for the collection to occur. It is the responsibility of the customer and/or sender to ensure the parcel is given to the correct courier. Items left unattended will be sent at the customers / senders own risk.
Where a parcel is sent on a service that does not require a signature and there is a valid delivery scan no claim for loss can be processed on that booking.
Should Inverness Baggae be liable for any reason, we shall (subject to these terms and conditions) only be liable to you up to the following amounts in the following circumstances:
The Limitation on the Amount of our Liability
(a) If the courier lose or damage all of a consignment we shall be liable for the amount the customer declared the parcel value as at the time of booking, limited to the amount of parcel protection available as standard, or purchased in addition, on the booking. For example should the contents have been declared as 100 pounds but the parcel protection available on the service booked is set to 20 pounds as standard inclusive protection, and no additional parcel protection purchased, we shall only be liable up to a maximum of 20 pounds. If the service booked does not include any standard inclusive protection, and no additional parcel protection purchased, we cannot accept any liability for loss or damage.
(b) We are only liable up to a maximum amount of standard inclusive protection on the service selected per consignment, unless the customer purchases any extra compensation for the Consignment from us at the time of booking.
(c) Where the declared parcel value on the booking is set to 0.00 pounds by a customer, no claim, regardless of the circumstances, will be processed as it will be deemed as being sent with no monetary value.
(d) If the courier lose or damage part of a consignment, the amount of the sum determined under clause above shall be pro-rated down to represent the proportion that the actual value of that part of the Consignment bears to the actual value of the whole Consignment (so, by way of an illustrative example, if a Consignment of 4 parcels was declared with a value of 20 pounds and a courier lost or damaged one of the parcels, we would only be liable for 25% of the total value, i.e. 5.00 pounds of the total 20 pounds declared value);
(e) Our liability is limited to the amounts set out above and is based on the actual value of the item at the date of loss.
For all claims to be able to ascertain the extent of our liability we do require proof of the value of the whole consignment and any part or parts of it which make it up within our required timeframes. The proof of value in all cases must be a receipt or invoice for the items.
(a) We will be unable to accept website screenshots, Catalogue print outs or similar item values as proof of value for the item you are sending
(b) We will only be able to cover for the cost of replacing the goods and will not cover for the profit you made on the item(s) or applicable value added tax (or like tax) on such profit
(c) We will not be able to accept a proof of value in the format of a word document.
For all claims of loss and part loss we must receive a proof of loss, in addition to the proof of value, as part of the claim within our required timeframes. This is an indication from the receiver that the goods have not been delivered/received.
(a) This needs to be signed letter from the receiver showing the date and full delivery address. This must be provided as part of the claim.
(b) We will not be able to accept an email as a proof of loss as we do require the receiver to sign a letter to advise the goods have not been received.
We will not be able to accept any claims for damage where the following, in addition to the proof of value, has not been received within our required timeframes:
(a) Photos showing the full extent of the damage to the item
(b) Photos showing the internal packaging used
(c) Photos showing the external packaging used
(d) A quote for the repair to the item
We shall not accept liability on any damage claims where the packaging does not comply with our packaging guidelines. As a minimum each parcel should be in a new, undamaged cardboard box that is strong enough to carry the weight of the goods, the goods should not touch any side of the box and must be cushioned using internal packaging that is of at least 5 centimeters thick all over. This can be bubble wrap or foam.
In all events of damage the item and all external and internal packaging must be kept and made available for inspection at the delivery address if required by the courier for 28 days from the claim submission date. Failure to have the item and packaging available should an inspection be requested could void the claim and we will no longer liable.
Where there are no physical signs of damage to the item we will not be liable and no claim will be processed in this event.
We shall not be liable for damage if the customer choosing a service that does not have damage protection available. It is the customers responsibility to check the service restrictions when making the booking.
Should your item be disposed of due to it being deemed unsafe, health and safety risk or not fit for transportation we shall not be liable in these instances.
We shall not be liable to you under any circumstance for any loss or damage unless you notify us by contacting our customer service, within 7 calendar days of the collection date. Any claims received after this point will be rejected.
After notification of making a claim or submitting a claim with missing documents you will have a maximum of 7 calendar days to submit a full claim or send through any missing documents. If this is not received within this time frame the claim will be rejected.
Should your claim be rejected and you wish to appeal this decision this must be done within 7 calendar days of the rejection notice being sent. Any appeals received after this date will be rejected and we will not be liable.
We can only accept, pay and discuss any matters to do with a claim/booking for our services with the person who contracts with TX Parcels. All other parties are not privy to this information.
Any item requesting to be returned but later delivered to the original receiver cannot be claimed against as we cannot guarantee to stop the parcel in transit. We cannot be liable for these instances.
All claims will be submitted to the relevant courier for review. Inverness Baggage reserve the right not to conclude any claim until a decision from the courier is received.
Inverness Baggage reserve the right to reject any claim should any of the above terms not be met.
Inverness Baggage has the right to open and inspect a Shipment without notice for safety, security, customs or other regulatory reasons.
SECTION 19 YOUR INDEMNITY
We shall assume, for the purposes of this Agreement, that you are the sole owner of every item dispatched in the Consignment but if any other person makes a claim against us for loss of or damage to any such items beyond our liability to you then you agree that you shall indemnify us against any losses or liabilities that we suffer through that claim (including all legal costs and expenses) and you agree that we shall have no liability to you in these circumstances, regardless of whether such claims exceed any limitations of liability set out in this Agreement.
You agree to indemnify us against any losses or liabilities that we may suffer through the loss of, or inability to deliver, a Consignment caused by deficient or ambiguous labeling of such Consignment.
You agree to indemnify us against any losses or liabilities that we may suffer through a breach by you of any of your obligations set out in clause 4.
SECTION 20 INTERNATIONAL CARRIAGE
If we are requested to collect from, or deliver a Consignment to, a country outside of the United Kingdom our terms of liability shall be governed by the relevant provisions of the Convention on the Contract for International Carriage of Goods by Road as set out in the Schedule to the Carriage of Goods by Road Act 1965 (as amended) (the CMR Regulations) and, in particular, articles 17 onwards and those provisions shall be deemed to be incorporated into this Agreement and will apply in place of any inconsistent terms within this Agreement. We can provide a copy of these provisions if requested, but even if these are not requested you will be deemed to have read, understood and agreed to them and their incorporation into this Agreement.
In relation to that part of any carriage performed by air and if the transit by air involves an ultimate destination or stop in a country other than the country of departure, the Warsaw Convention as amended may be applicable and the Convention governs, and in most cases limits, the liability of the Company in respect of loss of or damage to consignments.
We shall not be responsible for any local customs charges, import taxes or duties or any similar charge(s) incurred through a delivery of any Consignment and you must satisfy yourself as to whether any of these charges will become due, and if so in what amounts, before completing a booking with us. If any such charges become due as a result of a delivery of a Consignment on your behalf and are charged to us by any competent authority you agree to reimburse us fully in respect of the same within 7 working days of our demand.
We supply documents that are necessary to travel with your parcel for the use of customs and other such departments whilst the parcel is in transit. Neglecting to print or attach these documents to your parcel or not completing them in full may result in your parcel being delayed or returned. TX Parcels will not be liable in such instances and no refund will be processed. It is the customers responsibility to ensure that all the correct and necessary paperwork is accompanied with the parcel in transit and that it is fully completed and accurate.
It is the customers responsibility to ensure that they have satisfied the needs of the receiving country when sending a parcel through us and that the receiver has the necessary documents or clearance to import into that country. TX Parcels will not be liable for any parcels returned due to the receiver not having the necessary documents or clearance to accept the parcel. Any return charges incurred due to this will be surcharged to the customer.
This policy also applies to imports where the receiver is liable for all customs taxes, duties and other Charges
