1. Our Service
1.1 Our website offers a convenient way to facilitate the transportation of goods and is operated by Transport4U. We provide an online facility through which users can enter into agreements with each other for the transportation of goods ('the Services'). It is important that you read and understand these terms before using the Services. By accessing or using the Services you agree to be legally bound by these terms, as they may be modified from time to time. We reserve the right to change these terms at any time.
1.2 In these terms “we”, “us”, “our” means Transport4U, “End User” means person requiring the transportation of the goods and “Provider of Services” means the person providing the transportation services and “Members” shall mean any End Users and Providers of Service registered on our website from time to time.
1.3 We reserve the right to change these terms at any time. Amendments will take effect when posted on our website. However, the terms current as at the start of a particular Transaction will apply until that Transaction is completed.
2. Our Role
2.1 Our website is a place for End Users and Providers of Services to meet and enter into commercial agreements for the transportation of goods (“Transaction”). We do not have and never intend to have any contractual involvement in Member’s transactions and at no stage auction, buy or sell or purport to auction, buy or sell any of the potential Transactions displayed on our site. Any disputes between Members and end users are just that – Transport4u will not become involved. It is therefore the Member’s and end users responsibility to take the utmost care to screen the parties with whom they deal. We will not screen the parties or transactions on your behalf and this is a feature of the relationship between you and us that you willingly accept.
3.1 Members are required to register with us by completing the premium members form on our website and submitting it to us and we will send a login link to the email provided. Any other individuals who are unable to form legally binding contracts are also prohibited from using the Services. If you do not qualify, do not use the Services. By registering you are making a statement, upon which we are entitled to rely, that you are aged 18 years or older and capable of forming a legally binding contract.
4. Information Provided For Us
4.1 Each Member grants us a non-exclusive, world-wide, perpetual, irrevocable, royalty-free licence to use any information provided by them to us or other Members, for example, during the registration, listing or completion of the Transaction process.
4.2 Such information shall be legal and truthful, shall not infringe any third party's rights, shall not contain any viruses or other malicious computer programming routines and shall not link to any other websites. Without limiting the above, all information provided by Members shall be accurate and complete.
5.1 Members are solely responsible in all respects for all use of and for protecting the confidentiality of any email verification number and password which may be given to them for use on our site. Members may not share these with or transfer them to any third parties. Members must immediately notify us of any unauthorised use of them or any other breach of security regarding the Services.
5.2 We use third party services to secure and protect your credit card information and assist Members in entering into Transactions. However, any losses incurred or sustained by Members in transmitting information shall be borne solely and exclusively by Members and in no event shall any such losses in whole or in part be borne by us save where such loss is due to our negligence or that of our employees or officers.
6. Availability Of Site
6.1 While we will use all reasonable endeavour to make our Services and website available, we cannot guarantee that they will operate continuously or without interruptions. This could affect bidding or other aspects of the process or Transaction.
7. General Rules Governing End User, Service Providers And Members Interaction
7.1 To use and rely on the Services we provide all Members must understand their obligations to each other. Where a Provider of Services tenders an offer for a transportation job and the End User accepts that offer, a legally binding contract (berween Provider of Services and End User) has been made in respect of the Transaction.
7.2 Providers of Services may not retract this offer except in exceptional circumstances, for example where the End User has materially changed the description of the proposed Transaction to the conclusive detriment of the service provider.
7.3 The placing of an offer entitles any End User to rely on such offer and as a result you warrant and undertake that you have the legal right and entitlement to make such an offer and to enter into any such Transaction.
8. General Rules Governing Transactions
8.1 In relation to all goods End Users offer for transportation using the Services:
8.1.1 the End User must have all legal rights and entitlements to enter into any Transaction; and
8.1.2 the End User warrants and represents that the goods subject of the Transaction may at all times be lawfully transported.
8.2 If an End User, any information relating to the goods to be transported must be complete and accurate in all respects with appropriate descriptions and provide such additional information as we or any other Member may reasonably request (together, 'the Listing Information'). Once you post the Listing Information, the item becomes 'a Listed Item'.
8.3 Free to end users with no obligation to accept any bids or offers.
8.4 A Listed Item will remain listed on the website until:
8.4.1 the Transaction completes; or
8.4.2 the End User - specified listed time expires; or
8.4.3 The end user deletes their own item listing from the "My Account" section.
