BASIC TERMS & CONDITIONS OF SERVICE:

These Terms & Conditions of Service are subject to change without notice and customers are advised to check what Terms & Conditions of Service are applicable to their service provisions PRIOR to booking and / or cancelling services.

Your booking is only secured by a Non-Refundable DEPOSIT. Deposits are non-transferable to another job or other person /party. If you book a job and have paid your deposit and then cancel the job after run timings are issued the FULL AMOUNT quoted is due paying and will be invoiced to you once the cancelled run has completed.

If you cancel before the run timings are issued Pet Taxi UK will transfer your deposit to the next job you need completing if that is booked in within 3 months, after this period the deposit is non-refundable.

If you have bought and paid for an animal and booked your animal transport with Pet Taxi UK and the SELLER cancels the collection after the run timings are issued the outstanding BALANCE of the job is still payable to Pet Taxi UK by yourself NOT the seller of the animal you have purchased.  Please do not ask Pet Taxi UK to recover your loses caused by seller cancellation as we are not able to act in this way.

Animals presented for transport must be ACCURATELY detailed and have no underlying illnesses or injuries which might bring Pet Taxi UK into disrepute with DEFRA or any other body concerned with Animal Welfare.

ANY animal not micro-chipped at time of booking or collection will be rejected and reported to the relevant authorities. This mainly pertains to Dogs, Cats and Ferrets. If your animal is traveling overseas, even into another European State, you must ensure ALL DOCUMENTATION is completed in time and provided to Pet Taxi UK PRIOR to loading onto our vehicles.

ISSUES DURING TRANSPORT:

If your animal becomes unwell during transport with Pet Taxi UK will contact the owner before we divert to a local vet practice to have the animal assessed and treated. This treatment is paid for by Pet Taxi UK if the illness or injury has been caused during transport and ONLY under those conditions!

STRESS during transport is NOT the responsibility of Pet Taxi UK and unless instructed otherwise by the owner of the animal in writing will not divert to a vet practice due to transit stress.

If your animal must be left with the vet practice for Animal Welfare reasons Pet Taxi UK’s responsibility for any additional costs ends and it will be the new owners responsibility to settle any outstanding vet bills relating to the incident in question and any onward transport requirements. If any outstanding balance is due to Pet Taxi UK we will invoice you accordingly.

COLLECTIONS & DELIVERY FAILURES:

If Pet Taxi UK arrives to collect or deliver any animal previously booked with us and cannot gain access to the animal due for collection or no-one is at the delivery address, all payments become due for the transport  of the animal and any boarding fees, vet fees and additional transport fees involved in re-delivery or collection of the animals(s) in question at the expense of the new owner.

Pet Taxi UK provide a written notification to both the BUYER and the SELLER of the animal(s) a few days before each run date in which both parties contract to be present during the time slot issued by us in writing.

Pet Taxi UK will provide customers with support in recovering costs from SELLERS to the extent it is legally permitted to do so.
