However, a request for the return of a deposit can be made to us if one party cancels before the providing of any transport service. No requests for this return of the deposit should be submitted within seven days of the date on which the bid was accepted, or until other reasonable attempts have been undertaken to agree any cancellation with the parties directly involved.
2.    2.60 All cancellation requests will be reviewed by ourselves. If it is appropriate, the cancelled requirement for transport will be listed again on the site or will be deleted from it.

Getvan is not to be held liable for any claims outside of this timeframe. There is to be no cash refund supplied once the buyer has received the supplier’s contact details via Getvan. If the supplier should be, for any reason, not able to fulfil the agreed upon service, the buyer is required to contact Getvan in order to find an alternative to the supplier, and only if an alternative is not able to be found will the credit be considered.

5.    2.95 Extent of Liability
o    If the Customer determines that packaged items or goods have not been delivered to them, that the items have been damaged during delivery, do not match the advertised quantity or do not measure up to their description, at our discretion, We shall replace with comparable items any packing items which are absent, missing or impaired or do not comply with their depiction. Either we shall:
i. Provide an alternative to the goods with no further charges, or
ii. Accept the return of the goods and provide a credit to the Customer's GETVAN account at the price matching the item, or
o    Should a Customer determine that any packaging that has been ordered might be defective, the Customer is required to return the item immediately to us at their own cost, where it will be repaired and/or replaced at our discretion, possibly according to manufacturer’s own warranty. If it is not possible for the item to be replaced or repaired within 3 months of our having received the delivery, we are able to issue a credit to the Customer's GETVAN account in full or in part at our own discretion.
o    Should a Customer return any packaged item for repair or replacement and the item is found to be free of fault, then we may use our discretion in order to charge the Customer for any relevant handling costs.
o    The delivery of any repaired or replacement packaging should be made to our premises or to another delivery point which will be specified by ourselves.
o    In accordance with this condition, where we are liable for only some or a part of the order, the Contract will remain in its entirety and shall remain in effect with respect to the other parts of any respective items. This shall incur no set-off and no other claim shall be made by the Customer against or in respect of such other or other parts of these Goods or Services.
o    We shall not be liable for the price of any items which do not include delivery costs, are lost or damaged in transit. All claims by the Customer are to be made against the carrier. Replacements for items which are lost or damaged will be handled by the supplier at the prices determined at the date of dispatch if available.
o    Under no circumstances shall the liability of the Company to the Customer under this condition exceed the invoice value of the packaging order.
i. We shall not be bound by any warranty or representation given by or made on our behalf unless specifically stated in writing and expressly signed stating it is to be incorporated in these Terms and Conditions.
