2.1 The Services we provide revolve around acting as your personal concierge. This will allow you to leave those little tasks to us so that you can focus on the more important things in your life.
2.2 The range of our Services will change overtime. We may add new Services if we see a demand from our clients.
2.3 However, we may also remove any of our Services at any time. You agree that we can do so if we believe, in our sole discretion, that we cannot provide that Service at an affordable price, or if we are unable to provide that Service any more due to a third party or a change in legislation. You agree that we need to run a profitable business and will not hold us liable if we need to withdraw any of our Services for any reason, including if we have previously provided it to you, and even if it has already been scheduled. We will try to notify you of any change if you do have such Services scheduled.
2.4 We may also stock items which we can supply to you at a cost (“Products”). These are Products that we personally use and recommend.

We will attempt to make repayments in the same manner as the payment was made, however if this is not possible then we reserve the right to repay you in the manner we choose.
6.7 If you require an invoice for a Delivered Item then this will need to be requested by you directly from the Merchant. When possible, we will pass to you, with the Delivered Item, any invoice or receipt which we have received from the Merchant, however if this is not supplied then you will need to contact the Merchant for this as we are unable to produce this for you.

6.9 You agree that we may claim, for our sole benefit, any bonus provided by the Merchant including, but not limited to, any frequent customer points program, rebates, purchase incentives and discounts for large volumes. For the sake of clarity, while we will make use of such benefits, we will not knowingly go to a Merchant who is more expensive or provides a poorer service to gain such a benefit. Any such benefit is tertiary to the service or product you receive.
7.1 Many of our services will require gaining access to a building (“Real Property”) or your personal items or pets (“Personal Property”).

This includes, but is not limited to, restraining any pets that may endanger our “runners” or Experts, any construction work that may be occurring, any noxious chemicals or any people who may present a threat. You agree that, should our “runners” or Experts reasonably believe that they are unable to safely access your Real Property due to any risk, you will remain responsible for the cost of any Service. If our “runners” or Experts decide that a Real Property cannot be safely entered, then we will notify you of the reason. If such a risk may exist, then please let us know in advance so that we have the opportunity to either make arrangements to minimise that risk or to refuse to provide the Service.
7.3 You acknowledge that you have a legitimate interest in any Real Property or Personal Property for which you Order Services. You acknowledge that we have no reason to doubt your legitimate interest, and that we will not be infringing on any party’s interest in that property by providing the Service.

7.4 For any Services that require access to Real Property, we will require that you either provide access at the Scheduled time, or keys and any required alarm codes and/or other information required to gain access to perform the Services. We will relinquish such items to you at your request.
7.5 Anything provided by you under clause 7.4 will be securely held by us. If, for any reason, we need to provide any of these to an Expert then we will seek your consent prior to doing so.
7.6 Any Personal Property will be transported by us in a reasonable manner but will be done so at your risk. You agree that you will insure your own personal property. You agree that you will be liable for any damage caused by your Personal Property, including any mess made by any pet.
7.7 You agree that you will notify us if any vehicle that you ask us to move, for any reason, is not insured, and that you will pay for any additional cost that is incurred so that we can minimise any liability while moving it (including the cost of additional insurance and/or the use of a car movement company).
7.8 It is your responsibility to make sure that any Personal Property can be legally and safely moved. For example, if we are required to move your vehicle then that vehicle will need to be road worthy etc. You will need to tell us in advance if this is not the case so that we can arrange the appropriate Experts to help us move the Personal Property. You agree to indemnify us for all costs incurred if this clause is breached. We may be able to arrange for the repair or replacement of the Personal Property at your expense.
7.9 It is your responsibility to make sure that any Personal Property that is to be used in the performance of a Service is in a safe and working condition, such as your vacuum cleaner. If the “runner” reasonably believe that it is unsafe then they will not use it. This may affect the delivery of the Service. You agree that you will pay for any Service which cannot be completed due to the condition of the Personal Property. We will endeavour to notify you if the “runner” or Expert believes that any Personal Property in unsafe or not in a working condition.

9.1 We understand that you are asking us to look after your Property and we understand the care with which you expect us to honour that trust you’ve placed in us. For that reason, all of our “runners” have gone through a vetting process and have had their experience scrutinised.
9.2 Our “runners” and Experts all respect the trust that is being placed in them and acknowledge the level of that trust. As a result, they have all agreed to do what they can to honour that trust, and to provide you with the level of Service that you reasonably expect.

9.6 We want our clients to experience the best service possible, so we are happy to discuss any issues or ideas that you may have.
9.7 We also scrutinise our Experts, seeking out industry leading professionals who we believe provide outstanding service. We ask that you let us know if you ever receive anything other than the service you expect. This will provide us with an opportunity to discuss the issue with the Expert and, if required, look for other Experts to provide the Service in the future.
9.8 If you prefer, we can make sure than any complaint is handled anonymously, so that the “runner” or Expert is not aware of who raised the complaint.
9.9 We want to be able to provide you with worry-free Services and letting us know about any issues will help us to do that.
