The Company- Terms and Conditions
Please review the Terms and Conditions carefully.
A. General Terms and Conditions
Scope of Validity
These terms and conditions shall apply to all orders executed by The Company (hereinafter- the “Company”), unless barred by mandatory statutory provisions. They shall include all areas of operation of the Company which are described in detail below. Agreements deviating from these terms and conditions are permitted.
Areas of Operation
On behalf of its customers, the Company acts in the capacity of a moving company, unless refers to itself as a broker and acts as such. In this capacity, the Company concludes agreements with moving contractors and any other involved subcontractors (hereinafter- the “Movers”).
Although Movers are not required to give estimates, most Movers do provide estimates when requested.
The Movers may charge you for providing a binding estimate which must clearly describe the service and all services provided.
If you have requested the Mover to provide more services than those included in the onsite estimate, such as destination charges (i.e., long carry charges, extra stair carry charges, appliances, heavy carry, stopovers) often not known at origin, the Mover may demand full payment for those added services at time of the moving services.
If you agree to onsite estimate, you are responsible for paying the charges due by cash, certified check, bank check (one drawn by a bank on itself and signed by an officer of the bank) and credit card. However, Mover reserves the right to request any other method of payment that would be reasonable.
The Company will provide the customer with written/oral quote.
Accessorial (Additional) Services– services such as supplying packing materials, appliance carry, piano stair carriers, heavy carry charges that you request to be performed (or are necessary because of landlord requirements or other special circumstances). Charges for these services are in addition to the initial quote charges.
Flight Charge – an extra charge for carrying items up or down flights of stairs.
Inventory – the detailed descriptive list of your household goods showing the number and condition of each item.
Linehaul Charges– charges for the vehicle transportation portion of your move. These charges apply in addition to the additional service charges.
Long Carry – an added charge for carrying articles excessive distances between the Mover’s vehicle and your residence.
Peak Season Rates – higher linehaul charges that are applicable during the summer months, as well as higher rates for the moving services.
Our quotes validity is limited in time, either according to the statutory provisions or according to the particular specifications in the quote. Our quotes are confidential and may only be viewed by the persons in charge. We reserve the property rights and copyrights with regard to all drafts. All quotes become invalid if not accepted within 30 days after submission.
The Company reserves the right to add any additional fees for other reasonable charges that were not known beforehand.
The customer is responsible to accept the quote in written and/or orally provided by the Company and by his/her acceptance of the quote the customer agrees and understands these terms and conditions.
Breaks during the move
Movers are allowed to take 15 minutes breaks every 2 hours. The time spent on these breaks is counted towards the total time of the move and charged to the customer at their hourly rate.
Terms of Payment
- Payment has to be effected as cash in advance, cash upon completion of service or by payment order in advance:
a. 75% will be paid by the customer before unloading the truck.
b. 25% will be paid by the customer upon final completion of the service.
- - A commission of 4% is charged for payment by credit card (Visa and MasterCard).
The Company reserves the right to request a different method of payment. Retention of payments and offsetting of outstanding invoices against counterclaims which we did not accept is not permitted.
The Company provides the best services to its customers. However, in some occasions such as “force major” and inability to provide the customer with the moving service which is beyond its control the Company will not be responsible to compensate the customer in case of cancellation.Prices and Orders
All prices included in price lists and flyers are non-binding. The specified prices refer to the following means of payment: cash payment, advance payment by bank transfer and payment upon completion of service. In the event of changes during order fulfillment due to price increases, additional fiscal charges, third party rate increases or major currency fluctuations, we reserve the right to adjust prices accordingly. In the event of cancellation of an order, the costs for our activities will be charged to the customer. The incoming written/oral order for service is not a contract. Should customer’s move be cancelled or delayed or if the customer decides not to use the Mover, the customer should promptly cancel the order.Review
The Company carefully reviews all incoming orders. However, the Company is not obligated to perform weight or measurement checks. Should the Company identify unclear points, the Movers shall clarify these with the customer as quickly as possible.The Customer’s Liability

- Packaging by the customer or his/her subcontractors.
- Incorrect, inaccurate or missing information provided by the customer in the order and not confirmed in the quote.Claims

2. For small items the complaint shall be filled within 30 days after completion of the move.Contractors
