By using and registering with our app, You confirm that You accept these terms of use and that You agree to comply with them.

If You do not agree to these terms, You must not use our app.

We recommend that You print or retain a copy of these terms for future reference.

There are other terms that may apply to You

These terms of use refer to the following additional terms, which also apply to Your use of our app:

Basis of contract

Each time You engage a man and van (“MAV”) via the app this will be a stand-alone and separate contract between You and the MAV. Each contract between You and a MAV will come into force once You have agreed the scope of the services to be provided by the MAV (“Services”) via the app. All terms associated with any such contract must be documented via the app.

Please note that any contract to engage a MAV is a contract between You and the relevant MAV and is not a contract between You and Us.

You shall:

  1. ensure that the any information You provide when requesting the services of a MAV is complete and accurate (this may include things such as the size, weight, current location, destination location and access details (both to current location and destination location) of the items to be moved by the MAV);
  2. co-operate with both Us and the MAV in all matters relating to the Services;
  3. provide the MAV, its employees, agents, consultants and subcontractors, with access to Your premises, office accommodation and other facilities as reasonably required by the MAV for the purposes of enabling the MAV to provide the Services;
  4. provide the MAV with such information and materials as the MAV may reasonably require in order to supply the Services, and ensure that such information is complete and accurate in all material respects;
  5. provide Us with such information and materials as We may reasonably require in order to monitor the supply of the Services and the MAV’s obligations to Us, and ensure that such information is complete and accurate in all material respects;
  6. obtain and maintain all necessary licences, permissions and consents which may be required for the Services before the date on which the Services are to start;
  7. comply with all applicable laws, including health and safety laws;
  8. ensure that all communication between You and the MAV relating to the arrangements between You and the MAV is made via the app;
  9. notify Us via the app in a timely manner, and in any event within 3 days of the Services being provided, once the Services have been supplied to Your reasonable satisfaction;
  10. notify Us via the app in a timely manner, and in any event within 3 days of the Services being provided, if the Services are not supplied to Your satisfaction or in accordance with the terms agreed between You and the MAV;
  11. co-operate with both the MAV and Us in relation to any dispute over the Services, the contract between You and the MAV or compliance with any specification agreed between You and the MAV relating to the Services; and
  12. act at all times in good faith to both Us and the MAV.

Payment for Services

The charges for the Services (Charges) shall be such charges as agreed between You and the MAV via the App.

You acknowledges that the MAV has appointed Us as its agent for the collection of any sum due from You to the MAV. We will take a commission of the fee You agree with the MAV as such the price agreed with the MAV via the app is the price You pay.

When You agree to engage a MAV and the price has been agreed You will provide Your payment details via the app which will be processed by Stripe Inc or one of its subsidiary companies who will hold Your credit card and other payment details and process Your payment.

Once the MAV has supplied the Services You will, within 3 days of the date of the Services provision, confirm via the app that the Services have been supplied. Once You have confirmed the Services have been provided, or You fail to provide such confirmation or notify US of a complaint in relation to the services within 3 days of the date of the Services provision, payment will be taken as per the details provided at the point of Booking.

If (1) You do not provide confirmation that either the Services have been provided or that there is an issue with the Services within 3 days of the Services being provided or (2) the MAV is not able to provide the Services because You have not complied with Your obligations as set out in the Your obligations section above, then payment will automatically be taken.

In the event that that there is an issue with the Services that have been provided by the MAV which is notified to Us in within the 3 day timescale stipulated above then the dispute between You and the MAV shall be referred to Us who may determine the dispute in accordance with the Our dispute resolution policy [INSERT HYPERLINK TO DISPUTE RESOLUTION POLICY] Once the dispute has been resolved then payment will be made as appropriate based on the outcome of the dispute.


Where You have booked the Services of a MAV via the app (a “Booking”) then You may cancel such Booking at no cost so long as such Booking is cancelled more than 24 hours prior to the time specified for the Booking.

Where You cancel a Booking within 24 hours prior to the agreed time of the Booking then You will be liable for the full cost of the Booking with payment being taken in accordance with the Payment for Services section above.

Please note that if You request the MAV to provide the Services on a date which is less than 14 days from the date of the Booking then Your right to cancel that contract/Booking under the Consumer Contract Regulations 2013 does not apply, however, You may cancel the contract/Booking in accordance with the methods set out in this section.

If the MAV cancels the Booking or does not provide the Services then You will be entitled to a full refund of any sums paid.
