4.3 Our contractors will endeavour to undertake the clearance on the date and at any time agreed but there may be delays due to circumstances beyond our control. In this case, we will inform you and, if necessary, arrange a revised date as soon as reasonably possible. Where our contractors provide you with an estimated time of arrival this should not be construed as offering any form of guarantee as to the time upon which we will attend to perform the clearance.
4.4 You agree to provide our contractors with free and safe access to the premises from where the rubbish is to be removed. You shall notify us of any special circumstances which may be relevant to our quotation, including any access issues, if any items are large or heavy, if the clearance would necessitate working at height, if the rubbish is secured, if there is likely to be a dispute as to whether the rubbish can be cleared, or if we are unable to park free of charge. If you do not notify us of such special circumstances, or provide us with incomplete or inaccurate information or instructions, our contractors may either make an additional charge to cover any extra work or costs that are required or, if we are unable to undertake the clearance, charge a Wasted Journey Fee
4.5 You confirm that you have the full authority for our contractors to collect and dispose of the rubbish. You shall indemnify the contractors from and against any cost or expense we suffer or incur from any third party as a result of you not having the authority for them to clear the rubbish.
4.6 If our contractors detect or suspect there may be any asbestos or other hazardous or dangerous substances or materials on site they may vacate the premises, and will not be responsible for further clearance and disposal. In such an event, you shall still be fully liable to pay our contractors for any waste already removed. If we need to appoint an expert to remove such materials already loaded onto our vans, we reserve the right to charge you, if at the time of removal we were unaware of any asbestos or other hazardous or dangerous substances or materials contained in any items or materials removed.
Kollect recommends each of the contractor's, service professionals and third party bodies but cannot be held responsible in any way for their actions. Customers should always use caution when interacting with contractors to protect their property and safety, as you would when interacting with anybody whom you do not know.
Kollect cannot be held responsible for contractors conduct, and customers hereby release the company and its affiliates from any liability related thereto. Kollect will not be liable for any claim, injury or damage arising in connections with your use of the service to arrange a booking. All our contractors are independent operators with their own insurance policies.

Kollect is a booking engine to arrange a contract between you and the third party, service professional, or contractor.
