This document sets out the terms under which:
we agree to provide you with the Door to Door Service; and you agree to meet the obligations set out in the agreement.
The price of the Services (“the Price”) is the Company’s quoted price and is exclusive of VAT. Quotations will be valid for 30 days from issue. The Company is only bound by orders which have been made in writing. An accepted order can only be cancelled or varied with the Company’s consent. In most cases cancellations are subject to a £120 cancellation fee per shift.
LGG Marketing’s standard price is 5.5.p per leaflet for everything over 10,000 leaflets. This price is for leaflets weighing up to 25g each. Leaflets weighing above the 25g standard will be charged a bespoke price depending on weight, size and type of leaflet. The bespoke pricing will be confirmed upon enquiry and price will be set in your invoice.
LGG Marketing Ltd will issue you with an invoice for the distribution charges, normally before the first day of each campaign. The amount on the invoice will be based on the number and weight of items for that distribution. The invoice will also include any other charges that apply in line with the agreement.
Unless the Company agrees otherwise, the Client will pay the Price plus VAT in advance, and it is the clients’ responsibility to ensure that the Company receives the full cleared funds before 2pm two days before the distribution date. If the payment has not been received in full, the distribution may automatically be cancelled and a £120 included VAT cancellation fee per shift will apply.
If you disagree with the amount of an invoice, you must pay the invoice in full until we settle the dispute. If appropriate we will then refund any overpayment you have made.
If the items you present for delivery weigh more than you have declared in your initial order, we will be entitled to make an extra charge according to the tariff that applies at that time. In these circumstances, you agree that we will not be liable for delivering any items late or failing to deliver them at all.
